New batch of FOIAs have dropped thanks to @15poundstogo and @JudicialWatch

Full batch is here: drive.google.com/file/d/1xZ6D3P…
One document that immediately drew attention was this FBI 302.

Not because it is new, but because it has been RECLASSIFIED and redacted as of last Spring.
Here is the version that @jsolomonReports obtained and published on January 20th, 2021.

To reclassify a document is no simple matter.

One explanation for this reclassification that I have seen offered in a few places is that DOJ set Trump up by reclassifying it, knowing that he had a copy.

This is at least partially based on the timing of Trump's back and forth with NARA and DOJ over docs stored at MAL.
I get why pple would jump to that take, but I don't think it holds up.

Here is the timeline of the Trump-NARA-DOJ.

DOJ was already involved before this doc got reclassified.

Source: cnn.com/2022/08/09/pol…
And nowhere, that I have seen, has it been argued by DOJ or NARA that Trump had docs that were reclassified. I think they would have mentioned that in the court filings somewhere by now.
Besides, the President can and DID declassify this document. It was published.

So I do not think this would be the "Gotcha, Orange Man!" trick that a few folks seem to think it would be.
So then, why has this document been reclassified?

Clues and indicators as to why are on and in the document itself.
NSICG = National Security Information
Classification Guide


REASON: 1.4 (C) = intelligence activities (including covert action), intelligence sources or methods, or cryptology

The redactions are for these reasons:

b6 = privacy (names)
b7 = for law enforcement purposes

So, knowing and understanding all of this, lets read the redacted and unredacted versions again.
The doc is referencing Steele and Burrows of Orbis meeting with FBI and apologizing for running to the media with the Dossier.

Steele and Burrows say they did so because they were "riding two horses," one was the FBI and one was their client.
That client, was Hillary Clinton and they chose her.

So, to RECLASSIFY this document, something MUST be going on with either Steele, Burrows, Orbis, HRC, the FBI agents at this meeting, or a combo thereof.

No doubt the Deep State wants Biden gone.

He has failed as a President and as a leader for [them].

It's been disaster after disaster after disaster. They are too numerous to list.

However, I don't think the Special Counsels, any of the three that are running, are...
... by [their] design.

I think [they] are just hoping to use the most recent one, Hur, as a vehicle to get Biden out the door so that one of [their] own can turn things around.

That's right, I think Biden is no longer [theirs].
And I don't believe trying to force him out will work, not quickly anyway.

Before he exits, whether via resignation, the 25th or perhaps even the 2024 election (which is what I lean towards), I think he is going to do as much damage to the D Party & UniParty as possible.

"Charles McGonigal, 54, was accused in a five-count indictment of working for Russian aluminum magnate Oleg Deripaska, who has been under U.S. sanctions since 2018. Sergey Shestakov, a former Russian diplomat turned U.S. citizen who worked as an interpreter for federal courts..."
"...and prosecutors, was also charged in the scheme.

Federal prosecutors allege the pair worked for Deripaska to investigate an unnamed rival Russian oligarch in 2021 in violation of U.S. sanctions and worked to conceal their activity. Shestakov faces an additional charge of..."
"... lying to FBI investigators."

We have a full blown scandal in the White House now.

Make no mistake, President Biden is under investigation by DOJ, who has tasked the US Atty for the Northern Dist. of Illinois, John R. Lausch, Jr to "review documents marked classified" which were found in his Chicago office..
...and now in his home's garage in Delaware.

The FBI is also investigating.

Lausch is a Trump appointee, one of only two remaining Trump appointed US Attorneys.

The other is US Attorney David C. Weiss who is investigating James and Hunter Biden.
Since this story broke, Biden has been speaking by and through the White House lawyer Richard Sauber.

Like a man under legal scrutiny and jeopardy.

Meanwhile, Trump speaks for himself and says whatever he wants.

What a contrast.

Speaks volumes.

I'm trying to figure out if a Vice President can declassify docs.

In this interview, VP Cheney says,

“There is an executive order to that effect,”

He's referring to EO 13292.

h/t: Brian Huggins on TG

EO 13292 was revoked and replaced by EO 13526 in December 2009.

It states that state both President and Vice President have CLASSIFICATION authority.

It makes sense that if you have the power to classify, you also have the power to declassify.

That may not be the case, though. ImageImage
