Ex-White House Aide: Trump’s Declassified Documents Had to Do With ‘Russiagate’

From theepochtimes.com

A former top Department of Defense official, Kash Patel, said the FBI may have taken documents relating to the Russia–Trump collusion investigation.

Amid a tussle between Trump and the National Archives, Patel said in a recent interview that documents that were stored at Mar-a-Lago marked as classified were declassified when he left office. Federal officials will have a difficult time proving that those documents were not declassified, he said.

“The bottom line was he said this information has to get out to the American public,” Patel told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published on Sunday morning. Patel said he did not know what was in the boxes that FBI agents took from Trump’s home.

“It had to do with Russiagate. It had to do with the Hillary email scandal. It had to do with a whole lot of other stuff. And [Trump] said, ‘This is all declassified,’” Patel remarked, challenging a central claim made by the Justice Department that urgent action had to be taken because sensitive material was at risk.

So far, neither the Department of Justice nor the FBI has offered a public explanation about why the FBI agents targeted a former president’s home or what they were looking for. The Epoch Times has contacted the DOJ and FBI for comment.

A warrant and property receipt that were unsealed more than a week ago by U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart showed that agents took 11 boxes of allegedly classified documents, although it’s not clear what those documents entailed. The warrant showed Trump was being probed for possible Espionage Act violations and obstruction of justice.

Republicans, Trump, and some media outlets have called for the DOJ’s affidavit—a legal document that would explain why the agency sought an FBI search warrant—to be released. During a hearing last week, Reinhart ordered the DOJ to submit the affidavit with proposed redactions, which he would then review before he would consider releasing the document to the public.

More Details

Trump posted on Truth Social on Aug. 18 that he declassified a range of documents relating to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation. At the same time, Trump and Patel have said that the former president had a standing declassification order.

“The president is the ultimate classification authority, so if he says it or writes it, it’s declassified,” Patel, who hosts “Kash’s Corner” for EpochTV, told the WSJ.

A day before Trump left office, on Jan. 19, 2021, he issued a memo declassifying Crossfire Hurricane materials, which have still not been made public. The former president highlighted an archived version of the memo on Truth Social last week.

“I determined that the materials in [a Crossfire Hurricane] binder should be declassified to the maximum extent possible. In response, and as part of the iterative process of the declassification review, under a cover letter dated January 17, 2021, the Federal Bureau of Investigation noted its continuing objection to any further declassification of the materials in the binder,” Trump wrote in January 2021.

The former president also said, “I hereby declassify the remaining materials in the binder. This is my final determination under the declassification review and I have directed the Attorney General to implement the redactions proposed in the FBI’s January 17 submission and return to the White House an appropriately redacted copy.”

While the Crossfire Hurricane investigation was launched in July 2016 to investigate claims of Russian interference in the election, special counsel Robert Mueller years later concluded that the investigation found no evidence showing Trump or his campaign coordinated with Moscow to sway the election.

The Crossfire Hurricane probe was based, in part, on a series of notes and memos concocted by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele—known collectively as the “Steele dossier”—while he was performing opposition research for a third party on behalf of the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and Democrats. A number of allegations in his dossier have since been discredited by the FBI and other groups.

It comes as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said the FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort was a “fishing expedition” for the House Jan. 6 committee.

In remarks on his podcast on Aug. 17, Cruz said that the bureau was looking for documents related to the Capitol breach on Jan. 6, 2021. He did not provide any specific evidence for the statement.

“What is really distressing now looking at the warrant and what they were searching for, this was a fishing expedition,” Cruz said on his podcast “Verdict with Ted Cruz.”

“I think it had little to nothing to do with classified documents, what this was about was January 6. What this was about was the FBI and [the Department of Justice] wanting to send in a team to say let’s grab every piece of paper we can find and maybe we’ll get something incriminating,” Cruz added. “It’s not new for law enforcement to try to find a hook,” the senator said.

RUSSIAGATE AND KILLARY?? And who knows……maybe there are incriminating documents about Killary that the LEFT is desperately trying to cover up – perhaps about Clinton and Putin?

They are SO desperate.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT – This is from MEET THE PRESS: “Americans Are Angry And Worried About U.S. Future”, New NBC News Poll Shows

From Breitbart.com

NBC anchor Chuck Todd said Sunday on “Meet the Press” that a new NBC News poll finds “Americans are angry” with a graphic showing 74% of those polled say the country is on the wrong track.

Todd said, “We are less than three months before the Midterms and our brand new NBC News poll paints a pretty bleak picture. Americans are angry. They are disappointed, and they are worried about the future of this country.”

He continued, “Just 21% of adults say we are headed in the right direction. Once again three out of four Out of 4 Americans say we are on the wrong track. In fact, this number never before in this poll has this wrong track number been over 70% for this long. It’s been nearly a year now. 58% say America’s best years are behind us. That’s an all-time high in our polls.”

Todd added, “So what is behind this rise in pessimism about our country’s future? Well, it starts with this., Americans don’t like either party and they don’t like anyone in power.

teaching, for reproof, for correction, for [ b ] training in righteousness;

away his part from the tree of life and [ a ] from the holy city, which are written in this book

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NASB)
11  He has made everything [ a ] appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart,

sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence
of the Lord; 20  and that He may send Jesus, the [ b ] Christ appointed for you, 21  whom heaven
must receive until the [ c ] period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the
mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. 22  Moses said, ‘THE LORD GOD WILL RAISE UP
He says to you. 23  And it will be that every soul that does not heed that prophet shall be
utterly destroyed from among the people.’

Christ will call all believers to Himself/Heaven [often called the Rapture]

1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 (NASB)
13  But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so
that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. 14  For if we believe that Jesus
died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep [ a ] in
Jesus. 15  For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive [ b ] and
remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16  For
the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a [ c ] shout, with the voice of the archangel
and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are live
and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the
air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.


Colossians 1:9-12 (NASB)
9  For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you
and to ask that you may be filled with the [ a ] knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom
and understanding, 10  so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, [ b ] to please Him
in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and [ c ] increasing in the [ d ] knowledge of
God; 11  strengthened with all power, according to [ e ] His glorious might, [ f ] for the attaining of
all steadfastness and [ g ] patience; joyously 12  giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified
us [ h ] to share in the inheritance of the [ i ] saints in Light.
Hebrews 13:3 (NASB)

3  Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated,
since you yourselves also are in the body.

Armor of God
Ephesians 6:13-18 (NASB)
13  Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil
day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14  Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED
having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; 16 [ a ] in addition to all,
taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming
arrows of the evil one. 17  And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God.
18 [ b ] With all prayer and petition [ c ] pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, [ d ] be on
the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,
Hebrews 4:12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12  For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and
piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to
judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
Psalm 119:11 (NASB)
11  Your word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against You.

A wonderful brother in Christ sent God’s Word to me along with the admonishment to read, memorize, meditate upon and TRUST the Word of the Lord. I use the word admonishment because this truly is a warning from the Lord to immerse ourselves in His Holy Word.


Ephesians 6: 10-17 10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in
the power of His might. 11  Put on the whole armor of God, that ye
may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12  For we wrestle
not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against
spiritual wickedness in high places. 13  Wherefore take unto you the
whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand. 14  Stand therefore, having your loins
girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of
righteousness; 15  And your feet shod with the preparation of the
gospel of peace;
16  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to
quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17  And take the helmet of

When I received this in my email, I knew that this wasn’t by chance that this would come to me. I knew that God wanted me to share this with the readership and to pass it on. I also knew the importance of saving this – printing this out – hiding it in our Bibles and in our hearts.

We don’t know just how bad the persecution with become. But we do know this: if we are jailed for our faith, God wants us to share His Word with others who are not saved. We MUST be equipped to do this!! And we MUST hide His Word in our hearts so that we will not sin against him.

I have been feeling so down for the last couple of months. I have also been feeling sorry for myself because my family thinks that I have lost my mind because of my faith and love for Jesus.

The verses of Scripture which were sent by a precious brother helped me to see that this self-pity is used by the devil and is NOT from God! I needed to be reminded to forgive and pray for my family!


The Simple Plan of Salvation

I am asking you the most important question of life. Your joy or your sorrow for all eternity depends upon your answer. The question is: Are you saved? It is not a question of how good you are, nor if you are a church member, but are you saved? Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die?

God says in order to go to Heaven, you must be born again. In John 3:7, Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again.”

Born again

In the Bible God gives us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plan is simple! You can be saved today. How?

First, my friend, you must realize you are a sinner. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

For all have sinned

Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to death. “For the wages [payment] of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God in Hell.

“ . . . it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).


But God loved you so much He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. “ . . . He hath made Him, Jesus, Who knew no sin to be sin for us . . . that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

He who had no sin

Jesus had to shed His blood and die. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood” (Lev. 17:11). “ . . . without shedding of blood is no remission [pardon]” (Hebrews 9:22).


“ . . . God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

Christ died for us

Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and He died in our place. He became our substitute. It is true. God cannot lie.

My friend, “God commandeth all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30). This repentance is a change of mind that agrees with God that one is a sinner, and also agrees with what Jesus did for us on the Cross.

In Acts 16:30-31, the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas: “ . . . ‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ And they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved ’ ”

Believe on the Lord

Simply believe on Him as the one who bore your sin, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected. His resurrection powerfully assures that the believer can claim everlasting life when Jesus is received as Savior.

“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” (John 1:12).

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).


Whosoever includes you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved.

Surely, you realize you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heart to God in prayer.

In Luke 18:13, the sinner prayed:
“God be merciful to me a sinner.” Just pray: “Oh God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when He died on the Cross. I believe His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive Him as my Savior. I thank You for the forgiveness of my sins, the gift of salvation and everlasting life, because of Your merciful grace. Amen.”

Just take God at His word and claim His salvation by faith. Believe, and you will be saved. No church, no lodge, no good works can save you. Remember, God does the saving. All of it!

God’s simple plan of salvation is: You are a sinner. Therefore, unless you believe on Jesus Who died in your place, you will spend eternity in Hell. If you believe on Him as your crucified, buried, and risen Savior, you receive forgiveness for all of your sins and His gift of eternal salvation by faith.

You say, “Surely, it cannot be that simple.” Yes, that simple! It is scriptural. It is God’s plan. My friend, believe on Jesus and receive Him as Savior today.

If His plan is not perfectly clear, read this tract over and over, without laying it down, until you understand it. Your soul is worth more than all the world.

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36).

Be sure you are saved. If you lose your soul, you miss Heaven and lose all. Please! Let God save you this very moment.
God’s power will save you, keep you saved, and enable you to live a victorious Christian life. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, Who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Do not trust your feelings. They change. Stand on God’s promises. They never change. After you are saved, there are four things to practice daily for spiritual growth:

Pray — you talk to God.
Read your Bible — God talks to you.Witness — you talk for God.
Join a Bible Study — You will grow in your faith.
Develop relationships with other believers – Fellowship is so important!!
