Late yesterday the DOJ National Security Division (DOJ-NSD) filed another motion in federal court urging Judge Cannon not to allow the special master to review documents they alone determine to be “classified.” [pdf of motion Here]
The DOJ-NSD, officially the Trump targeting division, is frantic that an outside reviewer would be granted access to oversee the DOJ/IC unilateral determinations of the documents, even if…. [watch the goal posts moving now]… those documents were previously declassified by President Trump.
Yes, even if the documents were declassified (they were), the DOJ is apoplectic that someone would be allowed to see them. Their reason?… “sources and methods” might be exposed.
The DOJ-NSD is claiming the Intelligence Community (IC) is the real authority here, not the President of the United States. It is a rather remarkable position to take.
You might even find yourself wondering by what constitutional authority does anyone in the IC bureaucracy determine whether a president’s declassification of documents was legit? The President has the power to declassify; however, according to the position of the DOJ-NSD, the president must defer to them. :::spit::: Hopefully Judge Cannon sees this for what it is.
However, all of that said, the serendipitous revelation of the FBI hiring Christopher Steele’s source, Igor Danchenko, as a Confidential Human Source (CHS) for three years (March 2017 through Oct 2020) helps to explain the current level of the DOJ-NSD apoplexy, in this motion.
Danchenko was labeled by the corrupt FBI as a Confidential Human Source specifically to shield him (and them) from scrutiny that could be applied by any oversight or inquiry. In essence Danchenko became shielded by the same “sources and methods” scheme the DOJ-NSD is now worried about retaining in the Mar-a-Lago documents.
As the DOJ-NSD now moves the goal posts to say, ‘yeah, so what if Trump declassified the documents – we still don’t like it, and he might reveal our sources and methods,’ we begin to get a more fulsome perspective on the reason for the Mar-a-Lago raid.
President Trump declassified the documents showing the corrupt DOJ and FBI targeting operation of him. The corrupt DOJ and FBI went and took back the evidence against them in the Mar-a-Lago raid and now says no one should be allowed to see it.
Everything is becoming increasingly transparent.
Overlay the Durham probe and you discover, the govt people responsible for illegally targeting Trump are the same govt people responsible for investigating the illegal Trump targeting.
We keep watching….
