Devin Nunes’ memo exposed the FBI spying on the Trump campaign as the biggest scandal in American political history.
It was a scheme to rig the election in Hillary’s favor and then destroy Trump’s Presidency.
And now Trey Gowdy just asked the one question the FBI did not want anyone to ask.
The Democrats released their own memo to try and knock down the allegations made by Nunes.
Their memo claimed the FBI had other corroborating evidence they used to obtain a FISA warrant against Page.
But Gowdy destroyed that line of argument.
Fox News reports:
“South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy said the FBI didn’t need to go to great lengths to get a FISA surveillance warrant of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Gowdy responded to reports of other possible evidence besides an unverified Russia dossier and a Yahoo! article that the FBI could have used to obtain the warrant.
“If you had a bunch of other reasons to get a FISA warrant to get [surveillance on] Carter Page… why didn’t you use it?” Gowdy asked.
Gowdy maintained that he is not taking the position that the FBI should not have sought information on Page, just that he was unsure whether a dossier partially funded by an opposition candidate was the strongest case the government could make.”
He noted that Page was not a polished speaker in TV interviews, and nor was he some James Bond figure.
Fox News also reports:
“He said Page does “not know how to stop talking” during interviews and is not a high-profile or skilled international figure.
“He’s not Jason Bourne, he’s not James Bond,” Gowdy said, referring to famous fictional spies created by Robert Ludlum and Ian Fleming respectively.
“If the FBI wanted to investigate him, fine,” he said, going on to question the use of “opposition research” in a dossier if there were more reputable sources of concerning information about Page.”
In addition, Russian agents were caught on a wiretap in 2013 referring to Page as an idiot after a failed attempt to recruit him.
In fact, in that case, Page ended up working with the FBI in subsequent interviews about the Russian spy ring.
Two Russians were charged with violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act as a result of Page’s cooperation.
It’s clear the Democrat memo was a misdirection play.
The main evidence used to get the warrant to spy on Page was the fake news dossier.
That makes the warrant a sham.
