Trump’s DOJ still investigating alleged wrongful surveillance of president’s campaign aide

Published

on

The Justice Department is still investigating the 2016 surveillance of Trump campaign aide Carter Page — though no public comment has been made about it in nearly a year.

CNN reported Thursday that a source revealed that acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker revealed the investigation into alleged abuses of power by the Obama-era FBI is still on.

According to the source, Whitaker told former Attorney General Ed Meese that John Huber, a US attorney in Utah, is still probing the allegations.

Along with the alleged abuse of power regarding the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant for Page, Huber is also reportedly looking into whether the FBI “should have done more to investigate the Clinton Foundation.”

The report noted that then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions in March 2018 revealed the US attorney’s investigation. The revelation came as GOP lawmakers were calling for the appointment of a second special counsel to probe the alleged FBI abuses.

While the 2016 surveillance of Page has been the subject of ample GOP speculation, prior CNN reporting revealed that the former Trump campaign aide was also surveilled under FISA in 2014 for his alleged ties to Russia.

The forgotten man that he speaks to is a person that finally feels like they're being taken seriously, they’re being paid attention to.'" He also pointedly refused to say whether Trump was a good role model for American children.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
