According to a Telegraph report, top British intelligence personnel are begging the U.S. not to declassify documents related to the Russian ‘investigation.’
“Officials with MI6, Britain’s equivalent to the CIA, have warned the Trump White House that releasing the documents could hinder intelligence gathering operations.”
President Trump said he is “very seriously” considering declassifying a number of FBI and Justice Department documents that would shed light on the origins of the FBI’s witch hunt, and some people consider, and illegitimate and treasonous attempt to topple a sitting president for political reasons.
“The MI6 opposition also raises the possibility that British officials are concerned the sought-after documents contain information that could be embarrassing to the British government.”
Americans already know the Russia investigation has several links to the U.K.
“Former MI6 officer Christopher Steele is one of the main sources of allegations of collusion between the campaign and Kremlin. And Stefan Halper, a longtime FBI and CIA informant, met with former Trump campaign aides Carter Page and George Papadopoulos during the campaign.”
“The FBI opened the probe on July 31, 2016, after the Australian government reported details of a meeting between Papadopoulos and Australian diplomat Alexander Downer.”
“Among the documents sought for declassification are 21 pages from the FBI’s application to conduct surveillance against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.”
“The FBI relied heavily on allegations made by Steele in a 35-page dossier he compiled while on the payroll of the DNC and Clinton campaign.”
Republican allies of Trump have also pressed him to release FBI and DOJ emails they say show evidence was withheld from the FISA court in its applications to spy on Page.
Many people believe the entire investigation was orchestrated by deep state actors who are still working today. They recognize that the FBI wrongfully ‘leaked’ stories to the mainstream media, and then used those ‘sources’ as reasons for wire taps and other invasion surveillance.
The former administration, many people argue, weaponized the FBI and the Justice Department to fabricate ‘evidence’ of wrongdoing, and that was the ‘insurance policy’ discussed by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Many conservatives argue that regardless of the consequences to U.S. ‘allies,’ the full extent of the corruption of the previous administration must be made public.
