President Trump has ordered the declassification of FISA documents related to the Russia-Trump investigation. Americans will finally have some answers. Expect the media to say it’s a no-never-mind but it won’t be.

He ordered the declassification of 19 pages of the application to the secret FISA court that approves surveillance on U.S. citizens, all FBI reports of interviews with Justice Department official Bruce G. Ohr prepared in connection with the Russia investigation, and all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all FISA applications regarding Mr. Page.

Mr. Trump also directed the Department of Justice and FBI to publicly release all text messages relating to the Russia investigation from the key players in the genesis of the probe of Trump campaign collusion with the Kremlin.

Representatives Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy have asked that the documents be released to their respective committees. They are currently investigating potential corruption at the DOJ and FBI.

  1. How soon before an anonymous source is reported how this “declassifying intelligence” will forever destroy the very foundations of democracy, with renewed calls for immediate impeachment. Democrats will jump on the bandwagon to prevent and seek a Court injunction to ‘prevent’ the President from effecting the release. Any bets.

  2. What’s his next step.

    Schiff on FISA release: With respect to some of these materials, I have been previously informed by the FBI and Justice Department that they would consider their release a red line that must not be crossed as they may compromise sources and methods.

    Schiff: Trump, in a clear abuse of power, has decided to intervene in a pending law enforcement investigation by ordering the selective release of materials he believes are helpful to his defense team and thinks will advance a false narrative.

  3. And Swalwell takes the bait.

    Lawless. He is absolutely lawless. @realDonaldTrump is the subject of an investigation. Using his power to selectively release classified information is an abuse of power. His days of unchecked abuse are numbered. Tick tock. We will just mark this as another exhibit.

    I wonder if he understands the word “subject”. In his context it can mean he is the ‘subject’ of illegal attacks Against Him. A ‘target’ is one who is in violation against the subject. As has been said, Trump was not the target, but the subject. This was clear from day one of its use.

  4. Since this Trump made this announcement , CNN/MSNBC have not said a word about it, they are focused on the Kavanaugh Christine Blasey Ford BS, they give a few minutes to the floods on SC/NC, their puppet masters will have a nothing burger about Trumps announcement soon, meanwhile, Robert Mueller Delays Flynn Sentencing, yet again, Until After The Election – November 28th…this is the 5th delay, CNN/MSNBC why aren’t you asking what the hell is going on Mulehead Mueller?

  5. This is just UNBELIEVABLE in the EXTREME. What the HELL.

    Here you have Democrat Leadership actually Giving Orders to Rosenstein, Wray and Coates to Disobey a Direct Order of the President.
    The “abuse of power” they attribute to the President is in fact a Constitutional crisis perpetrated by the four. The four speak of “assurances” that were provided to them. WHAT assurances, to subvert a President. It is nothing short of treasonous.

    Once again the use of the word “subject” is brought up. The two sides are a “target” and a “subject”. A Target is a perpetrator upon a Subject. In June of 2018 the DOJ / FBI apparently gave “assurances” they would Not provide the White House or the President’s attorneys with access to sensitive information which were briefed to “designated Members”. This appears to be a “coup in progress” in which ‘designated members’ were party to.

    All of the meetings’ attendees “agreed” the information was among the most sensitive type and be protected accordingly. The involvement of the White House Counsel, or any component of the White House is to be considered improper and profoundly troubling. The four have demanded a briefing prior to any disclosure, the review process, officials expected to be involved, proposed redaction plans and should not proceed further until the “Gang of Eight” have been briefed ‘in person’.

    The Republicans should Immediately move to Censure these four in an attempt to subvert the Constitutional authority of the Plenary powers of the President. Never before have I seen such a wanton act of desperation. Brennan also has called for such subversion. We can only conclude there is evidence so compelling that will shake the “Deep State” to its core. Has there ever been such a “demand” by Congress to the Executive Branch to cede their authority over to Congress. It will be interesting to see what becomes of this letter of demand.
