President Trump Tweet-Storm: Reauthorizes Declassification of all Documents – Will This Time Make A Difference?…

President Donald Trump has transmitted an epic tweet-storm seemingly targeted toward all officials within the executive branch; and the intelligence apparatus writ large:



One important note of caution: there is a big difference between “authorized” and “ordered”.  On May 23rd, 2019, President Trump authorized AG Bill Barr to declassify all documents and despite much optimism nothing happened {Go DEEP}.  However, President Trump references that lack of inaction in the next series of tweets:


The Russia investigation is being declassified.

Trump promises more ‘breathtaking’ documents about Russia probe are coming

President Trump promised that more “breathtaking” documents pointing to the involvement of the Obama administration and the Hillary Clinton campaign in the Russia investigation will be coming soon.

“Documents are being released at a level now that nobody’s ever seen before, Things that nobody thought were going to get released have been released and you’re seeing it all the time. You see what’s going on. We caught them cold, we have them cold,” Trump told host Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”

“And now they have to do something about it, but other documents are going to be released, Maria, which are breathtaking. Wait until you see what’s coming out,” the president said.

Bartiromo asked if the new documents would be about the FBI’s role or Clinton’s.

They need to be released.

Another redacted document included an investigative referral from the CIA to the FBI said Clinton’s alleged plan was intended as a “means of distracting the public from her use of a private mail server.”

The Clinton camp shrugged off the accusations as Russian disinformation.

Ratcliffe also plans to release more documents about the investigation.

“It’s probably about a foot-tall binder. Hundreds and hundreds of pages,” a source told The Post. “It’s made available to DOJ immediately.”

Allow me to state the obvious -- waiting until now to declassify docs that the Repubs knew contained this information months ago is political gamesmanship all along. Just like Dunham's report, which has been complete for some time now -- but as the Repubs want to avoid a backlash just prior to the election, they're confident that the declassification of the docs will do the same thing as Dunham's report will.
