Just before President Trump headed to the Capitol for last night’s “State of the Union”, the Washington Post reported that top Justice Department officials made a last-ditch plea on Monday to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly about the dangers of publicly releasing the memo.

Shortly before the House Intelligence Committee voted to make the document public, Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein warned Kelly that the four-page memo prepared by House Republicans could jeopardize classified information and implored the president to reconsider his support for making it public.

But those pleas from Rosenstein – who isn’t exactly the West Wing’s favorite lawman, and whose name apparently appears in the memo – have apparently fallen on deaf ears.

Last night, President Trump promised a lawmaker that the memo would “100%” be released now that the House Intel Committee has voted to approve its release.

And during a Fox News Radio interview with Brian Kilmeade, Chief of Staff John Kelly added that the memo would be publicly released “pretty quick.”

“I’ll let all the experts decide that when it’s released. This president wants everything out so the American people can make up their own minds,” he said.

While Democrats have accused Republicans of using the memo to try and interfere with the Mueller probe, the Wall Street Journal editorial board today explained that Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes adhered to procedure during the process of compiling and distributing the memo. The Democrats, who have compiled a memo of their own, have not.
