As Democrats lobbed political attacks at President Donald Trump for trying to get to the bottom of how disproved allegations his campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 election originated, the president said Friday his order to declassify documents is designed to get to the truth.
“[W]e want to be very transparent. So, as you know, I declassified everything. Everything they want. I put it under the auspices of the attorney general. He’s going to be in charge of it. He’s a great gentleman and a highly respected man,” Trump said Friday during a question-and-answer session with the media outside the White House before leaving for Japan, according to a White House media pool report.
“We’re exposing everything,” Trump said. “We’re being a word that you like: ‘transparent.’ We’re being — ultimately, we’re being transparent, and that’s what it’s about.”
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, used different words, labeling Trump’s order to declassify documents relating to the intelligence community’s actions in 2016 a “corrupt escalation of the president’s intention” to politicize the intelligence community.
…..The Dems want a second shot at Bob Mueller, are very unhappy with the No Collusion Report. They should not be allowed to play this game any longer – no second chances – must get back to work. So bad for our Country!
