The FBI now admits it has monitored the communications of Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser. The surveillance appears to have been legal, as the FBI obtained a FISA court order last summer which granted them permission to eavesdrop at Trump’s aide.
The FISA warrant was obtained as part of an FBI ongoing investigation into the so-called links between Trump campaign members and Russian officials.
Carter Page was pretty excited at the news, saying that the truth is finally coming out:
“I have done nothing wrong. I have no concerns. I was an obvious target because no one has been more thoughtful and methodical in their criticism of the Clinton/Obama administration foreign policy. This confirms all of my suspicions about unjustified, politically motivated government surveillance. I have nothing to hide.”
Carter Page was a low level aide in Trump’s campaign, a foreign policy adviser of sorts and according to “sources”, he never even met Donald Trump personally.
The FISA warrant was granted after the FBI convinced the court that there’s probable cause about Carter Page acting as an agent of a foreign power, i.e. Russia in our case.
The FISA application for the surveillance order claims that Carter Page was in direct contact with Russian operatives in 2013, but at this point, he hasn’t been charged nor accused of any crime, which is strange to say the least.
Page was hired in a foreign policy adviser position in March of 2016 but he left Trump Train in September due to stories coming out based on basically fake news, a reference to the so called Trump Dossier created by Christopher Steele (read pissgate).
The ninety day warrant was extended at least once so there you have it, it’s as official as it gets: the FBI “wiretapped” at least 1 of Trump’s associates. And we’re only ~ 80 days into The Donald’s presidency.
What the MSM is doing with the Russian “collusion” story will go down as one of the biggest “maddows” in American media history, a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing but a Jeff Bezos wind-egg farting like an expired balloon into the ground where it will lay, limp and lifeless, like a used condom on a dirty urban riverbank.
