Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe argued in favor of releasing the underlying affidavit for the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago last week.

The Trump-era spy chief made the case Monday night during an appearance on Fox News, not going as far as former President Donald Trump’s call for the “completely unredacted” release of the affidavit, but rejecting an argument made by the Justice Department against unsealing it even with redactions.

The article goes on to state the following:

“It’s garbage to say that that information couldn’t be redacted so that the remainder of the affidavit that is so important to establishing probable cause is something that we can see,” Ratcliffe told host Laura Ingraham.

The DOJ said Monday, “The fact that this investigation implicates highly classified materials further underscores the need to protect the integrity of the investigation and exacerbates the potential for harm if information is disclosed to the public prematurely or improperly.”

They continued, “The government has carefully considered whether the affidavit can be released subject to redactions. The redactions necessary to mitigate harms to the integrity of the investigation would be so extensive as to render the remaining unsealed text devoid of meaningful content, and the release of such a redacted version would not serve any public interest.”

  1. Trump has probably declassified more documents than any other president. He does not want WE THE PEOPLE in the dark. The corrupt deep state does always try and keep us in the dark where they can work their corrupt deeds and hide behind the excuse that it is “too sensitive” for us to see. BS!

  2. So immediately catastrophic to our national safety that it took them a year and a half to pull it off. Botched it up at that! Talk about incompetent and and inept corrupt useful idiots….
    Daylight is still the best disinfectant!
    Truth will prevail eventually. God sees all and is final Judge.🙏🇺🇸🙏
