  • Trump says Carter Page documents show DoJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation misled courts

On CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, Page called the documents a "complete joke" and insisted they overstated his relationships with the Russian government.

"I've never been an agent of a foreign power by any stretch of the imagination", Page said on CNN.

Page himself ducked questions about what, exactly, his connections to Russian Federation had been.

Tapper questioned Page over the scope of the allegations against him, noting that judges who operate under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act agreed probable cause existed for the wiretapping. "I mean, this is really nothing". "There was nothing in terms of nefarious behavior". Steele, a Russian Federation expert, has reported that he believed Trump was being "blackmailed".

"The president gets this confused".

"I don't think they did anything wrong", Rubio said.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said the documents "affirm that our nation faced a profound counterintelligence threat prior to the 2016 election" and that authorities "took appropriate steps". "It could be us next". "The only plot here is the plot to interfere in the our election by the Russians".

The new documents about the wiretap on Page seemed to be at the top of the president's mind. Mr Trump has labelled the investigation a "witch hunt".

Page, an American oil industry consultant who served as a foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump as he was campaigning for president, has been under investigation by US intelligence agencies including the CIA, NSA and FBI, for alleged contact he has had with Russian officials under USA sanctions.

'Republicans must get tough now.

Donald Trump's former foreign policy adviser Carter Page says claims he worked on Russia's behalf are "ridiculous".

New Zealand matched Fiji's physicality and created opportunity to capitalise on rare errors from the Olympic gold medallists. France next play New Zealand , who opened their campaign with an easy 29-5 victory against Russian Federation .

The former released a memo claiming Democratic-funded research prompted the Federal Bureau of Investigation to spy on Mr Page and that the agency was not sufficiently candid with the court about its sourcing.

The documents offer few clues about the scope of that surveillance.

Goodlatte said he has viewed the documents without most of the redactions and that it is "critically important" for the public to be able to do the same. "They did not spy on the campaign from anything and everything that I have seen".

The application says that a significant goal of the request is to "collect foreign intelligence information as part of the FBI's investigation of this target". Whole sections in the application - detailing the FBI's justification for believing Page was a Russian agent - are blacked out.

The publication is also sure to fuel the political fight between Republicans and Democrats over the propriety of the surveillance and how it was legally justified. An initial Republican memo about the FISA warrant also claimed that the dossier's origins were not mentioned in the warrant.

"The FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government", the application said.

Earlier this month the Justice Department charged 12 Russian intelligence offers with acts related to Russia's hacking of the DNC's emails and targeting of state election systems.

But Mr Trump's tweets did not address the fact that the FISA application revealed its sourcing at length and was approved by a judge, before being renewed three times by three other judges, all appointed by Republican presidents.

"I don't think it was one of the best moments in the administration", Rubio said, adding that he appreciated Trump's later attempt to walk back his remark.

'So they look at all this information and say we have a guy here who is always in Russian Federation, brags about Russian Federation, and we have reason to believe and they list those reasons why this is someone we should be watching and they follow the legal process by which to do so, ' Rubio continued. But agents disclosed to the court that Steele "was likely looking for information that could be used to discredit" Trump's campaign. "So Putin knows going in, what the price of doing so is". "It is negligent with our national security for us not to know".
