Do you remember how President Trump declassified documents related to surveillance of his campaign and of his administration once he became President? 

Well, those are likely the documents that Trump took home with him. And that the FBI are like after in their invasion of his home.

From The Conservative Treehouse:

The totality of those 302 documents is a lot of evidence likely consisting of hundreds of pages.

For the government officials on the inside, in addition to 302’s (ex Bruce Ohr) there would be documents of communication between them.

Think about the full unredacted text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok as an example.  The DOJ publicly released over 600 pages of those text messages, and that wasn’t all of them.  The text messages were also redacted, under claims of privacy and national security.  We can assume any version of these text messages declassified by President Trump would not be redacted.  Hence, you go back to the January 20th memo and see the notes about “privacy.”

We also know there are many pages of communication between DOJ lawyer Lisa Page and her boss in the FBI Andrew McCabe.  Almost none of them were ever made public; but they exist.  This internal communication is likely the type of material contained in both the “binder,” left for the DOJ to release, and the boxes at Mar-a-Lago to be used as evidence against the named defendants in the lawsuit.

Bruce Ohr has 302’s and emails relating to his involvement as a conduit between Fusion GPS and the FBI.  Some of those were released in redacted form, and some of them were never released.  Additionally, Nellie Ohr, Bruce’s wife, who worked at Fusion GPS invoked spousal privilege when called to testify before the House committee investigating the issues.  However, it is almost certain the FBI interviewed her so there are likely 302’s on Nellie Ohr.

Chris Steele, Igor Danchenko and Rodney Joffe were also interviewed by the FBI.  Those 302’s were never released.  Presumably John Durham has stakeholder equity in that part of the Trump-Russia hoax, but the documentary evidence prior to January 20, 2021, that exists outside the special counsel could also be records at Mar-a-Lago.

Then we get to the big stuff…. The records and evidence in unredacted and declassified state, that would drive the DOJ-NSD to claim vital national security interests.

The NSA compliance officer notified NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers of unauthorized use of the NSA database by FBI contractors searching U.S. citizens during the 2015/2016 presidential primary.  That 2016 notification is a classified record.

The response from Mike Rogers, and the subsequent documentary evidence of what names were being searched is again a classified record.  The audit logs showing who was doing the searches (which contractors, which agencies and from what offices), as noted by Director Rogers, was preserved.  That is another big-time classified record.

In addition, we would have Admiral Rogers writing a mandatory oversight notification to the FISA court detailing what happened.  That’s a big and comprehensive classified record, likely contained in the documents in Mar-a-Lago… and then the goldmine, the fully unredacted 99-page FISA court opinion detailing the substance of the NSA compromise by FBI officials and contractors, including the names, frequency and dates of the illegal surveillance.  That is a major classified document the Deepest Deep State would want to keep hidden.

These are the types of documents within what former ODNI John Ratcliffe called “thousands of pages that were declassified by President Trump,” and given to both John Durham and Main Justice with an expectation of public release when the Durham special counsel probe concluded.

In short, President Trump declassified documents that show how the institutions within the U.S. government targeted him.  However, the institutions that illegally targeted President Trump are the same institutions who control the specific evidence of their unlawful targeting.

A ransack warrant. There was no need to take his passports. The government has the information on file. It also seems an intimidation tactic. I still have my brown passport (level between blue and red diplomatic) that I was issued to travel to Ghana with the USNR. It is expired. There is no need for the government to take it. Why were two expired passports of Trump taken?

I remain in the category of loss of trust because trust has been breached too many times. Unable to believe and invest in government spin after COVID... CRT... transgenderism push against the ordinary and decent citizen. There is a paucity of truth.

Who took my country? I want it back.

"given to ... John Durham ... with an expectation of public release when the Durham special counsel probe concluded."

Which is why the Durham probe drags on, no end in sight, no report.

Which is why Barr made sure to give Durham "special counsel" status before he left the DOJ. To make sure a change in control of Congress two years hence could assert no power over Durham.

Which is why Trump wanted custody of the documentation so the Deep State couldn't "lose it" permanently.

We have few friends in DC.

I believe they have clearly told us they don't want us to trust them, that we are their enemies.

J.E. Dyer, the Optimistic Conservative is a former Navy intel officer & seems to have a background that would suggest she’s knowledgeable about the x’s, y’s and unknowns of classification practices of documents.

There is an in-the-weeks discussion of the classification procedures, but my interest is in the last part of the post, a discussion of what has been actually been going on in the Trump v. Clinton law suit and how that is related or is probably related to the raid on Mar-a-Lago.

It’s very much worth your time.
