President Trump Responds to DOJ/FBI Refusal to Release Spygate Docs

10

The president said the Inspector General is reviewing the documents to determine if the documents should be released.

He tweetedI met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents. They agreed to release them but stated that so doing may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe. Also, key Allies’ called to ask not to release. Therefore, the Inspector General…..

… has been asked to review these documents on an expedited basis. I believe he will move quickly on this (and hopefully other things which he is looking at). In the end I can always declassify if it proves necessary. Speed is very important to me – and everyone!

The Inspector General is Michael Horowitz, an official many people trust.

THE COUP THAT MIGHT NOT BE A COUP

Earlier this week, the DOJ/FBI said they were not releasing the documents the President ordered declassified.

These are the documents being slow-walked to Congress, which the Republican congressional investigators say they need to complete their probe. House Intel Committee Chair, Devin Nunes also says that it will also show the American people the Trump-Russia collusion probe is a fraud. Chairman Nunes believes there is exculpatory evidence in the redacted documents.

Documents already released which the DOJ/FBI said were too secret to be released turned out to simply be embarrassing to the agency.

This probe is tearing the country apart.

The DOJ and FBI officials have not turned these documents over to the congressional committees and would not immediately hand over the documents after the President ordered them declassified. They not only wouldn’t hand them over unredacted, but they also said they would review them “methodically” — again.

THE DOCUMENTS IN QUESTION

The documents include the FISA warrants to spy on Carter Page and the text messages among dirty dealers, Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS, Bruce, and Nellie Ohr, Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, and Peter Strzok.

Trump also ordered the declassification of FBI notes from interviews used in connection with the Page FISAs as well as notes from interviews with Bruce Ohr, the Justice Department official who met numerous times with Christopher Steele, the author of the anti-Trump dossier.

  1. “perceived” negative impact?? This is sophistry at its finest.

    Key “Allies” ask not to release?? More sophistry. There certainly seems to be evidence that these so-called Allies were working Against the US. In other words “meddling” in an election. What’s the possibility of NATO remarks and Brexit having an impact on the actions of these “Allies”.

    The House has a permanent select committee on Intelligence and by all that’s been revealed it is time for a House Permanent Select Committee on “Corruption”, which should be tasked to investigate the Bureaucracy.

    • The IG will determine perceived impact to allies? The IG is a DOJ watchdog, an auditor. It is not the state department.

      Trump’s explanation is poor, as if he is covering up.

  2. Trump’s order was not followed and he accepted that. That is weak. He gives no deadlines for any of this. That is weak. He is counting on the IG, run by obstructer Sessions, to assist. That is weak.

    Nothing may come out before the election. If the House is lost Trump’s weakness will have helped.

    • FBI/Justice clearly stated they will comply. They requested additional review. Trump relented partially and temporarily to get IG opinion. He has all the leverage now.

  3. “key Allies’ called to ask not to release” you mean the UK and Australia who were in on this spygate against you PDJT???? here is a tweet from George Papadopoulos on 9/20/2018………..I repeat: the British and Australian governments were illegally spying on the Trump Campaign by April 2016. Let that sink in.

  4. Some more George Papadopoulos tweets from today…………After reports are finally out that the British and Australian governments were actively spying and trying to sabotage the Trump campaign, those two governments called the president to ask for him not to declassify any FISA documents. Strange………..The day that BRITISH intelligence source, Stefan Halper, lured me to London so that the British MI6 could spy on the campaign, the British Ministry of Foreign Affairs invited me to their offices to talk about Trump and what a threat him supporting Breexit was…………the dam is starting to break,

  5. Maybe “key allies” were just seeking a heads up about whose butts were about to be exposed for criminality or at least embarrassment.
