A few months ago as we recall because I was one of many who wrote about it we all thought that President Trump was going to declassify documents on the handling by the FBI of the Trump-Russia probe. The American people are owed this information considering of the phony dossier that was sent to the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to spy on Americans working for the Trump presidential campaign. You would think that Trump would be angry enough about this happening that he would be the first on the list that would want it declassified and he was about to do so but he was talked out of it at the last minute. Well he must take it out of the back burner and put it in the forefront.
The following was posted by investigative reporter Sara Carter, published by Sara A Carter: ” Republican lawmakers–along with their investigators–are vested in hope that President Donald Trump will declassify a slew of documents tied to the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia probe and interview more witnesses before the House flips to the Democrats after the new year.”
“It leaves less than two months before the lawmakers find themselves battling senior Democratic leadership who have made it clear that they don’t want the declassification of a number of key Russia investigation documents. Those documents include the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page, the FBI’s interviews with demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr and the ‘Gang of Eight’ documents that contain the details of the bureau’s investigation. It also includes the exculpatory information withheld from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) when the bureau sought its warrant to spy on Page.”
“Time is running out, but don’t expect the Republican lawmakers in the House to drop the fight. A number of congressional sources and sources close to the investigation say they will push for the declassification and plan to interview more witnesses before the end of the year.”
“As for the Senate, despite the Republicans remaining in control, there is not a high expectation that the Senate lawmakers will continue to investigate with the same vigor of the House.”
“Republican lawmakers said they are hopeful Trump will declassify the documents and make what can be available to the public. On Wednesday Trump said he was “seriously” considering declassifying the documents, which were turned over to Horowitz in September. At the time, Trump had already announced that he would declassify the documents but in a quick reversal, stated on Twitter September 21, “I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of the various UNREDACTED documents. They agreed to release them but stated that so doing may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe.”
“He then stated in the same Tweet, “Also, key Allies’ called to ask not to release.”
As you can see from above the President took a back-step from declassifying these documents and it looks like one of the key judgment concerns Trump had was that there were some key Allies that asked for them not to be released. One of those allies naturally was Great Britain but as far as I’m concerned that’s the way it goes. Trump should be concerned that because of this phony operation that was put forth by the deep state which was Marxist Obama on down he could have lost the election and he didn’t only because of some sloppy mistakes that were put forth by then Attorney General Loretta Lynch and then FBI Director James Comey. These documents must be declassified and presented to the American people, it’s better to do it this way than you know as well as I do they will be leaked out in a drip, drip fashion. Lets hope the President puts aside these people whoever they may be who are buzzing in his ears of their preference of not declassifying and President Trump goes back to relying on that number one asset of his which is his common sense and declassify the documents, the documents for the American people to get closure on this issue and to see how the deep state schemed to take down the candidacy and the presidency of Donald J Trump. Mr. President, all I can say and request is “do it!”
