The president's tweets were also full of misleading and a few false statements.
The tweets on the Page FISA warrant contributed to the litany of complaints he made about the FBI's investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign, which he has repeatedly dismissed as a "witch hunt" and a "hoax." "and insisted that there were no collusion.
The first FISA liability requirement of October 2016 and the three extensions – the first FISA imprisonment documents to be publicly released – were able to resolve the larger collusion issues, but they showed in plain English the FBI's argument for monitoring Page ,
The motion states that the FBI "believes that Page has been targeted recruitment by the Russian government," and that the office believes "this side has collaborated with the Russian government and conspired."
And in some cases The application undermined arguments that Trump and his conservative allies did not surpass monitoring Page, including a memorandum from Devin Nunes, a California Republican, the House Intelligence Chairman.
Here's a breakdown of Trump's tweets:
The FISA Warrant On the page taken on the site, the FBI allowed monitoring on the side. However, when the arrest warrant was filed in October 2016, Page had already left the campaign, which made it unlikely that the FBI used the FISA application page to get into Trump's campaign.
Trump's tweets bet Continuing on Sunday – and again Monday morning, by attacking the opposition research dossier written by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele] Trump rightly believes that the dossier is cited in the FISA application as "Source No. 1", which contains a significant portion of the unrevised evidence in the Warrant application for Page – although another substantial portion of the evidence is contained in the application
Trump and his allies have taken advantage of the fact that Steele's research is partly due to The law firm Perkins Coie was paid by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign, which the Ministry of Justice did not properly disclose the political nature of funding the FISA court
Nunes memorandum noted that the FISA application not the role of the DNC, the Clinton campaign, or any other y party / funding campaign to Steele efforts. "
" No. The court has not been made aware of this, "Nunes told Fox News in February.
But the edited documents released on Saturday show that the FBI had claimed that Steele had been paid by an unknown US person Trying to discredit Trump's campaign "The FBI speculates that the identified US person is likely to seek information that could be used to discredit candidate # 1's campaign," warns Trump's reference.
True, That the FISA document contains no reference to any specific people, including Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, which is the US person that Steele hired to conduct the research, but that's because of the FISA documents are written in such a way that identities of people or institutions are left out in the context of a process of "minimizing", the other Americans from the detention order hl trying to keep.
The FISA arrest warrant states that while the information was likely collected to discredit the Trump campaign, the acidic ce is considered credible because Steele had an earlier relationship with the FBI, including exposing corruption in FIFA ,
Trump has repeatedly questioned the Obama Administration's response to Russian hacking, and the Obama administration has acknowledged that they can do more – and probably should have – to counteract Russians in 2016.
But the idea that the Trump campaign was not told about the threat is not true.
Trump was personally warned in August 2016 by senior US intelligence officials that foreign opponents, including Russia, would probably do so CNN previously reportedly attempted to infiltrate his team or gather information about his campaign.
Trump was also told that the Russian government was trying to interfere in the election and that Russia would play a direct role in hacking the DNC, NBC played N ews reported in October 2016.
Trump's Monday morning Tweet claims that the opposition research dossier has launched the Russia investigation – the argument that if the dossier is discredited, the same goes for the investigation of the FBI in Russia, which became special adviser for Robert Mueller.
But the dossier did not initiate the investigation in Russia.
The FBI launched a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia in July 2016. The Australian diplomat reports a conversation with Trump's former foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, who told the diplomat that Russia had harmful information about Clinton ,
E Accused FBI agent Peter Strzok said earlier this month and got into controversy with the Republicans about the first few days of the investigation several months before filing Page FISA applications.
Nunes' memo does not dispute this point
In this Tweet Monday morning Trump quotes the Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch. The tweet indicated that the pagewarrant was classified "for concealing the wrongdoing of the FBI and the Department of Justice."
But every FISA arrest warrant is classified.
It was released only for the first time, only with heavy setbacks on requests from the Freedom of Information Act and complaints from news organizations and lawyers, including the conservative Judicial Watch and after the declassification of details from the FISA proposals in the Nunes Memo and a Competing Memo from Democrats of the House Intelligence Committee
Republicans have Accused the FBI and the Justice Department of Using Redactions in Several Cases To protect embarrassing information from Congress, the idea that the FISA arrest warrant was classified is the rule, not the exception.
