House GOP gives Trump leeway over whether to block Schiff memo

Moreover, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee refuse to say if they would override the President if he blocks the Democratic rebuttal or redacts key portions of it — despite their unanimous vote on Monday to release it.

“I’m not going to speculate,” said Rep. Mike Conaway, who is running the House Russia investigation, when asked if he would override the President. “I’ll have to see what they’re objecting to before I can make a call on that.”

“I don’t do hypotheticals,” said House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy when asked if the House would insist on the Democratic memo’s release if the President refused to allows its declassification.
