President Trump has full authority to declassify the documents regarding the origins of the Russia probe.

Today, he announced in a pair of tweets that the DOJ agreed and will be releasing them. (MORE BELOW.)

President Trump has asked Inspector General, Michael Horowitz to review the documents before releasing them.

“I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents,” President Trump said.

Additionally, he continued, “They agreed to release them but stated that so doing may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe. Also, key Allies’ called to ask not to release.

Therefore, the Inspector General has been asked to review these documents on an expedited basis. I believe he will move quickly on this (and hopefully other things which he is looking at),” President Trump said.

In the end I can always declassify if it proves necessary. Speed is very important to me – and everyone!” President Trump ended. (MORE BELOW.)

Reactions by Congressmen Nunes and Biggs.

Congressmen Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Andy Biggs (R-AZ) both would like to see the documents declassified straight up.

Furthermore, neither of them are opposed to using the contempt charge that Congress has over the Department of Justice.

In a live Fox New interview, Congressman Biggs said, “Well, Devin is right to be frustrated because it has been a continual slow walk.” (MORE BELOW.)

Specifically, Biggs said that the Inspector General is not where they would like to see this because the Inspector General has also been stonewalled by the DOJ.

We might actually have to get back to the enforcement policy – like CONTEMPT – that Congress has over the DOJ,” the Arizona Congressman said.

In ending, the documents are still not transparent to us. Would you like to see them?
