Who will be indicted for illegally obtaining FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign, specifically Carter Page?
The Washington Examiner has reported that all four of the FISA warrants obtained to spy on President Donald Trump’s campaign during his 2016 campaign and the early days of his presidency were illegally obtained.
The Inspector General Michael Horowitz has completed his investigation and is getting ready to release a report of his findings, including the legality of the FISA warrants. It has long been suspected that the warrant applications used false information from a dossier compiled by Michael Steele and that those involved in the application process knew the dossier was unverified.
Memos obtained by Citizens United also showed that Steele was pressured to get his research out before the 2016 presidential election, showing a political motive for the dossier. The pressure came just days before the dossier was used for the first FISA application.
The FISA warrant was renewed three more times in 2017 without any new information or reasoning. Now it looks like everything that led to the Mueller investigation was based on lies. Are you really all that surprised?
