Government officials buried parts of the story about the investigation of the Trump campaign beneath the veil of classification in order to conceal what really happened from the American people, according to former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell. Grenell, who had completed his term as the acting head of the intelligence community, told radio show host Mark Levin that government elites in Washington routinely “overclassify” official records in order to protect reputations. “Certain parts of investigation were tamped down through classification and edited through classification, and then the public misses the whole story. They only see part of it, on purpose,” Grenell said on May 27. “It angers me, because what happens is you take information and you weaponize it, and its an elite thing where you keep the information in the back, and you pretend like the public doesnt need it. This is a problem. We cant overclassify things just to protect reputations.” Durin..
