The week after the midterm elections and when it was pretty apparent that the Democrats would be taking control of the House of Representatives, the “leadership” of that party took to the airwaves telling the world what they were going to do to grind the business of the nation, and the Trump agenda, to a screeching halt.
They claim they will be investigating the man himself, his family, business and the administration ad nauseam. It’s essentially going to be hearing central.
President Trump, for his part, decided to let the Democrats know that he was not amused. In an interview with The New York Post, he told the world what he’ll do if the Dems follow through with their plans.
“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 sitdown.
The commander-in-chief said he could 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.”
Frankly, many conservatives are foaming at the mouth waiting for those documents to be declassified. President Trump, who has the power to declassify them at will, is holding them back as leverage.
And now the leftist blogs are claiming that national security will be compromised if those documents are released in full.
Trump’s threat to declassify sensitive intelligence puts the U.S. national security at risk — but apparently that’s a price he’s willing to pay to protect himself.
Trump threatened Wednesday to jeopardize national security to protect himself, saying that if Democrats “want to play tough” by investigating him, he will strike back by declassifying documents he claims will be “devastating” to them.
“If they want to play tough, I will do it,” Trump told the New York Post. “They will see how devastating those pages are.”
After winning a majority in the House of Representatives during the midterm elections, Democrats have made it clear they’re planning to fulfill their constitutional oversight duty by launching a series of investigations into Trump and his scandal-plagued administration.
Trump quite obviously fears what these investigations may uncover — so he’s threatening to declassify sensitive intelligence and wield it as a weapon against the new Democratic majority in a last-ditch effort to protect himself.
And what about documents that are the basis for getting surveillance warrants from the FISA court is going to harm national security? Are there SAP level documents there? The codes to launch nuclear weapons? What about blueprints to NORAD?
President Donald Trump is not going to do anything that jeopardizes the nation. This is just fear mongering to whip up the Democrat base ahead of all of those representatives being exposed.
