President Trump ordered the declassification and release of myriad documents relating to the Carter Page FISA application and the “Russian collusion” hoax propagated by the mainstream media. Declassification includes aspects of the FISA application and FBI reports about all interviews conducted in conjunction with the application, including Bruce Ohr. It also includes thousands of text messages from Strzok, Page, Comey, and McCabe.
WH says “Trump has directed the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to publicly release all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr.”

President Trump ordered the declassification of sensitive documents related to the investigation into Russian election interference, a move that could eventually allow the public unprecedented access to a probe that he has repeatedly railed against.
The declassification order pertains to FBI transcripts, text messages and other law-enforcement and intelligence material related to an active investigation into some of the president’s closest advisers.
…The White House said the president made the decision in response to requests from members of Congress and to further public transparency. Legal experts and former government officials said the move represented an extraordinary level of presidential involvement in an investigation that has notched guilty pleas from five of Mr. Trump’s associates.
Leftist went crazy, arguing that Trump was “exceeding his authority” or “abusing his power” by requesting the declassification of documents. But weren’t they in agreement with Obama’s claim to ensure that the government be transparent?

Perhaps these legislators have forgotten how separation of powers works. The Department of Justice falls under the Executive, not the Legislative branch. Legislators have no authority on the matter. By order of the president the documentation must be released.
Their clammers may become muted once the documents evidence collusion at the highest levels of government against the President of the United States.
