Trump orders more Russia-related probe documents to be declassified
18 September, 2018, 07:56
President Trump Monday ordered the declassification of several key documents related to the FBI's probe of Russian actions during the 2016 presidential election, including an application for a renewed surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, and text messages from disgraced Federal Bureau of Investigation figures Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
In an unprecedented move, President Trump has ordered the Justice Department and FBI to publicly release a handful of former top government officials' unredacted texts about the Russian Federation investigation. They believe that the FISA court incorrectly allowed the surveillance on the basis of the material in the dossier.
A spokesman for the Department of Justice commented on Trump's order, saying: "When the President issues such an order, it triggers a declassification review process that is conducted by various agencies within the intelligence community, in conjunction with the White House Counsel, to seek to ensure the safety of America's national security interests".
"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". A USA official says the declassification process ordered by the president will be a "complicated" matter.
