President Trump teased the full declassification of the FISA warrant used to spy on his campaign, a move that will more than embarrass Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who serves as acting attorney general for all things Russia.
“The Deep State and the Left, and their vehicle, the Fake News Media, are going Crazy – & they don’t know what to do,” President Trump tweeted Thursday morning. “The Economy is booming like never before, Jobs are at Historic Highs, soon TWO Supreme Court Justices & maybe Declassification to find Additional Corruption. Wow!”

The Trump Administration is pushing back hard on disputed claims in a recent book written by Bob Woodward, which was used as timing for an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times by someone claiming to be a “top official” in the White House.
The timing of both are curiously in line with other recent leaks and subversions like the op-ed. Revelations of FISA abuse are now routinely met with stories and narratives meant to distract Americans from learning about the government’s actions before, during and after the 2016 presidential election.
The Justice Department (DOJ) previously released documents used to justify the FISA warrant application to spy against Carter Page, a former and peripheral campaign adviser to then-candidate Donald Trump.
The heavily-redacted documents on their own already confirmed crucial and disturbing details of the memo prepared by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and other Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).
That includes the allegation that the DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) relied upon the infamous and discredited dossier put together by former MI6 British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, , identified as Source #1.
The dossier was funded by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the campaign for Hillary Clinton, who hired the shadowy smear firm Fusion GPS, who in turn hired Mr. Steele. The former spy of the Russia desk at MI6 almost exclusively used Kremlin sources to gather the information he then fed to DOJ officials Bruce Ohr.
Mr. Ohr, the former associate attorney general who was twice demoted for trying to hide his contacts with Mr. Steele, was in turn feeding the dossier to Andrew Weissmann, the number two on Democrat-dominated team put together by Special Counsel Robert Mueller III.
But Obama Administration officials never told the FISA court that it was political opposition research. Multiple sources claim the full un-redacted version of the FISA warrant will implicate Mr. Rosenstein.
Joseph DeGenova, a former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, said Wednesday night on “Hannity” that Mr. Rosenstein is under investigation and can no longer sign off on FISA warrants as a result of his role.
While such rumors have been circulating, People’s Pundit Daily (PPD) has not been able to independently confirm the claim. However, the DOJ Office of Inspector General has been investigating wrongdoings at the bureau and department, which does include Mr. Rosenstein’s behavior as acting attorney general.
