Documents related to the Russian investigation currently classified will be released to the public as soon as Friday after President Trump ordered their release yesterday, reports say.
Trump ordered the release without redaction, a move that left his liberal detractors stunned and furious.
The decision has created a firestorm in Washington, the swamp is in total meltdown.
Perhaps most interesting will be text messages from former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI official Peter Strzok, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page and top DOJ official Bruce Ohr.
According to Fox News:
“Intelligence agencies and the FBI have begun the process of declassifying key documents in the bureau’s Russia investigation –and the first items could be made public as soon as Friday, federal law enforcement officials told Fox News Tuesday.
On Monday, President Trump ordered the release of 21 pages of a renewed surveillance warrant application against former campaign aide Carter Page and all FBI reports on agent interviews (known as “302s”) with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr.
The officials told Fox News that the declassification process for those documents has already begun. They said that the FBI and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence were working together on the project, with the possible involvement of other agencies. Eventually, the officials said, the declassified product would be passed to the White House.
However, the officials said it would likely take considerably longer to make public the other two sets of documents covered by Trump’s declassification order: all 302s in connection with warrant applications to surveil Page and text messages from five current and former FBI and Justice Department officials involved in the Russia investigation.”
