Trump Threatens to Declassify “Devastating” Carter Page FISA Docs and Other Records From Mueller’s Probe
President Trump told the New York Post in an Oval Office interview Wednesday that he will declassify documents that will be ‘devastating’ for the Deep State and Democrats if they harass him with more probes.
The President said he is waiting for the perfect time to declassify the Carter Page FISA docs because if he already did, it would have been yesterday’s news.
“If they go down the presidential harassment track, if they want go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me. I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard they’d never been hit like that,” Trump told the New York Post.
President Trump previously issued an immediate declassification order of the Carter Page FISA docs and other pertinent Russia records.
Trump then reversed his order after foreign allies begged him to keep the documents under wrap.
The President also told the New York Post Wednesday that his lawyer Emmet Flood advised him to wait to declassify the documents in order to use it as political leverage.
“He [Emmet Flood] didn’t want me to do it yet, because I can save it,” Trump said.
The president also pushed back on the notion that all the Justice Department documents should eventually be released for the sake of transparency.
“Some things maybe the public shouldn’t see because they are so bad,” Trump said, making clear it wasn’t damaging to him, but to others. “Maybe it’s better that the public not see what’s been going on with this country.”
The President may be gearing up to go after Obama’s criminal administration–but it’s all about timing.
On Wednesday morning Trump retweeted an image of top Obama administration officials behind bars–including Rosenstein and Mueller!
