After the New York Times published an anonymous op-ed alleging that a there is a group of “resisters” within the White House is actively subverting President Trump, the Commander-in-Chief threatened to declassify documents which might uncover “Additional Corruption.” This comes right as his Republicans on Capitol Hill are calling on him to use his Presidential authority to declassify and release documents related to the DOJ’s Russia probe, Zero Hedge reported.
“The Deep State and the Left, and their vehicle, the Fake News Media, are going Crazy – & they don’t know what to do,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning, adding: “The Economy is booming like never before, Jobs are at Historic Highs, soon TWO Supreme Court Justices & maybe Declassification to find Additional Corruption. Wow!”

Zero Hedge reported:
“In particular, Republican Reps. Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz and Lee Zeldin have asked Trump to declassify more of the heavily redacted FISA surveillance warrant on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page in late 2016. They also want Trump to release all of the official notes filed by twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr, whose cozy relationship with former UK spy Christopher Steele has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks.”
At 12:45PM, I will be joined by @Jim_Jordan @RepMarkMeadows @RepMattGaetz & others to call on @realDonaldTrump to declassify & release the Page FISA apps, Ohr’s 302s & more. The FISA court was misled & the process abused to spy on Americans. We have ZERO tolerance for any of it!

The GOP legislators are also seeking the declassification of “other relevant documents” according to Zeldin’s office.
