WH fights declassification of Mueller documents

njbr

What a putz...

Trump recently wanted the declassification of all Mueller probe documents...

...“I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax,” the president tweeted Oct. 6. “Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!”....

....Associate Deputy Attorney General Bradley Weinsheimer maintained in a court filing Tuesday that the White House Counsel’s Office informed the Justice Department that notwithstanding the president’s statement, “there is no order requiring wholesale declassification or disclosure of documents at issue.”....

The White House wants it both ways. Good for the judge. He's handling it right. Tweets are not government directives but Trump was very clear as to his intent on twitter.

Biden should declassify everything when he becomes President. The redacted portions of the Senate Intelligence Report are telling. They provide a direct link between members of the Trump family and Russian oligarchs who were hand-picked by Putin to carry out operations.
