Rep. Adam Schiff, D- Calif., ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, speaks to members of the media, Monday, Jan. 29, 2018 on Capitol Hill in Washington. Brushing aside opposition from the Department of Justice, Republicans on the House intelligence committee have voted to release a classified memo that purports to show improper use of surveillance by the FBI and Justice Department in the Russia investigation.

Should the Democrats’ memo be released if the Nunes memo is? The left thinks so. A roundup of editorials Friday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the left:

1. Release the memo, and everything else

From U.S. News and World Report: If the Republican memo is released there is no reason the Democrats’ memo shouldn’t be. 

2. Democrats should spill classified info on Trump

From Slate: If it takes a reading on the House floor, then Democrats should release their memo.

3.  The Nunes fiasco grows more preposterous by the hour

From The Washington Post: The memo will give Democrats a message to campaign on.
