FBI Kept Detailed Information on Carter Page Away From FISA Court

The weak case against Carter Page by the FBI looks worse than a weak case. This looks like a coordinated attempt to mislead the FISA Court and use Carter Page as an opening to spy on the Donald Trump campaign. If these facts hold up and are brought to the courts, there are a lot of former Barack Obama officials that are going to be held accountable. Be sure you catch the list of conspirators in this article.

They have been made public only in redacted form, professing evidence that Page was “recruited” by Russian intelligence and had “coordinated” with the Russian government. But “that’s a mischaracterization of the facts in the case,” a congressional source said.

As first reported by RealClearInvestigations after Page became a central focus of the Trump-Russia investigation, court filings that emerged from the earlier case show the Russian government wasn’t interested in cultivating Page as a spy. Rather, it tried to use him as a source….
