The President of United State of America, Donald Trump has on Thursday ordered that Attorney General William Barr be handed over the authority to declassify information as part of his investigation into inflammatory claims that U.S. intelligence agencies “spied” on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.
“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 press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders revealed in a statement. “Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election.”
Sanders noted that Trump had also granted “full and complete authority” to Barr to declassify any information necessary related to his investigation into the claim.
