Adam Schiff Tells Tapper Instead of Redacting Mueller Report Some Intel Could Just ‘Be Declassified’

‘If there’s the classified annex, for example, that may need to be close-hold’

RUSH EXCERPT:

SCHIFF: “Well, look, if there are classified portions of the report, if there’s the classified annex, for example, that may need to be close-hold, depending on whether that reveals sources and methods. There may even be some parts of that, though, that can be declassified in the public interest. And, in fact, if you look at the Mueller indictments, those two dealing with the Russians, that went into very granular detail. That would have been previously classified information about what the budget was for that social media farm, about private e-mails between members of that social media farm and their family.”
