DOJ extended surveillance of Trump campaign adviser over Steele dossier findings

President Donald Trump has recently echoed fellow Republicans in calling for a controversial memo House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes wrote about the Justice Department to be released - and we might now know why he's so eager.

Democrats have also claimed that the memo, which summarizes classified information held by the Justice Department, is misleading and paints a "distorted" picture, and they have prepared their own counter memo they want to release.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein signed off on an application past year to continue surveillance on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, according to a report.

In the memo, Republicans alleges that senior intelligence officials abused the surveillance program to target Trump's campaign as part of a political bias and failed to properly vet the application. The memo was reportedly shared with many Republican members of Congress, but has not been turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Department of Justice.

It is expected to show that Federal Bureau of Investigation and DOJ officials did not explain to the secret court granting spy warrants that the dossier was politically fueled opposition research.

The former investment banker and Navy officer took a personal trip to Moscow to deliver a speech at a graduation ceremony in July 2016, which fueled nascent allegations that Trump was somehow colluding with Russian Federation.

Page, who was a Trump campaign foreign policy adviser until September 2016, was never charged with wrongdoing.

Page, a Navy intelligence veteran and a former Moscow-based banker who later founded an investment company in NY, has allegedly been on the FBI's radar for years. The FBI reportedly received the surveillance warrant on him in fall of 2016, but Page had left the campaign by then.

According to the memo, Rosenstein extended the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) order on Page, a former Moscow-based investment banker whom a Russian Federation spy had tried to recruit, according to a 2013 investigation. "But there's no no mystery about the fact that he's livid at [Attorney General Jeff] Sessions for recusing himself and livid at Rosenstein for appointing a special counsel".

Trump has reportedly been unhappy with Rosenstein, who oversees special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether the Trump campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential campaign.
