Last night, Rep. Adam Schiff, in what is starting to look like a desperate attempt to keep the infamous memo from being released, popped on Twitter with his own breaking news and alleged that Nunes ALTERED the memo with ‘material changes’ that were not approved by the Committee.
BREAKING: Discovered late tonight that Chairman Nunes made material changes to the memo he sent to White House – changes not approved by the Committee. White House therefore reviewing a document the Committee has not approved for release. pic.twitter.com/llhQK9L7l6

Wow, that sounds serious, Adam.
Except for a source from the House Intel that described these so-called ‘material changes’:
Just talked with House Intel source. Said total changes to memo were: A) Unknown number of 'grammatical and clarifying' fixes. B) One change requested by FBI due to sources & methods concerns. C) One two-word change requested by Democrats for accuracy. House Intel GOP statement: pic.twitter.com/ZkNuMBoLZK

NUNES FIXED GRAMMATICAL ERRORS?!
And made a change requested by the FBI …
And another change requested by the Democrats.
Clearly, this is Putin’s doing. *eye roll*
Suggest corrected pronunciation of Adam's Schiff last name – changing last two letters from ff to tt 🙂

So…At first Adam tells us we aren't smart enough to read the memo. Now…we're told the memo has grammatical and sourcing issues? There must be some really damming things in this little memo to be so afraid for me to read it!

It’s starting to feel like Adam doesn’t want us to read the memo.
Wonder why that could be.

At this point, they would be better off just to release the freakin’ thing and be done with it. The appearance that they are trying to hide it from Americans only makes the whole thing seem likely far worse than it actually is.

But Russia! Trump! ELEVENTY!
C’mon man, release it, if for no other reason than we can stop hearing about it.
