President Trump spoke to Fox News host Sean Hannity Thursday evening about the ongoing Spygate scandal.
Sean Hannity asked President Trump if he will declassify the Carter Page FISA docs and other pertinent Russia records related to Spygate.
The President promptly responded, “Yes.”
“Yes. Everything is gonna be declassified and more — much more than what you just mentioned — it will all be declassified,” Trump said, adding, “And I’m glad I waited because I thought that maybe they would obstruct if I did it early and I think I was right, so I’m glad I waited and now the Attorney General can take a very strong look at whatever it is.
Trump continued, “It will be declassified and more than what you just mentioned.”
According to investigative reporter James Rosen, President Trump is planning on declassifying the documents around the same time Inspector General Michael Horowitz releases his report on FISA abuses.
Horowitz is reportedly drafting his final report which is due to be made public within about six weeks.
In September of 2018, President Trump issued an immediate declassification order of Carter Page FISA docs and all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr.
A few days later, President Trump walked back his promise to declassify the docs.
According to ranking member of the House Intel Committee Devin Nunes there is exculpatory evidence in the 20 redacted pages of the Carter Page FISA docs.
The first FISA warrant was issued on Carter Page in October of 2016, just weeks before election day.
Obama’s corrupt FBI and DOJ obtained a FISA warrant and THREE subsequent renewals on Carter Page.
It is also important to note that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe signed the June 2017 FISA renewal –one month after Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Trump-Russia collusion.
Trump hinted last Friday that a storm is coming when he tweeted, “It is now finally time to turn the tables and bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people who have committed very serious crimes, perhaps even Spying or Treason. This should never happen again!
Trump’s timing is impeccable — he waited patiently until he had a real Attorney General to declassify the FISA docs.
Trump is right. If he declassified the docs while Rosenstein and Mueller were in charge of the Justice Department, they would have obstructed at every turn.
