Justice Department Believes It Lacked Legal Basis for Continued Surveillance of Trump Adviser
WASHINGTON—The Justice Department now believes it should have discontinued its secret surveillance of one-time Trump campaign adviser Carter Page far earlier than it did, according to a new court filing unsealed Thursday.
The Justice Department said in a December letter to the secret court that oversees surveillance of suspected foreign spies that it lacked probable cause to continue surveillance of Mr. Page in two of the four surveillance applications it sought against him.
The government began surveillance of Mr. Page in late 2016, after he left the Trump campaign. It ultimately obtained a warrant and three subsequent renewals.
The Justice Department declined to comment.
But they knowingly did it anyway meaning they knowingly lied thus perjuring themselves. And they are still walking free. More proof of a two tiered justice system.
When you think it’s butter, but it’s not …
When it’s marked as Secret and then it’s not, it’s declass.
@another vet: It is much deeper that that. There should not have been the first two submissions because they knew Page was one of ours!
@Randy: But Page was the only guy in the Trump orbit known to have dealt with Russians it followed their fairytale narrative.
But what is to be done? The Justice Department said it would sequester all the material it collected against Mr. Page pending further internal review of the matter.
Another swamp review of itself.
Wow, DoJ… ya think?
