President Donald Trump has ordered that the information and underlying evidence that led to the Russia investigation be declassified in a move that could alter the political landscape surrounding Democrats’ moves to potentially impeach him.

In a statement late on Thursday, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders wrote:

Today, 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. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information. Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.

In a two-page memo, Trump instructed the intelligence community to cooperate with Attorney General William Barr:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby direct the following:

Section 1. Agency Cooperation. The Attorney General is currently conducting a review of intelligence activities relating to the campaigns in the 2016 Presidential election and certain related matters. The heads of elements of the intelligence community, as defined in 50 U.S.C. 3003(4), and the heads of each department or agency that includes an element of the intelligence community shall promptly provide such assistance and information as the Attorney General may request in connection with that review.

Sec. 2. Declassification and Downgrading. With respect to any matter classified under Executive Order 13526 of December 29, 2009 (Classified National Security Information), the Attorney General may, by applying the standard set forth in either section 3.1(a) or section 3.1(d) of Executive Order 13526, declassify, downgrade, or direct the declassification or downgrading of information or intelligence that relates to the Attorney General’s review referred to in section 1 of this memorandum. Before exercising this authority, the Attorney General should, to the extent he deems it practicable, consult with the head of the originating intelligence community element or department. This authority is not delegable and applies notwithstanding any other authorization or limitation set forth in Executive Order 13526.

Sec. 3. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this memorandum shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This memorandum shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) The authority in this memorandum shall terminate upon a vacancy in the office of Attorney General, unless expressly extended by the President.

(d) This memorandum is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

(e) The Attorney General is authorized and directed to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register.

Allies of the president have urged him to declassify the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that the FBI used when they first started to surveil the Trump campaign.

The FBI used a Democrat-funded dossier on then-candidate Trump to obtain the FISA warrant, despite the fact that reporting from earlier this month found that “a high-ranking government official who met with Steele in October 2016 determined some of the Donald Trump dirt that Steele was simultaneously digging up for the FBI and for Hillary Clinton’s campaign was inaccurate, and likely leaked to the media.”

    This is great. Should have been released right away. Damn be Jeff Sessions because of this worthless milk toast Trump and us his supporters had to go through hell for these last 2 years because of the criminality of the Democrats. Barr needs to uncover all of their deceit and than start jailing these rats. Throw their butt into Gitmo because they are traitors of our country. Starting with Obama and Hillary and than all the creeps of the Obama administration. Cant wait to see them all in their stripped suits.

    Another nail in the Democratic coffin. This is just going to show future proof that the whole Muller investigation was an attempted coup d’etat by butt-hurt Democrats who could not accept that they had lost the 2016 election. The media will–of course–ignore it.

      They won’t be able to ignore it when half the Democrats, including Obama and the Clintons are implicated and prosecuted, and I can’t wait!

    The problem is that no matter what is proven with the release of facts…. the narrative is always controlled by the Democrats bc the Republicans are spineless.

    I firmly believe in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 11, which states: “Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defense.”.

    Innocent until proven guilty. I hope President Trump fully prosecute any and all of those found guilty of wrongdoings. This is long overdue, and opening this up may just be what we need to restore the faith of the American people in our government. Open the books, let the American people decide.

    I also have to wonder how many Democrats are hiding under their desks just about now.

    Finally, the day has come. Watch some of them disappear. And the next thing we will hear is they have been spotted in some foreign country, that does not have an extradition agreement with the US. I bet some of them have been stashing money away in an overseas account since Mueller started the investigation, knowing he wasn’t going to find anything.

      In reference to all these democrap a__holes fleeing our country, has anyone seen Obama Bin Laden lately? No, because the P.O.S. has been travelling abroad with his family! He hasn’t been on U.S. soil in months. Hmmm…..I wonder why?
