According to the US president, there will be no seizure of any confidential information.
U.S. President Donald Trump has given permission to declassify the entirety and without confiscating any confidential information, all documents related to the investigation into the alleged links with Russia, as well as the scandal with the e-mail of his rival in the 2016 elections Hillary Clinton. The U.S. leader announced this on Tuesday on his Twitter page. I have fully authorized the declassification of all documents, without exception, concerning the greatest political crime in American history – related to Russia cheating. The same applies to the scandal of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail messages. And no seizure of [confidential] information!” – he wrote.
Trump and representatives of his administration have repeatedly accused U.S. secret service officials of spying on his campaign headquarters. Special prosecutor Robert Mueller spent about two years investigating attempts to interfere in the U.S. electoral process in 2016, which were incriminated by Russia. As a result, he claimed that Russia was trying to influence the presidential election campaign in the United States.
At the same time, Mueller admitted that the investigation did not reveal conspiracy Trump, who won the election with Russia.
Trump repeatedly called the ongoing investigation a “witch hunt” and denied all accusations of conspiracy with Moscow. Russia has also repeatedly denied the allegations of attempts to influence the U.S. elections. In 2015, there was a high-profile scandal because Clinton, when he was head of the State Department, used a personal e-mail box for official purposes. Later she handed over to the Foreign Ministry all her working correspondence (55 thousand letters), and personal (more than 30 thousand letters) was deleted, for which she was harshly criticized. In July 2016, then FBI director James Komi announced as a result of the investigation related to Clinton’s correspondence that his department had found no grounds to charge her. However, in October of the same year, he said that the investigation was resumed in light of newly discovered circumstances. Finally, on November 6, 2016, two days before the U.S. presidential election, Komi issued a notice that an additional inspection had been completed and the conclusion that Clinton was not competent remains in force.
