White House Answers House Request on Declassification [ VIDEO]
By 1600 Staff
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to Congress’ request to declassify the redacted portions of the Carter Page FISA application.
So we now find out that it was indeed the unverified and Fake Dirty Dossier, that was paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNC, that was knowingly & falsely submitted to FISA and which was responsible for starting the totally conflicted and discredited Mueller Witch Hunt!
President Trump will not immediately grant House Republicans’ request to declassify and publicize currently redacted sections of the recently released FISA application used by the FBI to justify the surveillance of an ex-Trump aide, the White House said Monday.
Republicans on the House intelligence committee asked Trump last month to declassify portions of the surveillance warrant application for Page, according to a letter obtained by Fox News. The heavily redacted application outlining the justifications for surveiling Page, which was approved and renewed several times by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), was released over the weekend after a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

“The president has purposefully remained uninvolved in this process,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday. “He has said repeatedly that he wants the Department of Justice to be fully transparent with these requests from Congress, and he’s going to continue at this point to remain uninvolved. “However, he sees more and more every single day that this is proving further and further to be a total witch hunt, particularly because it was based on a false and unverified and discredited dossier,” she added.
For now, President Trump is steering clear of the report, so Congress and the Department of Justice can resolve their differences without the president’s direct involvement. The uncensored portions of the the application(s) confirm the findings of the Nunes Memo, which detailed the partisan origins of the Spygate scandal, going back to the 2016 candidacy of Hillary Clinton. The president can change his mind at any time, and as his political opposition makes wild claims about Russian collusion in 2016, could be revisited in the future.
