White HouseStatement from the Press Secretary

At the request of a number of committees of Congress, and for reasons of transparency, the President has directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to provide for the immediate declassification of the following materials: (1) pages 10-12 and 17-34 of the June 2017 application to the FISA court in the matter of Carter W. Page; (2) all FBI reports of interviews with Bruce G. Ohr prepared in connection with the Russia investigation; and (3) all FBI reports of interviews prepared in connection with all Carter Page FISA applications.

In addition, President Donald J. Trump has directed the Department of Justice (including the FBI) to publicly release all text messages relating to the Russia investigation, without redaction, of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr.

This however could prove embarrassing to the intelligence services of certain “allies,” so cancel that thought…

Trump says baloney (on Twitter), and he has a point; the increase in the death toll did not result from an actual body count, but from a comparative statistical analysis; there were thousands more deaths post-Maria in comparison to pre-Maria counts. It is inevitable that causally down-stream consequences of the hurricane will bring with it an uptick in the mortality rate, as will be the case with all natural disasters, whose official counts are attributable directly to the storm, earthquake, etc. Life-imperiling consequences of disasters result from destruction of infrastructure, strain on emergency services, and the like. The same methodology could be applied to the aftermath of any storm and likewise see a significant uptick in mortality counts, though perhaps not as severe as in Puerto Rico…
