Over the weekend, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) called on Trump to release the Schiff memo, while the House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jerrold Nadler (D-New York) sent out a six-page letter on Sunday challenging the Nunes memo to the House Democrats.
Now, Schiff, and the other Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, will lead the way running interference in their efforts to hinder the revelation of the real collusion, between those in the Clinton campaign and the Obama administration working to help prevent the election of their political opponent, Donald Trump.
Campbell's piece was published Friday, the same day the Trump administration published an intelligence memo compiled by House Intelligence Committee Republicans that alleges Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
Schiff has branded the GOP memo "a political hit job" and has questioned whether Nunes had co-ordinated with the White House in drafting the document seized on by the president to vent his grievances against the nation's premier law enforcement agencies.
Democrats have argued that the Nunes memo, which was released last week, was misleading and one-sided.
"Yes, there's a photo of more than a dozen people sitting around a conference table, including Papadopoulos and Trump", Jack Langer, Nunes's communications director, wrote in an email to Yahoo News. Or recall how Richard Nixon and his attorney general, John Mitchell, politicized the IRS and Justice Department in an attempt to punish their political enemies. He has said his memo is based on the same underlying classified material that Republicans used for their version, but will point out its errors and omissions.
On Saturday, Trump tweeted that the controversial Republican memo, which was declassified by Trump and released by the committee the day before, "totally vindicates" his claim that Mueller's investigation is a "witch hunt". In a sign of an emerging split in the president's party, four Republican members of the intelligence committee - Representatives Trey Gowdy, Chris Stewart, Will Hurd and Brad Wenstrup - said on Monday that the memo should not be allowed to undermine Mueller's investigation.
Even with the committee voting to make the Democrats' memo public, Trump could decide to keep it secret.
We have an update now on a story we've been following today about dueling memos from the House Intelligence Committee. Nunes strongly implies, but doesn't quite say, that without the dossier, which was misrepresented by prosecutors, there would be no Russian Federation investigation.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced in the daily press briefing that the meeting had happened. In their mind, the memo provides clear evidence that there is no basis for any investigation into the Trump campaign's improper coordination with Russian Federation during the 2016 election - but they have to essentially invent a document that does not exist in order to get there.
One Florida Republican who is helping run the Russian Federation investigation, Rep. Tom Rooney, said he though there wouldn't be much in the Schiff memo to redact. But dismissing Rosenstein also could be a way to strike at the Mueller investigation.
