President Trump claimed Thursday and Friday that foreign allies have asked him not to declassify documents from the Russia probe.
Hmmm? How do foreign countries know what’s in secret US FISA applications? Could it be that they were the ones who colluded with Hillary and the Deep State to frame Donald Trump?
Look at what President Trump said at the 2:57 Wow. I think Obama’s Intel agency is about to get thrown to the wolves.
“We are moving along, we are also dealing with foreign countries that do have a problem,” Trump said in an interview with Fox’s Sean Hannity. “I got called today from two very good allies saying, ‘Please, can we talk.’ It is not as simple as all of that. We do have to respect their wishes. But it will all come out.”
Hannity had asked Trump about his Monday order to declassify and release a trove of documents related to the FBI’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
Trump backtracked on his decision Friday, citing concerns from the Department of Justice as well as unnamed foreign allies.
Trump said on Twitter that the Justice Department “agreed to release them but stated that so doing may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe.”
“Also, key Allies’ called to ask not to release,” he added.
Trump said that the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General has been instructed to investigate the matter “on an expedited basis.”
“In the end I can always declassify if it proves necessary,” he said. “Speed is very important to me – and everyone!”
Trump’s comments raise the question of what concerns U.S. allies expressed over the release of the documents and why they would be concerned.
Trump’s order called for the declassification of 21 pages from a June 2017 application for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. More
Sounds like President Trump is now holding declassification over the heads of his enemies. Trump probably better than any other president in history knows how to use leverage! But still I’m disappointed… I want to see the information.
