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.

Fournette questionable for game against Patriots
Earlier in the week, coach Doug Marrone said he'd be comfortable playing Fournette even if the running back didn't practice. Whoever goes against him, I'm very confident they'll hold it down and I'll do my job and I'll hold it down where I'm at.

Lawmakers call on President Trump to declassify previously redacted sections of FISA applications; Carter Page shares his perspective on the Russian Federation investigation on 'Justice with Judge Jeanine'. Democrats weeks later released their own memo.

Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, sharply criticized Trump. The warrants released to the public were previously heavily redacted.

The American firebrand also told the DOJ to release reports about its interview with official Bruce Ohr.

"With the walls clearly closing in on him, President Trump is lashing out with this extraordinarily reckless and irresponsible release of classified information in a desperate attempt to distract from the seven guilty pleas and the mounting evidence of multiple criminal enterprises among his closest advisors", they said.
