NYT’s Sanger: WH Says Obama’s ‘Best Hope’ Is Declassifying Enough Russia Material So Trump Can’t Ignore It

On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’ “Washington Week,” New York Times National Security Correspondent David Sanger stated that according to most of the people in the White House he’s talked to, President Obama’s “best hope” with the intelligence report into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election “is, declassifying enough of this material, that it leaves a paper record that can’t be ignored by Congress or even by the president-elect, by President-elect Trump.”

Sanger said that he suspects President Obama is “probably going to have to act before the intelligence report is done. It’s going to be done — he’s asked for it before he leaves office. That’s just 34 days away, so this is going to be a pretty rapidly done report. His best hope, most people in the White House who I’ve talked to about this say, is, declassifying enough of this material, that it leaves a paper record that can’t be ignored by Congress or even by the president-elect, by President-elect Trump. The second is that it might create a commission that would begin to look at how we missed so many signals.”
