One of Donald Trump’s last acts in office was to release more information to the American public.
The Democrats’ shocking abuse of power is all coming to light.
Barack Obama was horrified to learn that Trump declassified this information.
The way that Trump was treated by the FBI during the 2016 election should be one of the biggest scandals of modern American history.
But Democrats and the mainstream media are so wrapped up in protecting their own that they can’t even admit that Barack Obama did anything wrong.
Only one low-level bureaucrat has gotten in legal trouble when the FBI lied to other departments in the government, using information paid for by the Clinton campaign, in order to spy on members of the Trump campaign in what the FBI termed the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.
Trump ordered the declassification of Justice Department documents related to the FBI’s investigations on Tuesday night.
The memo said, “Portions of the documents in the binder have remained classified and have not been released to the Congress or the public.” Trump “requested the documents so that a declassification review could be performed and so I could determine to what extent materials in the binder should be released in unclassified form,” the memo added.
The President had “determined that the materials in that binder should be declassified to the maximum extent possible,” the memo said. But, as part of the “iterative process of the declassification review.”
The FBI objected to the release of information on Sunday claiming that the Bureau had a “continuing objection to any further declassification of the materials in the binder” and “on the basis of a review that included Intelligence Community equities, identified the passages that it believed it was most crucial to keep from public disclosure,” according to the memo.
Trump said he would “accept the redactions proposed for continued classification by the FBI.”
“I hereby declassify the remaining materials in the binder,” Trump said in the memo, addressed to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, and acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen. “This is my final determination under the declassification review and I have directed the Attorney General to implement the redactions proposed in the FBI’s Jan. 17 submission and return to the White House an appropriately redacted copy.”
Trump added that his declassification “does not extend to materials that must be protected from disclosure pursuant to orders of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court” and that the acting attorney general “has conducted an appropriate review to ensure that materials provided in the binder may be disclosed by the White House in accordance with applicable law.”
The documents have not yet reached the public.
