    Among many, this appears to be another impeachable offense when it comes to abuse of power and national security issues. Yet of course tRump's fellow antigovernment conspiring GOPer cronies are all for it at being as treasonous as tRump is.

    Trump has ordered the intelligence community to "provide for the immediate declassification" of several documents related to the FBI and the Department of Justice, the White House press secretary announced Monday. Source: National Public Radio, Inc.

    I don't see how phony fabricated documents can be classified and turned into matters of "national security." The only reason they are redacted is to cover their criminal activities. Trump needs to bring down the hammer.

    Read and learn.

    "The majority ruling in the 1988 Supreme Court case Department of Navy vs. Egan -- which addressed the legal recourse of a Navy employee who had been denied a security clearance -- addresses this line of authority.

    "The President, after all, is the ‘Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States’" according to Article II of the Constitution, the court’s majority wrote. "His authority to classify and control access to information bearing on national security ... flows primarily from this constitutional investment of power in the President, and exists quite apart from any explicit congressional grant."

    Steven Aftergood, director of the Federation of American Scientists Project on Government Secrecy, said that such authority gives the president the authority to "classify and declassify at will."

    Do presidents have 'the ability to declassify anything'?
