And Republicans will do nothing or cheer
So here is my question: I recall it being said with respect to the info he handed to the Russian’s last year that the president can declassify anything he wants. Was that a true statement at the time or was that just made up nonsense to justify what he did? If that was true, how does it apply here?
Yes, the President has the authority to declassify anything.

I don’t think any of those Parkland kids are 35 quite yet. ;-) But Dwayne Johnson would most definitely be an improvement.
Rod is out by Monday and Mueller fired by Tuesday.
