Pelosi's screw up forces declassification of documents that will cause great harm to Democrats?
It would have happened sooner or later, but Nancy Pelosi's out-of-control behavior—accusing Trump of a cover-up before meeting with him (sheesh), demanding his family stage an intervention (double sheesh), etc.—clearly forced the president finally to issue a memo giving Attorney General Barr authority to declassify the 2016 campaign surveillance documents. (He undoubtedly had it in his hip pocket for a while.)Republicans in Congress who have seen the documents believe they will be devastating for Democrats.
The memo requires all agencies to "promptly provide such assistance and information as the Attorney General may request in connection with that review." That includes the secretaries of State, Treasury, Defense, and Energy as well as, importantly, the director of national intelligence and the director of the CIA.
Result: game changer. The re-election of Donald Trump will be dated from the evening of May 23, 2109. And the supposedly politically-savvy Ms. Pelosi will be marked down as the instigator.
You almost feel sorry for her. The speaker was unable to face down the simple-minded, juvenile leftists in her own caucus and ended up being their lackey, actually even becoming one of them herself. What a sad and pathetic way to finish your career.
So we will be saying good-bye to the obstruction meme. How do you obstruct an investigation that not only came up empty (i. e. no collusion) but is certain to be revealed as a treasonous set-up from the start?
Rep. Mark Meadows said on Wednesday that Democrats are in a panic because "there is information coming that will curl your hair," referring to the expected declassification of key documents related to the Russia investigation.We will have to see how Barr chooses to release them. He could wait to do so in the form of indictments. They also could reflect poorly on President Obama.
During an interview on Fox News, the North Carolina Republican said Democrats, and in particular House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, know that when these documents come out it will be trouble for them.
"There is information coming that will curl your hair. I can tell you that the reason why it is so visceral — the response from the Democrats is so visceral right now — is because they know, they've seen documents. Adam Schiff has seen documents that he knows will actually put the finger pointing back at him and his Democrat colleagues, not the president of the United States," he told host Sean Hannity.
