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 information
- Target of FBI’s FISA warrant broader than Page; also names Papadopoulos & Trump campaign: “FBI believes Russian Government’s efforts to influence the 2016 US presidential election were being coordinated w Page & perhaps other individuals associated w [Trump’s] campaign”
Both, IMO, were set up.
Here’s the license to target anyone they wanted:
