President Trump Directs White House Counsel to Find FISA Warrants

A senior White House official tells the New York Times that White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn is now searching for a FISA warrant – or series of warrants – allegedly issued in an Obama-era investigation of Donald Trump’s ties to a shifty Russian bank.

The official says that McGahn’s office wants access to any order, issued by the ultra-secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, relating to President Trump, his campaign, or his immediate associates.

Those documents are usually only available to law enforcement, and while the White House has the authority to request the documents, they typically don’t – largely because the Department of Justice is supposed to be insulated from political pressure to take on, or complete, an investigation.

But according to a report in Heat Street in November, the DOJ began an investigation into a Russian bank in 2016, looking for money flowing between that bank and any Presidential campaign. According to Louise Mensch writing in Heat Street, the FBI approached the FISA court for permission to investigate a server, now believed to be in Pennsylvania.

That warrant was turned down, but another, more “narrowly drawn,” according to The Intercept, was not. After that, the story isn’t so clear: the FBI could have found nothing, it could still be investigating, or it could have requested other FISA warrants, with more specific details about Donald Trump’s inner circle.

If the White House retrieves the alleged FISA documents, Trump will have the executive option to declassify whatever information remains about the warrants and the ensuing investigation.

That, of course, is a double-edged sword: if Trump declassifies the information, it could certainly reveal that President Obama had ordered a large scale investigation into his contacts with the Russians. It could also reveal that Trump’s inner circle did, in fact, have contacts with the Russians.

The White House Counsel’s office says that they are only now beginning, on the Administration’s orders, to explore how to obtain the possible FISA warrants. White House press Secretary Sean Spicer told the media, in an emailed statement, that the office is “reviewing what options, if any, are available to us.”

Mark Levin actually made a pretty solid case for Trump on this one. And he did it without yelling!

looks like it came from a site called "heatst.com" whatever the fuck that is

They are the ones who broke the story originally

doubling down on an article with no sources

he is being trolled into a living death

If Trump proves that Trump Towers was wiretapped the dems will drop the 'IT's impossible for Obama to wiretap Trump' and fallback to 'prove it was Obama' , then 'well it was a legal wiretap, its normal'. By the time they run out of excueses everybody will have forgotten the original claim.

"But according to a report in Heat Street in November"

That's what they think but it's going to backfire just like the nine million times before

So Trump is interjecting himself into department of justice investigations that may or may not being ongoing for which himself or his administration may be the target.

Yeah... that's not a good precedent to set.

What would proving that the warrants existed compromise?

James Clapper already said that the report was final

The New York Times already put out a story confirming certain people were under surveillance

Most likely Roger Stone Stephen Miller and Paul manafort

Because it will give no context.

Unless he plans on declassifying:
1. The evidence produced to approve the warrants (if there are any),
2. The target and scope
3. What the result was


Otherwise he is the one going fishing. And also fishing for department of justice investigations on yourself or team seems like a gigantic ethical no-no as the department of justice should be completely free of political pressures.

its obvious they were spying...the questions are just to what extent and who ordered it

I am really curious about the first FISA warrant that was supposedly named "TRUMP". I think it says a lot that it was turned down, as the FISA courts approve virtually all requests.

Trump claimed he was illegally wiretapped. If the tap did occur, and was legal, then he is a liar

you are a liar. prove that trump claimed he was illegally wiretapped

Lol are you kidding me?

If Trump was wiretapped, then the Obama admin was/is a bunch of corrupt assholes.

If not, then Trump is a megalomaniac wasting the time of people that have better things to do.

Either way, I'm just sick of the corruption.
