Trump just did more to preserve the full CIA Torture Report than Obama ever did
Credit where credit it due. While Obama was ending his term the DOJ fought on his behalf in federal court, arguing against an order to deposit the full report with the court clerk for preservation in the ongoing trial of Abd al-Rahim Al-Nashiri. Al-Nashiri has alleged he was waterboarded while detained by the CIA.

Trump's legal team issued a one-page notice of compliance stating they would be turning over a full copy of the Torture Report to the court as requested.
