Speaking at an event hosted by the Center for Security Policy on Thursday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said that Democrats and the media are likely to be “frightened” by the information contained in Trump-Russia documents that Republicans are asking President Trump to declassify.
He also added Trump is close to declassifying portions of a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant granted against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
The Daily Caller reported: “The unredacted portions showed that the FBI relied heavily on the infamous Steele dossier to obtain the warrants. Republicans have accused the FBI of abusing the FISA process by citing the dossier even though it was unverified and financed by Democrats as part of an opposition research project.
Before that release, Nunes and other Republicans on the House Intelligence panel sent a letter to Trump calling on him to declassify and release 21 pages of the fourth and final FISA warrant.
“In the course of the Committee’s investigation, we have uncovered irregularities with the process by which DOJ and FBI obtained information and sought and renewed three times a warrant pursuant to FISA on U.S citizen Carter Page,” the letter reads.
Nunes, a close ally of Trump’s, noted that Democrats and media pundits claimed after the initial release of the FISAs that “the really bad stuff about the Trump campaign was buried in the redactions.”
“And I said, you know what, you might be right. We should declassify the whole thing,” Nunes said Thursday.
Nunes asserted that Trump’s critics have backed away from that argument out of fear that the rest of the FISA application will be damaging to the FBI and the narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.
“And you know why? Because I think they’re going to be frightened by what you see,” Nunes said of Democrats and the press.
Nunes’ comments echo remarks he made in an interview on Fox News on July 29.
“We are quite confident that once the American people see these 20 pages, at least for those that will get real reporting on this issue, they will be shocked by what’s in that FISA application,” Nunes told Fox’s Maria Bartiromo.”
I personally doubt they will be frightened… even though they should be.
Nunes’ tick-tocks have been 100% correct so far. I appreciate him for continuing to uncover the truth even with all that fight against him.
So, declassify all documents! The American people needs to see them. We are growing weary. If the Democrats take control of Congress, it is over for America. Remember that the treasonous deep state wants President Trump gone, and they do not care how it is done.
Sadly, it won’t matter to Democrats. They believe they can do anything they want. The Democrats and the liberal media rely on the massive stupidity of their supporters. So, they will simply call it a nothing burger (or just ignore it) and the liberal airheads will go right along with it.
