Trump Puts Hillary on Notice over ‘Crime of the Century’: ‘This Is Just the Beginning’

President Donald Trump has warned Hillary Clinton that she will face justice for committing “the crime of the century.”

Speaking during a new interview with Fox News, Trump responded fiercely to the allegations from Special Counsel John Durham’s probe into the Russia collusion hoax.

Trump accused Clinton of committing “treason at the highest level” and warned that Durham has only touched the tip of the iceberg by finding evidence that Hillary spied on the White House servers.

The 45th president told Fox News that “you’re going to see a lot of other things happening” with Durham’s probe as he digs deeper into Hillary Clinton.

Trump said:  “It looks like this is just the beginning, because, if you read the filing and have any understanding of what took place – and I called this a long time ago – you’re going to see a lot of other things happening, having to do with what, really, just is a continuation of the crime of the century.”

“They have the declassification order,” Trump said of the order he have the Justice Department back in 2019.

“And they should declassify, absolutely, especially in light of what has just happened and what has just been revealed.”

Trump denied having any additional insight into the allegations outlined in Durham’s February 11 court filing until the filing was public but said, “This is such a big event, nobody’s seen anything like this.”

“We did declassify, and people saw them, and I think you’ll see some big stuff,” Trump said before calling on the Justice Department to release records to the public because there is “tremendous dishonesty and corruption.”

“They should release them,” Trump said.

A White House statement on Trump’s declassification order in 2019 said: “At the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election.

“Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions,” the White House statement from May 2019 read.

The order gave AG Bill Barr the “full and complete authority to declassify information in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information.”

Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson wrote a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland saying he has “failed” to follow through on Trump’s order to declassify the records and demanded the AG produce them.

They wrote:

“We remain concerned that over one year from the date then-President Trump directed the Justice Department to declassify certain Crossfire Hurricane records the Justice Department has not only failed to declassify a single page, the Department has failed to identify for Congress records that it knows with certainty to be covered by the declassification directive.

“Your letter noted that on July 9, 2021, the Department ‘offered to compare the documents we understand to be covered by the Memorandum with the documents that had been previously provided to Congress.’

“However, your letter also stated that the Department ‘has been taking steps to determine’ which documents can be disclosed and that review is ‘ongoing.’

“It is incumbent upon the Department to determine which records are covered by the declassification directive.

“When the Department is able to (1) identify with certainty the records subject to the declassification directive; (2) confirm the records are not those that have already been reviewed by our staff; and (3) agree that no improper redactions will be placed on those records, our staff stand ready to review in camera prior to production to Congress.

“Absent those conditions, our staff should not have to spend potentially multiple days and countless hours in the Department’s classified facility only to play a guessing game with the Department about what document may or may not be covered by the declassification directive and potentially review records that have already been produced to Congress.

“Our oversight efforts are based on our unyielding belief that the American people deserve to know the complete truth about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

“We request a detailed response with respect to those questions and a commitment to the aforementioned conditions no later than March 1, 2022.”
