Kirsters Baish| In some breaking news, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has revealed a bombshell about Spygate today. In a court filing completed this week, the DOJ admitted that there were never hearings on former Trump advisor Carter Page inside a FISA court.
The corrupt Obama-led FBI obtained a FISA warrant and three FISA renewals on Page… all to spy on the Trump campaign.
‘[N]o such hearings were held with respect to the acknowledged FISA applications. Accordingly, no responsive hearing transcripts exist.’
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today announced that in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, the Justice Department (DOJ) admitted in a court filing last night that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court held no hearings on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) spy warrant applications targeting Carter Page, a former Trump campaign part-time advisor who was the subject of four controversial FISA warrants.
In the filing the Justice Department finally revealed that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court held no hearings on the Page FISA spy warrants, first issued in 2016 and subsequently renewed three times:
[National Security Division] FOIA consulted [Office of Intelligence] … to identify and locate records responsive to [Judicial Watch’s] FOIA request…. [Office of Intelligence] determined … that there were no records, electronic or paper, responsive to [Judicial Watch’s] FOIA request with regard to Carter Page. [Office of Intelligence] further confirmed that the [Foreign Surveillance Court] considered the Page warrant applications based upon written submissions and did not hold any hearings.
Tom Fitton, the President of Judicial Watch stated, “It is disturbing that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance courts rubber-stamped the Carter Page spy warrants and held not one hearing on these extraordinary requests to spy on the Trump team. Perhaps the court can now hold hearings on how justice was corrupted by material omissions that Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the DNC, a conflicted Bruce Ohr, a compromised Christopher Steele, and anti-Trumper Peter Strzok were all behind the ‘intelligence’ used to persuade the courts to approve the FISA warrants that targeted the Trump team.”
This past July, Judicial Watch was able to get their hands on more than 400 pages from the “heavily redacted” Carter Page FISA warrant documents. Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe, and Sally Yates had all put their signatures on the FISA applications. They did this despite the fact that the fabricated Trump “dossier” was used as pretext to get the warrants in the first place.
The Obama-run Justice Department and FBI held back vital information regarding Hillary Clinton and the corrupt DNC, who together funded the piece of trash dossier.
It has been reported that the President is working to declassify the FISA renewal from June of 2017. The renewal was signed by the crooked Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as well as then-Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe.
