The Department of Justice has become nothing more than an arm of the Democrat Party.
For years it’s been speculated that they worked with operatives on the Left to try and destroy Donald Trump’s presidency.
And now this leaked memo proves the DOJ was actively working to take down the former president.
We now know that the Department of Justice worked diligently to try and bring down Donald Trump.
In fact, we know they worked with Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and others to try and stop Donald Trump from even becoming President.
To actively take on a presidential campaign and then a sitting U.S. president shows that the DOJ has really gone off the rails.
And now a leaked memo shows the DOJ flat out ignored a direct order from Donald Trump while he was president.
The U.S. Justice Department, near the end of Trump’s term, raised “privacy concerns” to stop the release of hundreds of pages of documents that Donald Trump had ordered declassified.
These documents would allegedly expose a myriad of FBI abuses during the Russia collusion probe.
After the “privacy concerns” Trump ordered them released with the proper redactions made to appease the agency’s concerns.
The DOJ told Trump no.
This previously untold story of how the declassified material never became public is contained in a memo obtained by Just the News.
The memo, written by White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, confirmed that Trump declassified hundreds of pages of FBI documents showing how the bureau used informants and FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and misled both a federal court and Congress to get approval for the investigation.
In the end of course, multiple investigations found there was no collusion and the FBI violated rules and misled the FISA court in an effort to keep the investigation into Trump going.
The documents that Trump declassified never were released, even though they were lawfully declassified and the DOJ was ordered by the president to release them after redacting private information.
In an interview on the Just the News, Not Noise television show, Meadows said he was dismayed that the DOJ ignored a lawful instruction from a sitting president.
“Well, you know, the swamp is pretty deep,” Meadows said. “But when we look at this, this particular president was all about draining the swamp, you know, and when he was running, that was more of a campaign slogan. When he got there, he realized that not only was the swamp very deep, but they would fight back.”
And Liz Harrington, Trump’s spokeswoman, told Just the News that the DOJ’s decision to hide the documents just continued the political abuse inside an agency that is supposed to be above politics.
“For four years they lied, leaked, spied on, and smeared President Trump in their attempts to defy the will of the people,” she said. “This is further proof of the depths they will go to hide their corruption. It is far past time for transparency of one of the biggest political scandals in American history.”
According to Mark Meadows, if the documents are finally released, they will not only fully vindicate Donald Trump they will also show compelling evidence that Democrats and FBI officials actually knew what they were saying was untrue.
