On May 4, acting DNI Richard Grenell informed Congress that some 53 transcripts of interviews were declassified, redacted and ready for release. These include interviews with former DNI James Clapper, Loretta Lynch, Samantha Power, Andrew McCabe, Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, and John Podesta. As Fox News reports, none of the 53 witnesses could provide evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia. Intelligence Committee boss Adam Schiff repeatedly claimed he had “direct evidence” of collusion and sought to block release of the transcripts. Those will be a welcome addition to the FBI notes revealing the set-up against President Trump’s National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
