Trump’s White House wants memo released because they’re ‘freaked out’ over Mueller probe

From Chicago Tribune:

Democratic U.S. Rep. Mike Quigley on Thursday condemned the prospect of President Donald Trump clearing the way for the release of a controversial Republican memo critical of the FBI.

Quigley sits on the House Intelligence Committee, and the memo was written by the panel’s Republican staff. The Chicago lawmaker contended in an interview that the memo’s purpose is to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“The bottom line is the White House is freaked out because they’ve already indicted four close-in people,” said Quigley, Illinois’ only lawmaker on the committee. He heralded Mueller as “a decorated war veteran with impeccable, bipartisan credentials.”
