FBI Email Chain May Spell Big Trouble For Anti-Trump FBI Officials For FISA Abuse

Trouble for Comey and Crew

As Reported by 'The Hill'

A chain of emails between FBI officials regarding FISA applications obtained largely on the basis of the infamous Democrat-funded anti-Trump dossier may contain "the most damning evidence to date of potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)," The Hill's John Solomon reports.

The evidence reportedly contained in the email chain relates to the dossier, compiled by former MI6 British intelligence operative Christopher Steele and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC, which contains salacious and — over two years later — still unverified claims about Trump's supposed connections to Russia. As more details about the process have come to light, it has become more clear that the partisan and highly suspect dossier was the key source of information FBI officials used to obtain the initial warrant to spy on Trump associate Carter Page.

House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) requested right before Thanksgiving that President Trump declassify the emails, which have been withheld from most members of Congress for over two years. According to Solomon's sources, this could spell trouble for some high-profile former FBI officials.

"The email exchanges included then-FBI Director James Comey, key FBI investigators in the Russia probe and lawyers in the DOJ’s national security division, and they occurred in early to mid-October, before the FBI successfully secured a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page," Solomon writes.
