    Trump needs to declassify all these documents. No black-outs. No need for FOIA requests. Just declassify the entire lot of them and be done with it.

    The pervasiveness of The Swamp is astounding.

    President Trump can't help but put swampers in charge because that's all there are. Everybody was loving on this woman. Wrong...swamper. How did Wray work out? Sessions? Barr? Mattis? Kelly? I would even question the judgement of his two Supreme Court justices on their adherence to the word of the Constitution instead of precedence. He can declassify this himself, correct?

    I knew that one would come back to bite the Trump admin. Way too entrenched and had to know what was going on with Brennan and Co.

    The CIA Director can give input but cannot block the ODNI from declassifying anything.
    Trump already gave full declassification authority to AG William Barr.

    The NY Post can leak tax returns, how hard can it be?

    F&^K Barr. Can't the President do it himself?

    Yes he can. He doesn't lose the ability to do so because he empowered Barr. He effectively gave Barr permission to disclose everything.

    I didn't mean to imply that giving the authority to Barr meant he couldn't. Barr will never do anything to endanger the swamp. The President needs to do this himself if he wants action

    Pompeo and Grenell don’t seem to be swamp creatures, but Haspel and Wray sure are. My vote still isn’t in regarding Bill Barr. I would expect Haspel and Wray's employment tenure to not last long into November.

    IMHO
