One of President Donald Trump’s staunch allies in the House, North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), teased the upcoming expected declassification of important documents related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
During a Wednesday interview on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Meadows — the top Republican in the influential House Freedom Caucus — proclaimed that he and his Republican colleagues were in “a search for the truth” as they continue to release closed-door transcripts related to Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference.
“You got to get to the right time to release some of this stuff,” said the North Carolina Republican. “For us, it’s about a search for the truth.”
Meadows then predicted the expected upcoming declassification of documents related to the Russia probe would contain information that would “curl your hair” and that Democrats are reacting so “visceral[ly]” because the Democrats — specifically House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) — “know” that the documents will point the “finger” back at the Democrats.
“There is information coming that will curl your hair. I can tell you that the reason why it is so visceral — the response from the Democrats is so visceral right now — is because they know, they’ve seen documents. Adam Schiff has seen documents that he knows will actually put the finger pointing back at him and his Democrat colleagues, not the president of the United States.”

Republican lawmakers are eagerly awaiting the expected declassification of documents related to the Russia investigation by the president, which they believe may contain transcripts from meetings between former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopolous and FBI informants.
As IJR Red previously reported, the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) blasted the House Democratic leadership on Wednesday as engaging in “a coordinated effort to take down the president” through their multiple committee investigations of Trump.
