President Trump ordered the federal government to declassify “key” material related to FISA warrants, DOJ text messages, and Russia intel Monday night; setting the stage for a potential showdown with the Department of Justice.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the move, saying the Commander-in-Chief instructed the DOJ and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to release the material “at the request of a number of committees of Congress and for reasons of transparency.”
“The documents to be declassified also include all FBI reports on interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr,” writes Fox News.
The President also ordered the release of 21 pages of material related to FISA warrant applications surrounding his former campaign staffer Carter Page.

DOJ EXPOSÉ: New Strzok Texts Show Officials Were ‘LEAKING LIKE MAD’ After 2016 Election
Recently released text messages from anti-Trump DOJ officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are shedding new light on the stunning level of political bias at the Department of Justice, with new communications showing officials were “leaking like mad” after the 2016 election.
According to the Washington Examiner, the exchanges reveal the massive number of intentional leaks coming from inside the DOJ and the FBI regarding the Department’s investigation into Russian collusion.
“A newly released series of text messages from former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page — the pair involved in an extramarital affair and shared texts critical of President Trump — show that others may have been ‘leaking like mad’ ahead of the federal Russia probe,” writes the Examiner.
“Oh, remind me to tell you tomorrow about the times doing a story about the rnc hacks,” Page told Strzok in December 2016.
“Think our sisters have begun leaking like mad,” Strzok mysteriously replied. “Scorned and worried, and political, they’re kicking into overdrive.”

“My recollection it was a short meeting, somewhere between 15 to 30 minutes, probably around 15 minutes,” Strzok said.
“And your testimony is: Bob Mueller did not kick you off because of the content of your texts; he kicked out you off because of some appearance he was worried about,” Gowdy asked.
“If you want to represent what you said accurately I’m happy to answer that question, but I don’t appreciate what was originally said being changed,” shot back Strzok.
“I don’t give a damn what you appreciate Agent Strzok,” Gowdy said. “I don’t appreciate having an FBI agent with an unprecedented level of animus working on two major investigations during 2016.”
