Donald Trump can bring down the FBI with one stroke of his pen
The Department of Justice released the 400-plus page application for a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
The document was loaded with bombshells that confirmed Trump supporters’ worst fears about the out-of-control FBI.
But there is something the FBI kept hidden that could bring down former Director James Comey and his co-conspirators.
In a June 14th letter to President Trump, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee asked Trump to declassify 21 pages of the FISA application that had been redacted.
The Daily Caller reports:
Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence asked President Donald Trump in a June 14 letter to declassify and release 21 pages from one of the applications for a spy warrant against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
The Republicans do not specify why they identified the 21 pages in particular, but the request suggests they believe that the heavily redacted pages contain evidence the FBI and Department of Justice misled a federal judge in its application for the Page Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant.
“In the course of the Committee’s investigation, we have uncovered irregularities with the process by which DOJ and FBI obtained information and sought and renewed three times a warrant pursuant to FISA on U.S citizen Carter Page,” reads the letter, which was first reported by Fox News.
The release of the letter comes just after the Justice Department released four applications submitted for FISA warrants against Page. The applications revealed that the FBI and DOJ relied heavily on the unverified Steele dossier in its application for the spy warrants.
The application makes it clear the FBI used the fake news Russia dossier as one of the central pieces of “evidence” to obtain the warrant to spy on Page.
And Republicans believe the FBI redacted 21 pages of the application to conceal the fact Bureau officials lied to the FISA court in order to obtain the warrant.
