RUSSIA INVESTIGATION/TWITTER: “A federal judge on Wednesday [October 21, 2020] accepted a White House statement as rescinding President Trump’s tweets that called for the ‘total Declassification’ of all documents in the government’s investigation of Russia’s intervention in the 2016 U.S. election.
But U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton in D.C. chided the president for his carelessness, saying the commander in chief’s words caused confusion on a matter of national security…
Walton ruled in open-records lawsuits brought by news organizations and a watchdog group seeking fuller release of materials related to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation.”
