President Trump is clearly getting fed up with the distraction of the Mueller witch hunt. He’s not the only one. Only hours ago, he tweeted:

There is No Collusion! The Robert Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt, headed now by 17 (increased from 13, including an Obama White House lawyer) Angry Democrats, was started by a fraudulent Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC. Therefore, the Witch Hunt is an illegal Scam!

Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee have also had enough of the games that are being played by the FBI and DOJ, who are dragging their feet with the release of documents and the heavy redactions that prevent American citizens from learning the truth. Rep Nunes and fellow Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have asked President Trump to declassify 21 pages of the FISA application used to spy on Carter Page.

The Daily Caller reports that Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes claimed Sunday that the American public will be “shocked” when it sees the remaining blacked out portions of the FBI’s applications for spy warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“We are quite confident that once the American people see these 20 pages, at least for those that will get real reporting on this issue, they will be shocked by what’s in that FISA application,” Nunes said in an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo.

Nunes’ comments raise expectations about what information remains hidden behind 20-plus pages of the FBI’s fourth and final application for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against Page.

The Department of Justice released portions of the four FISA applications on July 20 in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. A majority of the information remains redacted because it is classified.

Nunes and his fellow Republicans on the Intelligence Committee asked President Donald Trump in a June 14 letter to declassify 21 pages from the final FISA application, which was signed by deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The New York Post writer, Paul Sperry tweeted a response to an article written by Kimberly Strassel in the Wall Street Journal about Rep. Nunes, and how he has become “Washington’s Public Enemy #1” over his efforts to uncover the truth about the dirty tactics used by the FBI to spy on President Trump and his campaign.

Strassel: Thanks to REP. NUNES, “We now know the FBI used informants against Trump’s campaign, that it obtained surveillance warrants based on opposition research conducted for Clinton’s campaign & that after the election Obama officials ‘unmasked’ & monitored the incoming team.”

Watch Rep Nunes explain why President Trump needs to act on their letter, and demand the FISA warrants be declassified:
