Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie told The Daily Caller Wednesday the Democratic House Intelligence memo will remain concealed because it “discloses sources and methods that can’t be released.”

“They’ve already reciprocated with their own memo, which I’ve already read today, and it’s talking past the Republicans, it makes statements that are probably true, but doesn’t really dispute the statements in the Republican memo, and I don’t think the Democrat memo is going to get released,” Massie told TheDC.

“The reason why it’s not going to get released is the Democrat memo is about three times longer than the Republican one and theirs discloses sources and methods that can’t be released,” the Republican continued.

Democrats huddled together for a press conference Monday after House Republicans voted to release their own intelligence memo, and California Rep. Adam Schiff led the charge in their response. Democratic Washington Rep. Denny Heck said the Republican memo will serve to “feed the beast of this propaganda machine” on CNN after the press conference.

The Daily Caller reached out to Schiff, but his office did not return a request for comment via email or phone call.

California Rep. Devin Nunes and and South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy have spearheaded the GOP memo’s compilation based on FBI and DOJ information.
