The Mueller Russia probe just drags on and on and on. It looks to me as though Mueller feels that he can do pretty much whatever he wants, no matter how outrageous it is. He doesn’t seem to think there will be any consequences for his actions because everything is hidden from the public. Looks like he was wrong.
Earlier this week, President Trump took the historic step of ordering that the records surrounding the Russia investigation be declassified. That also includes the FISA warrant. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders cited “reasons of transparency” for the president’s landmark decision, as well as requests from Congressional investigative committees in a statement confirming the action.
Oh, to be a fly on the wall of Democrats when that happened. I could just feel their heads explode all the way over here. The swamp slugs are now scrambling to cover their behinds as their actions are about to be made very, very public. Trump’s blow to Mueller’s investigation could be its death knell.
Trump ordered the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to declassify select parts of the FISA court application that was used to spy on his former campaign surrogate Carter Page during the 2016 election. Also to be released are the FBI interviews with Bruce Ohr showing his and his wife’s involvement in the Russia dossier scandal.
But there’s more! All text messages relating to the Russia investigation from former FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are set to be released as well. We will finally get to see in context their subversive activities plotted and planned against President Trump.
There is going to be tons of unclassified information that will be uncovered. I have no doubt at all that this could throw the entire Russian investigation into utter chaos, especially when the true intentions of these corruptocrats is unveiled. Do you want to see real collusion? This is it.
From Fox News:
“The 21 pages only make up a small part of the 412 pages of FISA applications and warrants related to Page released by the FBI earlier this year in heavily redacted format. The June 2017 application was the last of four filed by the Justice Department in support of FISA court orders allowing the monitoring of Page for nearly a year.
“According to the redacted version, three of the declassified pages involve information included in a section titled “The Russian Government’s Coordinated Efforts to Influence the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.” That section includes reference to potential coordination between people associated with Trump’s campaign and the Russian election interference effort.
“The other 18 pages appear to relate to information the government submitted that came from former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled a dossier detailing the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia. The document has been a partisan lightning rod since it was published in January 2017.
“Carter Page told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday night that the FBI’s investigation was “so incredibly stupid to begin with.” He added, “My biggest concern is all the damage that this did to the U.S. government [and] the mockery it made out of the Constitution and all of the wrongdoing that was done by various officials within the Department of Justice, the FBI and the DNC [Democratic National Committee].”
“It was not immediately clear when or how the documents would be released. A source familiar with the timing of the declassification told Fox News that they expected the Carter Page warrant application to be declassified first, followed by the FBI reports on agent interviews with Ohr.
“The source added that the Justice Department is working on a “compressed timeline” and they expect the first release of records in days or sooner. The text messages are expected to take longer because of the sheer number involved and the fact that Trump ordered their release without redactions.”
Immediately after Comey’s firing Peter Strzok texted to his lover, Lisa Page “We need to Open the case we’ve been waiting on now while Andy (McCabe, also fired) is acting. Page answered, “We need to lock in (redacted). In a formal chargeable way. Soon.” Wow, a conspiracy caught?

President Trump commented on the ongoing investigation on Twitter, citing a Fox News report about Lisa Page’s testimony that there was no evidence of collusion before the Mueller appointment. “The case should never have been allowed to be brought,” Trump added. “It is a totally illegal Witch Hunt!”
Looks like Trump was right all along. Trump also pointed to a message from Strzok to Page, proposing to “lock in” an investigation right after Comey was fired from the FBI.
House Intelligence Committee ranking member Adam Schiff (D-CA) called Trump’s decision “a clear abuse of power.” But House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes didn’t see it that way, “Wow! This is a direct order.” Republicans, on the whole, praised President Trump for the move.
All of this needs the cleansing power of sunlight and transparency. President Trump was right to do this and Americans have a right to see what is going on in regards to Trump’s campaign and all this spying nonsense.
