Finally, President Trump grants Attorney General Barr full authorization to release all documents related to the FBI’s surveillance of his campaign in 2016. A decision that has got all Republicans around the country cheering president Trump.
In a series of tweets, president Trump said;
“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.” Trump added.
Included in the memo sent out by president Trump, he ordered all the elements of the intelligence community to promptly provide all assistance and information that may be requested by Attorney General Barr in connection to that review.

This decision is presumed to have caused a lot of landslide within the Democratic party and the American people will finally get a glimpse of the truth of the FBI’s FISA Court application (and the three subsequent renewals) for the warrant to spy on Trump advisor Carter Page. This will indicate whether the bogus Steele dossier was used as the primary basis for obtaining the warrant, as it is believed. The heavily redacted state of the documents released last year left Republican investigators with many questions.
And lastly this will become the beginning of a fight back for President Trump.
