Barack Obama’s Deep State is still scrambling to contain the fallout from the release of the FBI’s application for a FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
The 400-plus page document contained multiple bombshells that confirmed President Trump’s fear that the Obama administration conspired to weaponize the intelligence community against his campaign.
But Devin Nunes has identified one secret the FBI kept buried that could bring down Obama’s Deep State for good.
The FISA warrant application was heavily redacted.
Large sections of the document were blacked out, and this is preventing the American people from seeing the true extent of the FBI’s abuse of power and their corruption.
But members of Congress have seen the application in its entirety.
And they are sounding the alarm that the FBI’s misconduct is even worse than anyone imagined.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes tweeted out an article from The Federalist describing how the FBI used false and misleading information to secure the warrant against Page.
Nunes used the tweet to describe the article as real news and demanded the Department of Justice release the application without any redactions.
Catch up with your real news here from @FDRLST by @MZHemingway…btw time to eliminate rest of redactions!!! https://t.co/4kdWQvivJ8

In the application, the FBI falsely claimed the source of their information – Christopher Steele’s Russia dossier – was verified.
It was not.
The FBI also used news articles such as a September 2016 Yahoo article by Michael Isikoff to corroborate the allegations set forth in Steele’s dossier.
But Steele was the source for Isikoff’s article.
The FBI also lied when they stated that “Source #1” – which was Steele – had not briefed the media on his findings.
This was 100% not true.
In addition, the FBI misled the court as to the source of Steele’s funding.
A judge may have evaluated the FBI’s evidence differently had the FBI been more clear that Fusion GPS – which hired Steele – had been paid by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte seconded these allegations in an interview on Fox News’ Sunday Futures.
Chairman Goodlatte stated that the applications should be released unredacted declaring, “It is critically important that the American people have the opportunity to see most of the rest of those documents.”
Goodlatte — who has read the unredacted version of the FBI’s FISA application — stated that when the American people see the entire application, “They can judge for themselves, but I will tell you it does not support the issuance of a warrant against Mr. Page.”
Anti-Trump journalists, Democrats and Never Trump Republicans are trying to sweep the FBI’s massive spying scandal under the rug.
They know that if the American people saw the entire picture of the shenanigans the FBI engaged in during the 2016 campaign, they would immediately demand special counsel Mueller’s investigation to come to an end.
There would also be a massive outcry to prosecute those officials in the Justice Department and FBI who signed off on employing the surveillance powers of the federal government as a partisan tool on behalf of the Hillary Clinton campaign in order to rig the election.
