Trump Administration Releases Classified Warrants For FBI Wiretap Of Carter Page

The heavily redacted 412-page document includes the agency's initial October 2016 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant application to surveil Page, along with three renewal applications filed in January, April, and June of 2017.

The House Oversight Committee chairman's comments came a day after the Justice Department released documents related to the surveillance of Page.

"The FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government", the application says.

Page, a foreign policy adviser for the campaign, acknowledged that he may have participated in some meetings with Russians, but not at the level he's accused of.

"House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Saturday that 'these documents provide clear evidence of 'Russia's coordination with Carter Page, ' a high-ranking Trump campaign official, 'to undermine and improperly and illegally influence the 2016 USA presidential election".

However, after allegations emerged in the so-called Trump dossier that he had served as an intermediary between Russian officials and the president's campaign as they worked to advance Mr Trump's presidential efforts, Mr Page resigned from his role.

Democrats, however, say the FISA warrant on Page was justified because of his contacts with Russian Federation, and they argue that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department followed proper procedure in seeking and getting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to approve the warrant. "This is many, many people over two administrations, four judges appointed by Republicans, over and over, believing that you were an agent of a foreign power".

It also caps a week dominated by Trump's extraordinary inaugural summit with Vladimir Putin, at which he seemed to take at face value the Russian leader's denial of election meddling, dismissing the findings of his own intelligence chiefs.

Page, 47, has denied being a Russian agent.

"There was a lot of reasons unrelated to the dossier why they wanted to look at Carter Page".

"I've never been an agent of a foreign power by any stretch of the imagination", Page said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Responding to the newly released FISA documents on Saturday, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) wrote: "That the FISA materials hurt the GOP narrative is not surprising since Rep. Devin Nunes admitted he never read the source documents on Carter Page".

In a 2013 letter, Page described himself as an "informal adviser' to the Kremlin, but now he told CNN "it's really spin" to call him an adviser".

"Well let's see what they are referring to specifically", Page answered.

Page has not been charged.

The charges form part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into United States intelligence findings that Russians conspired to tilt the election in Mr Trump's favour, and whether any of his campaign aides colluded.
