Trump Vows to Expose Clinton-FBI Collusion by Declassifying FISA Docs
President preparing to expose federal agents for colluding with top Democrats
Donald Trump has vowed to step in and override Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to expose collusion between Hillary Clinton and the FBI.
The president says he is going to declassify FISA documents proving federal agents have colluded with the Clinton campaign.
According to former IBC Bureau Chief Paul Sperry, Trump is preparing to declassify 20 redacted pages of a June 2017 FISA renewal.
In conjunction, President Trump will also release 63 pages of emails and notes between “Ohr & Steele,” and FD-302 summaries of 12 interviews – In reference to twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr and/or his wife Nellie, both of whom were working with opposition research firm Fusion GPS to investigate Trump.
Zerohedge.com reports: As Cristina Laila of the Gateway Pundit notes, Rosenstein and then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe both signed off on a June 2017 FISA surveillance warrant renewal on former Trump aide Carter Page.
Meanwhile, several frustrated GOP lawmakers have called for the full release of the requested documents – with Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) calling for their declassification recently, and Meadows and other members drawing up articles of impeachment against Rosenstein, only to withdraw them shortly thereafter.
Look this month for POTUS to declassify ...— Paul Sperry (@paulsperry_) August 5, 2018
-- 20 redacted pages of June 2017 FISA renewal
... and possibly ...
-- 63 pages of emails and notes b/t Ohr & Steele
-- FD-302 summaries of 12 FBI interviews w/ Ohr re Steele
... and watch Dems and media toadies become apoplectic
It has come to the point that @realDonaldTrump himself needs to & should declassify the Carter Page FISA warrant applications & ONLY redact sources & methods that must be redacted. There is NO good reason why the public has not yet seen this information.— Lee Zeldin (@RepLeeZeldin) July 23, 2018
Potentially groundbreaking development here. The Carter Page FISA docs should be declassified and further unredacted (protecting only sources and methods) so Americans can know the truth.— Mark Meadows (@RepMarkMeadows) July 22, 2018
If the previous admin was funneling campaign research toward surveillance, we need to know. https://t.co/vWfeatCdUk
In June, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee asked President Trump to declassify key sections of Carter Page’s FISA warrant application, according to a letter obtained by Fox News.
“Because DOJ (Department of Justice) and FBI continue to obstruct the Committee's investigation, it is time to put the facts in the public domain,” the letter, dated June 14, states.
The letter states, that on its face, the bureau’s reliance on the dossier appears to violate strict, internal FBI rules.
“The Committee's investigative findings include DOJ's and FBI's use of an unverified dossier of memoranda that was not subjected to proper U.S. government verification and was not handled according to FBI procedures," the letter says.
“The FBI’s own Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (known as the DIOG) prohibits the FBI from using unverified material to obtain a warrant under FISA.
"The unverified allegations in the dossier were nevertheless presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to obtain a FISA warrant and three renewals on Mr. Page. DOJ also presented a news article that was sourced from the author of the dossier.”
Let’s see if the president will follow suit and declassify documents that could only help his case.
Then again, the DOJ is likely to scream “sources and methods!” and claim that the lives of countless intelligence officials will be forever compromised.
