Trump Vows to Release FISA Documents Now Mueller Investigation is Over
Since Mueller's reports, many Republicans are now asking why the inquiry began
President Donald Trump has declared his intentions to release the unredacted Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants which launched the 'Russia' investigation into his campaign.
The president told Fox News that before the report by Attorney General William Barr which revealed he didn't conspire with Russia, he was advised not to release the FISA warrants over fears it could be blamed for obstructing justice.
But Trump said that now the Mueller’s investigation is over, that is no longer the case.
“I do, I have plans to declassify and release. I have plans to absolutely release,” Trump said.
“A lot of people wanted me to do it a long time ago. I'm glad I didn't do it. We got a great result without having to do it, but we will.”
Since Mueller's reports, many Republicans are now asking why the inquiry began in the first place.
Republicans allege the Justice Department and FBI violated the FISA process to obtain warrants to spy on Trump associates as part of the Trump-Russia investigation,
“This was an attempted takeover of our government, of our country, an illegal takeover,” Trump said Wednesday.
Trump called the investigation as the "insurance policy" set up by biased individuals within the Justice Department against him.
"They wanted to do a subversion. It was treason. It was really treason," he said.
The Fake News Media has lost tremendous credibility with its corrupt coverage of the illegal Democrat Witch Hunt of your all time favorite duly elected President, me! T.V. ratings of CNN & MSNBC tanked last night after seeing the Mueller Report statement. @FoxNews up BIG!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 27, 2019
According to the Washington Examiner: Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said during a Monday news conference that there would be continued investigations into the origins of Mueller’s investigation, including the FISA warrants.
“When it comes to the warrant, the Clinton campaign, the counterintelligence investigation, it's pretty much been swept under the rug except by a few Republicans in the House. Those days are over. Going forward, hopefully in a bipartisan fashion, we’ll begin to unpack the other side of the story,” Graham said.
Barr announced Sunday in a four-page report that Mueller did not find evidence of Trump colluding with Russia.
Also, neither he nor Mueller made a judgment as to whether or not Trump obstructed justice during the 22-month inquiry.
Neon nettle reported the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) vowed to launch an investigation into Obama's Justice Department and FBI for potential FISA warrant abuse.
During a press conference on Monday, Senator Graham called for a special counsel to investigate these potential abuses of power to manipulate the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) process to spy on the Trump campaign.
Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley has joined Sen. Graham's calls, saying he fully supports the appointment of a special counsel.
"Several weeks ago, I asked the FBI for answers on its counterintelligence probe of @realDonaldTrump. I haven’t gotten any answers. So for starters, I will wholeheartedly support @LindseyGrahamSC call for special counsel and believe it should include FBI," Sen. Hawley tweeted.
