Unnamed allies close to the president told Axios reporters that the president is expected to release the information about the investigation into Mr. Page, a former campaign staffer, as well as Mr. Ohr’s work at the Justice Department.
Specifically, they wanted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act application used to wiretap Mr. Page. The information on Mr. Ohr is related on his activity at the DOJ that Republicans say lead to the creation of the infamous Steele dossier.
“The American public deserves the opportunity to review its content to judge for themselves,” Rep. Jody Hice tweeted after the conference.
Mr. Trump has previously hinted he would declassify these documents. Hours before the Republican press conference on Thursday, the president referenced “maybe declassification to find additional corruption” in a list of reasons that are driving “the deep state and the left” crazy.
