President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday night that he has “authorized” the declassification of “all” documents related to the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
“I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!” Trump tweeted.
