Trump Orders Declassification of Carter Page FBI Documents

Bennie Garza | 18 September, 2018, 14:17

Citing transparency and the requests of "a number" of congressional committees, Mr. Trump directed the Director of National Intelligence, the Justice Department and the FBI to declassify pages from the June 2017 FISA application to surveil Page, a former foreign policy adviser to Mr. Trump, as part of the government's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

With Donald Trump's decision on Monday to release texts from former FBI Director James Comes and 20 portions of a surveillance application on former campaign adviser Carter Page, Dan Metcalfe, there former co-director of Justice's Office of Information and Privacy, warns the president may be putting himself in legal jeopardy.

He also asked for the release of unredacted versions of all text messages about the probe sent and received by multiple officials, including former FBI Director James Comey and deputy director Andrew McCabe, the White House said in a statement.

Ohr is accused of having improper communications with Christopher Steele, the former British spy who provided the FBI the unverified Trump dossier before he was terminated as a source for leaking word of the investigation to the press.

"This has been a long time in coming", Jesse Watters said, adding that people have been asking for the release of these documents for a year or more.

Ohr was also one of the senior officials whose text messages were ordered released by Trump on Monday. The president also ordered the release of notes on meetings with Ohr, who relayed information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation collected by former British spy Christopher Steele about Trump's relationship with Russian Federation.

Democrats say that Trump and his allies are politicising a law enforcement investigation in order to protect the White House.

However, Juan Williams cautioned that Trump's decision to declassify the documents could be proof of a "flailing president" who is concerned about the current political scene. Democrats weeks later released their own memo.

Donald Trump has ordered the release of classified documents as part of his effort to discredit the inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election and potential links with his campaign team.
