It’s been about a year since President Donald Trump teased the idea of declassifying virtually every document related to the “Spygate” scandal — a counterintelligence operation to keep him from winning office followed by a bona fide soft coup attempt to drive him out.
“The documents to be declassified also include 12 FBI reports on interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all other applications to surveil Carter Page,” Fox News and other outlets reported.
But it didn’t happen. For some reason, the president was talked into delaying the declassification process.
Then again in May, POTUS instructed the federal law enforcement and intelligence community to turn over all documents requested by Attorney General William Barr for declassification as they relate to “Spygate.”
We haven’t heard anything since. Meanwhile, the hostile establishment media and Democrats have sort of moved on from Spygate and the Mueller probe, settling on new strategies aimed at driving down the president’s polling numbers and, eventually, from office.
They are shifting their anti-Trump narrative back to “racist”, “white supremacist”, “xenophobe,” as the mainstream media screech “recession!” But it could be that the administration is getting ready to play some ‘trump cards’ (sorry).
Investigative reporter John Solomon of The Hill, who has been an extremely reliable source in terms of revealing new information related to Spygate, notes that should the president decide to release 10 documents and document chains, Democrats would be in heap big trouble.
And given Solomon’s timing — writing about this now — he may be tipping us off to what’s coming.
