Statement from the Press Secretary – September 17, 2018 – The White House

President Trump on Declassified Memo.

It’s a Disgrace what is happening in this Country……

 

 

 

It is finally happening.  At the request of a number of committees of Congress……The President has requested: 

At the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency, the President has directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to provide for the immediate declassification of the following materials: (1) pages 10-12 and 17-34 of the June 2017 application to the FISA court in the matter of Carter W. Page; (2) all FBI reports of interviews with Bruce G. Ohr prepared in connection with the Russia investigation; and (3) all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all Carter Page FISA applications.

In addition, President Donald J. Trump has directed the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to publicly release all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr.

Rep. Peter King says that Sen. Pelosi is entirely wrong about disclosing sources and methods.  The FISA court has been used to spy on a Candidate and on the President of the United States.  

If there was any collusion it was the FBI and Fusion GPS.  There was an attempt to bring down President Trump before his campaign and afterwards.  There is contradiction and it goes against the spirit of the sacred FISA Court.  The left did not lay everything out for the FISA court and important facts were not disclosed to the FISA Court.  It is a total distortion of the FISA Court.

 

President Trump said that it is a disgrace on what is happening in this Country.  

The discredited Russia dossier was key to FBI’s FISA warrant to surveil members of the Trump Team.

 

The Trump Dossier made spying on Carter Page possible.  Because Andrew McCabe said so under oath.  The FBI knew at the time that it was unreliable and only Minimally corroborated.  The left hid the facts from the FISA Court and presented the dossier and true facts.  

James Comey took to twitter to mock the release of the memo.  He said that it was Dishonest and Misleading.  Incredible! Comey who leaked his notes on private meetings with the President and who also believes that the FBI is a fourth co-equal branch of government, not subject to the authority of the other three!  Christopher Wray argued that the names of the FBI officials in the memo ought to be redacted.  That will only protect the FBI and not the people.  They are pretending that Carter Paige somehow hurt this country.  They know that is a lie.  They wanted to use him to destroy a president they hate.  TUCKER SAID: the real lesson is: we must trust law enforcement.  We allow them to operate in secrecy because they tell us they must. WE only ask them to operate with integrity.
