Trump Tweeted About Releasing All “Russia Hoax” Documents, But He Didn’t Mean It Literally


Two tweets by President Donald Trump last week stating he had “fully authorized the total declassification” of all documents related to the Russia investigation should not be taken literally, the Justice Department said in court documents Tuesday. Trump claimed in one tweet that he had ordered the declassification of the “Russia Hoax Scandal” information long ago. But it seems the Justice Department never got the message. The Justice Department was told by the White House counsel that Trump’s “statements on Twitter were not self-executing declassification orders and do not require the declassification of any particular documents.”
