HERE WE GO=> Rep DeSantis Demands Declassification of All DOJ Docs Related to Russia Dossier

“The American people deserve answers; the American people have the right to know,” says Rep. DeSantis.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan Tuesday requesting all documents the House Intel Committee possesses related to the Russia dossier be declassified.

Rep. DeSantis is a rising star. He has been demanding answers on the Russia dossier and previously demanded all Obama-Comey FISA apps be declassified.

DeSantis made this request of declassification pursuant to Rule X of the House rules.

Rep. DeSantis said, “The bureaucracies at FBI and DOJ have refused to answer basic questions about the origins of the Russian counterintelligence investigation or provide a full accounting of how the government utilized the Steele dossier.”

Rep. DeSantis then tweeted out a copy of the letter he sent to House Speaker Paul Ryan and said, “The American people deserve answers. I’m requesting Speaker Ryan ask, pursuant to House rules, Chairman Nunes to declassify any documents his committee may have related to the Steele dossier.”

Excerpt of letter DeSantis sent to House Speaker Paul Ryan:

The American people have the right to know whether government agents such as Peter Strzok inappropriately intervened in the 2016 presidential election against then-candidate Donald J. Trump. On January 3, 2018, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes announced that his committee will receive all documents it sought from the Department of Justice related to the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation. The American people have a right to know to what extent the federal government made use of the dossier.

I, therefore, request you direct Chairman Nunes to utilize the process as described in Rule X of the House Rules to declassify documents in the committee’s possession related to the Steele dossier.

It was first reported by The Daily Caller that the House Intel Committee received all docs requested on the Russia dossier from the DOJ and FBI Monday.

According to the Daily Caller, Nunes and the House Intel Committee reviewed all FBI and DOJ docs on the dossier including the FISA apps:

The committee was able to review Friday all FBI and DOJ documents on the Trump dossier, former MI-6 British agent Christopher Steele who authored the dossier, and Fusion GPS, the political opposition firm that hired Steele. DOJ also provided Obama administration applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which could approve the surveillance of the Trump transition team, according to a source with direct knowledge of the case.

These FISA apps hold the answers to many many questions the Intel Committee is asking. What prompted this entire Russia investigation? Who requested the FISA apps and under what conditions?

We want answers now!
