President Donald Trump on Tuesday authorized the declassification of all documents relating to the Russia collusion and Hillary Clinton email scandals.
I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions! https://t.co/GgnHh9GOiq— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2020
The president reminded Americans that he instructed intelligence agencies to declassify information awhile ago but "people have acted very slowly."
All Russia Hoax Scandal information was Declassified by me long ago. Unfortunately for our Country, people have acted very slowly, especially since it is perhaps the biggest political crime in the history of our Country. Act!!!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2020
The news comes after documents were declassified earlier in the day. The newly declassified documents showed CIA Director John Brennan's handwritten notes about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's plans to frame then-candidate Donald Trump.
Clinton planned to push the Russia collusion narrative to distract from her email scandal, documents from Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe revealed.
As part of her scheme to frame Trump, the Clinton campaign hired British spy Christopher Steele to create the now-infamous dossier. He used real Russian sources to create the document that proved to be full of egregious lies. Although the dossier was unverified, the FBI used the document for a FASA warrant to spy on Carter Page, one of Trump's then-campaign advisors.
