US President Donald Trump reportedly declassified and authorized the release of “more than a foot-high stack of documents” related to the Obama administration’s surveillance and espionage committed against the 2016 Trump campaign.
This is obviously a part of a larger campaign to discredit and undermine incoming President Joe Biden.
According to journalist and Trump insider John Solomon, the documents would be released as soon as January 15th, but no later than January 18th.
“He has delivered in a big way. More than a foot-high stack of documents he has authorized to be released by the FBI and the DOJ. These are the things that the FBI has tried to keep from the public for 4 years. They have amazing, big picture revelations,” Solomon told Fox News’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight.”
The release will be supportive of claims that the entire Russia narrative was created and leaked to the news media to upstage concerns over Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
The declassified documents will include depositions, transcripts and interviews, an unnamed US Senate source told Fox News Chief White House Correspondent John Roberts.
They are depositions, transcripts and interviews. There are documents from about a dozen of those coming out. Likely hundreds of pages

Trump and prominent allies have long referred to the Russia investigation as a “hoax” meant to undermine his presidency.
In October 2020, Trump tweeted that he had “fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax.”
“All Russia Hoax Scandal information was declassified by me long ago,” Trump said at the time. “Unfortunately for our Country, people have acted very slowly, especially since it is perhaps the biggest political crime in the history of our Country.”
In 2020, the Senate Intelligence Committee published a five-part report detailing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
In the final part which was published in August 2020 the committee said some of the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russian agents ahead of the 2016 presidential election were a “grave counterintelligence threat.”
It also admitted they “found no evidence” that Trump or members of his campaign colluded with Russia.
As of 16:00 GMT on January 15th there are still no documents released.
