FISA Warrant Proves Deep State Surveillance of Trump Campaign

A newly revealed FISA warrant shows that a Trump campaign advisor was under surveillance by the Deep State during the campaign, adding even more evidence to Trump’s assertion that the Obama administration had targeted him and his campaign.
When President Trump took to Twitter last month to blast the Obama administration for using the intelligence community to wiretap Trump Tower, the liberal mainstream media and the Obama administration used words such as “sensational” and “false.” As more and more information comes out, it is now clear that words such as “delusional” and “dishonest” would best describe those who denied what is now an established fact.
The Washington Post is reporting,
The FBI obtained a secret court order last summer to monitor the communications of an adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, part of an investigation into possible links between Russia and the campaign, law enforcement and other U.S. officials said.
The FBI and the Justice Department obtained the warrant targeting Carter Page’s communications after convincing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge that there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power, in this case Russia, according to the officials.
The target of that warrant was Carter Page, an oil industry consultant and foreign policy analyst named by Trump as a foreign policy advisor during the campaign.
The report by the Post calls this newly disclosed warrant by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) court “the clearest evidence so far that the FBI had reason to believe during the 2016 presidential campaign that a Trump campaign adviser was in touch with Russian agents” and says, “Such contacts are now an investigation into whether the campaign coordinated with the Russian government to swing the election in Trump’s favor.”
