Ric Grenell Declassifies Wiretapped Flynn-Kislyak Transcripts, and “Other Russia Probe Origination Documents” – Leaves Release Option for Incoming DNI Ratcliffe…

As one of his last actions before leaving his post, former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard “Ric” Grenell has declassified the transcripts of the wiretapped phone conversations between former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Additionally, it appears that Grenell has declassified some of the origination documents from the CIA and U.S. intel community that were manipulated in the assembly of the Intelligence Community Assessment (an aspect of particular importance to USAO John John Durham).  As we suspected Ric Grenell is leaving the decision, and timing for their release to incoming DNI John Ratcliffe.

WASHINGTON DC – Richard Grenell has declassified a new batch of Russia probe documents on his way out as acting director of national intelligence, leaving the decision on whether to make those files public up to newly sworn-in Director John Ratcliffe.

The documents include transcripts of phone calls that then-incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak had in December 2016, during the presidential transition period.

Grenell said publicly last week that he was in the process of declassifying those files, after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., asked that he do so.

Fox News has learned that the declassification review of those transcripts is now complete, and it will be left up to Ratcliffe on whether to release them publicly.

Fox News has learned that Grenell also completed the declassification review of other documents related to the origins of the Russia probe — including one that a senior intelligence official told Fox News was “very significant in understanding how intelligence was manipulated to support launching the Russia investigation.”

The official could not provide further details on that newly declassified document, but said that it will also be up to Ratcliffe to decide whether to make it public. (read more)

If Grenell has declassified the Flynn-Kislyak transcripts, it’s almost certain that he’s declassified ALL THE TRANSCRIPTS – including those the former administration and politicians did not expect he could recover, and did not want to see released.

    Ric Grenell truly a great man. Setting the ball on the tee for Ratcliffe to hit out of the park! I hope Ratcliffe quickly releases everything and we can begin to see how sordid this whole affair has been.

      Unfortunately, for the DOJ-FBI-NSA-CIA-FISAC the Lost 302s are Equivalent to President Nixon 20 Minute Erasure of Watergate Tapes.

      This is why the Former Watergate Prosecutors lack Substance and Honesty and Obamagate is the same as Watergate and even worse since it involves Justice Department and Courts Institutions caught in the Middle with previous Appointments, Employees, and Retired, Resigned and Terminated!

      Along with Obama Administrations Under Oath saw No Russian Collusion nor seized any DNC Computer Servers Data Crime Scenes like the Watergate Tapes later handed over by Court Order?

    Thank you Ric,

    from one patriot to another, I appreciate what you have done FOR YOUR/OUR COUNTRY.

    If I have insulted you, consider this a personal apology and also to those here at CTH who are aware of my former comments. While I cannot change my strongly held views, please understand that this was by no means and in no way shape or form a personal attack.

    Respectfully,

  4. The original Flynn 302 is coming!

    First we screw Wray, then we screw Judge Emmit. After which, dominoes will begin to fall (behind the scenes). Who’s going to lawyer up and strike a deal with Durham first?

    Mm I’m lovin’ it.

      Rush played audio today of James Carville ranting that Jill Stein (Green Party) and General Flynn were Russian agents. Millions of Democrats still believe this.

      It’s possible Sullivan still believes this: he did call Flynn a traitor, in court. Emmet may regard himself as a patriot and a potential martyr.

      Hillary’s loss, to many of them, remains a definitive impossibility.

    i really do not know the process –

    why cant Grenade Grenell release it too?

    1) teeing up Ratcliffe for a homerun
    2) giving Ratcliffe protection leverage for his survival in the DNI (meaning he doesnt release but will if he gets threatened to much)

    i admit the 2nd option looks psychotic. im going to be postiive and think its a friendly gesture to tee up Director Ratcliffe

    Mr. Grennell, Congratulations on yet another job well done!!

    Please do not venture too far from the White House as we are most sure that President Trump has yet another Federal mess for you to clean up.

    I am absolutely in awe of this man, his courage, & his loyalty to Team Trump.

    I have said this before & repeat it again here: Following President Trump’s 2nd term, I do believe that Mr. Grenell would make a very worthy & important successor to President Trump.

    And I also believe that Mr. DeSantis is making very impressive strides towards a Presidential run following Pres Trump’s 2nd term.

    Hey, suddenly the GOP Presidential bench is acquiring some very impressive individuals.

    Gotta love it!!

      Great comment. I’m 100% sure President Trump will have a great candidate groomed to fight the leftists with fire . That person will not only secure President Trump’s legacy, he will add to it in on
      Richard Grenell. I can’t thank you enough for the great job you did for our country. You served with gutts and propose. If you ever get into politics you’ve got my vote.

    Next job for Ric Grenell. Needs no senate confirmation………GOP chairman. Makes sure no funny business goes on.

    While that letter to senator Warner was much needed and I loved it, it pretty much halts any future senate confirmation. Would need at least 60 totally MAGA/KAG senators after the election.
