Lack of FISA court hearings on Carter Page warrants sparks fierce debate
The court overseeing Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act didn’t hold any hearings on the applications targeting onetime Trump campaign aide Carter Page. But does that matter?
According to President Trump’s allies, it is a big deal. A bevy of legal experts, some of whom are anti-Trump, disagree.
After his conservative watchdog group found out Friday, via a filing in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, that there were no hearings, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said it was”disturbing” that the FISA court “rubber-stamped” the four spy authority warrants on Page.
