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.

Fox News reports:

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.

Anyone that doesn’t believe Obama knows everything about the fake Russian dossier is just plain dumb! Obama was the puppet master, and Loretta Lynch and James Comey and everyone below them were his puppets. One text message between, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page even stated that the president (Obama) wants to know everything we are doing.
This was nothing short of election rigging by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, Loretta Lynch, James Comey, Hillary Clinton and others, these people need to be arrested and prosecuted:
Current FBI director Christopher Wray, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Huma Abedin, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Susan Rice, James Comey, Peter Strozk, Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein Robert Mueller (Uranium one) Eric Holder (Fast and Furious) and Barack Obama and many more belong in prison! Every one of them needs to be arrested and prosecuted for treason against the American people and the United States of America!
Because John Kerry (a civilian) is trying to usurp the power of the president he gets added!
Firing or allowing these criminals to step down and collect pensions paid for by the American people must stop and it must stop now! No one is above the law!
It is time to shut down the Mueller witch hunt! It has been well over a year and I keep hearing some idiots in congress say let him do his job! How long is that going to take! One more year, two years, five years, 10 years or a hundred years and what is the cost going to be? One million, two million, 5 million, 10 million, 100 million, a billion or more? Mueller doesn’t even know what his job is!!!!! This investigation wast started on hearsay and a lie and not only should it be shut down immediately it should never have been started!

You have said it well and any thinking American will agree with you, 100%. The Democrats obviously don’t care what they are doing to the American people…. all they care about is trying to bring down the President. In truth, these are the actions indicative of a third world country…. I am embarrassed before the world because of these childish actions. Are there any grown-ups in the Democratic party? —

Of course he does! This needs to be on every news station and they NEED to tell the truth about the Dossier! Until this happens, the liberals are so insane and brainwashed, they will never believe President Trump isn’t in collusion with Russia while Killary gets off again and BO as well! Clapper, Mueller, Comey and Brennan were all in this together, all to discredit our President, and to win the POTUS for Killary. I am sick of seeing the idiots on the left referring to Trump’s pal, Putin because the Deep State and the Marxist Media has protected Killary, BO and the Muslim Regime and still plan on taking over our country. President Trump is a genius, I have faith that he is waiting until just the right time to expose the corruption that has been the Democrappy Party since the Moderates were taken over by the Communist and Socialist. In the meantime, President Trump’s popularity keeps rising, and the candidate President Trump endorsed won in Missouri over Mitch McConnel’s candidate, and I have no doubt there will be a Red Wave in Nov.

I agree with everything Roger said. Mueller is as guilty as all the others mentioned and this farce of an investigation of Trumps involment with Russia should never been started. It’s all about getting Trump out of office anyway they can. Someone needs to shut Mueller down immediately and spend the saved money on the Wall.

Trump and Sessions have a plan, not to proceed with any prosecutions until they can close the noose on all the criminals of the deep state. With each passing day, further traitors are being uncovered that will provide further details and testimonies against the most wanted players in this plot. I was a major crime investigator for 24 years, I am well aware of the time a detail investigation takes, especially money trails leading back to The NWO and the World Bank.

These evil (if not Satanic) legislators, henchmen and investigators as a team are trying any and every thing to find a flaw to hurt our President. However, God has a way to turn every accusation around and expose another criminal act of that team.
. It seems the team assumes that every crime their members have perfected must be one that that Trump used somewhere… and they expose their own crimes.
. Now we have Mueller granting Immunity to his friends in Obama’s and Clinton’s Criminal Cabal in hopes that they can fabricate something that appears as evidence to hurt those who oppose the Cabal or favor President Trump.

Unless the President knows something the rest of the world doesn’t, it would have been in his best interests to declassify the FISA material. With the redaction, the material doesn’t reveal half of what should be known.

I am going to introduce another idea to this issue: Donald Trump and Vladimer Putin met for two, plus hours with only two translators present. No one to be questioned, or give any answers. And Our intelligence has reported since that a foreign power, (Not Russia) intercepted – hacked DNC, Podesta, Biden, and we know that Pakistan born, American citizen was IT for DNC, Democrats, and other with servers, cell phones, and other electronic equipment. John Brennan, immediately announced that Russians had assisted Donald Trump campaign, and the other Intelligence Facility senior leaders supported that, and have contended to say that after Inaugeration, and continue now. Claiming treason, and other misdeeds against our President, and his administration.
——- This reminds me of my youth, when neighboring farmers in Ohio all had coon hounds, to chase raccoons. But some of those hounds, when striking deer trail or sign, would take off and chase deer, and some did not come home for 2 or more days.
—– This was bad for the owners, and their dogs, and some have been known t shoot and bury young hounds that did this.
——-Now I am going to suggest (just maybe)?, that we have some intelligence trained dogs (?) here, who hit the trail, and no one has said yet, who that other foreign power is, but China has much more advanced and futuristic communications then USA or Russia has. And since Steele (British) no longer in U.K. Intelligence, may be working many sides of many countries, and Donald and Putin, want to flesh this issue (problem) out to find out who else is there, and masking themselves.
Could be very interesting in next 5 years or so, to see who, and how many of present, known players, meet with their maker (natural causes, you know?. I don’t think that Russia with 6,800 nuclear weapons, is afraid of USA with 6,600, while the other countries have total of 907 nuclear weapons as estimated in December 2017, reported in Newsweek. Cyberworld is the new battle ground, in space and on earth, and is more dangerous than the nuclear weapons, if they can touch off something between other countries. Just thinking, and I don’t trust any of about 40 plus, of USA Intelligence leaders of past administrations. And how many of present, rank and file, have they contaminated?

Isn’t it IRONIC that if this is really true. And to me it does. Then the whole process of the Mueller investigation was founded on lies and deceit. Therefore based on these lies and others the investigation should be shut down. Just like any court of law, if the evidence is not true then it should not be admitted . Therefore Case closed. However, those who perpetrated the false actions should be brought to justice. No matter who they are. A total investigation. Maybe put Mueller in charge of this one also.

Therefore EVERYTHING which came from the FISA court warrents were “fruit of the poisoned tree.” and legally inadmissable.

For permitting lying to the FISA court RosenStains security clearance should be pulled along with Mueller’s. Time to drain the swamp of lying security risks who lack Fidelity Bravery and INTEGRITY.

IM frustrated seeing these treasonness conspirators laughing in the face of justice. We have a few in Congress busting their humps to bring the truth to life bur keep getting stonewalled. Pres Trump YOU can bring the truth to life. The left is getting so desparate and violent that people are going to get hurt unless YOU step in and release the documents unredacted. Then if it proves Dirty Cop Rosenstein is stonewalling to protect himself and his deep state cronies FIRE HIM then fire Jeff Sessions because he is not stepping in to correct the situation.

I agree David, I was adamantly against BO and was furious that a Kenyan born, and not a natural born citizen was elected to POTUS. The Deep State SELECTED the Muslim/Communist/Kenyan to take over the U.S. and turn it into a Communist country. That’s why I refused to vote back Cruz or Rubio. I will not be like the Demoncraps and be hypocritical, it’s OK for us to do it, but if you do the very same thing, we have to harass you Conservatives day and night! I was a Dr. Ben Carson supporter. I knew the man for over 8 years, and he is tough, just as tough as President Trump but much more diplomatic. That being said, after what Stephen King and Cruz did in my state of Iowa, that literally ruined Dr. Carson’s chances, I was furious. I was a speaker for Dr. Carson at my precinct. Many people there I knew, and they were voting for Dr. Carson, after that announcement that he was dropping out, they voted Ted Cruz because they didn’t want their vote go to waste. I have never been a Cruz fan since, that was a real dirty trick on one of the most honest, caring, and the most intelligent man, a non politician, that ran for POTUS. HOWEVER, that being said, after Donald Trump supported Dr. Carson over Cruz and King’s dirty trick, I saw a different person than before. When Dr. Carson endorsed him, every one, and there were millions of us, who backed Dr. Carson got on the Trump Train, and we are not sorry. I love our President, and I am happy he put Dr. Carson as Hud Secretary, no one could possibly do that job better than Dr.Carson since he has been there, raised in the Ghetto by a 15 year old mother. Dr. Carson wouldn’t have taken any other position, he had been offered Surgeon General by Bush and BO and turned it down, if you knew this man, you would know his accolades go even farther than being the most renown neurosurgeon in the world, first to separate conjoined twins successfully with a team of Cardiologist, surgeons, surgical nurses, anesthesiologist and many more medical professionals hand picked by him to do the most intricate surgery and succeeded. Now I am backing our President, I am very proud of him, he doesn’t get rattled and continues to do what he has promised us, MAGA and he is so successful he is driving the crazed and insane left to mass suicide.

I am extremely frustrated that Trump has decided not to declassify the document release of the FISA warrants, so that they can be seen, totally unredacted, in their entirety by the American people. EVERYONE who loves this country should be able to see with their own eyes how our intelligency agencies, in collusion with the left and with the media, have conspired to clear Hillary from her crimes against the American people, keep Trump from being elected, and, once elected, continued their efforts to have him impeached. It’s a miracle that Trump has not been assassinated. Shame on President Trump for reneging on his promise to drain the swamp!

If I trusted the average American voter to use common sense I would love to see a convention of states to address some of the problems we now have. One thing I would like to see would be the death penalty for treason,a nd treason defined as any action that endangers the welfare of the USA as a free nation. I would like to see the congress stripped of the power to set their own salary, give themselves special retirement and health care perks, and any special treatment concerning the laws the rest of the citizens live by. But given the fickleness and lack of common sense of many voters today I fear that we would end up destroying the Constitution instead of strengthening it.

Why are the dems/rinos doing what they are doing? I think the reason is an attempt to cover up something? Like the fielding, the election then the support of an illegal candidate ? What would be the worst thing a political party could do? Elect a candidate that is illegal? This would make the party outlaws? Making them ineligible to hold offices?

Perhaps not unique in the world, but part of the law of the land the Constitution, there are qualifications for an office of the fed govt. Being a blood relative does not guarantee a person an office in the fed govt.. Holding an office illegally does not mean the person will be shot at dawn. But missing a qualification probably does not even include prison time. But surely there are political ramifications for this event. Like nothing the outlaw did is valid and their term in office will have to be stricken from the books, and the period of time the outlaw wasn’t legally in office will have no occupant. And things signed by this outlaw no longer law, etc., This is not an issue for me since I am not an office holder But all elected officials have laws that apply to them. Failure of them to do so is just as illegal for them as it is illegal to drive over the speed limit for all drivers. They are not above the law.

It turns out our president has been all talk about draining the swamp. After firing Comey, the Muellar investigation has intimidated him enough that he’s become afraid to allow the people who voted for him to see how crooked some of the people really are in his administration, because then he’d be forced to do something. I think overall he’s done a good job for the country, but the number one thing I was hoping for was for him to clean up Washington DC, but I’m afraid instead of cleaning it up, he’s just becoming another president that’s been swallowed up by the swamp.
