As previously reported, in what was the second major “leak,” to come from the FISA abuse memo, a new report revealed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein signed off on an application to extend surveillance of Trump campaign official Carter Page.
Page, a former investment banker, was a foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign.
Rosenstein assumed office on April 26th, 2017, approving the spy warrant merely three months after Trump was inaugurated on January 20th, 2017.
Last week, the Daily Beast reported former FBI Director James Comey, bureau Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are officially named in the “shocking” FISA abuse memo.
As Paul Sperry noted, on January 5th, 2018, Senate Judiciary Chair Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sent a letter to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding they investigate if Christopher Steele lied to federal authorities.
The letter was the first criminal referral from Congress to the DOJ.
The FISA memo may be released Monday evening. Stay tuned. The Gateway Pundit will be reporting on every breaking story about the damning FISA memo.
