And? Page was already off the trump team by then. Do you realize that?
Do you realize that this in no way supports the claim that they targeted trump and his campaign. It's all stupid conspiracy theory that does the president no favors in using because it just makes him sound stupid to the general public.
So then how will you explain all the "unmasking" that went on from the former administration? Where was the authorization for our government to spy on those american citizens unmasked?
It appears to me the former administration used Page as the doorway to get into the campaign communications and monitor such, "in the name of national security".
It is an updated version of watergate, except the break in was not physical but electronic.
This unmasking # is so petty and shallow you should be embarassed.
I couldnt believe it was a thing the first time, and am blown away at learning it's a thing again today.
Your brain is poisoned by Trumpism. Gross. Be Best!
Amazing how illiterate some Americans are about the Rule of Law, and abuse of power.
In the 1960's, these same shenanigans would have landed people in the slammer, and been the scandal of the century.
In the mid 1970's, the Church committee was probably the most earth shattering scandalous thing divulged in public in American history... and serious restrictions were placed upon the Intel Community, especially the CIA.
Matching the crimes and scandals of the past, with the generational wisdom of Americans illuminates gaping holes of ignorance in much of America.
That's one of the reasons regressive left journalists leap over to "Hitler/Nazis" so readily... because they are utterly ignorant about what that ACTUALLY means.
There is a large quiet faction of older Americans that you can be certain, are pretty offended by media, leftists and such casual use of the blame game ala the rise of fascism in Europe in the late 20's into the 30's and start of the war.
The FBI Speculates that that the identified U.S person [Simpson] was likely looking for information that could be used to discredit Candidate #1’s [Trump’s] campaig
[He] has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government.
the FBI believes Page has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian government.
