President Trump is expected to declassify documents related to his onetime campaign aide Carter Page and Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, according to a report Sunday.

Allies close to the president told Axios the move could happen as early as this week.

Trump's Republican allies in Congress have been clamoring for weeks to lift the veil on these documents believing they would prove to the public their concern that the federal Russia investigation, which is looking at possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, was began for faulty or politically motivated reasons.

Page was targeted by four FISA warrants during the 2016 campaign due to suspicious ties to the Russians. The FBI used information from the infamous dossier by ex-British spy Christopher Steele in its warrant applications, even though some of its claims, including those about Trump's ties to Russia, were not verified.

Meanwhile Ohr has come under fire by congressional Republicans in recent weeks after it was discovered he went over his superiors' heads at the DOJ and contacted the FBI with information he obtained from Steele and his wife Nellie Ohr, who was a contractor for Fusion GPS, the same opposition research firm that commissioned Steele's dossier.

As recently as last week Trump said he was open to declassifying the documents.

“Well, we’re looking at it very seriously right now because the things that have gone on are so bad, so bad. I mean they were surveilling my campaign," Trump told the Daily Caller. "If that happened on the other foot, they would’ve considered that treasonous. They would’ve considered that spying at the highest level. Can you imagine if we were doing that to [former President Barack] Obama instead of Obama and his people doing that to us? Everybody would’ve been in jail for the next 500 years. OK? Can you believe it, where they paid this guy millions of dollars, it turned out? If you look at all of the things that are happening.”
