Top Republican lawmaker said the FBI failed to provide a federal surveillance court with important evidence

For a long while now, the actions of the FBI in front of the FISA Court have been questioned by Republican Congressmen. It has been said that the Federal Agents only presented those items that it felt would get what it wanted from the Court. What the Bureau wanted was a warrant against candidate Donald Trump aide George Papadopoulos as it sought to find a Trump-Russia collusion connection. That connection has never been found or reported to this date. It was also revealed by this Congressman that it was ‘intelligence’ from Australia that was used as leverage with the Court. Here is what has just been revealed.

As Written and Reported By Chuck Ross for the Daily Caller:

  • A top Republican lawmaker said Sunday that the FBI failed to provide a federal surveillance court with evidence that “directly” contracted the bureau’s rationale for opening the Trump-Russia investigation
  • Rep. John Ratcliffe told Fox News that the evidence related to former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos
  • The FBI opened its investigation in July 2016 based on intelligence from the Australian government about Papadopoulos

Republican lawmakers have hinted for months that the FBI failed to provide federal judges on the surveillance court with information that undercut the government’s premise for opening the Trump-Russia probe in 2016.
