Obama’s spy, Stefan Halper, is out of luck as the White House just recently ordered the FBI and DOJ to hand over all documents on Halper.
This is HUGE! Everyone knows our president would love to fire Christopher Wray and Rod Rosenstein.
However, right now politics will not allow President Trump to make such a move.
In the end, the POTUS is the ultimate decision maker of what is classified and what is not.
Not even the Supreme Court can overrule his decision.
If the two men refuse to hand over the information, Trump can fire them and appoint temporary replacements of his choice without the approval of Senate.
According to steadfastandloyal:
He could pick the most radical replacements he wants and they would serve until the Senate confirms a replacement.
California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence panel, has been locked in a heated battle with the DOJ over the records.
The Republican has accused the DOJ and FBI of obstruction for refusing to release the documents.
Nunes has led an investigation into potential surveillance abuses at the FBI and DOJ during its collusion investigation.
Halper’s activities have been dubbed “Spygate” by President Donald Trump and many of his supporters.
They argue that the FBI took improper steps to keep tabs on members of the Trump campaign.
Democrats and other Trump critics have defended the use of an informant, saying they are common law enforcement tools.
But Republicans have also pointed to the timing of Halper’s activities and questioned whether the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign earlier than the bureau has previously acknowledged.
The problem for Democrats is that once this information has been made public it could raise more questions necessitating even more releases. It could snowball all out of control.
