They have recovered documents that the Obama administration rushed to give anti-Trump Senators classified information on Trump just before his inauguration. The anti-trump Senators included Ben Cardin, Mark Warner, and Republican Bob Corker.
This was all just part of the coup attempt against President Trump and those responsible need to be brought to justice. Imagine the scandal had this been done to Barack Obama instead of Donald Trump.
This cannot be allowed to be directed at any future president of either party and to make sure it doesn’t people need to go to prison.
NEW EVIDENCE OF STATE DEPARTMENT EFFORTS TO UNDERMINE TRUMP
We have made public 90 pages of heavily redacted U.S. Department of State documents showing Obama State Department officials’ efforts to disseminate classified information to multiple U.S. Senators immediately prior to President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The information, which included raw intelligence, purported to show “malign” Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Among the senators receiving the classified documents were Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Sen. Robert Corker (R-TN)…
On January 17, 2017, three days before Trump’s inauguration, Kavalec emails Abbasi, Durakoglu and others emphasizing, again, that getting the documents to Cardin and Warner is a priority and urges the process to be sped up:
Agree this is a priority… and I don’t see why lengthy reviews are required. I would suggest we send up the things that can go immediately, and if there is any concern about specific internal documents, those be adjudicated separately and sent up as a follow-on.
The concluding, unredacted section of an otherwise heavily redacted email sent on Friday, January 13, 2017, by former Foreign Service Officer Kerem Bilge to numerous State employees indicates the intense time pressure under which State officials were operating to beat the Inauguration-Day deadline:
**** Please clear the action memo by noon TUESDAY [Jan. 17].
**** Please clear on the actual package of documents, if you have not done so already, by noon TUESDAY [Jan. 17].[Emphasis in original]
