Eric Holder: Declassifying FISA Docs ‘an Especially Dangerous Abuse of Power’

Former Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. said Tuesday that President Trump’s decision to declassify FISA court documents and Justice Department messages about the Russia investigation is “an especially dangerous abuse of power.”

The 19 documents declassified would provide an insight to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act application process, FBI interviews with DOJ official Bruce Ohr, and interview reports regarding conducting surveillance on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Holder criticized Trump for putting “his self-interest about the national security interests of the country.”
