Last night’s breaking news post of the President using the declassification of the FISA documents as a “trump card” against any backlash from the Democrats came as a disappointment.
Trump told The New York Post in an exclusive interview that it was his insurance policy for his family and staff should Democrats attack his daughter Ivanka or son-in-law Jared especially.
The President also told The Post it might be better to hold off the news until the 2020 campaign begins. “I think that would help my campaign. If they want to play tough, I will do it. They will see how devastating those pages are.”
“It’s much more powerful if I do it then,” Trump said, “because if we had done it already, it would already be yesterday’s news,” Trump continued.
Trump could be using this opportunity to alert the New York City left know he has the goods on them and will use it when the time is right for the biggest impact.
I guess the biggest take away we can assume from these latest comments is that the FISA evidence will not come out as a result of the Mueller investigation.
