President Trump said…
Meanwhile, the White House released the following statement…
Ironically, despite the fact that the Democrats have been calling for declassification and transparency, now the radical left is attacking the President for declassifying the Trump/Russia investigation! In fact, following the President’s declassification orders, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, attacked President Trump Thursday night as being “un-American” for authorizing Attorney General William Barr to declassify and release documents related to Obama administration and Deep State spying on Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Schiff went on to accuse President Trump of…
“weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies.”
However, how is creating transparency with the public and investigating corruption, weaponizing the intelligence agencies? In addition, declassification and investigations that were perpetrated against President Trump were exactly what was done by the Obama administration, as well as, the Deep State. Now, Attorney General Bill Barr is doing exactly the same, only using the normal and legitimate channels, rather than getting FISA warrants, spying on political enemies, or sicking a right-wing special counsel on them!
Schiff went on to state…
Meanwhile, as the story broke, Fox News revealed how this is HUGE, as the Deep State is now panicking! In fact, this scandal appears to be even bigger than anyone believed before! In fact, Investigative reporter Sara Carter revealed that ‘EXPLOSIVE’ UNMASKING REVELATIONS are about to break, as Barack Obama’s former UN Ambassador is about to be exposed as personally unmasking more than 300 innocent Americans during the final days of the Obama Administration. Other reports indicate that high-level Obama officials, who were also at the highest levels within his Administration were participating in illegal acts against American citizens privacy, in violation of the Constitution of the United States!
