  • House Intel GOP asked Trump to declassify key parts of Carter Page FISA application

    Republicans on the House intelligence committee asked President Trump last month to declassify key sections of the surveillance warrant application for ex-campaign aide Carter Page, according to a letter obtained by Fox News. The heavily-redacted application outlining the justifications for surveiling Page, which was approved and renewed several times by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), was released over the weekend after a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. “Because DOJ (Department of Justice) and FBI continue to obstruct the Committee's investigation, it is time to put the facts in the public domain,” the letter, dated June 14, states.
  • FBI used anti-Trump media to obtain spy warrants on campaign

    The FBI continued to tell judges that dossier writer Christopher Steele wasn’t the source of a news article the bureau used to corroborate a wiretap application when in fact Mr. Steele had publicly acknowledged that he fed the anti-Trump story. This chronology is contained in four heavily censored Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act applications obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch under the Freedom of Information Act. The documents also show that the FBI relied as evidence on mainstream media stories that were critical of the Donald Trump presidential campaign. The FBI submitted the warrants for surveillance on Trump campaign...

  • FLASHBACK: Obama Spox: Allegations of Wiretapping Trump Tower Are 'Simply False'

    Kevin Lewis, spokesman for former President Barack Obama, denied accusations by President Donald Trump saying the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower prior to the election. In a statement, Lewis said: "A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false."
  • With the release of new documents, Devin Nunes’s memo on Carter Page has gotten even less credible

    Wash Post via MSN.com ^ | 7/22/2018 | Philip Bump
    Earlier this year, the political world was gripped by a stunning accusation from Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) that the government’s application for a warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page was born of bias and almost entirely reliant on a dossier of information compiled on the dime of Democratic operatives. He had a memo that made that argument; eventually, and probably without much goading, President Trump was persuaded to release it publicly. Even based on what was known then, the hype surrounding Nunes’s memo seemed to oversell the point. In short order, other revelations about the warrant application...

    President Trump claims the FBI spied on and undermined his presidential campaign in 2016 for partisan purposes. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) does not. Responding to Saturday's publication of the FBI's application to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in connection to Russian election interference, Rubio said on CNN Sunday he "has a different view on it."

    As the editors of The Weekly Standard suggested last week, Congress could pass a resolution of censure for the president’s conduct and his subsequent comments. Congress can also take steps with concrete consequences: • Pass legislation imposing new sanctions on Russia in the event of any future attacks on our democratic process. Dare President Trump to veto it. Override him if he does. • Hold hearings that would include in-depth testimony from the national security team on the Russian attacks, putting the case on the record (again), while putting pressure on members of the administration to correct the president’s comments....

    A former aide for President Obama tore into James Comey after the ex-FBI director urged Democrats not to “lose” their minds and “rush to the socialist left.” Tommy Vietor, a former Obama spokesperson and current co-host of the popular "Pod Save America" podcast, responded to Comey on Sunday afternoon. “Hey Jim, we got this covered,” Vietor wrote on Twitter. “No one is asking for your advice. As we saw during the campaign, your judgment isn’t great! All the best, everyone.” His tweet came after Comey told Democrats that leaning too far to the left is what President Trump and his...

    The liberals, the media, the Democrats, and some Republicans are very upset about Russia. They've had more positions on Russia than Stormy Daniels as far as I'm concerned. Let me point out some history -- this is very, very important. John McCain, God bless him, and others have said that what Trump did at that press conference is the worst interaction we've ever had with Russia, the worst diplomatic disaster ever. Forget about the media, I want you to know something: In 1945, Franklin Roosevelt sold out half of Europe to Stalin. He repeatedly praised Stalin. Franklin Roosevelt is the...

    Many have long suspected that the FISA warrants on Carter Page and the Trump campaign were phony, but now the proof has begun to emerge. Via @Paul Sperry: The FBI's application to spy on Carter Page and Trump campaign repeats to FISA judge the myth that the GOP platform on Russia was watered down It was not. The declassified FBI warrant application attests to secret FISA court that "THE FBI LEARNED that Page met with at least two Russian officials during the trip,"as if FBI learned this independently,when in fact it's clear it relied on Clinton-paid dossier for the informationTarget...

    The non-profit Coolidge Reagan Foundation on Thursday filed a Federal Election Complaint against Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the Democratic National Committee, their law firm Perkins Coie, and Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy that authored the “pee dossier,” for violating campaign finance laws. The non-profit charged that those parties hid payments made to and received by Fusion GPS, the firm that hired Steele to produce the dossier, in violation of finance laws. Democrats have accused the Trump administration of colluding with foreigners when in reality it was the Democrats who colluded with foreigners, the non-profit charged. “For over a year, Democratic officials...

    Government watchdog Judicial Watch expects the FBI to release a series of redacted documents Friday related to the FISA warrant used to surveil former Trump campaign official Carter Page. "The warrants are controversial because the FISA court was never told that the key information justifying the requests came from a minimally-corroborated “dossier” that was created by Fusion GPS, a paid agent of the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee," Judicial Watch released in a statement. "In April, the DOJ told the court it was “processing for potential redaction and release certain FISA materials related to Carter Page,” and agreed to a...

    Christopher Wray had something pretty interesting to say at a conference today: China, rather than Russia, is the “most significant” long-term threat to the United States, FBI Director Christopher Wray said Wednesday. During an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt at the Aspen Ideas Forum, Wray said that the FBI has economic espionage investigations in all 50 states that trace back to Chinese activity. “It covers everything from corn seeds in Iowa to wind turbines in Massachusetts and everything in between,” said Wray. Most of the forum focused on the FBI’s investigation of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election and...
