Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Tuesday said that the 28 redacted pages of a report on 9/11 likely depict Saudi Arabia’s role in the terrorist attacks.

“I think I know what it’s going to say,” he said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” “It’s going to be very profound, having to do with Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia’s role on the World Trade Center and the attack.

Lawmakers are pressuring President Obama to declassify the 28 pages.

The redacted documents have long been rumored to show Saudi Arabia’s complicity with the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and al Qaeda.

Trump on Tuesday said that the controversial documents have remained secret for too long.

“I think they should have been released a long time,” the GOP presidential front-runner said. “I think they’re finally going to be released in some form. I look forward to reading them.”
