The Department of Justice finally released the FBI’s application for a FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
The document confirmed most Trump supporter’s worst fears, but it was still heavily redacted.
Now Devin Nunes and other Republican Congressman are hinting that the FBI could be hiding something even worse.
Nunes and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte are demanding the American people have access to the unredacted FISA application.
Both have access to the complete document and claim that the full application falls short of the threshold necessary to prove the FBI needed to spy on Page.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) told Fox News on Sunday that he has seen the unredacted applications, and that the American people should see them, too.
“It is critically important that the American people have the opportunity to see most of the rest of those documents,” he said.
He said sources and methods used in investigations should be protected, but that most of the information “should easily be seen by the American people.”
“They can judge for themselves, but I will tell you it does not support the issuance of a warrant against Mr. Page,” he said.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) tweeted Monday: “btw time to eliminate rest of redactions!!!”
The application makes it clear the FBI used the Christopher Steele dossier as one of the central pieces of evidence to gain permission to spy on Page.
But key details are redacted.
Critics speculate that the redactions are hiding embarrassing details such as the FBI lying to the court that Steele never briefed the media on his findings when Steele was the source for a September 2016 Yahoo article the FBI used to corroborate the allegations made in the dossier.
But no one will know the full truth about this massive scandal until all the documents are public – and that includes an unredacted version of the application for a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page.
