President Trump on Thursday night issued a memo giving Attorney General William Barrthe authority to declassify any documents related to surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016.
Trump also ordered the intelligence community to cooperate with Barr. The memo read: “The heads of elements of the intelligence community… and the heads of each department or agency that includes an element of the intelligence community shall promptly provide such assistance and information as the Attorney General may request in connection with that review.”
“Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
Trump claims his campaign was the victim of “spying,” though the intelligence community has insisted it acted lawfully in following leads in the Russia investigation.
Last month, Barr ran into a buzz saw of criticism from Democratic lawmakers and media figures for testifying that “spying did occur” against the Trump campaign in 2016. But despite the backlash, Barr appeared to be referring to intelligence collection that already has been widely reported and confirmed.

Comrade Schiff is one of the first to come out in full blown panic mode accusing PT of a cover up of something. Comrade Schiff has been covering for his seditious comrades and will be exposed for it. Let the party begin. It’ll be fun watching all these little Stalinists sweat and squirm.
@another vet: How can he do that when he didn’t turn over his mountain of evidence to Mueller? Where is this evidence? Where are the Russians, besides those that pranked him.
(c) The authority in this memorandum shall terminate upon a vacancy in the office of the Attorney General unless expressly extended by the President.
Does this bullet proof vest make me look fat? He used an Obama EO isnt that cute?
“Weaponizing” by using it to reveal the truth and expose Schiff’s lies? Then we NEED that type of “weaponization”.
Trust in our government and elections needs to be restored. Democrats have, intentionally, caused severe damage to them both. The Russians could never have dreamed of causing the damage, turmoil and crisis that the Democrats have wrought.
@another vet: Maybe now would be a good time for Schiff to reveal all that mountain of evidence he has right at his fingertips proving Trump colluded with Russians.
@kitt: @Deplorable Me:
The old saying about if you want to know what a lefty is guilty of, just look at what they accuse others of most certainly applies here. Enjoy the show! It looks like Powers has some major league problems headed her way.
@another vet: If you want to know what the left is up to read Rules for Radicals the blueprint for the overthrow of the US government. Rules for Radicals His goal for the Rules for Radicals was to create a guide for future community organizers.
it is amazing that all of the democratic house garbage members and senate garbage originate in either CA or NY. one has to understand that when a demorat or liberal farts, numerous brain cells are lost. next time polois farts, she may have a grand mal seizure or her bain may just implode. I would suspect that as the noose grows tighter, major demorat players will leave the country or commit seppuku.
