Trump Acts on Nunes’ Call for Declassification, ‘No Redactions!’
Oct. 6, 2020 (EIRNS)—FLASH: President Donald Trump tweeted, after 8 p.m. this evening: “I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!”
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on Monday that President Donald Trump, while still in the hospital, pushed ahead on the declassification of the material singled out by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee. This includes the classified documents behind DNI John Ratcliffe’s memo on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 effort to tie Trump’s campaign to an alleged “Russian hacking” of the DNC. Another set of classified documents are those related to the creation of the infamous Steele dossier, and Steele’s operative, Igor Danchenko. Meadows spoke on Monday’s “Fox & Friends,” saying “This morning we’ve already had a couple of discussions on items that he wants to get done. Candidly, he’s already tasked me with getting declassification rolling in a follow-up to some of the requests that Devin Nunes and others have made.”
Support for Nunes’ demand for declassification was expressed last evening on a TV interview by Julie Kelly, author of Disloyal Opposition: How the NeverTrump Right Tried―And Failed―To Take Down the President. Speaking on One America News (OAN), she observed that Mark Meadows is moving on Nunes’ requests, and she reviewed how General Flynn was wrongfully targetted. She singled out functionaries for Trump to get rid of, after he gets re-elected, like the CIA’s Gina Haspel, and Dan Coats and others who are “loyal to the bi-partisan beltway,” and should be thrown out of office.
