On Thursday evening, President Trump gave the green light to Attorney General William Barr to declassify documents pertaining to the spying that occurred on Trump’s 2016 campaign.

The Washington swamp and their allies in the media knew it was coming, and yet, their hypocrisy and outrage is nothing short of obvious as they are scurrying to cover, deflect, hide, and change the narrative.

Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH), and Mark Meadows (R-NC) took to Twitter exposing the “overwhelming hypocrisy” by Democrats after President Trump gave the Attorney General the authority to declassify.

In a series of tweets, Jordan explained, “Democrats are engaged in presidential obstruction. They’re so desperate to stop the President that they won’t help the country. The President’s had enough! Can’t blame him.”

He continued, “Congress has a legitimate constitutional role to conduct oversight of the executive branch. But that’s not what the Democrats are doing. They’re digging into the President’s personal life from BEFORE he was a candidate. There can only be one reason to do this: POLITICS.”

Jordan went on to say, “Republicans conducted serious oversight on abuses of gov’t power by the Obama-Biden administration: -IRS targeting conservatives -Fast & Furious gun-running -Solyndra and other green companies wasting taxpayer dollars -Benghazi tragedy -FBI/DOJ targeting Trump campaign.” (Continued Below)

He added, “Compare that to what the Democrats are doing. They’re going after: -The President’s PERSONAL tax returns -The President’s PERSONAL finances -The President’s PERSONAL business records It has nothing to do with oversight of the executive branch.”

Then, Jordan pointed out, “Remember, the first thing that @RepCummings did after taking control of the Oversight Committee was to change its name from “Committee on Oversight and GOVERNMENT Reform” to “Committee on Oversight and Reform.” They don’t think their oversight should focus on government!”

He continued, “The Democrats are so focused on taking down the President that they have secret Memorandums of Understanding to coordinate their partisan investigations. We’ve asked them to release those MOUs to the public, but they won’t do it.” (Continued Below)

The Ohio Congressman concluded, “We could work together on the big problems facing America. We could solve the border crisis, lower the cost of prescription drugs, fix our broken budget, and come to an agreement on infrastructure. But Democrats are more interested in stopping President Trump.”

Rep. Mark Meadows praised President Trump for beginning the declassification process and he also called out Democrats for their hypocrisy.

Meadows wrote, “Outstanding—President Trump authorizing the Attorney General to declassify documents related to surveillance during the 2016 election. Americans are going to learn the truth about what occurred at their Justice Department. #ReleaseTheDocuments”

He added, “The hypocrisy from Democrats is almost overwhelming. They subpoena new useless information daily, yet now fight tooth and nail to hide the truth from Americans on FISA activity. It’s obvious they solely want to target Trump. Their desire for “transparency” is nakedly partisan.” (Continued Below)
