Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, Warner Demand DOJ and FBI to Defy Trump Declassification Order

The left is making no secret of the fact they are trying to undermine President Trump. Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff and Warner put out a shocking letter that called for the Department of Justice and FBI to defy the Trump declassification order.

The letter is ordering intelligence agencies to ignore the fact that President Trump has authority over the Executive Branch. This deals with the order Trump made to declassify several documents involving the Russian investigation. The Democrats sent the letter calling on the intelligence agencies to ignore Trump’s order until given the chance to consult with Congress.

Per Daily Caller:

A small group of House Republicans have pressed Trump to declassify and release the documents. Led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, the Republicans claim that the documents show that the FBI abused the FISA process in order to surveil the Trump campaign.

The Democrats argue that Trump’s action is a “brazen abuse of power” aimed at undermining the special counsel’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

They further claimed that “absent an indictment,” the subjects of federal investigations “should not be able to access law enforcement or related national security information for any reason.”

In the requested briefing, Democrats want to find out what review process will be undertaken during declassification.

They also want to inquire about proposed redactions in the documents as well as “plans to protect investigative equities and sources and methods, including efforts to mitigate harm that may result from these disclosures.”

At this point it is still unclear whether or not the efforts by the Democrats will delay the declassification process.

On Monday Nunes said that the records should be released in a matter of days. While doing an interview with Fox News, Nunes said that the process of the release of the Carter Page FISA was “very, very simple.”
