"Really bad things were happening" during the early days of the FBI's Russia investigation, President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday morning, including with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act [FISA] warrants that were obtained against his former campaign aide Carter Page.
"Really bad things were happening, but they are now being exposed," the president said in one of a pair of tweets concerning an appearance by Rep. Pete King, R-N.Y., on Fox News Monday night. "Big stuff!"
“'What will be disclosed is that there was no basis for these FISA warrants, that the important information was kept from the court, there’s going to be a disproportionate influence of the (Fake) Dossier,'" Trump quoted King as saying. "'Basically, you have a counterterrorism tool used to spy on a presidential campaign, which is unprecedented in our history."
Trump Monday declassified documents related to the early days of the FBI's Russia investigation, including part of the FISA warrant documentation on Page and the investigative activities of senior Justice Department lawyer Bruce Ohr.
King told Fox News late Monday that the documents will reveal that if there was any collusion, it was between the FBI and Fusion GPS, the agency behind a dossier about the president.
