The Trump administration announced last week that they would not release the Schiff memo unless national security and law enforcement concerns were met.
“Trump will not approve of releasing Dem memo, per person with knowledge. Instead, he will tell legislators that memo needs changes before it could be released,” reported the Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey.

In an interview with WMAL Monday, former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova expanded on what the law enforcement concerns are.

DIGENOVA: “We’re going to see the [Democrat memo]. It will be heavily edited by the FBI and the Department of Justice and the CIA. The most important part of this story is that on Friday, February the 9th, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray wrote a letter to the White House counsel Don McGahn that they could not agree to the publication of the Schiff memo because it contained national security and law enforcement concerns. It was actually the FBI and the Department of Justice says no [to releasing the memo]. The most important part of that letter is when it says… law enforcement concerns. What does that mean? It means, that there is a criminal investigation underway and release of some of the information in the memo by Mr. Schiff will affect that criminal investigation. I wonder who they are investigating? And the answer is pretty clear. They are investigating the people at the FBI and the DOJ who provided false information to the FISA court over a number of years, including, involving Carter Page.”
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the dossier was used to apply for a spy warrant on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page:
* The Steele dossier formed an essential part of the intial and all three renewal FISA applications against Carter Page.
* Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA Court without the Steele dossier information.
* The political origins of the Steele dossier were known to senior DOJ and FBI officials, but excluded from the FISA applications.
Does this mean Rosenstein, McCabe and Comey are under criminal investigation?
On January 29th Rep Adam Schiff (D-CA) dropped a bombshell in a press conference.
Schiff revealed House Intel Committee Republicans opened an investigation into the DOJ and FBI.
