(TargetLiberty.org) – The FBI’s controversial “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation against former Trump aide Carter Page took another knock on Wednesday, September 30. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsay Graham (R-SC) read out a letter from the Justice Department attorney who authorized the FISA surveillance warrant on Page. It turns out that if she’d known then what she knows now, she wouldn’t have authorized it.
The attorney from the Justice Department’s Office of Intelligence wrote that if she’d been aware of the errors since found by her department’s Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, she would have rejected the applications. That makes her the third DOJ official to say they only approved surveillance on Page because they didn’t know all the facts. Horowitz identified 17 major errors in the applications for surveillance on Page, who hasn’t been charged with any crime.
Their only “probable cause” was they hated @realDonaldTrump and would fabricate anything to hurt him and his presidency.

The DOJ admitted in January that two of the four warrants against Page were invalid. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been insisting the Page investigation was rigorous and met all standards; now the people who authorized it have shot that argument out from under him.
