President Trump has ordered the declassification of documents related to the questionable FISA warrants on how the FBI got authorization to surveil Trump aide Carter Page. The howls from both the Democrats and the national security community can now be heard from orbit. It just goes to show how badly it needed to be done.
According to Fox News:
President Trump on Monday ordered the declassification of several key documents related to the FBI investigation of Russian actions during the 2016 presidential election, including 21 pages of an application for a renewed surveillance warrant against former campaign aide Carter Page, and text messages from disgraced FBI figures Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Following that, we got reportage like this:
Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Trump’s “selective release of materials he believes are helpful to his defense team and thinks will advance a false narrative” is a “clear abuse of power,” and based on his conversations with federal law enforcement officials, the FBI and Justice Department see the release of these unredacted documents as “a red line that must not be crossed as they may compromise sources and methods.”
