Judge Nap: Republicans Overpromised and Underdelivered, FISA Memo Does Not 'Vindicate' Trump


The man at the center of the controversial surveillance memo - former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page - sat down exclusively with Laura Ingraham on "The Ingraham Angle." 

In a heavily hyped move, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee released Friday a declassified memo alleging the Justice Department and FBI abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in order to spy on Page in 2016. 

The memo alleges the unverified anti-Trump dossier - funded by the Clinton campaign and the DNC - was the driving force behind the warrant to conduct surveillance on Page. 

Democrats, however, have disputed that finding, touting their own memo and alleging there was additional evidence against Page not contained in the dossier.

Page said Friday the memo revealed "misdeeds against the Trump Movement."

"The brave and assiduous oversight by Congressional leaders in discovering this unprecedented abuse of process represents a giant, historic leap in the repair of America’s democracy," Page said in a statement. 

"Now that a few of the misdeeds against the Trump Movement have been partially revealed, I look forward to updating my pending legal action in opposition to DOJ this weekend in preparation for Monday’s next small step on the long, potholed road toward helping to restore law and order in our great country."

Speaking with Ingraham, Page said people within the Trump campaign who had "any connection positive or otherwise" with Russia were constantly the "number one target for attack."

"[I] became a liability pretty quick," he said.

Page and Ingraham also discussed a paragraph in the dossier that Page disputed, which said he met with Russian oil magnate Igor Sechin.

Page said he never met Sechin, and said the "19 percent stake" in the company he was reportedly offered would've added up to a ridiculous amount of money for a man in his position.
