Transparency matters. A hallmark of our republic is that government officials are accountable to the American people, and nobody is above the law.
That’s been something conservatives have pointed out for years, but lately it’s the left that has jumped on the “transparency” bandwagon.
Donald - Trump - Office - Liberals - Lack
Since Donald Trump took office, liberals have complained about a lack of transparency from the White House. The president is trying to get away with everything while concealing his actions from citizens — or so the narrative goes.
But as we’ve seen many times before, that liberal narrative may be completely backward. A year ago, we covered how the establishment media was forced to admit that the Trump administration has been more open with the public than other recent presidents.
Amount - Information - President - White - House
“The amount of the information flowing out of the president himself, not to mention the White House itself, is unparalleled,” Rick Klein, political director for ABC News, said in May 2018.
Now, the “lack of transparency” narrative has once again fallen on its face.
Part - Push - Light - Election - Trump
As part of his push to shine a light on what happened before and after the 2016 election, Trump announced Friday that he would provide unprecedented public access to documents connected to the “Russian collusion” claims leveled against him.
“We want to be very transparent, so as you know, I declassified everything, everything they want,” Trump told reporters, according to Fox News. “We are exposing everything.”
Everything - Case - Materials - Obama-era - Officials
“Everything” in this case refers to previously classified materials related to alleged spying conducted by Obama-era officials against Trump’s team. The president and many Republicans have maintained that illicit surveillance was conducted to undermine Trump, based largely on false pretenses such as the debunked Steele dossier.
Will the release of these documents end up hurting Democrats?
