The constitutional guarantee of freedom of the press depends on how committed the press are to investigating and reporting the truth and keeping their government accountable. Government transparency is key.
But when President Donald Trump announced that he would declassify documents in the Russian collusion investigation, the left didn’t seem impressed.
The Conservative Review’s Deneen Borelli explains exactly why some leftists, who used to advocate government transparency to expose abuse of power, want to keep the documents classified to — get this — protect national security.
President Trump ordered the declassification of Russia probe documents & the Left is applauding a transparent government.
