Trump attacks 'Mueller Witch Hunt' in new tweetstorm

Justice Dept. releases FISA documents on Carter Page

"Since the Justice Department does not have possession of any transcripts of hearings related to Page and because such transcripts would provide the public with a complete and unbiased look at the role of this court, Judicial Watch respectfully requests this court make public all transcripts of hearings regarding applications for or renewal of FISA warrants related to Page", the request explains.

"The FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government", the October 2016 application to the court states. In 2016, Conway was appointed to the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by U.S. Chief Justice John Robert, a President George W. Bush appointee, on a rotating basis.

The application identifies Page by name and says that he engaged in "clandestine intelligence activities" on behalf of Russia and had been the target of Russian government recruitment.

Trump tweeted Sunday night that President Barack Obama knew about Russian meddling before the 2016 election, but didn't tell the Trump campaign "because it is all a big hoax".

The documents released over the weekend were part of officials' application for a warrant to the secretive foreign intelligence surveillance court.

Page's denial on Sunday (Monday NZT) was his first public response to the release on Saturday of a wiretap application that said he engaged in "clandestine intelligence activities" on behalf of Russian Federation.

Trump also asserted, without evidence, that his campaign had been illegally spied upon by the Federal Bureau of Investigation . While he said Page was no "James Bond", the adviser had connections to the Kremlin that predated his involvement with Trump.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders sought to clarify the president's tweet Monday morning by arguing that the president wasn't expressing doubt on the intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation meddled but was instead "referring to the claim that his campaign had anything to do with it". The documents also refer to other members of Trump's campaign team "perhaps" being involved with Russian officials and intelligence services during the campaign. "An illegal Scam!" Trump tweeted. It was carried out under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which allows the government to monitor communications when it can persuade a judge that someone is working as an agent of a foreign power. Released online under the Freedom of Information Act, the documents note the political ties to Steele's work but said it still believed some of his report to be "credible".

'I think that's different from spying on a campaign, in fact that the Trump campaign has said on numerous occasions that Carter Page was not a major player in their campaign'.

Page has denied being a Russian agent, and he has not been charged with any crime.

"I don't think it's part of any broader plot", Rubio said.

President Trump on Sunday said he had a "great" meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and said his campaign was "illegally spied upon" in 2016, putting him at odds with a senator in his own party. "It is so bad it screams out at you.' On the whole FISA scam which led to the rigged Mueller Witch Hunt!" And that is the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation used as part of its evidence in making the case to the court that there was probable cause here against Mr. Page that used information supplied by Christopher Steele of the famous - maybe notorious - Steele dossier. Page denied this to CNN. But Clinton's closest aides said they didn't learn about the research until after the election, which is probable considering they never raised the allegations publicly.
