Trending on CNSNews.By Nikki Schwab, U. Political Reporter For Dailymail. In a memo that was released Friday, Republicans had tried to argue that the FBI and the Justice Department did not disclose the political origins of the 'dirty dossier' when requesting to snoop on Page, indicating bias. Adam Schiff, said neither presidential candidate was named in the warrant, because their identities were 'masked.
Schiff and the Democrats have been pressing for their own memo to be released, arguing that it outlines some information that the Republican memo selectively left out. House Intelligence Committee ranking member, Rep. Adam Schiff said that Hillary Clinton left and Donald Trump right were referred to as 'candidate one' and 'candidate two' in the FISA warrant, which is why Clinton wasn't directly identified as financing the 'dirty dossier'.
The dueling memos have to do with FISA warrants that allowed the government to snoop on Carter Page pictureda former Trump associate with ties to Russia.
Last night, the House Intelligence Committee voted in favor of releasing the minority memo, and it's now been sent over to President Trump. For one, Schiff argued that it wasn't true the FISA court didn't know the dossier came from a politically biased source, it's just that the warrant didn't disclose names. The request to monitor Page was made on October 21,in the waning days of the presidential election, so the candidates involved could likely be identified by the process of elimination, Schiff suggested.
President Trump cited an op-ed penned by the Wall Street Journal's editorial board about the contents of the Republican memo, which warned that the FBI 'became a tool of anti-Trump political actors'. Schiff also revealed that the uncorroborated, salacious material found in the dossier was not put before the FISA court.
The Intelligence Committee's ranking member said that some of his colleagues had assumed that it was because they hadn't read the classified, underlying material the warrant was based upon. Schiff said the committee plans to release a transcript of deliberations between lawmakers as they discussed releasing the Democratic memo Monday night. Last week the same committee stalled Democratic efforts to have their memo released in tandem with the one penned by Republican staff.
President Trump welcomed the findings in the Republican memo with open arms, tweeting Saturday that, 'This memo totally vindicates "Trump" in probe. Their was no Collusion and there was no Obstruction the word now used because, after one year of looking endlessly and finding NOTHING, collusion is dead ,' the president added.
On Monday, Trump also tore into Schiff personally, while showing support for the committee's chair, Rep. Devin Nunes, a California Republican. Must be stopped! Talking to CNN Tuesday, Schiff joked that he thought this latest nickname was better than its previous iteration. With the committee now green-lighting the minority memo's release, sending it on to Trump, Schiff said his bigger concern was that the Republicans would selectively redact it.

Replies 7 Views A moment ago Montrovant.The FBI on Saturday made public redacted documents related to the electronic surveillance of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, who was at the center of a controversy over how the FBI sought the secretive warrant.
The documents released Saturday appear to discount claims made by some Republicans that the FBI failed to properly disclose sources of information used to seek the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant, and it shows that authorities used other sources of information besides the Steele "dossier" in the application, which was granted by a judge. The warrant, which is heavily redacted in several areas, was released on Saturday following Freedom of Information Act litigation launched by The New York Times and other media organizations and it was released with the approval of a judge.
The warrant contains many previously reported allegations about Page and his interactions with Russian interests. Page spent a few months advising the campaign of President Donald Trump. Witch Hunt Rigged, a Scam! And it backs up the claim that the FBI used information from other sources that were wholly uninvolved with Steele, including published reports.
The FBI suspected Page was a Russian agent, something he vociferously denies, even as he acknowledges having a relationship with the Kremlin. NBC News has reported that four separate federal judges signed off on the surveillance of Page and subsequent renewals.
On Sunday, Page strongly denied being an agent of a foreign power and called the claims in the FISA warrant "so ridiculous" and "spin. Page did acknowledge participating in meetings as an informal adviser to the Russian government around ahead of the G20 Summit in Saint Petersburg. Petersburg, I might have participated in a few meetings that a lot of people, including people from the Obama administration, were sitting on, and Geneva, Paris, et cetera, but I've never been anywhere near what's being described here," he said.
Page has not been charged with any crime. The FISA warrant process is one of the most secretive processes in government. Page is a central figure in the Nunes memowhich alleges that the FBI withheld key information from the judges who approved and renewed the bureau's application to place Page under secret surveillance. The memo, released in February was written by Republican staffers on the House Intelligence Committee and is named after the committee's chairman, Rep.
Devin Nunes, R-Calif. The memo has been criticized as partisan. A memo subsequently released by Democrats claimed that information from the dossier compiled by Steele, whose work was funded by a law firm connected to Hillary Clinton's campaign, was a small part of the case Justice Department officials laid out in seeking the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court's permission to eavesdrop on Page and in renewal applications.
The New York Times reported in May that at least one government informant met several times with Carter Page, and George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser. It was revealed last October that Papadopoulos had struck a cooperation agreement with Mueller, pleading guilty to lying to federal agents about his contacts with Kremlin-connected Russians.
The controversy of the FISA warrant for surveillance on Page comes amid an investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the presidential campaign and whether there was any collusion with people connected to the Trump campaign, among other matters. Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion took place, and on Saturday tweeted "No Collusion, No Obstruction," and the president again called the Mueller investigation a "witch hunt.
News Business World Sports Podcasts. Follow NBC News.Comey is set to meet with Congress on Friday, testimony sure to be riddled with the weaseliest of evasions. The House Republicans are calling on Trump to declassify those e-mails. Sources tell me the targeted documents may provide the most damning evidence to date of potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act FISAevidence that has been kept from the majority of members of Congress for more than two years.
The email exchanges show the FBI was aware — before it secured the now-infamous warrant — that there were intelligence community concerns about the reliability of the main evidence used to support it: the Christopher Steele dossier.
The exchanges also indicate FBI officials were aware that Steele, the former MI6 British intelligence operative then working as a confidential human source for the bureau, had contacts with news media reporters before the FISA warrant was secured.
So Comey knew that at least someone inside the Justice Department thought the application tainted and signed it anyways.
In the weeks before the election, John Brennan at the CIA, Peter Strzok at the FBI, Jonathan Winer at the State Department, among others, were leaking mentions of the Trump-Russia investigation to the press, which Hillary aides like Jennifer Palmieri then picked up and disseminated, passing off their own self-generated oppo research smears as objective news items.
That is of course to be expected of a campaign. These issues are why the FBI email chain, kept from most members of Congress for the past two years, suddenly landed on the declassification list.
It will shed light on how something as monstrously stupid as a FISA application stitched together from the smears of one campaign against another campaign could happen without serious dissent. It will probably show that someone weakly raised an objection or two but was shushed by all the partisan liberal lawyers and agents Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, and Comey had hired. Holder was famous for not letting anyone but flagged liberals work at the Justice Department. Subscribe Login Logout Edit Account.

Hillary Clinton and Trump were 'masked' in FISA warrant
He had it made in the shade, said my complacent conservative friends. The result was brutal. But we do not have to look back 32 years to see how unruly the leftwing mob can be. Recall the recent fate of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Graham calls for special counsel to investigate FBI's handling of Clinton emails, FISA warrant
Only his courage and unscotchable determinate saved him. The simple fact is that the conservatives are often slow on the draw against the American left. It is time for the conservatives to rally around him.In three of those applications, the FBI couldn't confirm that Woods documentation ever existed. The other 25 applications contained an average of 20 assertions not properly supported with Woods materials; one application contained 65 unsupported claims.
The review encompassed the work of eight field offices over the past five years in several cases. Not a single application from the past five years reviewed by the inspector general was up to snuff. In the piece, Rangappa credulously asserted that FISA applications, after a preliminary exhaustive review, travel "to the Justice Department where attorneys from the National Security Division comb through the application to verify all the assertions made in it.
Rangappa, who repeated the same message on-air multiple times, was not alone in the media in propping up the FISA process. A single delegate had proposed a sweeping amendment to change the GOP platform to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine, in a major shift from the Obama administration's policy; parts of that amendment were rejected.
But, the Post's opinion piece framed the development as nefarious, and a possible smoking gun. In a Page FISA application, the FBI went on to cite Rogin's article word-for-word -- without quotation marks, but with a footnoted citation -- as evidence that the Trump campaign could be working with the Russians in an illicit manner.
Adam Schiff, D-Calif. Devin Nunes, R-Calif. Then, the FBI included Page's contacts with Russians in the warrant application as evidence he was a foreign "agent," without disclosing to the secret surveillance court that Page was voluntarily working with the CIA concerning those foreign contacts.
That disclosure was insignificant and incomplete, Nunes alleged -- and contrary to Schiff and Beaucahmp's claims, Horowitz ultimately supported Nunes' findings. Connecticut U. Lindsey Graham, R-S. Former Trump adviser Carter Page. Gregg Re is a lawyer and editor based in Los Angeles.Ask her how that worked out - she did better with Crazy Bernie. Republicans must get tough now. An illegal Scam!
Source 1 was the major source. Avoided talking about it being the Clinton campaign behind it. Not about Carter Page. So President Obama knew about Russia before the Election. Why didn't he do something about it? Why didn't he tell our campaign? Because it is all a big hoax, that's why, and he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win!!! This is a Clinton Campaign document. It was a fraud and a hoax designed to target Trump Chat with us in Facebook Messenger. Find out what's happening in the world as it unfolds.
More Videos The President's tweets were also full of misleading and several false statements. The tweets on the Page FISA warrant added to the litany of complaints he's raised about the FBI's investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign, which he's repeatedly dismissed as a "witch hunt" and a "hoax" and insisted there was no collusion. The initial October FISA warrant application and the three renewals -- the first ever FISA warrant documents to be publicly released -- did not resolve those larger collusion questions, but they did show in plain English the FBI's argument for conducting surveillance on Page.
The application states that the FBI "believes Page has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian government," and that the bureau "believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government. And in several cases, the application undercut arguments that Trump and his conservative allies have made about the surveillance on Page, including a memo from House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, a California Republican.
