Federal Bureau of Investigation believed Trump campaign aide Carter Page was recruited by Russians

T he more than 400 pages of documents include the original FISA warrant sought in October 2016 and three renewals.

Referring to the Page documents, he said: "As usual they are ridiculously heavily redacted but confirm with little doubt that the Department of "Justice" and Federal Bureau of Investigation misled the courts". Instead, it acknowledged events previously reported by the New York Times: A former Trump foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, came under the scrutiny of investigators in July 2016 after boasting that Russian Federation had dirt on then-candidate Hillary Clinton to an Australian diplomat in London.

The FBI told the court that Page "established relationships with Russian government officials, including Russian intelligence officers", and Page "has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government".

"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", Rubio said.

Rubio also said Page has "bragged" about his connections to Russian Federation in the past, but became a target for investigators when he joined the Trump campaign in a minor role.

In March 2017, before news of the FISA warrant became public, Page sent a letter to the Senate intelligence committee saying he may have been wiretapped during the time he spent at Trump Tower for the campaign.

Given the title and his eponymous character, it's safe to infer that Jackson will play a bigger role in this as his alias Mr. Jackson , Sarah Paulson , and Bruce Willis is set in a world first created by the director in the 2000 film Unbreakable .

He also said that the warrant application, which was released by the Justice Department on Saturday, served as proof that "the whole FISA warrant process needs to be looked at".

The FBI released documents part of an investigation into whether Page conspired with the Russian government to undermine the 2016 U.S. election. In April, the DOJ said they were "processing for potential redaction and release certain [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] materials related to Carter Page", after watchdog group Judicial Watch and several other organizations filed similar lawsuits.

"Witch Hunt Rigged, a Scam!" They also say the warrant is tainted - based on the opposition research dossier on Trump and Russian Federation that was paid for by Democrats - and that because the FISA warrant helped launch the FBI investigation into Trump and Russian Federation, the whole investigation is tainted.

House Democrats were quick to say that the documents bolstered their arguments.

Ms Pelosi added that the Republican's should stop trying to hinder the investigations "for the sake of our national security and our democracy".

Robert Mueller's investigation is ongoing, but so far has not proved any evidence of collusion between President Trump and Russian officials to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
