Senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley authored a letter to AG Merrick Garland calling him out for not following through with Trump’s orders to declassify the Russian Probe hoax. Trump ordered Garland to release FBI documents related to the real ‘big lie’—The Trump-Russia collusion hoax.

“produce those records to Congress and the American people without improper redactions.” They wrote:

“We remain concerned that over one year from the date then-President Trump directed the Justice Department to declassify certain Crossfire Hurricane records the Justice Department has not only failed to declassify a single page, the Department has failed to identify for Congress records that it knows with certainty to be covered by the declassification directive.

“Your letter noted that on July 9, 2021, the Department ‘offered to compare the documents we understand to be covered by the Memorandum with the documents that had been previously provided to Congress.’

“However, your letter also stated that the Department ‘has been taking steps to determine’ which documents can be disclosed and that review is ‘ongoing.’

“It is incumbent upon the Department to determine which records are covered by the declassification directive.

“When the Department is able to (1) identify with certainty the records subject to the declassification directive; (2) confirm the records are not those that have already been reviewed by our staff; and (3) agree that no improper redactions will be placed on those records, our staff stand ready to review in camera prior to production to Congress.

“Absent those conditions, our staff should not have to spend potentially multiple days and countless hours in the Department’s classified facility only to play a guessing game with the Department about what document may or may not be covered by the declassification directive and potentially review records that have already been produced to Congress.

“Our oversight efforts are based on our unyielding belief that the American people deserve to know the complete truth about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

“We request a detailed response with respect to those questions and a commitment to the aforementioned conditions no later than March 1, 2022.

From Fox News:

The Trump administration also declassified a 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment footnote, which showed the anti-Trump dossier created by Christopher Steele and paid for by the Clinton campaign through law firm Perkins Coie, had “limited corroboration.”

That dossier helped serve as the basis for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants obtained against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Meanwhile, Ratcliffe, in October 2020, declassified a CIA memo sent to then FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok referring Clinton’s “plan” to the FBI for potential investigative action.

…”Per FBI verbal request, CIA provides the below examples of information the CROSSFIRE HURRICANE fusion cell has gleaned to date,” the memo continued.

“An exchange [REDACTED] discussing US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning US presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering US elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”
