It’s about time!
President Trump has officially ordered that all documents related to the Russia Collusion Hoax be declassified.
He did this because he knows the American people deserve to know the truth about what happened.
Here’s more on the breaking story from the New York Post:
President Trump on Tuesday said he had declassified all documents tied to federal probes into Russian interference in the 2016 election and Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server for government emails.
“I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!” Trump tweeted.
The president’s announcement came after National Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe declassified documents that revealed ex-CIA Director John Brennan had briefed former President Obama on a claim that Clinton ordered “a campaign plan to stir up a scandal” by linking Trump to Russia in 2016.
It'll be interesting to see what turns up as these documents are declassified.
What was the Clinton campaign really up to?
What did Obama know?
More importantly, what did Sleepy Joe Biden know?
As Fox News reports, Republicans are praising President Trump for his move to declassify documents:
Last year, the president gave Attorney General Bill Barr authority to declassify any documents related to surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016. Trump, at the time, also ordered members of the intelligence community to cooperate with Barr’s probe.
Allies of the president, including Republicans on Capitol Hill leading their own investigations into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, have criticized officials like FBI Director Christopher Wray and CIA Director Gina Haspel, claiming that the directors have been blocking the release of documents.
The top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who has been at the forefront of investigating the origins of the Russia probe for years, and has “long called” for declassification, said it is “gratifying” that the president is pushing for the release of the remaining documents.
“Numerous perpetrators weaponized our intelligence agencies against a political campaign—that’s a major threat to Americans’ civil liberties and to democratic governance,” Nunes told Fox News. “I have long called for maximum declassification and transparency so Americans can see the true scale of the abuses that occurred.”
Nunes added: “It’s gratifying that President Trump has decided to get the truth out.”
On the other side of the Capitol, Senate Homeland Security Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., who has been, and is currently leading an investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, praised the president’s move.
"I truly hope Directors Wray and Haspell follow their commander-in-chief's order,” Johnson told Fox News. “The American people deserve the truth. What will they continue to hide?”
If any signs of foul play from Obama, Clinton, or Biden turn up, they should be investigated immediately.
It's likely they used the power of the executive branch to try and stop Trump from winning in 2016.
And they should be held accountable if so.
