House Democrats are continuing their campaign to hold President Donald Trump and his allies accountable for their corruption. Now, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has issued a public demand for the Trump administration’s Director of National Intelligence to declassify reports covering the communications and case of Michael Flynn, a former top official in the Trump administration. Flynn eventually pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about his communications with the then-Russian Ambassador to the United States, but the Trump appointee-led Justice Department recently moved to drop the charges against Flynn. The material that Schiff is requesting would allow the public to see the actual facts of Flynn’s case, which have not changed.

Schiff shared on Twitter:

‘It’s clear the Administration is selectively declassifying information for purely political purposes, an abuse of the classification system. We need to ensure a transparent and complete public record free of political manipulation. It’s time to declassify any Flynn transcripts’

Recently, the administration has declassified information like the list of now former officials who were part of the requests to “unmask” Flynn’s name from the transcripts of intercepted communications that he was a part of. Although allies of the president have tried to depict this unmasking of his previously concealed name as some kind of plot against the president, unmasking of identities in material like the transcripts in question is routine. Besides, how would the officials have even plotted against the president if they didn’t know that Flynn was talking to the interests in question until after the unmasking?

None of these issues have stopped the president and his allies from running with the narrative that there’s some kind of secret plot against Trump that Democrats should be held accountable for. Trump has even come up with a nickname for the supposed scandal — “Obamagate.” He’s yet to actually fully even explain what specific crimes he’s alleging are a part of that scandal.
