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.
