Trump delays release of Russia probe documents


BINTANGNEWS.com – US President Donald Trump has delayed the release of documents from the federal probe of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Earlier this week Trump ordered the documents to be made public, saying that the declassification would expose “really bad things” at the FBI. Trump’s order raised concerns that sensitive sources and methods could be exposed.

Trump on Friday said the Justice Department’s inspector general – an internal watchdog of the department – has been asked to review these documents “on an expedited basis.”

"In the end I can always declassify if it proves necessary," Trump tweeted. He said “speed is very important to me – and everyone!”

Trump’s presidency has been bewildered by allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether his campaign colluded with Moscow.

The US Justice Department's Special Counsel Robert Mueller is probing whether the Trump election campaign in 2016 colluded with Russian efforts to damage his opponent, Hillary Clinton, and whether Trump has sought to illegally obstruct the investigation.

Trump has denied any collusion by his campaign and has long denounced the Mueller probe as a witch hunt and a hoax. Moscow has also denied any involvement.***
