Former President Trump may finally be vindicated by the investigation of special counsel John Duram. Trump wants all DOJ information on the Russian probe declassified to prove the media frenzy around Russiagate was manufactured.
“They have the declassification order,” Trump said of the Justice Department. “And they should declassify, absolutely, especially in light of what has just happened and what has just been revealed.”
“Trump, in May 2019, following the completion of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, told then-Attorney General Bill Barr to begin a declassification process of records related to surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016,” Fox News reports.
“Mueller’s investigation yielded no evidence of criminal conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 presidential election.”
“We did declassify, and people saw them, and I think you’ll see some big stuff,” Trump told Fox News.
There is “tremendous dishonesty and corruption,” Trump says.
“They should release them.”
A White House statement on Trump’s declassification order in 2019 said that, “at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election.”
