FISA Warrant Was Issued To Monitor Trump Associate Carter Page
Carter Page has a long history of connections with Moscow, and he was a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. This article shows that FISA warrants to monitor US citizens are very difficult to obtain. The FBI had to convince the FISA judges that there were reasons to suspect Page of acting as a foreign agent. The FBI has also concluded that it was investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian activities that were used to influence the US election. Carter Page is the first Trump associate to be monitored by the FBI. Other Trump associates had their phone conversations recorded with Russian officials who were being monitored by the FBI.
