While the bombshell findings seem to have left Clinton speechless, Trump weighed in during an interview on Tuesday. He stressed this is “just the beginning” of what’s to come. Trump called on the Justice Department to declassify further details of the so-called Russia probe.
The 45th president said the DOJ should “absolutely” declassify the remaining records in the investigation and pointed out the agency is already under an order to do so. Trump previously ordered the declassification to begin back in 2019 during his administration, but the Joe’s Biden’s Justice Department appears to have made little progress on the issue.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) fired off a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland requesting more information on why they haven’t followed through on the order. Meanwhile, several other Republican senators say Clinton campaign operatives will be held accountable for their actions amid the bombshell revelations from the Durham probe.
Specifically, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) called to hold Clinton accountable for spying on the 2016 Trump campaign and lying about the Russian collusion hoax. On Tuesday, he said the actions by Clinton-paid operatives uncovered by Special Counsel Durham is illegal and wrong.

The Florida lawmaker also pointed out that Democrat congressmen Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) are complicit in the Russia hoax. In response, Schiff’s office accused Scott of “misinformation” and it refused to address the subject matter.
