Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) said the newly released FISA memo reveals government surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign during the 2016 campaign and transition.

The memo was declassified by the White House Friday and the full contents released by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.

On "Outnumbered Overtime," DeSantis said one of the most shocking revelations is that the infamous anti-Trump dossier -- which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee -- was used by the FBI to secure surveillance warrants on at least one member of the Trump team.

"This whole Russia stuff was, I think, much more wishful thinking on the part of FBI agents like Peter Strzok, who didn't like Trump, the anti-Trump media, who obviously didn't like him, and, of course, the Democrats, who were running a campaign against him," DeSantis said.

He said they always assumed the worst about anything related to Trump and Russia, as opposed to following the facts where they lead.

"We're in 2018 now, and we still don't have evidence of any Trump-Russia campaign collusion," DeSantis said.
