Default Democrats make last-ditch effort to block trump declassification

Oh my, after insisting we must have an investigation to get to the bottom of Russian election meddling and Trump's so-called collusion with them Democrats are objecting to the President declassifying materials related to the investigation.

Leading congressional Democrats are looking to stall the process to release documents related to the Russia investigation, which President Donald Trump ordered declassified on Monday.

Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Mark Warner, sent a letter Tuesday asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to provide an “immediate briefing” to the Gang of Eight before declassifying and releasing the documents.

The four Democrats expressed “profound alarm” at Trump’s order to declassify the records.
Notorious Trump critic the Wapo has "democracy dies in darkness" on the masthead but to the Democrats a democracy dependent on leaks is just fine as long as they control the leakers.

Resistance Democrats have vigorously defended the FBI and DOJ under Obama spying on Trump's campaign claiming that any criticism is an attack on the rule of law. But now they object to the public release of materials showing what materials were used by the "Patriots in the FBI and DOJ to spy on Trump's campaign.

Trump also ordered the declassification of FBI notes from interviews used in connection with the Page FISAs as well as notes from interviews with Bruce Ohr, the Justice Department official who met numerous times with Christopher Steele, the author of the anti-Trump dossier.

Trump also demanded the release of Russia-related text messages from former FBI officials James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page. He also ordered the release of Ohr’s text messages.
Never mind the extensive efforts Congress has made to obtain uncensored documents from the DOJ and FBI, the important factor is that Trump wants it.

What is a 30 something year old single man with a rock in one hand and a Honduran flag in the other?

An asylum seeker.

It's amazing to see the cockroaches that scramble away when a light is shown on them. This should have a similar affect on the Congress critters and the other's in government that were complicit to the underhanded tactics used to discredit the Man elected by the citizens of the United States, to serve in the office of the President.
To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead - Thomas Paine
