In breaking news, it appears that President Trump has had enough and is taking matters into his own hands when it comes to declassification.
John Solomon has been told by his so-far impeccable sources that in the name of transparency, Trump is “putting the finishing touches” on a White House initiative to finally declassify certain documents that have been held from public view for a ridiculously long time. These will focus on the failed “Trump/Russia” investigation, but Solomon says there three sets of other Obama-era documents he expects to see declassified, and they are big deals, important enough to “fundamentally change the public’s understanding of history (yes) and identify ways to improve governance.”
Here they are. Read it and weep…
1) National security assessments produced under Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that concern Russian nuclear giant Rosatom’s efforts to acquire uranium in the United States. Recall that Hillary sat on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which approved the sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One –- and thus 20 percent of our uranium supply –- to Rosastom, despite an FBI investigation that found serious bribery, kickbacks and extortion within that Russian company.
These reportedly show that the Obama administration was lying when they said there were no national security reasons to oppose the sale of Uranium One. Recall that this was back when the Clinton Foundation was raking in millions in donations from parties interested in the transaction and Bill got $500,000 just for giving a speech in Moscow.
2) Obama’s private conversations with Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, setting the terms for the Iranian nuclear deal set in 2016 (and thankfully later canceled by Trump). Once again, Obama was misrepresenting the terms and circumstances of the deal to the American people. At the time, serious red flags were ignored; for example, we had intelligence that Iran had already violated the international nuclear non-proliferation treaty for years. According to sources, the correspondence shows “a level of courtship, concession and trust with Iran that exceeded the U.S. intelligence assessments at the time.”
3) A highly classified set of documents relating to the question of whether or not Hillary Clinton violated the law by transmitting classified emails over her nonsecure private server. Sources who have seen this say it contains “explosive revelations” about what really happened with Hillary’s emails and reveals serious national security issues raised by what she did.
So there you have it. I call that a good start. Go, Mr. President!
