(Worthy News) – The FBI misrepresented its findings to the FISA court on several fronts in order to secure a wiretap to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page, recently released documents show.
“The FBI continued to tell judges that dossier writer Christopher Steele wasn’t the source of a news article the bureau used to corroborate a wiretap application when in fact Steele had publicly acknowledged that he fed the anti-Trump story,” Rowan Scarborough noted in a July 22 report for The Washington Times.
The FBI also failed to tell the FISA court that the Steele dossier was financed by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, according to the documents, obtained in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by Judicial Watch.
The heavily redacted documents also show that the FBI relied on major media stories that were critical of the Trump campaign as evidence in obtaining the FISA warrants. [ Source: World Tribune (Read More…) ]
