Recently, ex-M.I.6 Moscow field agent and ex-head of M.I.6’s Russia desk, Christopher Steele released a document that alleges, among other things, that the Russian government has “been cultivating, supporting, and assisting” Donald Trump for a long time and have sufficient information in order to be able to blackmail him.
Ron DeSantis, Congressman from Florida’s 6th District, is asking for the declassification of documents related to the FISA application that resulted in permission of such surveillance the then-Presidential candidate’s associates.
DeSantis said: “We now know that the so-called Steele dossier was paid for by the Democratic Party in an effort to gin up negative information regarding then-candidate Trump. What the American people deserve to know is whether the information compiled by Steele on the Democrats’ dime was used by the Obama administration to obtain approval to conduct surveillance against Trump associates. The FBI has stonewalled producing these documents for months and their production shouldn’t be limited to closed door viewing by a small number of members of Congress. The Trump administration should immediately declassify all the documents used to obtain surveillance warrants against Trump or his associates.”
