Congressional Investigators Given “Extraordinary Accommodation” To Access Secret FISA Documents

The Justice Department has quietly granted congressional investigators access to secret FISA documents in relation to former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. 

Daily Caller reports:

The Department of Justice says it will allow members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees to view surveillance warrants granted against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in what the agency is calling an “extraordinary accommodation.”

DOJ is allowing the access to the four warrant applications in response to demands from California Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

However, as the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross points out, the Justice Department makes “no mention of providing [a] copy of the Electronic Communication (EC) which laid out [the] basis of [the] Russia probe.”

The Justice Department’s latest move might still not be enough for House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes.

Fox News contributor Sara Carter reported Wednesday that House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes is calling for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to hand over unredacted documents related to the agency’s Russia probe.
