#FISA warrant application from Oct'16 for Carter Page released.

👉🏼calls Page a #Russian🇷🇺agent
👉🏼discloses Simpson/Steele ties w/"Candidate #2" (HRC)
👉🏼says #Russia coordinated w/Page & "perhaps others" to influence the election

🔥This is the *first* time that a #FISA application has EVER been released.🧐

The #FBI didn't mince words, initially identifying the target of the FISA application as, "Carter W. Page, a US person, and an agent of a foreign power, described in detail below." 2/


#FISA app alleges Page did "knowingly engage in clandestine intelligence activities"...involving "a violation of the CRIMINAL statutes of the US."

Page was "the subject of targeted recruitment by #Russia🇷🇺...undermine & influence the outcome" of the election. 3/
Page's #FISA warrant application discusses the WikiLeaks' release *stolen* #DNC emails. #Putin denied that #Russia🇷🇺was behind the hack (🙄), but the USIC was "confident" that #Russia hacked Democratic groups & "intended to interfere w/the US election process.🤬4/

🔥The #FISA warrant alleges #Russia's🇷🇺coordination w/Carter Page" [redacted] "to undermine and improperly and ILLEGALLY influence the 2016 Presidential election." 5/


As part of "The #Russian🇷🇺Government's Attempts to Influence the 2016 US Presidential Election," the #FBI alleges that #Russia's efforts "are being coordinated w/Page **and perhaps other individuals** associated w/Candidate #1's (@realDonaldTrump) campaign."🔥 6/
The #FBI describes Page's #Treason Tour to Moscow in July 2016 – in the midst of Trump's campaign (!) – where Page met w/at least 2 #Russian🇷🇺officials (Igor Sechin & Igor Diveykin), according to "Source #1" (Christopher Steele). 7/

BEFORE the election, in **Sept'16**, Michael @Isikoff reported on Page's Jul'16 #Treason Tour to Moscow, where he met w/Igor Sechin (head of #Rosneft) & Igor Diveykin (senior Kremlin official overseeing #Russian🇷🇺intel on the election). 8/

#FISA app says that "Source #1" (Steele) was hired by "identified US person" (Simpson) to "conduct research regarding Candidate #1's (Trump) ties w/#Russia🇷🇺," and that Simpson never disclosed to Steele the motivation for digging into Trump's ties w/Russia.🤔 9/

IMPORTANT: although Steele wasn't told the reasons for digging into Trump's ties w/#Russia🇷🇺, the #FBI **clearly** stated in the #FISA app that they believed Simpson was "looking for information that could be used to discredit [Trump's] campaign." 10/

The #FISA app says that, despite the reasons that Steele was hired to research Trump's ties w/#Russia🇷🇺, Steele previously had provided reliable info to the #FBI (on the #FIFA scandal), and his #TrumpRussia reporting was considered "credible."😎 11/

Despite Team🇷🇺Traitor's attempts to discredit Page's #FISA app, the court was AWARE that Simpson hired Steele to research Trump's ties w/#Russia likely in an attempt to find info to discredit Trump.

And the court still granted the warrant on Page.😎12/

The #FISA app describes Page's Jul'16 #Treason Tour, when he secretly met w/Sechin & discussed lifting #sanctions (as @isikoff reported in Sept'16), and also met w/Diveykin, who offered the possibility of giving Team🇷🇺Trump a dossier of #kompromat on Clinton.🤨 13/

#FISA app describes Team🇷🇺Trump's efforts to soften the @GOP platform on #Ukraine in DIRECT CONTRADICTION to "almost all [#Republican] foreign policy leaders," following Trump's "recent association w/several people sympathetic" to #Russia, including Page.🙄 14/

According to @isikoff's Sept'16 report, "certain members of Congress were 'taken aback' when briefed on [Page's] alleged meetings" w/Sechin & Diveykin & "viewed the meetings as a possible BACK CHANNEL to the #Russians."🙄

#FBI did NOT think that Steele was Isikoff's source.😉15/
🤣#FISA app notes that Trump's campaign tried to distance itself from Page after @isikoff's DAMNING Sept'16 (along w/other reports).

Team🇷🇺Trump refused to comment as to why Trump previously had called "Dr. Carter Page" his foreign policy advisor.🙄 16/

In Sept'16, Page sent the #FBI a letter👉🏼(falsely) claimed that he "did not meet this year w/any sanctioned official in #Russia🇷🇺."

According to @isikoff, Page's meets w/*sanctioned* Sechin & Diveykin in Jul'16 were "actively monitored."😎17/

Reminder: it is a #felony to LIE to the #FBI, regardless of whether or not one is under oath. However, given the other, much more serious CRIMES that Page allegedly committed, this is the least of his worries.😉 18/


The #FISA warrant concludes by alleging that Page "has been collaborating & conspiring w/the #Russian🇷🇺Government & was "knowingly engage(d) in clandestine intelligence activities."🔥 19/

In summary: the #FISA warrant is DAMNING for Team🇷🇺Trump & clearly shows that the court *knew* about possible political motivations for Steele's hire, yet STILL granted the warrant.😎

After several hours (on a Saturday night, no less!) of breaking this down, I'm done.👋🏼
If you’re wondering why Carter Page hasn’t been arrested (yet), don’t worry. Mueller hasn’t (yet) unloaded #indictments of Team🇷🇺Traitor for national security-related crimes.

But he will soon.😎


Page’s #FISA warrant application, plus *three renewals* was over 400 pages long. There’s more to unpack, including #FBI providing the court w/more details about Steele that totally BLOW AWAY Nunes’ #FakeMemo.😎

For now, I must bid all of you adieu.😘

🔥@GOP operative Peter Smith raised >$100,000 to pay #Russian🇷🇺hackers to find Clinton’s emails. 10 days after telling his story to the @WSJ, he committed suicide, yet a friend spoke w/him about a new project hours before his death & says he was “excited.”…
Smith continued his quest for HRC’s emails *after* the US warned of #Russian🇷🇺interference & went to extraordinary lengths to ensure secrecy, communicating via saved DRAFT (unsent) emails in a shared Gmail account.🤨
🔥One sent email said the >$100k in donations were to be sent to a DC-based scholarship fund for **Russian students**👉🏼“This $100k total with the $50k received from you (Smith) will allow us to fund the Washington Scholarship Fund for the Russian students for the promised $150K.”

Hey @SenatorCollins,

It’s not too late to change your vote! #Kavanaugh LIED to the Senate (#felony) about his finances.🤨

Who paid off his debt? If his family paid, did he report this income to the IRS⁉️

If the House flips, @tedlieu WILL investigate‼️…
Hey @lisamurkowski,

You were right and courageous to OPPOSE #Kavanaugh‼️

You might want to reconsider “pairing” your vote with @SteveDaines, because justice will come for #Kavanaugh, sooner than later.😉

Hey @Sen_JoeManchin,

We Democrats realize that you are in a tough re-election battle, but backing #Kavanaugh only brings you more scorn from the @GOP and erodes your much-needed support from @TheDemocrats base.

It’s not too late: vote NO on #Kavanaugh‼️

Connie Chung to Dr. Ford: “I, too, was sexually assaulted—not 36 years ago but ~50 years ago. I kept my dirty little secret to myself. Silence for 5 decades...The exact date & year are fuzzy. But details of the event are vivid—forever seared in my memory.”…
Connie Chung: “Christine, I, too, am terrified as I reveal this publicly. I can’t sleep. I can’t eat. Can you? If you can’t, I understand. I am frightened, I am scared, I can’t even cry.”😰

Chung: “I wish I could forget this truthful event, but I cannot because it is the truth. I am writing to you b/c I know that exact dates, exact years are insignificant. We remember exactly what happened to us & who did it to us. We remember the truth forever.”

I #BelieveHer.❤️

Charles Ludington, a former varsity basketball player & friend of #Kavanaugh at @Yale plans to deliver a statement to the @FBI field office in Raleigh on Monday detailing **violent drunken behavior** by Kavanaugh in college. 1/…
Ludington says #Kavanaugh initiated a fight that led to the ARREST of a friend: “When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent & aggressive...” 2/
“On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man’s face and starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail.”😳 3/

Rod Rosenstein suggested last year that he secretly record Trump to expose "chaos" consuming the administration & discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the #25thAmendment.

Will Trump use this as an excuse to fire Rosenstein⁉️…
Rosenstein made his remarks about the #25thAmendment & secretly recording Trump in meetings & conversations w/other DOJ & FBI officials. Several people (briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by FBI officials, including McCabe) described the episodes.🤨
Rosenstein reportedly told McCabe that he might be able to persuade Jeff Sessions & John Kelly to mount an effort to invoke the #25thAmendment.

All of these incidents allegedly occurred around the time that @Comey was fired. Rosenstein was very distressed & felt he was used.🤔
