Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified more documents related to failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's alleged plan to stir-up a scandal between then-candidate Donald Trump and Russia. It turns out former CIA Director John Brennan told President Barack Obama about the idea before the 2016 election as “a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.” Brennan's notes indicate Hillary approved of the plan on July 26, 2016. Trump also authorized the "declassification of any & all documents" related to the "Russia Hoax."

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified three items in regard to the FBI's investigation into Hurricane Crossfire to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham.

The email was mostly public previously, though supposedly classified portions were redacted.

The report of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign was as expected.

The Department of Justice Inspector General released his long-awaited report into former FBI director James Comey's handling of sensitive investigative information and the way he handled certain memos.

However, the IG "concluded that Comey’s retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement."

Former Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein and former FBI Director James Comey have ventured into a public spat over President Donald Trump and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian collusion. Comey wrote earlier this month that Rosenstein did not have the strength to "resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump." Rosenstein lashed out at Comey for becoming a "partisan pundit" and showed disgust that the former director would speculate "about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul."

Outgoing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is no friend to President Donald Trump, criticized President Barack Obama's administration over its handling of Russia hacking in 2016 and called out former FBI Director James Comey at the Public Servants Dinner of the Armenian Bar Association.

“The FBI disclosed classified evidence about the investigation to ranking legislators and their staffers,” he said. “Someone selectively leaked details to the news media. The FBI director [Comey] announced at a congressional hearing that there was a counterintelligence investigation that might result in criminal charges. Then the former FBI director alleged that the president pressured him to close the investigation, and the president denied that the conversation occurred.
