Concealed documents at the center of the initial FISA warrants against senior Trump aides may shed new light on recent allegations his campaign was surveilled by the FBI ahead of the 2016 election.
The revelation comes just hours after the Commander-in-Chief met with high-level staffers at the FBI, DOJ, and DNI to discuss new reports the bureau had an “inside man” interacting with his campaign.
“And this meeting is crucial because it will be a major opportunity for the President to order the Justice Department and FBI to turn over classified information requested by the House Intelligence Committee that may finally lead to the answers related to the scope of the FBI’s surveillance on the Trump campaign,” writes Sara Carter.
“So, an option would be to get the classified documents turned over to the Committee and this is what the President demanded in a Saturday Tweet, saying ‘only the release or review of the documents that the House Intelligence Committee (also, Senate Judiciary) is asking for can give the conclusive answers,’” she adds.

DOJ EXPOSÉ: IG Poised to Release BOMBSHELL Report on Clinton Probe
A bombshell report from the Inspector General at the Department of Justice will be sent to Congressional leaders as early as this week; possibly answering key questions over the DOJ’s botched probe into Hillary’s email server.
“The Department of Justice Inspector General has sent what is described as an ‘extremely long and thorough draft’ of the much anticipated report on the FBI and DOJ’s investigation and handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe, this reporter has learned. The detailed report on the FBI’s decision making process into the Clinton investigation could lead to possible criminal referrals for some of the officials involved in the case,” writes Sara Carter.
“Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report, which is expected to be released within the next three to four weeks to the public, has been turned over to current and former officials for review, as first reported in The Wall Street Journal and Washington Post,” she adds.

COMEY’S REVENGE: Former FBI Chief Claims Memo ‘DESTROYED TRUST’ with Intel Community
Former Director of the FBI James Comey weighed-in on the controversial FISA memo released by the House Intelligence Committee Friday afternoon, blasting the document as “dishonest and misleading” and falsely claiming it “exposed” a classified investigation.
The former bureau chief -who was fired by President Trump last year for his botched investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server- posted his comments on social media within minutes of the document’s disclosure.
“That’s it? Dishonest and misleading memo wrecked the House intel committee, destroyed trust with Intelligence Community, damaged relationship with FISA court, and inexcusably exposed classified investigation of an American citizen. For what? DOJ & FBI must keep doing their jobs,” Comey tweeted.

While Comey may found the memo’s revelations “boring,” the explosive document shows the FBI and Department of Justice used the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ to secure FISA court warrants against “at least one member” of the Trump campaign during the run-up to the 2016 election.
