President Donald Trump has moved to immediately declassify 20 pages of the surveillance application that authorized the FBI to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

The article goes on to state the following:

Trump also directed the Justice Department to publicly release all text messages “relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction” of Ohr, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

According to the Washington Examiner, the “demand for declassification” was announced by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a statement.

Sanders added that Trump has also instructed the Justice Department “to publicly release all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr,” CNN reports.
