Trump Orders Declassification of FISA Docs, Release of Russia Probe Texts From Strzok, Page, and Others
The White House announced in a statement early tonight that President Donald Trump is ordering the declassification of documents following requests from members of Congress.
The statement from Sarah Sanders confirms that Trump is ordering the declassification of the Carter Page FISA application, FBI reports of all Bruce Ohr interviews “prepared in connection with the Russia investigation,” and all FBI reports of interviews prepped “in connection with all Carter Page FISA applications.”
And on top of that, he’s also ordering the release of all text messages related to the Russia probe “without redaction,” citing not just Peter Strzok and Lisa Page but also Ohr, Andrew McCabe, and James Comey.
