That means presidents can also declassify anything they chose to — for any reason or no reason — as they have done in the past. George W. Bush, under pressure in 2004, declassified the section of the 2001 presidential daily brief headlined “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” Barack Obama declassified the Justice Department memos produced during the Bush presidency on the legality of torture.
This is very bad news for Democrats and the Obama administration, because as President...Trump has the power to declassify anything including the FISA memo based on National Security. Hopefully President Trump finds out this loop hole, because according to SCOTUS if Trump demands the release of the FISA memo based on a threat against National Security...Then this FISA memo could be released by President Trump himself.
White House Democrats who voted for the FISA memo to be blocked are celebrating the shutdown of the government, Trump could simply make the call to release the FISA memo based on the threat it presents to National Security. If Trump uses this power during the government shutdown you could see those blocking the release of this memo who and those in the Obama administration connected to this memo go to jail overnight...And all Trump has to do is declare the release of the FISA memo as being important to National Security.
