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.

  4. Your logic doesn’t work out, Sundance. IF the information POTUS ordered released destroys the Mueller witch hunt AND exposes massive corruption in the DOJ/FBI then that accomplishes Trump’s goals far more than simply having “leverage” over the DOJ. None of this makes sense.

      Correct. Trump already had the leverage against the Mueller “Russian” witch-hunt, as he could declassify at any time and was using the leverage applied by Nunes, et al, in Congress requesting the declassification to do so.

      This doesn’t give him leverage over the witch hunt. He already had that. What this may do, however, it give him leverage over supposedly “allied” governments who are not, in fact, allies. The only possible objection foreign governments could have over declassifying internal U.S. FISA info on a U.S. electoral candidate is if those foreign governments were involved illegally, and committed arguably “acts of war” against the United States and the U.S. President.

      Now that would be some big-time leverage.

        I will add this, PDJT is “letting” the DOJ tell the tale. If it is not told to his satisfaction, all of his powers are reserved. This is beautiful.

        Now, it will not be Mr. President telling the story, it will be the agencies putting it out. If they obfuscate, POTUS declassified and drops the hammer.

        I expect in the end the agencies spill, and PDJT fills in the cracks to complete the portrait.

        All leverage maintained, and the ability to humiliate offending underlings (ROSEY, Wray) if POTUS isn’t happy with their expansiveness.

        That’s how I see it.

      Declassification destroys Mueller, but also destroys PDJT relationship with Great Britain. Being on good terms with the British is more valuable than immediately removing the threat from Mueller. Mueller and Rosenstein are still going down, it is now just a matter of time. PDJT keeps good relations with the British, gets rid of the witch hunt, and retains leverage over the DOJ/FBI.

        I might agree to a way to tell the tale, but the Tommies participated in a coup, as did the Ausies, and there must be a severe price paid for that. How a rebalance is achieved, I would consider, but the two countries are going to pay up big time.

        Supposed Allies better understand you don’t ever do this to a friend.
        Without The US, one country would be speaking German, the other Japanese.

      Dawg….. Read Sundance’s article again.

      The threat to de-classify has nuetralised them all.

      The leverage the President has is his message of that leverage.


      Now all investigations into me are finished.
      You will completely cooperate wth the IG in all his requests. This puts the responsibility on the IG, now with fully cooperating Agencies.

      The foreign elements have been put on notice. End your schemes or your people will know what you did.

      Look. He can blow this whole thing up before the mid-terms, but what does he have now.

      Winning the mid-terms because:

      The Approval of Kavanaugh in a few days
      The end of the Mueller probe. Do you see how he is working this? With the leverage he is making the DOJ end it
      He will get the money for the wall.

      By doing it this way, with leverage, he throws the responsibility to the DOJ etc to clean up their act. He is destroying them by using ther own hands.

      Put Genus ….VSG….. He has just flipped everything around on them.

      And still maintains the threat of de-classifying everything.

      Watch. Now there will be a whole bunch of resignations and do you know why?

      He has just proven to them, and us, he knows everything….everything…

      Sure we can prosecute them all, but why delay MAGA by getting into urinateing contests for the next two years.

      Get all the judges in place
      Finish the wall
      Win the mid-terms

    • Its a game of ‘nuclear chicken.’ Mueller’s nuke is his report to Congress a la “high crimes and misdemeanors”. Trump’s nuke is declassify and expose all these corrupt scumbags. Trump and Rosie got together to measure the length and breadth of their respective arsenals. While Rosie’s is smaller, it can still result in an impeachment proceeding with unpredictable outcomes and POTUS is for the moment an important crutch holding up Western civilization itself. Taking the easy, albeit smaller, victory here is wise so as to avoid uncertainties and unwanted risks associated with going to the mattresses with declassification. So the stalemate continues for a little while longer.


    • Doug says:

      The problem POTUS is perhaps grappling with is the extent to which the exposure of the involvement of the UK and AUS intell (perhaps even Isreali) damages them.
      If you have been following PapaD’s recent interviews and Twitter you’ll know he is exposing the overseas framing operation.
      Considering VSGPOTUS’s comments last night regarding frantic calls from TWO “very good allies” desperate pleas to restrain disclosure, my guess is THIS is what is behind the reconsideration by POTUS.

    Ok, a lot to digest here again. Is PDJT now applying direct pressure on his IG Sessions, to see if he actually does his job? And if he doesn’t- does that set up a good reason to fire him?
    The Rosenstein angle was a shocker. Are we to believe this? It is being reported by Adam Goldman (of Strozk/Page infamy) and I presume he is on that list of reporters being paid by Fusion GPS. I guess the better question is- why is this article being put out now? Are they trying to get Rosenstein fired or to besmirch him because the swamp worries he will turn on them and release the documents unredacted now?

    Well I finally understand how the President works I just hope I can remember the lesson this time.

    Seems he lets things go natural like the Inspector Genral report on Hillery investigation see how people do things and what their plays are. Then he creates levrage to counteract a repeat of that in the followup.

    He learns your moves then prepares to counter them on what he considers to be the real issue.

    Also allows him to see who is allied with him who is indifferent and who is against and he can then know what to do with those people.

    A good example of this is the GOP Primary debates. In the First debate the POTUS let everyone do their thing then in the 2nd and on he had all their numbers and knew exactly how to deal with them and apply his levrage.

Remember that the IG draft needs at least two weeks lead time so that the involved parties have a chance to add any exculpatory input. I really hope I’m wrong, but I think the chances of seeing this report before November are slim.

    THROW US A MEATY BONE. While it’s fun watching Justin from Canada, and his dwarf sidekick get their butts kicked up and down the block – we need BIG VISIBLE PROGRESS HERE TO EXPOSE THE LIES SOON – or it’s all just “more of the same”…

      “I want my wall” and “You didn’t lock her up” will have an impact on turn out unless positive steps towards those outcomes happens soon IMO. My wife said she won’t vote ever again if “Trump” doesn’t restore the law. “He had the chance already” is what she says.

          But in Jan we will be seating the new Dem house and senate, a tad late in my book. This doesn’t happen this week or next I am done with politics and going to live out the years I have left and enjoy them, tired of this pit in my gut getting excited then back to defeat. have busted my butt for Trump but getting harder everyday, I stopped sending money last month as i have no idea how is being used or for sure where it is going.

      I may STAY HOME come 11/6, much less go out and campaign for R choices.

      we are going to get our asses handed to us come Nov.

      I know what have a bunch of solid policy wins in our column so far – but if the dems take one/both houses in Nov – we’re getting NOTHING DONE.

      Staying home and not voting will be a self-fulfilling prophecy then, won’t it?

      President Trump needs a HUGE majority in House and Senate if we want to see everything accomplished that we voted for. SO THAT MEANS YOU HAVE TO VOTE FOR REPUBLICANS on Nov 6th – no matter what! Voting is how we win. We got the fighter, now lets give him the manpower to go for all the winnamins!

      Fortunately there’s a few weeks left for you to come to your senses before 11.6. POTUS almost singlehandedly is dealing with 30 yrs of treasonous activities by all the presidents, culminating in blatant illegal activity by Zero. Honestly, do you really have to hear it again? I don’t like the retraction, but apparently POTUS has something bigger to be gotten, which I don’t really understand, but I am going to accept it for what it is. So, you have a few weeks to be a wimp. Then get off your ass and vote so our country can get out of this quagmire of sh*t those treasonous presidents dumped on us. And if you don’t vote MAGA you are no better than the traitors and in bed with them.

      DO NOT STAY HOME! On any election day! It doesn’t matter how many times we may be disappointed in any given individual. What matters is the continuing fight against progzis and their communist handlers to wrest back control of our nation and our communities. Trump is our first round since Reagan in this fight. We were on the ropes for 28 years. We had one chance to turn it around. Trump has given us that chance. He may flag in his resolve or be blocked in ways that can’t be immediately over-come, and/or he may be betrayed (he has certainly been and continues to be betrayed by many deep stankers). But he is one guy and this is one round in a fight that doesn’t allow TKOs or winning/losing on “points.” It’s a full knock-out or nothing. So GET F’N ANGRY! Not just cold anger, but some hot, motivating anger that’ll propel you and everyone you know to campaigns, caucuses, and to the polls every dayum time. If reading prognostications and theories that seem to repeat themselves like “Ground Hog Day,” is depressing, stop reading the BS and just deal with the facts that are right in front of you. Never vote for a Demonrat! Always vote for the best, most victory-capable Rethugnican, regardless of BS purity tests.

      While I’m disappointed in what VSGPDJT appears to be doing–I want the declassification of “We the People’s” information to be done completely, NOW!–there is no downside to voting in the mid-terms only for MAGA people. Don’t anyone flake out!

    Like just about everybody else on this site, I want to trust Sundance’s analysis, and want to believe Trump has all of this where he wants it. But it’s getting to be too nuanced and too clever by half. There is no ‘bargain’ for the DOJ/FBI to uphold that preserves the institutions; the truth, if it comes out, will rightly destroy them. If the truth doesn’t come out with full disclosure, they stay intact, and America and Trump lose. I don’t see a middle ground bargain that can be a ‘success’ for Trump.

    Besides, the truth is more or less out there already for those discerning enough to see it, including the UK and Australian efforts to collaborate with Brennan to undermine Trump. All that needs to happen is for the unredacted documents to confirm it all.

    Nunes has many of the unredacted documents…why can’t he just hand them to Trump and Trump hand them to the public? Screw the procedures and protocols. Let Rosenstein then go sue the President for exercising plainly Constitutional powers. With full disclosure out there that proves the scale of corruption–including his own–he will be totally exposed, and his lawsuit would be a joke.

    American patriots don’t have the patience for another lawyered-up, mealy-mouthed IG report. They didn’t vote for Michael Horowitz to MAGA. The need is for Trump to clean house with a vengeance; anything short of that–the swamp wins.

      Who would the president make this deal with? Sessions? Rosenstein? Wray? Horowitz? Elected Dems? Mueller? I say don’t trust any of them to keep a deal.


  29. It will come out one way or another. Trump goes for the biggest impact.
    You wont see the final episode of The Apprentice on a Monday morning 4AM.

    This is all designed to fill the whole October with revelation after revelation.
    We already had so many drip drops and teasers building up to this season finale..

    We would like to have watched it all a year ago but it wouldn’t be anywhere near the impact we are about to experience.

    Well, I can understand the power of leverage. But if POTUS doesn’t start to get some of the things he wants (Border Wall, immigration enforcement passed, China and CoC quit lobbying against his trade policies, getting Kavanaugh through smoothly), I don’t see the point of it. If we start to see some giving in on those before the mid-terms, he will have made a brilliant leverage play.

      If I suddenly see the Kavanaugh vote succeed this week with a couple of dims supporting, and more money is abruptly appropriated for the wall, then I’ll believe PDJT’s leverage over the gang of eight is as advertised and has born fruit. Until then, I remain skeptical that this move is sound strategy.

    Sorry to say my government is up to their necks in this subterfuge… per usual !!!
    If Trump doesn’t act after the mid terms then they have won.
    All they have to do is tread water until he leaves office and then it is back to business as usual in the USA….criminals have to walked out , tried and imprisoned with long sentences for anything to change in DC, their is no alternative, otherwise as said, they win.

      The threat of exposure has a different type of leverage.

      As soon as everything is “OUT” they go on defense. Trump has it all. He has the deal breaker to implode Muellah’s witch hunt which is based on a false predicate.

    I think he will wait until Kavanaugh is confirmed, give it a few more days and then BOOM!

    At least, this is what I am hoping for.

    If he waits longer than that, the Deep State narrative will be spun “6 ways to Sunday” before it all comes out – as evidenced by the NYTimes article about RR.

    High stakes, no one, no one, has more to lose, than President Trump. He is in the line of fire and if he says he is not going to shoot till he sees the whites of their eyes, so be it. By giving up so much and placing himself and his family in unimaginable danger he gets to make the ultimate decisions because he has made the ultimate sacrifices. He absolutely needs to know who he can trust and who will put a knife in his ribs if they get close and a chance. They targeted his family. They were really after Don Jr. with the tower meeting .

    I want it over but no one wants it over faster than President Trump.

    Is the Swamp trying to goad Trump into firing Rosenstein in lieu of this “deal” Trump and Rosenstein & co. reached?

    • Jim in TN says:

      Food for thought.

      With the caveat that management has to be able to fire employees, What does having a reputation for firing people imply about one’s hiring skills?

      Does it mean that he trusts the wrong people? Or isn’t a good judge of people he doesn’t know? Does he give too much benefit of the doubt? Or maybe he knows the people he hires can succeed, but not all of them will rise to his expectations?

      But as president, he had to hire thousands of people in just a few weeks. And many have to come from the deep state just to be qualified for the job.

      And when Rinse and Repeatus from the RNC helped him win and agreed to be his chief of staff, should he trust his advice in hiring? Or Bannon’s advise? Or the Possum’s advice?

      Seems to me that creeps like Cohen have a way of getting inside Trump’s trust. Manafort was recommended by a billionaire friend. Bannon, Sessions, Priebus were all supporters who delivered. Why shouldn’t he take their advice and use them in his admin?

      And politics played a part. He has worked hard to keep in the Ryno’s and the Turtle’s good graces. Even employed the Turtle’s wife.

      But look at all the great picks too. He may have had to go through a bad chief of staff before he found a great one. But so many of his picks are great from the start.

      So ponder away. But be sure to admire the greatness of some picks and the skill in getting rid of some failures.


  43. icthematrix says:

    Agree with those who are completely sick of the games. I HOPE this is all about leverage, but, we’ve seen how leverage gets twisted back into another game of delay, obfuscate, manipulate the narrative via the media hordes and gain ground back. Reference…current Brett drama.

    Once Kavanaugh is on the court, it is time for action, with no quarter given. Time is needed for the facts and proper narrative to be absorbed prior to elections, which START with early voting weeks ahead of Election Day. It is GO TIME! If it doesn’t happen, I will be convinced that our President has been blackmailed or neutered by the machine.

    Already seeing the results, that CNN article on Brit intel is a direct result of his comments last night on “allies”. The conspirators themselves are liable to tell us things we dont know even know.

    3. Win the Midterms
    4. Declassify the rest and Fire at Will! (pun intended)
