Judicial Watch president: The Obama administration misled the FISA court

Donald Trump news Donald Trump in the White House

In a statement Saturday, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, said the applications "underscore the legitimate concern Federal Bureau of Investigation had about Page's activities as it was investigating Russia's interference".

The Trump administration on Saturday released a set of redacted documents once deemed top secret, the October 2016 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court application and renewals to wiretap Page. In 2016, Conway was appointed to the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by U.S. Chief Justice John Robert, a President George W. Bush appointee, on a rotating basis.

"The F.B.I. believes Page has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian government".

Trump on Sunday used the document release to criticize the Justice Department's handling of the Russian Federation investigation, which he once again described in a tweet as a "witch hunt" against his administration.

Nunes used an obscure committee rule that allowed the classified memo on the FISA warrant application to be made public, which kicked off the chain of events that prompted Saturday's release of the redacted FISA application following Freedom of Information Act lawsuits.

But Trump's tweets did not address the fact that the FISA application revealed its sourcing at length and was approved by a judge, before being renewed three more times by three other judges.

COLEMAN: So what specifically did the documents say that Page did on Russia's behalf?

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating potential collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign. "How could they? They don't know who the Russian agents are".

Donald Trump says Russian Federation will ‘push hard’ for Democrats during November elections
Trump explained that, because of his tough stance on Putin, "they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats". The president wavers often on whether or not Russian Federation is trying to interfere with US politics.

Donald Trump has dismissed the probe into collusion between his election campaign and Russian Federation as a "witchhunt". "Carter Page was just the foot to surveil the Trump campaign.' ILLEGAL!"

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., pauses to speak with reporters as former FBI lawyer Lisa Page is questioned during a private interview with members of the House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight Committee on whether political bias affected the investigations of Hillary Clinton's emails and the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Monday, July 16, 2018.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday that Trump was "obviously" referring to allegations of collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian agents.

"I don't think it's part of any broader plot", Rubio said. Page denied this to CNN.

But the agreement meant that McDougal signed a non-disclosure agreement that prevented her from revealing the affair. David Pecker, the chairman of parent company American Media Inc (AMI), is Trump's friend.

Trump's tweets landed as he continues to try to reassure the country that he accepts that longtime foe Russia interfered in the 2016 election, despite his public undermining of USA intelligence agencies in Helsinki while standing alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The application notes that Page sent a letter to then-FBI Director James Comey to deny the accusation two days after a news story came out stating that Page was under investigation.

Diveykin, and said Diveykin never told him that the Russians had dirt on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The release of the document is noteworthy as it marks the first public disclosure of a highly sensitive FISA request.

House prices also increased the slowest in five years according to the ONS, with flat prices staying the same for a year. Households were also squeezed by gas and electricity costs, which rose 2.5% and 2.2% respectively, month on month.

"So we now find out that it was indeed the unverified and Fake Dirty Dossier, that was paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNC, that was knowingly & falsely submitted to FISA and which was responsible for starting the totally conflicted and discredited Mueller Witch Hunt!"
