Pres. Trump To Release FISA Warrants Used to Surveil Ex-Aide Carter Page

President Trump promises to release the unredacted Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) documents associated with the roots of the Russia probe.

The president made the remarks during an interview with Hannity on Wednesday saying he has plans to “absolutely release” the warrants.

President Trump went on to say his legal counsel originally advised against the move citing it as possible obstruction of justice.

The president clarified he was glad he waited but will be releasing the warrants “at the right time.”

This comes after redacted versions of the FISA documents were already released showing the FBI spied on former Trump aide Carter Page based on information provided by an ex-British spy, Christopher Steele.

Steele worked for a company funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

The FBI never found anything incriminating on the part of Page, even after obtaining the FISA warrants.

This comes just days after the Attorney General William Barr released a summary of the Mueller report suggesting there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The full report is expected to be released in the coming weeks, not months, after a comprehensive redaction process.

According to South Carolina Senator, Lindsey Graham, all details that do not threaten the law or national security will be released to the public.
