Trump Threatens to Declassify “Devastating” Docs if Democrats Investigate Him
WASHINGTON, DC – November 29, 2018
We have written before that the global economy has reached an “epochal pivot,” a moment when the false prosperity created from the trillions in printed money by the world’s central banks lurches violently into reverse. The crisis is global and Trump has no good way out of it. If we discard the details, he had only 2 ways: to save the world dollar system at the expense of the US economy or to save the US economy at the expense of the world financial system. Trump and the elite groups behind him have chosen the second option. The globalists represented by the Clinton clan want to go for the first option.
We also described possible scenarios. Literally the second step in the chain of events leading to the beginning of the civil war was Trump’s publication of “details of the investigations (though far from everything is cleared up) against individuals in the FBI, CIA and other secret agencies, as well as the leadership of the Democratic Party and the previous Administration regarding their crimes and corruption.” Looks like our predictions are starting to come true.
Over the past two days, President Trump has given a series of freewheeling interviews where he has threatened a government shutdown, expressed his regret over choosing Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, and even opined that Janet Yellen was “too short” to be chairwoman of the Federal Reserve.
And in his latest informal chat with the New York Post from behind the Resolute Desk, the President threatened once again to retaliate against Democrats if they try to “play tough” by investigating him—this time by declassifying a wide swath of “devastating” documents related to the Mueller probe, which he had initially planned to do in September before changing his mind.
“If they go down the presidential harassment track, if they want go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me. I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard they’d never been hit like that,” he said during a 36-minute Oval Office sit-down.
He threatened to declassify FISA warrant applications and other documents from Robert Mueller’s probe — and predicted the disclosure would expose the FBI, the Justice Department, and the Clinton campaign as being in cahoots to set him up.
“I think that would help my campaign. If they want to play tough, I will do it. They will see how devastating those pages are.”
“It’s much more powerful if I do it then,” Trump said, “because if we had done it already, it would already be yesterday’s news.”
Trump revealed his playbook just as Democrats are set to take over House committees in January where they have threatened to investigate his business dealing, relationship with Russia and his tax returns, among other alleged transgressions—something Trump characterized as “presidential harassment.”
In September, a group of Trump allies in the House – led by Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York – called on Trump to declassify scores of Justice Department documents they believe undercut the start of the Russia investigation and show bias against Trump.
The documents include Justice officials’ request to surveil Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and memos on DOJ official Bruce Ohr’s interactions with Christopher Steele, the author of a controversial dossier that alleged Trump ties with Russia.
Trump initially agreed to declassify the documents, including text messages sent by former FBI officials James Comey, Andrew G. McCabe as well as Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Ohr. Trump allies believe the revelations will show favoritism toward Hillary Clinton and a plot to take down Trump.
Trump then said he hesitated to release the documents because his lawyer, Emmet Flood, had advised him not to—instead recommending that he wait for a more politically advantageous opportunity.
“He didn’t want me to do it yet, because I can save it,” Trump said.
The President also pushed back on the notion that all the Justice Department documents should eventually be released for the sake of transparency.
“Some things maybe the public shouldn’t see because they are so bad,” Trump said, making clear it wasn’t damaging to him, but to others. “Maybe it’s better that the public not see what’s been going on with this country.”
Speaking during what ended up being a contentious press conference on the day after the midterms, President Trump threatened to assume a “war posture” should Democrats try to investigate him, warning “two can play at that game,” before claiming that the American public was already suffering from “investigation fatigue.”
