Former Trump campaign associate Carter Page stopped by the ‘Sean Hannity Show’ Monday to discuss the recently revealed FISA application in the run-up to the 2016 election; discussing new details on how Obama’s FBI “misled” authorities to surveil the political insider.
Page made national headlines this week after Congressional investigators were given access to the FISA application at the heart of Mueller’s year-long Russia probe, with those familiar with the material saying the Obama administration relied on the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ to obtain the warrant.
Listen to Page’s initial reaction to the material below:
ARMAGEDDON AGAIN: Pelosi Warns of a ‘CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS’ Over FISA Memo
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continued her all-out war against the House Intelligence Committee and President Trump Friday afternoon, telling reporters the President will spark a “constitutional crisis” should he use the recently released FISA memo to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Pelosi addressed reporters just hours after Congressional leaders publicly disclosed the four-page document; showing the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ was used by the FBI and DOJ to secure FISA warrants to spy on “at least one” senior Trump aide.
“With the memo… [Trump] has abdicated his responsibilities as Commander-in Chief to protect the American people by protecting our intelligence sources and the rest,” Pelosi told CBS News.
“If the President uses this fake, horrible release of distorted intelligence as an excuse to fire [Deputy Attorney General Rod] Rosenstein or [special counsel Robert] Mueller, it could lead to a constitutional crisis.”
The House Minority Leader’s fiery rhetoric comes on the heels of her official statement regarding the memo, where she bizarrely referred to the de-classified material as a “bouquet” from President Trump to Vladimir Putin.
DAY OF RECKONING: Sessions to Open OFFICIAL DOJ Probe into Obama’s FISA ABUSE
Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed Tuesday that the Department of Justice is opening an official inquiry into allegations of abuse and anti-Trump bias in obtaining FISA warrants using DNC-financed material, saying “it will be investigated.”
Sessions was speaking with reporters when he announced his agency’s plans to get to the bottom of accusations revealed in Rep. Devin Nunes’ bombshell memo, claiming the Obama administration and FBI used the Clinton-sourced ‘Trump Dossier’ to obtain surveillance warrants against the Trump campaign.
“Yes, it will be investigated,” said the Attorney General, adding it would be the “appropriate thing” to do following Nunes’ four-page document.
Sessions went on to say his Inspector General “will take that as one of the matters he’ll deal with.”
The Department of Justice’s investigation comes just days after ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff released his “rebuttal” memo, claiming the FBI was well within its rights in “using” the debunked dossier in their FISA application.
