President Donald Trump on Sunday promised that “mind-boggling” new documents would soon be made public, relating to the events leading up to the Mueller inquiry.
Trump has already vowed to declassify all information surrounding the investigation, which aimed to find out whether the Trump campaign had requested or received Russian help.
On Sunday, the president told Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo that the documents proved the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton attempted to install him.

Trump says public should expect imminent release of ‘jaw-dropping’ documents
“The documents are being released at a level no one has seen before,” he said.
“Things that no one thought were going to come out have been published and you see it all the time. You see what’s going on.
“We took them cold, we got them cold.
In recent weeks, Trump has increasingly called for intelligence chiefs Obama, Clinton and the Obama era to be prosecuted for their role in the investigation.
“And now they have to do something about it, but more material is going to be released, Maria, that is breathtaking. Wait until you see what comes out, ”the president said.
Bartiromo asked if the new documents would relate to the role of the FBI or that of Clinton.
“It’s about everything,” he says.
“Hillary Clinton is ‘Crooked Hillary’. I don’t call her “Crooked Hillary” for nothing.
Obama was told of a Clinton “plan” to tie Trump to Russia as a “way to distract the public from his use of a private mail server” ahead of the 2016 election.

On October 6, Trump tweeted that he had authorized the declassification of all documentation relating to the 2016 operation, known as the Crossfire Hurricane.
Intelligence officials suspected that Trump campaign figures were seeking Russia’s help.
Trump said he had “fully authorized” the total declassification of all documents relating to collusion with Russia, calling the investigation a “hoax.”
“I have fully authorized the total declassification of all documents relating to the greatest political CRIME in American history, the Russian hoax,” he said.
Likewise, the Hillary Clinton email scandal. No writing!
He later added, “All information about the Russian hoax scandal was declassified by me a long time ago. Unfortunately for our country, people have acted very slowly, especially since it is perhaps the biggest political crime in our country’s history. Act!!!

Trump gave the green light to Attorney General Bill Bar to declassify any documents related to monitoring Trump’s campaign in 2016.
John Ratcliffe, director of national intelligence, declassified notes from former CIA director John Brennan that showed former Obama was told of a “plan” to tie Trump to Russia as a “means of distract the public from using a private mail server ”ahead of the 2016 election.
“Today, under the leadership of President Trump, I declassified additional documents relating to ongoing congressional surveillance and investigative activity,” Ratcliffe said in a statement.
The notes were taken after Obama was briefed on the matter, a source familiar with the matter shared.
Trump, during his Twitter frenzy on October 6, called for prosecution of those linked to the investigation.
He was angry that the issue was not covered enough, saying “The media are aware”.
He continued, “So I had to constantly fight all this scum, achieve more than any other president in the first term, and then they talk about chaos. They created crimes against me and this administration!
He then said of FBI investigators: “I can’t believe these crooks haven’t been prosecuted yet. Pathetic!’
