Trump orders intelligence community to cooperate with review on Russia probe origins

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday ordered the intelligence community to cooperate with Attorney General William Barr’s review of the events that prompted the FBI to open an investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Russia.

“Today, at the request and recommendation of the attorney general of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the attorney general’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 presidential election,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said after Trump issued the directive.

The order also allows Barr to declassify any information he sees fit during his review.

Last month, Barr said at a Senate hearing that “spying” on Trump’s campaign was carried out by U.S. intelligence agencies, though he later referred to his concerns as focused on “unauthorized surveillance.”

Barr has assigned a top federal prosecutor in Connecticut to probe the origins of the Russia investigation in what is the third known inquiry into the opening of the FBI probe.

2. The House leadership needs to investigate this too.

Letting the fascist pig and Barr investigate will just let Trump run his narrative.

4. Sounds like he inevitably is investigating himself.

And there's nothing to hide so, bring it on. AND, let's dig deep now and unredact that report for the public BEFORE we start a a counter investigtion. Pretty sure Congress is going to want to know if it's being asked to finance a boondoggle.
unredact the report now. Lets see what's covered up in black, and let the nation decide if the outrage is sufficient to let the executive branch break anything else before he's thrown out of office. Strikes me as such.
unredact, then we'll discuss financing another report. Think of congress as your Daddy don, they don't have to pay for your stupidness. Time to cut you off.
