In a Monday night interview on FNC's 'Ingraham Angle,' Rep. Devin Nunes responded to the left's characterization of the contents of the FISA warrants which enabled spying on 2016 Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page (and everyone Page contacted).
One of the warrants on Page was released this week, prompting Democratic talking heads and Rep. Adam Schiff, Nunes' Democratic counterpart on the Intelligence Committee to argue that it proves the FBI acted correctly. Nunes says the warrant proves his original claim, that the FBI hid the political origins of the Steele dossier while relying on the dossier's claims to obtain a surveillance warrant on a member of the Trump campaign.
So we now find out that it was indeed the unverified and Fake Dirty Dossier, that was paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNC, that was knowingly & falsely submitted to FISA and which was responsible for starting the totally conflicted and discredited Mueller Witch Hunt!— Donald J.

Nunes explained Monday that while the FISA warrant application does say the dossier had a political origin, like Schiff said, the FBI never came right out and told the judge that Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid for the dossier to be made. In order to clarify matters, Nunes is now calling for the unredacted version of the FISA warrant on Carter Page to be released.
DEVIN NUNES: You have to really desperately try to put the words together the way they did, instead of having a simple definition, which could be "candidate 2 hired source 1 to get the information." That would be really simple to explain, the courts would have understood it easily, and at that point they should have rejected it.I don't blame the judges, I think the judges were misled by the FBI.
“It was classified to cover up misconduct by the FBI and the Justice Department in misleading the Court by using this Dossier in a dishonest way to gain a warrant to target the Trump Team. This is a Clinton Campaign document. It was a fraud and a hoax designed to target Trump....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2018
....and the DOJ, FBI and Obama Gang need to be held to account. Source #1 was the major source. Avoided talking about it being the Clinton campaign behind it. Misled the Court to provide a pretext to SPY on the Trump Team. Not about Carter Page..was all about getting Trump.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2018
.....”Carter Page wasn’t a spy, wasn’t an agent of the Russians - he would have cooperated with the FBI. It was a fraud and a hoax designed to target Trump.” Tom Fitton @JudicialWatch A disgrace to America. They should drop the discredited Mueller Witch Hunt now!— Donald J.
