WASHINGTON – September 18, 2018
President Donald Trump has directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to provide for the immediate declassification a number of documents related to the Russia investigation.
This was reported on the website of the White House.
He also has directed the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to publicly release all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of the former Director of the FBI James Comey, his Deputy, Andrew McCabe, a former FBI agent Peter Strzok, , FBI lawyer Lisa Page and former official of the US Department of justice Bruce Ohr.
Trump has said that the investigation of the" Russian intervention" cost him 25 points of support in the polls.
While my (our) poll numbers are good, with the Economy being the best ever, if it weren’t for the Rigged Russian Witch Hunt, they would be 25 points higher! Highly conflicted Bob Mueller & the 17 Angry Democrats are using this Phony issue to hurt us in the Midterms. No Collusion!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 15, 2018
According to The Hill, president Trump signed an executive order allowing sanctions on foreign companies, organizations or individuals the government determines to have interfered in U.S. elections.
U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats accused Russia of "interfering" in the upcoming U.S. midterm elections.
“This clearly is a process put in place to try and ensure we are doing every possible thing we can to prevent any interference in our election,” Coats told reporters.
Russian officials have repeatedly denied accusations of attempts to interfere in the election campaigns of other States.
