Congress has asked President Trump to declassify documents related to the FBI's surveillance of Carter Page and the practices used by DOJ official Bruce Ohr. President Trump is reportedly seriously considering the declassification.

According to The Daily Caller

President Donald Trump is reportedly on the verge of declassifying documents related to the government’s surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and FBI documents regarding Justice Department official Bruce Ohr.

House Republicans have recently pressed Trump to declassify the documents, which they claim undercuts the FBI and Justice Department’s rationale for opening an investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

Axios reported on Sunday that Trump’s allies say that he is close to declassifying the documents.

Sources familiar with Trump’s thinking have told The Daily Caller News Foundation over the past week that they believed Trump was close to releasing the documents.

Trump has personally stated in an interview that he is "seriously considering" declassifying the documents. It is unclear what effect this will have on the Mueller investigation if he does eventually declassify the documents.
