Richard Grenell has declassified a new batch of Russia probe documents on his way out as acting director of national intelligence, leaving the decision on whether to make those files public up to newly sworn-in Director John Ratcliffe.
The documents include transcripts of phone calls that then-incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak had in December 2016, during the presidential transition period. Grenell said publicly last week that he was in the process of declassifying those files, after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., asked that he do so.
Fox News has learned that the declassification review of those transcripts is now complete, and it will be left up to Ratcliffe on whether to release them publicly.

Why do I have this gnawing doubt the release will happen?
If it is correct that the judge in the Flynn case must move by June first it may be better to hold the information until then.
Oh, I don't know. Might the last 3 years of such promises have something to do with that doubt? I guess this is Ratcliffe's opportunity to make a good first impression. We know the IC doesn't want them released. Is Ratcliffe loyal to the IC, or to America? I wonder if this will include the transcript of the Dec 29 call that only the FBI had access to...
Barr is like a black hole - once a declassified document goes to him its never heard from again.
wonder what was mentioned about sanctions?
Have FAITH!!! I KNOW YOU ARE CATHOLIC!!
