In one of the final moves before President Trump departed office, he declassified the documents related to Crossfire Hurricane.

According to Town Hall:

Just hours before leaving the White House, President Donald Trump declassified documents related to Operation Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI’s investigation into Trump campaign officials during the 2016 election and well after the Trump administration took hold in January 2017. The announcement was made in a memo sent to the Attorney General, CIA director and Director of National Intelligence.

“At my request, on December 30, 2020, the Department of Justice provided the White House with a binder of materials related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Portions of the documents in the binder have remained classified and have not been released to the Congress or the public. I requested the documents so that a declassification review could be performed and so I could determine to what extent materials in the binder should be released in unclassified form,” Trump wrote. “I determined that the materials in that binder should be declassified to the maximum extent possible. In response, and as part of the iterative process of the declassification review, under a cover letter dated January 17, 2021, the Federal Bureau of Investigation noted its continuing objection to any further declassification of the materials in the binder and also, on the basis of a review that included Intelligence Community equities, identified the passages that it believed it was most crucial to keep from public disclosure. I have determined to accept the redactions proposed for continued classification by the FBI in that January 17 submission.”

According to the memo, the content of some documents will remain secret. The documents will become available to the public at a later date and after the FBI completes redactions.

“I hereby declassify the remaining materials in the binder. This is my final determination under the declassification review and I have directed the Attorney General to implement the redactions proposed in the FBI’s January 17 submission and return to the White House an appropriately redacted copy,” Trump wrote. “My decision to declassify materials within the binder is subject to the limits identified above and does not extend to materials that must be protected from disclosure pursuant to orders of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and does not require the disclosure of certain personally identifiable information or any other materials that must be protected from disclosure under applicable law. Accordingly, at my direction, the Attorney General has conducted an appropriate review to ensure that materials provided in the binder may be disclosed by the White House in accordance with applicable law.”

Lindsay Graham has also released many of the documents related to the Senate Judiciary’s investigation into Crossfire Hurricane.

Biden is signing blank law documents and having his anti semitic and racist staff write the laws. I have photos of this on the web and message program. you can see on my computer.

The Jewish community has overwhelmingly supported Democrats for decades. Obviously, they support liberalism, the pure hatred for the Jewish state and hopes for Iran to eliminate it.

I have little empathy to offer if they are now offended at anti semitic rants when the vast majority of Jews are doing the rants..

I saw what were supposed to be Executive Orders being signed by Biden but it was only blank sheets of white paper. What gives? Fake, like him?

I imagine the establishment swamp will cover-up the most damaging parts since there’s no loyalists to guard it.

Easy answer. Biden has no answer to your questions. He will just tell you how wonderful the new green deal is and we’re going to build back better.

President Trump should have declassified so very much more than he did. The LIES by our government goes back for a very long time and most Americans know that the government’s LIARS in the HABITUAL LYING CORPORATE PRESS are merely working to brain wash the American people that good is bad and that bad is good. Turn them OFF!

Holding my breath until the declassified Crossfire Hurricane docs are released – not.
Does anyone remember the name John Durham? Think we will see his report before 2500 AD?
Will this country survive for the next four years? Think we all better start learning Mandarin.
