Memorandum on Declassification of Certain Materials Related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation (415 hits)


LAW & JUSTICE
Issued on: January 19, 2021

MEMORANDUM FOR THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
THE DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE
THE DIRECTOR OF THE CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY

SUBJECT: Declassification of Certain Materials Related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby direct the following:

Section 1. Declassification and Release. At my request, on December 30, 2020, the Department of Justice provided the White House with a binder of materials related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Portions of the documents in the binder have remained classified and have not been released to the Congress or the public. I requested the documents so that a declassification review could be performed and so I could determine to what extent materials in the binder should be released in unclassified form.

I determined that the materials in that binder should be declassified to the maximum extent possible. In response, and as part of the iterative process of the declassification review, under a cover letter dated January 17, 2021, the Federal Bureau of Investigation noted its continuing objection to any further declassification of the materials in the binder and also, on the basis of a review that included Intelligence Community equities, identified the passages that it believed it was most crucial to keep from public disclosure. I have determined to accept the redactions proposed for continued classification by the FBI in that January 17 submission.

I hereby declassify the remaining materials in the binder. This is my final determination under the declassification review and I have directed the Attorney General to implement the redactions proposed in the FBI’s January 17 submission and return to the White House an appropriately redacted copy.

My decision to declassify materials within the binder is subject to the limits identified above and does not extend to materials that must be protected from disclosure pursuant to orders of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and does not require the disclosure of certain personally identifiable information or any other materials that must be protected from disclosure under applicable law. Accordingly, at my direction, the Attorney General has conducted an appropriate review to ensure that materials provided in the binder may be disclosed by the White House in accordance with applicable law.

Sec. 2. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this memorandum shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This memorandum shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This memorandum is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

(d) The Attorney General is authorized and directed to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register.

DONALD J. TRUMP

Can you believe the FBI?

Thursday, August 18th 2022 at 2:28PM
Steve Williams
YES in this case. Do you believe what Trump is saying about the stolen election, was stolen from him?


Friday, August 19th 2022 at 12:35AM
Deacon Ron Gray
The FBI's raid on Trump shows they are corrupt through and through.

Saturday, August 20th 2022 at 3:46AM
Steve Williams
Don’t run from me again Steve, the question was: Do you believe what Trump is saying about the stolen election, was stolen from him?



Saturday, August 20th 2022 at 4:16AM
Deacon Ron Gray
I know what the question was Ron.

Saturday, August 20th 2022 at 4:57AM
Steve Williams
Well, answer the question Steve!!! Do you believe what Trump said about a stolen election?


Saturday, August 20th 2022 at 9:06AM
Deacon Ron Gray
I answered your question Ron, look it up.

Saturday, August 20th 2022 at 1:13PM
Steve Williams
I am sorry Steve, what was it you said about believing what Trump said about the election was stolen from him?


Sunday, August 21st 2022 at 11:03PM
Deacon Ron Gray
I've told you too many times Ron. So far Chuck Todd hasn't said a word about the illegal raid on Trump, this week on Meet the Press.

Monday, August 22nd 2022 at 4:43AM
Steve Williams
Tell it to me again.


Monday, August 22nd 2022 at 9:34AM
Deacon Ron Gray
We can talk about the undeserved attacks on Trump Ron.

The Fake News Media has badly soiled Liz Cheney, who has just suffered the biggest defeat of a sitting Congressperson in history (broke the record of another Impeacher, Tom Rice of South Carolina!), losing by 40 points, all over the place doing interviews that nobody wants to hear. No wonder their ratings are sooo BAD. Her record setting horrible results were a referendum on the Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs, of which she is definitely one! Amazing how they keep her on the air?

Monday, August 22nd 2022 at 12:29PM
Steve Williams
The reason why you can tell me or nobody here on Black In America how the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen from Trump is because you have been bamboozled by TRUMP and now that you know for a fact, that TRUMP had lied to you and all of his supporters, now you are too shameful to admit in public that you were taken for a ride.

Steve, get off the TRUMP wagon, heal yourself because you've been through a lot, with those repeated LIES of Trump's.

Rest yourself Steve from those LIES you think you want to here from TRUMP.



Monday, August 22nd 2022 at 4:24PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Keep dreaming Ron. I'm proud as ever of President Trump.

Speaking of lies, Biden knew all about the raid on Mar-a-Lago before it happened. He gave the go ahead to the FBI.

Tuesday, August 23rd 2022 at 7:13AM
Steve Williams

Prove it Steve, Where is that evidence? Now On the act of lying, is just what you will do for that man, right Steve?


Tuesday, August 23rd 2022 at 8:58AM
Deacon Ron Gray
You wouldn't have heard of it, of course Ron. because you only get half "the news."

Biden White House facilitated DOJ's criminal probe against Trump, scuttled privilege claims: memos

Long before it professed no prior knowledge of the raid on Donald Trump's estate, the Biden White House worked directly with the Justice Department and National Archives to instigate the criminal probe into alleged mishandling of documents, allowing the FBI to review evidence retrieved from Mar-a-Lago this spring and eliminating the 45th president's claims to executive privilege, according to contemporaneous government documents reviewed by Just the News.

"The Counsel to the President has informed me that, in light of the particular circumstances presented here, President Biden defers to my determination, in consultation with the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel, regarding whether or not I should uphold the former President's purported 'protective assertion of executive privilege,'" Wall wrote. "... I have therefore decided not to honor the former President's 'protective' claim of privilege."

Tuesday, August 23rd 2022 at 3:21PM
Steve Williams
Don't run from this question Steve, bring your act back here and answer the question: Do you believe what Trump said about a stolen election?


Tuesday, August 23rd 2022 at 4:57PM
Deacon Ron Gray
I proved what you asked me to Ron. Biden lies just like any other politician.


Tuesday, August 23rd 2022 at 5:03PM
Steve Williams
Biden is NOT what I ask you about. Steve, Do you believe what Trump said about the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen from him?

Watch Karine Jean-Pierre lie her ass off at 6:35 in this video Ron, in case you missed it.

You won't hear anything on MSNBC about Biden's part in the raid, so I'm not surprised you don't want to talk about it either Ron.

Tuesday, August 23rd 2022 at 6:32PM
Steve Williams
Steve, why did Trump declassify Top secret material information, which was clearly marked "TOP SECRET" including sensitive Compartmented information and Special Access Program materials?

Why would Trump take that kind of information away from the security of the federal government?

I heard today, that maybe he thought Trump would sell our information to the highest bidder, our enemies.

You remember when Trump brought Puttin buddies into the White House, don't you?


Tuesday, August 23rd 2022 at 7:17PM
Deacon Ron Gray
The letters between President Trump and Kim Jong-un belong to Trump, whatever their classification.

Tuesday, August 23rd 2022 at 8:18PM
Steve Williams
I asked you three questions and you cannot Address none of them, WOW!!!


Tuesday, August 23rd 2022 at 8:41PM
Deacon Ron Gray
I only see two questions Ron, and they've both been answered.

Prove it Steve, Where is that evidence? Now On the act of lying, is just what you will do for that man, right Steve?

If you only see two questions then put on your Glasses and if you got them on, then you need to get in eye examination because you need help!

Now let’s try this again;

Steve, why did Trump declassify Top secret material information, which was clearly marked "TOP SECRET" including sensitive Compartmented information and Special Access Program materials?

Why would Trump take that kind of information away from the security of the federal government?

I heard today, that maybe he thought Trump would sell our information to the highest bidder, our enemies.

You remember when Trump brought Puttin buddies into the White House, don't you?


I want you to update your answers.


Tuesday, August 23rd 2022 at 11:46PM
Deacon Ron Gray
You make a lot of assumptions Ron. Do you know anything about the Presidential Records Act?

Wednesday, August 24th 2022 at 4:14AM
Steve Williams
Steve, do you see those three questions, lets start with this question:

1. Steve, why did Trump declassify Top secret material information, which was clearly marked "TOP SECRET" including sensitive Compartmented information and Special Access Program materials?

Wednesday, August 24th 2022 at 8:42AM
Deacon Ron Gray
Has anybody seen Steve?



Wednesday, August 24th 2022 at 7:09PM
Deacon Ron Gray
1. Ask Trump.

Ron, did you know the Presidential Records Act, in Trump's case supercedes the three statutes referenced in the search warrant?

Wednesday, August 24th 2022 at 7:21PM
Steve Williams
So I see you are NOT going to give any time to this question: 1. Steve, why did Trump declassify Top secret material information, which was clearly marked "TOP SECRET" including sensitive Compartmented information and Special Access Program materials?

OK, let's try this one: 2. Why would Trump take that kind of information away from the security of the federal government, in the first place?


Wednesday, August 24th 2022 at 7:31PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Ron, what did the "TOP SECRET" including sensitive Compartmented information and Special Access Program materials say?

Wednesday, August 24th 2022 at 8:15PM
Steve Williams
Steve, I don’t know. Now back to my question: 2. Why would Trump take that kind of information away from the security of the federal government, in the first place?


Wednesday, August 24th 2022 at 9:15PM
Deacon Ron Gray
2. It was his?


Wednesday, August 24th 2022 at 10:50PM
Steve Williams
YOUR ANSWER: 2. It was his?

MY REPLY: Classify and Top Secret Material was his is BULL💩!!! And you know it.

QUESTION: What do you think what would happen to you, if you took TOP SECRET and highly classified material from government grounds and you made that claim.

What do you think what would happen to you, Steve?


Thursday, August 25th 2022 at 5:02AM
Deacon Ron Gray
The President can classify and declassify any of those materials. How do you know he didn't Ron? How do you know the classification of the Kim Jong-un letters to begin with? You don't Ron.

Thursday, August 25th 2022 at 8:30AM
Steve Williams
There is the paperwork Steve? THERE IS NONE, Steve because Trump was not looking to get caught RED HEADED. WOW!!!

By the way Steve, It was you who first thought that the FBI had raided mar a logo without cause, to find out TRUMP has LIED and there was cause, The FBI has been asking TRUMP for months for those other files they found at his ranch.


Thursday, August 25th 2022 at 5:43PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Ron, your paperwork fetish shows how little you value the Presidency.

Thursday, August 25th 2022 at 9:11PM
Steve Williams
How do you think THE FBI Convince the judge to give them a warrant to search Trumps ranch, it’s because they did the paper work first.

That is how it’s done, Steve. A Step by step process that stops the lies.


Friday, August 26th 2022 at 1:33AM
Deacon Ron Gray
Ron, that's the way our country is teetering on the brink of complete collapse. You've done a grave disservice to the office of the President when you put NARA above him. That's the crux of the matter - you value the FBI and NARA more than President Trump. If you destroy Trump you destroy Biden and America too.

Friday, August 26th 2022 at 3:33PM
Steve Williams
Ok… Steve Do you still believe that The 2020 Presidential election was stolen from Trump?


Friday, August 26th 2022 at 6:43PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Trump will win back the Presidency in 2024. Indict him Ron, and he will win that much bigger.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations special agent who sought a search warrant of former President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago acknowledged in his affidavit a Breitbart News article laying out the Trump team’s defense.

The May 5, 2022, Breitbart News article featured an interview with former Trump Pentagon Chief of Staff Kash Patel, who said a report claiming classified materials were found at Mar-a-Lago is misleading and that then-President Trump had already declassified the materials, but the markings had not yet been updated.

“Trump declassified whole sets of materials in anticipation of leaving government that he thought the American public should have the right to read themselves,” Patel had told Breitbart News in a phone interview back in May, long before the FBI’s raid.

“The White House counsel failed to generate the paperwork to change the classification markings, but that doesn’t mean the information wasn’t declassified,” Patel told Breitbart News. “I was there with President Trump when he said, ‘We are declassifying this information.’”

Patel told Breitbart News that the material was information that Trump “felt spoke to matters regarding everything from Russiagate to the Ukraine impeachment fiasco to major national security matters of great public importance — anything the president felt the American people had a right to know is in there and more.”

Patel is also a former prosecutor, former public defender, former principal deputy to the acting director of national intelligence, former National Security Council aide, and former top House Intelligence Committee staffer who would be well-versed in classification matters.

The FBI special agent wrote in the affidavit:

I am aware of an at1icle published in Breitbart on May 5, 2022, available at https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/05... which states that Kash Patel, who is described as a former top FPOTUS administration official, characterized as ”misleading” repo11s in other news organizations that NARA had found classified materials among records that FPOTUS provided to NARA from Mar-a-Lago. Patel alleged that such repot1s were misleading because FPOTUS had declassified the materials at issue.

Patel has since reiterated his remarks in recent interviews, after a judge granted a search warrant and the FBI raided Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago for the documents.

Maloney, chair of the House Oversight Committee, had asked NARA if there was classified information within 15 boxes that it recovered from Mar-a-Lago. NARA responded in a February 18, 2022, letter: “NARA has identified items marked as classified national security information within the boxes.”

Patel called the story “disinformation.”

“The story says the National Archives found the documents had classification markings on them. That doesn’t mean that they were not declassified. All previously classified documents have classification markings on them, it shows they used to be classified. It’s petty bureaucracy at its finest, government simpletons not following a president’s orders to have them marked ‘declassified.’ The president has unilateral authority to declassify documents — anything in government. He exercised it here in full,” he said.

“[For] NBC to make a leap to say, ‘Well that means he released classified information,’ is completely false,” Patel said. “So I think the article is entirely misleading.”

Where is Trumps paper from telling The U.S. Government that the top secret and highly sensitive material was declassified?

That would tell me and the American people when did this Declassified material to place.

No paperwork, no declassification.

Saturday, August 27th 2022 at 3:22AM
Deacon Ron Gray
Ron, Trump had complete autonomy when he declassified the documents. His lawyers were responsible for marking the documents as declassified and they failed to do it, but Trump was NEVER subject to any paperwork requirement for declassification.

Saturday, August 27th 2022 at 7:01AM
Steve Williams
If Trumps lawyers failed in there duties, then it was not recorded or recognized by The U. S. Government. Now if you have no, you don’t have 💩 Steve and you know that, don’t you?


Saturday, August 27th 2022 at 9:19AM
Deacon Ron Gray
Wrong Ron. Trump will kick your ass again, like he did Mueller and two Congressional impeachment hit squads. Why? Because good always triumphs over evil.

Saturday, August 27th 2022 at 11:36AM

What about Biden?

Good Question:

Steve, hears 5 good things Biden has done for all of us

President Biden and his administration have made a number of positive changes for our nation https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/good-thing...

You need to read these high point from FOX NEWS about "5 good things Biden has done for all of us."


Tuesday, August 30th 2022 at 4:42PM
Deacon Ron Gray
I don't need to read these "five good things" FOX NEWS thinks Biden has done for all of us Ron. Obviously, they are not your own thoughts. I could tell you five bad things Biden has done against all of us, off the top of my head. Instead, I'll tell you one good thing Trump has done for all of us. He proved that we were taught truthfully that in America, anyone can grow up to be President. It's like the second coming of George Washington.
