The dhimmocrats and their flacks (aka the Lame Stream Media) are pushing the narrative that the Trump Administration is preparing to steal the election and will refuse to leave office if defeated. The facts show that this is effectively what they have been up to since the election of 2016.

In mid-2016, the FBI got word that Russian intelligence believed Hillary Clinton’s campaign was planning to frame Donald Trump as colluding with Russia’s Vladimir Putin to hack her computers. Yet somehow, the crack agents never connected the dots when handed the Steele “dossier” commissioned and paid for by the Clinton campaign that claimed Trump was colluding with Putin.
Instead, the Justice Department used that dossier as a pretext to spy on at least Trump aide Carter Page as it investigated the clearly spurious charges. Justice also distorted the facts about Page’s past relations with the CIA to suggest he had a history of working with Russian agents when his actual record involved turning them in. Meanwhile, it buried the fact that Steele’s main source was himself a suspected Russian agent.
Since FISA warrants and investigations are intended to round up intelligence networks and their supporting informants, the Page “investigation” was really an investigation of Trump, his campaign, the Transition Team, and the first seven months of the Trump Administration. Remarkably that un-precedented level of surveillance resulted in the discovery of no criminal conduct.
It is time and past time to hold the authors of this outrage to account.
I endorse “sundance’s” daylight prescription.

Understanding the ordinary process of declassifying documents is a request and authorization to the executive officers and stakeholders of classified information; and understanding the current authorization is is not ordinary because the intelligence community stakeholders are adverse to the interests of the office of the president; here is a process to cut through the chaff and countermeasures.
The background here is that any unilateral declassification request, demand or authorization by President Trump puts him opposition to a variety of corrupt interests.
As a direct result the executive office of the president will be facing legal action, likely from unified democrats and republicans in the legislative branch. With that accepted, here is the most strategic approach.
Essentially, too many of the key players in the Congressional Oversight have too much invested in the “Russian Narrative” or are in danger of prosecution themselves. Pull the pin and let the spoon pop, Mr. President.
