    The Trump folks shouldn’t get their hopes up. If there were really something there, they would have released it long ago.

    That’s a completely pointless and irrelevant response.

    That call will be made after going through what's in the DECLAS documents.

    The way Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Lynch, McCabe et al have been throwing each other under the bus lately, this along with the OIG, Durham, and Barr investigations could get real interesting, real fast....

    Wonder if Barr will coincide the release with the release of the OIG report ...

    Purely from a give them some rope and let them hang themselves standpoint, I would stagger the releases...

    -Declassify the docs, sit back and watch them all throw each other under the bus. More info is gained
    -OIG report is released. More under the bus throwing and more is learned form their reactions and statements
    -Durham's investigation will benefit from the 2 above along with his investigation and he will carry criminal indictment power

    Trump has a piss poor record with these types of releases. Im betting his trend continues with this as well.

    Aside from the substance-less accusations of the biggest liar in presidential history, what possible basis is there to believe that there was any sort of impropriety in this investigation? The answer is that there is none. This is a right-wing pipe dream.

    Trump trying to change the narrative away from him. Whatever (if anything) is in there does not absolve him from his behavior and activities.

    Before drawing a conclusion perhaps you should wait and see what's in the documents.

    Trump has told 10000 lies in 2.5 years. Why on earth should we believe anything he says?

    This is too rich, coming from someone who pretends that all of the damning documented evidence in the Mueller report is just my “opinion.”

    This could end badly for him, if not for Barr. Everyone - even republicans in the house and senate save for a few who love to bang the drum - knows there was Russian interference and that was the start. Pretty simple and basic. Obama told Trump not to hire Flynn, but being that he only hires the best people, had no choice but to ignore Obama and hire him anyways. People are saying Obama didn't do anything, but there was spying going on, it was illegal, but yadda yadda. Trump whines about how long the Mueller investigation went on, but wants to drag this up. It's a tit-for-tat, deflection game with him. Anything to keeps his tax records hidden. Just a guess, those are probably the missing link to all of this. Hell, his own sons bragged about how their wealth comes from Russia, and I'm sure Kushner's come in large part from the Saudis, which is why this admin seems to be in bed with both countries when it actually matters.

    So while I think there's some shady crap going on here - Barr is clearly throwing himself on the proverbial sword for Trump - I really don't care what info is declassified. The public has a right to now about these matters as much as they can, even if its released piece-meal to paint a narrative. Bottom line, there was no "spying" on the Trump campaign, and I guarantee behind the scenes all the conservatives in office know this.
