President Trump is forcing deep state transparency in comments made to Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday. The President said now that the Mueller report has been released he will declassify the FBI- and FISA-related documents that kicked off the entire sham investigation into alleged collusion with Russia. Telling Hannity that forcing release before now wouldn’t have been appropriate, he said, “But at the right time, we will be absolutely releasing it. I did the right thing by not doing it so far.” The deep state should be trembling right about now with Trump in the driver’s seat ahead of 2020. This should get fun.

President Donald Trump told Sean Hannity on Wednesday that he will declassify FBI- and FISA-related documents, now that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has concluded.
“I have plans to declassify and release. I have plans to absolutely release,” Trump said, adding that he wanted to declassify documents in 2018 but was told by his lawyers not to do it during the Mueller investigation.
“One of the reasons that my lawyers didn’t want me to do it, they said if I do it, they will call it a form of obstruction, so they will say, oh, you released these documents so we would make all of this information transparent,” Trump said of his lawyers advice, declaring, “But at the right time, we will be absolutely releasing it. I did the right thing by not doing it so far.”
Trump originally was set to declassify multiple documents related to the FBI investigation of his presidential campaign in 2016.
