Here We Go… DNI Avril Haines Tells Congress She Will Undertake “Damage Assessment” of Documents Taken by FBI at Mar-a-Lago that Were Unclassified by President Trump

Former hipster Avril Haines is now the current Director of National Intelligence under the Biden regime.

On Friday Haines announced she was going to undertake a “damage assessment” of the trove of documents the FBI confiscated from President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago.

The DOJ-FBI raided the former president’s home two months before the election.

On Saturday US District Judge Aileen Cannon from the southern district of Florida on Saturday announced the “preliminary intent to appoint a special master” to review all of the records seized by the FBI during its unprecedented raid on President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago.

The regime will not quit until its detractors are adequately silenced.

The Daily Mail reported:

Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines has told Congress the U.S. intelligence community will undertake a damage assessment of the trove of classified material held at former President Trump’s Florida golf club for more than a year.

The assurance, contained in a letter to House Oversight Committee Chair Rep. Carolyn Maloney and House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, is the first indication that the Biden administration will evaluate the potential national security risks.

It comes after a heavily redacted document released Friday revealed 15 boxes of documents returned from Mar-a-Lago contained 184 classified documents, 67 confidential documents and 25 top secret documents.

Included in the trove were documents that could compromise ‘clandestine human sources’ – the type of information that could pose a grave risk to people furnishing secrets to the US government.

Haines told the two panel chairs that her office will conduct an ‘assessment of the potential risk to national security that would result from the disclosure of the relevant documents,’ according to a letter dated Friday.

The two committee chairs said the unsealed affidavit ‘affirms our grave concern that among the documents stored at Mar-a-Lago were those that could endanger human sources. It is critical that the [Intelligence Community] move swiftly to assess and, if necessary, to mitigate the damage done—a process that should proceed in parallel with DOJ’s criminal investigation.’

Maloney had turned up the heat on the pressure for a review on Friday, when she tweeted that Trump’s ‘reckless handling of our country’s most sensitive documents placed our national security at grave risk and blatantly violated the Presidential Records Act.’

She said it made such an assessment ‘even more urgent.’
