When Will Texas Republicans Stop Falling for this Progressive Trick?

Last week, numerous news outlets reported that the House Intelligence Committee unanimously voted to release a Democrat memo written by progressive Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) in response to the FBI/Surveillance memo released by Republican Chairman Devin Nunes in late January.

Texas Reps. Mike Conaway (R-Odessa) and Will Hurd (R-San Antonio) serve on the Intelligence panel and voted to release both memos.

Over the last week, Empower Texans has heard from other members of the House who were unimpressed with the vote to release the Schiff memo:

US Army Veteran and Congressman Lee Zeldin wrote on Twitter:

U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on the Fox News Channel:

The president was in no win situation the way Schiff constructed the memo.

And finally, a tweet from President Trump:

As a reminder, on January 29, 2018, all Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee voted against releasing the memo written by Devin Nunes.

Yet, when a memo written by Schiff to rebut the charges raised by Nunes came before the committee days later, news reports indicate it was a unanimous vote by the committee to make the document public.

President Trump is not bullied by this progressive trick of fake bipartisanship, choosing not to harm national security by revealing sources and methods.

It’s unclear why Conaway and Hurd abdicated their responsibility to protect national security secrets in their zeal for bipartisanship with Shifty Adam Schiff.

Serving on the House Intelligence Committee means doing the right thing, not the politically correct thing. Yielding to the progressive agenda and voting to reveal sources and methods of Intelligence Communication is simply wrong.
