Here’s some breaking news: President Trump has authorized all U.S. intelligence agencies to cooperate fully with Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into the origin of the Russian collusion hoax. We’ll include a couple of tweets to show that “spying” and “surveillance” are in scare quotes.

Just in: Trump has directed U.S. intelligence agencies to cooperate with the Justice Department's review of the origins of the Russia investigation (the "spying" probe) and has given AG Barr authority to declassify information as he sees fit.

This should be exciting…….No wonder they are deflecting so hard and in a tizzy for Trumps financials. They are reviewing each line item now to keep Trump in the news and this out of it by giving the media something alternate to report on so they don't have to do their jobs.

It looks like Sen. Dick Blumenthal was first on deck to serve up the Democrats’ talking point:
"It seems much more like an effort to distract with frankly a dull, rusty object, not a bright, shiny one," says Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, reacting to news Pres. Trump has allowed AG Barr to declassify info regarding surveillance activities of his 2016 campaign. pic.twitter.com/a17xBdLnWK

No, it’s bright and it’s shiny — wait until sunlight hits it.
