On Saturday government watchdog organization Judicial Watch finally received documents related to the FBI’s FISA court warrants against one-time advisor to the 2016 Trump presidential campaign Carter Page.
The documents, requested more than a year ago under terms of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), were sought by the group over suspicions that the government went to the super-secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court with less-than-truthful information regarding Page and the Trump campaign in regards to alleged “Russian collusion.”
Turns out that Judicial Watch’s hunch may have been spot-on.
For one thing, as The National Sentinel reported, the documents — which are heavily redacted — appear to implicate former FBI No. 2 counterintelligence official Peter Strzok wasn’t truthful with members of Congress recently during a joint hearing of the House Judiciary and Government Oversight committees when he testified he had nothing to do with FISA court requests regarding Page:
It took a year for Judicial Watch to receive those documents.
And though they arrived heavily redacted, there are already a few bombshells that can be gleaned from them.
For one, anti-Trump FBI thug Peter Strzok may have perjured himself in his recent testimony before a joint hearing of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees when he claimed he had nothing to do with obtaining those FISA warrants against Page.
During his recent contentious hearing, Strzok swore he provided no substantive input on the application.
He claimed that he didn’t provide any evidence in the warrant application and wasn’t involved in actually presenting the application to the FISA court for approval, according to sources, The Gateway Pundit reported, citing The Daily Beast’s Betsy Woodruff.
The documents indicate otherwise. (Related: FISA memo released — bombshell report reveals MASSIVE Deep State conspiracy to keep Donald Trump out of the White House.)
“BREAKING: Newly released FISA application shows Strzok did, in fact, use Carter Page’s Sept. 2016 letter to Comey as a “pretext” to open investigation on him, as Strzok suggested in an email to Page in Sept re “Crossfire FISA.” Yet Strzok just swore he had nothing to do with Page FISA,” investigative journalist Paul Sperry tweeted, citing the documents.

For his part, Page told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday that the documents prove what a “complete joke” it was to obtain a FISA warrant in the first place.
“This is so ridiculous. It’s just beyond words. You know, it’s — you’re talking about misleading the courts. It’s just so misleading going through the 400 plus page documents, where do we even begin? It’s literally a complete joke,” he said.
“I’ve never been an agent of the foreign power in any — by any stretch of the imagination. You know, I may have back in the G20 when they were getting ready to do that in St. Petersburg, I might have participated in a few meetings that a lot of people including people from the Obama administration were sitting in on in Geneva and Paris and et cetera,” he continued. “I’ve never been anywhere near what’s being described here.”
Being from CNN Tapper nevertheless pressed Page, asking him about being an “adviser” to Vladimir Putin’s government. Page called that “spin” and sitting in on some meetings didn’t make him an “advisor.”
It’s “way over the top.”
Left-wing commentators and media outlets are nevertheless spinning findings in the documents as proving the FBI had legitimate reasons to investigate Page’s alleged Kremlin ties. But what’s noteworthy is that before he became associated with the Trump campaign no one in the Obama administration paid him much attention.
There’s little doubt, based on the findings of Judicial Watch and others, that Page is clean and Strzok may have perjured himself.
The question is: What’s AG Jeff Sessions going to do about it?
