The FBI obtained a court order last summer that granted them permission to monitor the communications of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, the Washington Post reported Tuesday.
The so-called FISA warrant was granted as part of an ongoing investigation into possible links between Russian officials and members of the Trump campaign, the paper reported.
“I have done nothing wrong. I have no concerns,” Page added. “I was an obvious target because no one has been more thoughtful and methodical in their criticism of the Clinton/Obama administration foreign policy.”
The Post reported that the government’s application for the FISA warrant cited contacts Page had with a Russian intelligence operative in 2013. According to court documents filed earlier this month in connection with a separate espionage case, the Russian tried to recruit Page as an intelligence source.
In a statement to Fox News, Page said he was “excited the truth is coming out.”
Page, who was working as an energy consultant at the time, acknowledged that he “shared basic immaterial information and publicly available research documents” with the operative, Victor Podobnyy. He described the information as “nothing more than a few samples from the far more detailed lectures” he delivered at New York University in 2013.
Obama’s spin doctor, Ben Rhodes, who bragged about creating a media echo chamber to sell Obama’s dicked-up foreign policy, and also had a hand in the infamous Benghazi “talking points”, spied on US Jews while Obama was helping Iran with the nuke deal.
The FISA court gave Obama permission to wiretap Trump in October under the guise of national security. Obama did that in case Trump was elected, so he could use whatever eavesdropping he compiled to undermine the Trump administration. He pulled an end-around and basically lied to FISA in order to get the permission to wiretap.
The entire debacle is another one of Obama’s violations of the 4th Amendment.
Hello? DOJ? When’s the investigation, indictment, and prosecution?
