Devin Nunes Discusses Declassification Directive – POTUS Reverses Course…

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes appears on Fox News this morning to discuss the ongoing battle between the corrupt elements within the DOJ and FBI who are working feverishly to hide information from the public.  This interview happens shortly before President Trump announces his decision to reverse course on the declassification request.

Moments after this interview President Trump tweets this:

“I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents.”

President Trump meeting with DOJ, meaning Rod Rosenstein. Notice “various unredacted documents”. Heavily referencing section 3 and 4 of the declassification directive.

“They agreed to release them but stated that so doing may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe.”

DOJ saying they will release; but note the word “perceived negative impact”. The full sunlight (full release) would undermine the legitimacy of Robert Mueller. DOJ doesn’t want to undermine the fraudulent Mueller investigation. Rosenstein is now admitting to the President, that Muellers probe is illegitimate.

“Also, key Allies’ called to ask not to release.”

As noted last night. Likely the U.K and Australian government are both concerned and likely embarrassed at the exploitation that took place. Christopher Steele (U.K), Alexander Downer (AU) etc. The collaborate ‘spy-gate’ operation (crossfire hurricane) between the CIA, FBI and DOJ-NSD is an embarrassment; and globally no-one knows the extent to which the FISA and Five-Eyes process is used, manipulated and abused.

Key point. Trump now has the leverage.

When wondering what President Trump will do with the leverage he now carries, think back to how Donald Trump (apex predator) always holds leverage for maximum impact at specifically chosen (by him) pressure points. Trump carries leverage like currency; he withdraws from positions when he gains leverage. The ability to deploy leverage at a time of his choosing is the power; the position which creates the leverage is not as powerful, and thereby discarded.

“Therefore, the Inspector General has been asked to review these documents on an expedited basis.”

DOJ tells Trump in exchange for you withholding this weapon, we will tell our IG to rush forward with his investigation. The DOJ is likely to allow Michael Horowitz to put more damaging verbiage in his report this time.

“I believe he will move quickly on this (and hopefully other things which he is looking at).”

POTUS Trump accepts the position of the DOJ; puts the leverage in his arsenal; and then pressures the DOJ to work with Horowitz and hurry-the-hell-up with the report.

“In the end I can always declassify if it proves necessary.”

If the corrupt interests within the DOJ and FBI do not uphold their end of the bargain, POTUS retains the ability to deploy the original declassification directive…. if the outcome of the IG report is not forthcoming; or if the outcome does not match the truth; he will trigger the declassification.

It is within this section where all those who understand the truth get rightly, and understandably, worried that the DOJ will renege on the deal they just made with Trump.

“Speed is very important to me – and everyone!”

Everyone understands this could have election impact. Trump telling the corrupt DOJ to get the truth in front of the American people prior to the election.

.

Again, President Trump views these events as gaining him massive leverage toward the accusations against him by Robert Mueller.  Don’t look at this through the prism of Trump supporters – look at this through the prism of President Trump.

Robert Mueller has been held over President Trump’s head like a sword of Damocles for more than a year.   The DOJ has just handed President Trump leverage over Mueller (which POTUS can use to protect his office – Trump now controls the horsehair), in exchange for not exposing the institutional corruption within the FBI and DOJ.

Leverage over Mueller is worth withdrawing the declassification directive in exchange for allowing the FBI and DOJ to manage how the institutional corruption surfaces.

President Trump agrees to allow the DOJ to use the IG report to expose the institutional corruption thereby agreeing to permit them to control the damage.  However, the institution corruption must be exposed.  If the DOJ and FBI renege on the deal; if the IG report does not expose the institutional corruption; then all agreements are null and void.

…Oh, and President Trump wants this done prior to the election.

    The Gang of Four democrats threw Rosey under the bus by going public with his commitment to them to withhold material from his boss, the president. That’s a firing offense, and they thought they would force Rosey to throw in with them to protect him from Trump. Didn’t work. Trump just spared him and in the process, turned him. Oops! That didn’t work. Bad move by the dems. Those amateurs in congress have no idea what they are up against.

    And the Brits and Aussies: Mr. President, we know some of our guys went WAY off the reservation, but we have dealt with it. Please don’t embarrass us.

      How do we even know that claim is true??? The Democrats are huge on stirring division and chaos. The more crazy things get in messaging from that side, the more desperation I read from it. As we saw from the Project Veritas videos of late, these cockroaches KNOW what they are doing is wrong and illegal and they do it anyway under the belief they cannot or will not be punished or fired.

      Among them, we now know there are thousands upon thousands of these vermin who are both conscious of what they are doing and that it is very illegal. They are subverting the most significant country in the world with their campaign of corruption and systemic rot. They have lived in the shadows all this time and are forced into the light as they attempt to stop Trump from stopping them.

      When this is over, we will live in a VERY different country. It will not soon devolve into this degree of murky again. In a sense, it may well be a “refounding” or rededication of this country again.

      Yes. VSGPOTUS has let them know that their assumptions about the “bull in the china shop” were wrong – Mythbusters wrong.

      He is now in the “wicked beautiful horns moving gracefully but stomach-churningly fast atop a multi-ton beast through a maze of glass” stage. His opponents have been duly warned not to mess with the horns – or any of the rest of it.

      Trump will see sunlight from them, or they will see sunlight from Trump. And one false move by Mueller the Clown, and the “China shop” explodes, with Americans calling for mass arrests in stadiums. Whoops. Bad caps on china.

    Trump is beating the grass to startle the snakes. It’s working. Do you see the panic in the media and Swamp creatures today? When the NYT decides to throw Rod Rosenstein under the bus, and that’s what they’re doing, you know the snakes are startled.

    A weapon is always better left unfired, and has more and continuous value as a threat. All of us here already know what’s in all these documents. And the snakes scurrying around today indicate our suspicions are correct.

    Strzok’s texts were abhorrent, but do you think they moved the needle any? Only a little. These declassed documents would perhaps move it a little more, but I doubt they’ll peg that needle.

    This is the biggest conspiracy and scandal in US history. THE BIGGEST. Better to be patient and take no action that isn’t decisive, and these declassed docs won’t be decisive right now.

    When Washington was faced with mutineers, he made sure his actions were decisive. He surrounded them, put them on trial in the field, convicted a few, then had the un-convicted mutineers line up as the firing squad to shoot bullets through their buddies’ hearts. This was decisive.

    Trump is handling this similarly in concept. He’s using the existing Swamp creatures to take down the Swamp, with Trump himself taking only a passive role, but we all know who will be sitting there silently on horseback, watching, as the Swamp creatures fire bullets through their buddies’ hearts. This day is coming, my friends.

    Rosenstein is now being offered up as sacrifice. We’ll see whether he gets tied to the stake or executes his peers. And all it took to draw out this panicked move is for Trump to grab his saber and partially withdraw it from its scabbard. Everybody understood that saber was going to draw blood, given the man wielding it. They stood down.

    I do want blood over this scandal. It’s merited. I believe there are people who should pay with their lives for this conspiracy, and I don’t say that lightly as I’m not a fan of capital punishment. But getting there requires something far more clever than the typical Swamp leaks and chickenfighting. The Swamp will fend Trump off if he assails them using Swamp tactics. They hold most of the ground.

    Muh Russia and Mueller have been a dead letter for a long time now, since the day Manafort was indicted by my lights, December 2017 or so. He tipped his hand and he was holdin’ nothin’. We need him to finish up and file his nothingburger report, then turn in his badge and be escorted out of the building by security. THAT will move the needle, and Trump’s actions this week likely bring us closer to that. A threat of declass and Rosenstein potentially being flipped will help Mr. Mueller expedite that day.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. PT is innocent and has had the leverage the whole time. He has been given bad advice,IMO. And I didn’t see where PT said anything about “get it done before the midterms”. Seems more like this move is so the chaos that will ensue after the criminal exposure will be after the election, and not distract from the midterms. If midterms is the focus, then voter fraud should have been fixed. Too late now. Onward to civil war.

  11. Okay… I apologize.

    Sundance makes sense again. When I calmed down and read it again without a pre-determined frustration that Trump was caving and this was deja vu’ all over again…. it does make sense.

    Trump pulled the lever on the declassification and they saw he was willing to wield as much power and expose as much as possible and they are freaking. He pulled it back, because he can just do it again if they act out of turn.

    As for the NY Times fake news… it has all the Fake News red flags

    1. Based on “memos” written after the fact by former crooked FBI guy McCabe. Same exact way Comey did it.

    2. Doesn’t reconcile with logic. Rosenstein signed the recommendation of the Justice Department advising Trump to fire Comey. The NYT is using the Comey firing as the reason behind Rosenstein’s anger at Trump.

    3. The NY Times is fake news. But they are helpful to people that know their modus operandi. They don’t print anything that isn’t to the benefit of the deepstate liberal agenda of the globalist cabal. They are attacking Rosenstein… which means, they believe he is a barrier to their cause.

    This New York Slimes late Friday afternoon release of some supposed Rosenstein statement about the 25th Amendment smells like your typical DeepState manure.

The lying media would then go into overdrive slamming the president calling him every name in the book from Allende to Peron to Mussolini to Hitler. However, VSGP Trump will not fall for their little scheme; and Rosenstein will remain until after Mueller’s stupid witch hunt is concluded.

    I am seeing this similar to Sundance, but a bit differently.

    1) Coming from the NYT this has to feel like an “et tu brute” moment for Dems. The screams of anguish must have clogged the phone lines this afternoon at the NYT on angry calls from senior Dems.

    2) Which is why it was THEE perfect spot to leak it to.

    3) It has the look and feel of an intel operation.

    4) BECAUSE, it looks like it may have come from Mueller. Or might have come from other Black Hat insiders. It splits ranks.

    5) BECAUSE it lays the groundwork to fire Rosenstein along with Sessions. Clear the deck.

    6) BECAUSE it is a move to cut off the head of the snake … or … at least badly wound him and send him underground and compliant instead of cocky and disobedient.

    7) BECAUSE to have the NYT print this, against their own Black Hat team, they would have to have clear and persuasive backup. One whispered phone call might not have done it.

    8) BECAUSE it gives Trump more leverage to tell Mueller to pound sand, with a pending firing of both Sessions and Rosenstein.

    9) BECAUSE that together with sending the mission to the OIG, it sends a clear signal to the Black Hats Trump did not walk into a clear Impeachment Trap by just releasing them himself, that Trump has upped his own inside DC political gamesmanship.

    10) BECAUSE it puts Trump more into the drivers seat.

    11) BECAUSE it creates the narrative in so many minds that the Black Hats are cutting Rosenstein lose to hang in the wind on his own.

    12) BECAUSE it gives Trump all of the cover he ever needed to go ahead and release them himself if he has to.

    13) BECAUSE it covers the base of Trump’s next move to do it himself, it also puts a hot poker up the butt of the OIG to do it for him.

    Given all of those positive attributes, its way too coincidental for my taste that this came from the Black Hat team. Such strokes of great good fortune are seldom this random. The facts of the story are VERY likely to be true, or the NYT would not have stepped out and away from their readership base to print it. Since Trump has ordered the material to be released, I doubt the leak would be an illegal act, just an early one. Every required step (that I know of) has already been followed, from the review by DOJ who said they would give it all to Trump and let him do it, through consultation with the other governments. It is instructive the leak was published after those steps were concluded.

    So it is just possible … possible … that this is contained in the text messages to be released, or other similar docs.

    That the WH planted the story, and it looks like a Black Hat did it.

    The President still possesses the hold cards on declassification if his orders are not carried out in a quick, timely manner.

    Papadop is using the term lured when he currently when he speaks of his discussions with Stefan Halper. The UK is likely asking the POTUS to hold off on the FISA because of their involvement in lures approved by our OIA.

    How this works. DOJ goes to the OIA who then goes to a foreign counterpart to ask permission to conduct lures on their soil if the conduct could ultimately result in an indictment and extradition request.

    There’s a million problems for UK authorizing this as the UK MILITARY will assume that they are being spied on as well when they enter THEIR foreign ALLIES (important distinction) and it will be perceived as being done WITH the agreement of the Crown (head of their military).

    Think about Trump and his understanding of basic military protocol and morale…of course he would like the Queen to be given some slack over her MI-6s GCHQ trickery to pull the wool over her dear armed forces….and create situation to entrap them. Sure they may not mind the politicians and likes of their version of Papa being snared…but this tactic is equally feasible to be performed at all levels of UK allies and where/how they have important interconnections…with National Security interests of their own.

    I still believe this aspect has been in the making since the wedding invitation announcements and the decision of the Queen to allow Harry to wear military garb. I do not think there is ‘a plan’…only the logically actions that would come at the right time as certain truths become self evident. Doesn’t mean that PDJT and the Queen couldn’t predict the future…which is NOW.

    BS, after OIG report that means very little. No Border wall, and No release of awaited documentation. Hope he has a plan to save himself and the republicans at midterms!

    I care nothing about what the allies want, since they have done enough already!

    I would think that the EUs “motivation to ensure a trade deal with the US was negotiated” would be the ‘proof’ that the documents currently in question and many others are indeed safely stored and readily accessible to President Trump. The visit by Mr. Jean-Claude earlier this year was a much better illustration of a “course reversal”. Makes one wonder if Mad Dog and President Trump went to same “life class” somewhere along the way. Both seem to be quite good at the “Be polite to everyone you meet, but have a plan to kill them….”

    The President has been offering the Socialists and Bolsheviks a way to ‘save face’ since Mr. Trump took the Oath of Office.

    This may be the last chance they have to accept it.

      Queen was pissed that her counter part in the US and official head of state was target of a coup by her her own Govt. This became a military issue for UK back when she found out.

      Plus…I think ultimately she sided with P Trump’s world view and liked what he was attempting to do in terms of trade and energy. She was helpless in the last decades to act due to her Constitutional Monarchy limitations. The appearance of a coup on an ally gives her some sway as head of military.

    This is an Act of War by Great Britain – Australia being a property of the Crown.

    This from a country that lets tweens be groomed for sexual slavery by Pakistanis (“Asian”).

    This from a country that has imprisoned Tommy Robinson for speaking out against white children being sold into sexual slavery to Muslims.

    There is no reason not to speculate. So here is some speculation:

    Prince Andrew being blackmailed by Jeffrey Epstein/Mossad (Pedo Island – Honeypot) is probably listed in the FISA application somewhere.

    All this stuff ties together. It’s a small world at the top.

    The Cabal is everywhere. Of course, we’ve know it forever but FINALLY proof is coming forward and Trump is just the guy to take down the Cabal.

    I bet they want to talk.

    This is like when the evil, scumbag villain is hanging off a building ledge facing a painful death and he suddenly becomes reasonable and accommodating. Wanting the hero to pull him in and save him.

    Trump needs to let them all drop to their miserable deaths.

    These people don’t care that they’ve stolen literally everything from their native populations. They have no guns, they have no free speech, they go to prison for stating the obvious, their children are sold to Muslims. And what for? So Prince Andrew can rape a tween.

            Are Counting Coup Now?

            The point of counting coup was to avoid bloodshed during practice (or during the real battle). Otherwise, if a partner refused to be honest in acknowledging a strike, the practice could very quickly escalate into real bloodshed as the better opponent “proved” his point by actually sticking his sword into the naysayer. Thus, counting coup was considered the honorable thing to do for all concerned. Oh yes, and people kept track. If you killed your opponent, you only could add one notch to your belt, so to speak, but counting coup took more bravery and you could add several notches to your coup stick over time.

    Look, a guy with no birth certificate and no history was allowed to become pResident of the USA. A guy with some 73 days in the Senate was installed as POTUS. He was allowed to command the most sophisticated killing machine in the history of mankind (the US Military). He was allowed to send soldiers to their deaths. He was allowed to kill anyone he wanted via drones and other methods (Seth Rich, Michael Hastings and probably Andrew Breitbart). He was allowed to steal trillions of dollars from our treasury.

    This was all out in the open. That’s how brazen they’ve all been.

    The FBI/CIA etc. have known about all these crimes for years. They’ve know and facilitated crimes by Jeffrey Epstein/Bill and Hillary Clinton/and all the other scumbags.

    THEY KNOW, THEY KNEW. THEY COVERED UP. THEY FACILITATED.

    The number of victims is staggering.

    Yeah, globalists, “Let’s talk.”

    In many respects, I very much dislike what the country is being put through while this issue is playing out. I have said very clearly in the past that I am FED UP with this nonsense.

    At this point though, I believe POTUS has used this issue in a brilliant manner.

    Enough information is out there to get peoples attention. Declassifying everything, or even more than what has been done already, leaves many swamp rats still dug into the swamp.

    By ordering declassification, POTUS turned up the heat a little and made it clear what authority he has.

    By backing off the declassification and deferring to the IG, he is essentially flushing out swamp rats from those willing to do their jobs. The IG can act and investigate, while others watch which swamp rats are still acting like swamp rats.

    Flush them all out!

    I’ve read all 4 previous pages of comments, I understand the leverage idea, I see regulars disappointed like the wind taken out of their sails, I see trolls taking advantage of that by advocating not voting, and still I must say: if one makes such a direct order, one must be willing to follow through, otherwise don’t issue it. It’s not negotiable.

    4 days ago:

    9-17-18 Statement from the Press Secretary:

    “WHITE HOUSE – At the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency, the President has directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to provide for the immediate declassification of the following materials: (1) pages 10-12 and 17-34 of the June 2017 application to the FISA court in the matter of Carter W. Page; (2) all FBI reports of interviews with Bruce G. Ohr prepared in connection with the Russia investigation; and (3) all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all Carter Page FISA applications.

    In addition, President Donald J. Trump has directed the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to publicly release all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr. ”

    —–

    Did the DNI refuse to comply? Did a DOJ official refuse to comply?
    Sally Yates was fired for insubordination when she refused to comply to an order from her superior, President Trump.

    Again, if one issues such a direct order, one must be willing to follow through, otherwise don’t issue it. It’s not negotiable. Not with the corrupt deepstate, nor with the two foreign “allies.” It’s not a business deal. It’s the national security and freedom of Americans.

    FAST, overwhelming offense will shut deepstate’s arrogant mouths, get Kavanaugh confirmed and a whole lot of other good things.

    Having had time to cool off and mull this over for a few hours, I’ve come to different take, though it’s different then Sundance’s. I don’t think this is a leverage move so much as a legitimacy move.

    There’s a very good chance the info in this will torpedo the Mueller probe. If the OIG gives the go ahead to release, any consequences that arise from the info will have the cover of legitimacy. The OIG will have seen the info, they will be aware of the implications and where it leads, and say this is a problem worth being addressed. Mueller’s fall won’t be from someone (Trump) with personal interest but the truth behind him, but from the government’s very own corruption watchdogs.

    Since September is almost over, I’m skeptical about this dropping before the midterms. However, if this leads to a clean and expedient dismantling of the Mueller probe, I’d personally say this is actually a stronger move then releasing now. Naturally, this is of course assuming the OIG isn’t compromised, which isn’t something I have much faith in myself given the Mid-Year report dud. I’m still decently worried they’ll tank this an then we’ve given the opposition a gun to shoot at us, saying “even the IG says don’t release it!”

    One other thing, It would seem from the tweets that all the speculation and news about the DoJ and FBI stonewalling this was wrong/fake. It sounds like all the stuff has been handed to Trump. I guess the dirty Gang of Eight letter failed to impress.

    • Right. Can you see that declassifying all of this might bring an end to the Mueller Investigation and heap even more people screaming obstruction of justice on the President’s back?

      Why not let someone neutral, such as the OIG handle the redactions and then nothing soils the President.

      There is nothing here showing incompetence by the President, or that he has caved to the deep state…..He, unlike some posting in this thread, has obviously thought this through…..

    President Trump is an student of The Art of War. To understand that is to understand Trump.

    As much as I would love to see the cabal of traitors exposed and prosecuted, Trump knows that boxing them in gives him power. He is in control, calling the shots.

    One of Sun Tzu’s tenets is “When you are strong, appear weak.” Trump has been playing this out with mastery. He is playing a game of Three Tier Chess with a world full of people playing a game of Checkers. He is a genius and underestimating him is fatal. That is why he is always ten steps ahead. He has these people just where he wants them.

    As his supporters it is imperative we understand this so we don’t create a circular firing squad.

    In the end, Good triumphs over evil, and Trump will win… again.

  45. It would be a cold day in hell before Donald Trump would allow a bureaucrat from the swamp to hold any leverage over his Presidency. The case has been laid out magnificently that he holds a very important card; redaction authority. There is zero need to rush forward with anything other than a much anticipated IG report. Thank you for the insight!
