President Trump granting AG Bill Barr authority to declassify information related to the origins of the Russia “collusion” investigation has ironically triggered some of those who had been calling for full transparency in regards to what happened in 2016. Leader of the Hollywood chapter of the anti-Trump Resistance, Rob Reiner, is among them:
Trump has declared all out war on Democracy. Using classified intelligence to destroy his political opponents is Autocracy pure and simple. We are slipping into a dark time in our nation’s history. We must fight hard for our better angels to survive.

Seems full transparency of information is a good thing!!! Too many secrets run our country.

It looks like Reiner used to think that too:

During Obama’s final month as president, Reiner wanted all the cards put on the table, but this was back when he thought he knew what the cards were:
We can't let Putin & DT hijack our democracy. If there was collusion, citizens & electors need to know. Intel must be declassified. #Truth

Reiner was fine with Obama’s people saying what happened, but not Trump’s? Go figure!
