The Derp state tried to keep their malfeasance in the Carter Page surveillance order hidden under the excuse of National Security. To say that attempt was spurious would be kind. They have now abandoned that justification in favor of protecting the Mueller Investigation (which was clearly baseless and groundless and for which no criminal offense has been be cited) by threat of the process charge of hindering prosecution or obstruction of justice.

n court filings last week the Department of Justice deployed what could be the nuclear option in its latest effort to prevent President Trump from declassifying information regarding FISA warrants used to spy on his campaign aide Carter Page: It is claiming that such a move would interfere with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
This is the first time the DOJ has explicitly made this argument implying personal peril for the president, since interference could open Trump to charges of obstruction of justice. Until now, the department has argued that declassifying the documents threatened national security.
In the 178-page court document, DOJ officials said they had “determined that disclosure of redacted information in the Carter Page FISA documents could reasonably be expected to interfere with the pending investigation into Russian election interference.”
That is pure, unadulterated, bovine fecal material of the rankest sort.
