Trump Declassifies ALL Russia Collusion Hoax & Hillary Clinton Email Probe Docs
President OKs docs of the 'single greatest political CRIME in American History'
President Donald Trump has “fully authorized the total declassification of any & all documents" relating to the 'phony' Russia investigation along with the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton's emails.
Trump tweeted Tuesday night:
“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!”
"All Russia Hoax Scandal information was Declassified by me long ago," Trump tweeted.
"Unfortunately for our Country, people have acted very slowly, especially since it is perhaps the biggest political crime in the history of our Country."

Last year, Attorney General Bill Barr was given authority to declassify documents related to surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016.
The president later ordered full cooperation from the intelligence community with Barr.
Republicans meanwhile criticized officials like FBI Director Christopher Wray and CIA Director Gina Haspel for blocking documents.
Neon Nettle reported last week that Haspel was blocking the release and declassification of crucial documents relating to the FBI's 2016 surveillance of the Trump campaign.
The Federalist's Sean Davis said:
“And I’m told that it is Gina Haspel personally who’s blocking continued declassification of these documents that will show the American people the truth of what actually happened," Davis said.
Trump's tweets came after John Ratcliffe declassified documents revealing former CIA Director John Brennan, former President Obama, on Hillary Clinton’s plot to smear Trump to distract the public away from the server.
Ratcliffe declassified Brennan’s notes, which showed officials referred the issue to the FBI for potential investigative action.
"Today, at the direction of President Trump, I declassified additional documents relevant to ongoing Congressional oversight and investigative activities," Ratcliffe said in a statement to Fox News.
According to one source familiar with the documents, Brennan's handwritten notes where taken after Obama was briefed on the matter.
“We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [REDACTED],” Brennan notes read.
“CITE [summarizing] alleged approved by Hillary Clinton a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service,” Brennan’s notes read.
The notes state “on 28 of July."
Brennan writes in the margin "POTUS," but the section of the notes is redacted.
“Any evidence of collaboration between Trump campaign + Russia,” the notes read.
The remaining part of the notes is redacted, except in the margins, which reads: “JC,” “Denis,” and “Susan."
Although the notes don't reveal full names, "JC" however, could be referring to then-FBI Director James Comey
"Susan" could be referring to National Security Adviser Susan Rice.
And "Denis" could refer to then-Obama chief of staff Denis McDonough.
The news comes a week after Ratcliffe shared newly-declassified information with the Senate Judiciary Committee revealing U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral on Hillary Clinton purportedly approving “a plan concerning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections."
The referral was sent to Comey and then-Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok.
The CIA memo to Comey and Strzok stated:
“The following information is provided for the exclusive use of your bureau for background investigative action or lead purposes as appropriate."
"This memorandum contains sensitive information that could be source revealing. It should be handled with particular attention to compartmentation and need-to-know."
"To avoid the possible compromise of the source, any investigative action taken in response to the information below should be coordinated in advance with Chief Counterintelligence Mission Center, Legal,” the memo, which was sent to Comey and Strzok, read.
"It may not be used in any legal proceeding—including FISA applications—without prior approval…”
“Per FBI verbal request, CIA provides the below examples of information the CROSSFIRE HURRICANE fusion cell has gleaned to date," the memo continued.
“An exchange [REDACTED] discussing US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning US presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering US elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”
The memo is densely redacted.
Ratcliffe last week told the committee that Obama obtained Russian intelligence in July 2016 with allegations against Clinton.
But he cautioned that the intelligence community “does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the text to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.”
The intelligence included the “alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016, of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services," according to Ratcliffe’s letter.
A source familiar with the documents told Fox News:
"This is not Russian disinformation. Even Brennan knew, or he wouldn't be briefing the president of the United States on it," the source said.
"There is a high threshold to orally brief the president of the United States, and he clearly felt this met that threshold.”
Another source said that "this information has been sought by hundreds of congressional requests for legitimate oversight purposes and was withheld for political spite—and the belief that they’d never get caught.”
Brennan notes are significant because it is “their own words, written and memorialized in real-time," the source added.
