In a shocking letter intended to undermine President Trump, and his authority over the Executive Branch, multiple high ranking Democrats sent a letter ordering intelligence agencies to ignore Trump’s order to declassify numerous documents involving the Russia investigation until consulting with Congress.
The intelligence agencies serve at the pleasure of the president — and this clearly crosses the line separating the branches of government.
The letter was signed by Rep. Adam Schiff, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Senator Mark Warner, and Senator Charles Schumer and sent to Director Coats, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and Director Wray.
What is even more shocking than this deliberate attempt to skirt the rule of law and the US Constitution is the admission by Democrat leaders that Democrats are cutting deals with top Trump intelligence officials behind the president’s back.
That third paragraph is particularly interesting: …”the verbal assurance you provided us that DOJ and FBI would not provide the White House“…
Why would the Trump DOJ and FBI be giving Pelosi Inc. “assurances” of their intent to withhold intelligence from the White House (Office of the President).
Why would Rosenstein and Wray be giving “assurances”? I digress.
