BREAKING: House Oversight Chairman Demands Declassification of DOJ/FBI DOSSIER
Chairman of the House Oversight Subcommittee on National Security Representative Ron DeSantis asked Speaker Paul Ryan to declassify DOJ/FBI files related to the Trump dossier.
In an official letter, DeSantis asked that the DOJ/FBI letters and files be declassified because he feels the American people need to know the truth about the entire “Dossier” ordeal.
DeSantis, the chairman of the House Oversight subcommittee on National Security, formally asked Ryan in a letter to invoke Rule X in order to declassify all documents obtained by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
Under House rules, the speaker of the House acts as an ex-officio member of any select committee, which includes the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Under Rule X, the speaker along with a majority vote by the committee can allow for the disclosure of “any information in its possession after a determination by the select committee that the public interest would be served by such disclosure.”
For months, many Americans questioned the validity of the dossier. We’ve learned that much of the dossier is a complete fabrication. Moreover, the way the dossier was presented as gospel for the FBI has the agency under scrutiny.
As Real Clear Politics reported when more information about the nature of the dossier was revealed:
President Trump holds a brief presser with members of the media Wednesday afternoon before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn. Trump addressed the opposition research dossier on him that was purchased by the Clinton campaign from Fusion GPS a “disgrace,” adding that they’re “very embarrassed by it.” Trump called it a “fake dossier.” (Full video below)
“I think it’s very sad what they’ve done with this fake dossier, it was made up and I understand they made a tremendous amount of money, and Hillary Clinton always denied it, the Democrats always denied it. And now only because it’s going to come out in a court case they said, yes, they admitted it and they are embarrassed by it. I think it’s a disgrace, it’s a very sad commentary on politics in this country,” Trump told reporters.
Accusations have been soaring left and right at Pres. Trump and his campaign staff ranging from collusion with Russia, obstruction of justice, by which the leftist media’s fake news propaganda machine has been drooling ever since Pres. Trump was sore in the office.
The Daily Caller reported on the origins of what now most people consider a Democrat-fabricated fake news document.
Former MI-6 British spy Christopher Steele authored the 35-page document under a retainer by Fusion-GPS, a Washington, D.C.-based political opposition firm. Both the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid for the dossier in 2016.
California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and other members of his committee gained full access to the documents Friday.
The documents also included possible Obama administration use of the dossier to justify surveillance of Trump transition officials.
“The American people deserve answers,” DeSantis said in a statement. “I am asking Speaker Ryan to ask, pursuant to House rules, Chairman Nunes to declassify any documents his committee may have related to the Steele dossier, as maintaining integrity in our nation’s law enforcement agencies is integral to our democracy.”
“The more we learn about the production of the discredited Steele dossier, the more it appears that a select group of FBI and Justice Department officials utilized what was effectively Hillary Clinton’s political opposition research document,” the congressmen wrote.
We can and will get to the bottom of this controversy. And the Democrats will rue the day they concocted this ruse.
We predicted that many Democrats will finally see the inside of prison over this.
Many Americans believe Hillary Clinton, James Comey, and other crooked Democrats are untouchable. And had things stayed status quo, indeed they were.
But things are different now. And not only will the Clintons and most of the former Obama FBI go down, but so will many others. Included in that list is Barack Obama.
The Left protected Obama for his entire presidency. Further, nothing would have changed with Hillary Clinton’s election. Despite their best efforts under President Trump, the criminals now look for hiding places.
As early as March 2017, Real Clear Politics floated the notion of Obama being in big trouble:
President Trump recently tweeted claiming that former President Obama wiretapped him during his campaign. One can only imagine how nuts the media would have gone if the roles had been reversed: President Trump wiretapping either Obama or the Clintons, though his DOJ could have authority to do just that given the expansive leaks of intelligence information by Obama and Clinton supporters the last few months. Heck, he could wiretap the media at this point, legally and legitimately, as the sources of these unlawful leaks, for which Obama himself set precedent. Do liberals understand what Pandora’s Box Obama opened up by Obama using the powers of the NSA, CIA and FBI to spy on his political opponents? Even Nixon never did that.
All the fake news media proclaimed that Trump wasn’t “wiretapped”. But they never disputed he may have been surveilled.
Americans can hardly wait to get to the bottom of this farce. We will prove yet again how scandalous the Obama administration is.
