In what is the second major “leak,” to come from the FISA abuse memo, a new report reveals Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein signed off on an application to extend surveillance of Trump campaign official Carter Page. Rosenstein assumed office on April 26th, 2017, approving the spy warrant merely three months after Trump was inaugurated on January 20th, 2017.
U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approved to extend surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page shortly after assuming office last spring, the New York Times reported, citing people familiar with a secret Republican memo.
The extension shows the Department of Justice, under President Donald Trump, saw reason to believe that Page was acting as a Russian agent, the paper reported on Sunday.
The memo paints the investigation into Russia’s alleged meddling in the U.S. presidential election as tainted from the start, the paper said.
In June, The Gateway Pundit reported, Page sent a request to Rosenstein seeking the release of information used to allegedly obtain a FISA warrant to monitor his communications.
