    FBI used dossier allegations to bolster Trump-Russia investigation

    By Evan Perez, Shimon Prokupecz and Manu Raju, CNN

    Updated 2207 GMT (0607 HKT) April 18, 2017



    Washington (CNN) The FBI last year used a dossier of allegations of Russian ties to Donald Trump's campaign as part of the justification to win approval to secretly monitor a Trump associate, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.

    The dossier has also been cited by FBI Director James Comey in some of his briefings to members of Congress in recent weeks, as one of the sources of information the bureau has used to bolster its investigation, according to US officials briefed on the probe.

    This includes approval from the secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to monitor the communications of Carter Page, two of the officials said. Last year, Page was identified by the Trump campaign as an adviser on national security.

    Officials familiar with the process say even if the application to monitor Page included information from the dossier, it would only be after the FBI had corroborated the information through its own investigation. The officials would not say what or how much was corroborated.

    The dossier first came to light when CNN reported that a summary of it had been presented to President Obama and President-elect Trump back in December by top US Intelligence officials.

    Comey's briefings to lawmakers stand in contrast to efforts in recent months by the bureau and US intelligence agencies to try to distance themselves from the dossier.

    US law enforcement and intelligence officials have said US investigators did their own work, separate from the dossier, to support their findings that Russia tried to meddle in the 2016 presidential election in favor of Trump.
    The dossier alleges that Page met senior Russian officials as an emissary of the Trump campaign, and discussed quid-pro-quo deals relating to sanctions, business opportunities and Russia's interference in the election. Page has denied meeting the officials named in the dossier and says he never cut any political deals with the Kremlin.
    During the campaign, he traveled to Russia in July, where he gave a lecture critical of US policy toward Russia. That trip drew the attention of the FBI and raised concerns about Page's contacts with suspected Russian operatives, according to US officials briefed on the matter. Page has said he made the trip independent of the Trump campaign and his speech reflected his own views.
    Page has also disputed any wrongdoing and says there was nothing illegal in his interactions with Russian officials. He blames former Obama administration officials for pushing the Russia allegations.

    "I look forward to the Privacy Act of 1974 lawsuit that I plan to file in response to the civil rights violations by Obama administration appointees last year," Page said in a statement to CNN. "The discovery process will be of great value to the United States, as our nation hears testimony from them under oath, and we receive disclosure of the documents which show what exactly was done in 2016."

    The dossier is a collection of memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative working for political opponents of Trump. The memos purport to describe efforts by Russian intelligence to gather compromising information on Trump. CNN reported earlier this year that both President Obama and then-President Elect Trump were briefed on the dossier's existence in part to ensure that Trump understood what was being circulating among intelligence agencies investigating the dossier, and also to emphasize that Russia sought to compile information damaging to Republicans and Democrats. US investigators say they have corroborated some aspects of the allegations, particularly the conversations between foreign nationals that took place as described in the reports.

    Comey hasn't mentioned the dossier in all his briefings to lawmakers, according to people familiar with the briefings. To some of them, he has emphasized that the FBI gathered evidence as part of its investigation to support seeking FISA court approval and to take other steps as part of the probe that began last July, according to the officials briefed of the probe.

    The Washington Post was first to report the FISA court warrant targeting Page.
    To obtain court permission to target Page, the FBI and Justice Department would have to present probable cause that he was acting as an agent of a foreign power, including possibly engaging in clandestine intelligence gathering for a foreign government. Comey and other top Justice Department officials would have to sign off on the application, which government officials say involves a rigorous review process.
    Then-candidate Trump cited Page last year in an interview as one of his advisers on national security matters. He was officially on the campaign foreign policy team from March 2016 to September 2016. Page calls himself a 'junior member of the team" and Trump officials have said he had no influential role with the campaign.

    The FBI became interested in Page, the officials say, in part because of concerns about his interactions with suspected Russian intelligence operatives last year. The Justice Department and FBI haven't accused Page of wrongdoing and it's unclear whether any charges could be brought in the investigation.

    The FBI already knew about Page because of his role as a witness in the 2013 federal prosecution of an undercover Russian spy. Prosecutors alleged that the spy had tried to cultivate Page as a source. Page denies he knew he was interacting with a Russian spy.
    Page was also among those who met with Russia's ambassador, Sergey Kislyak during the Republican National Convention in 2016.

    CNN's Pamela Brown and Marshall Cohen contributed to this report.

He and his Defense Secretary (Mathis) and his National Security adviser (another General) doesn't even know where his "Great Armada" is in real time!!! If he get's it "WRONG" we are all going to DIE!!!!!! Yea a rank Amateur with emotions of a teenage girl, is in "CHARGE" with the fate of the world at stake!!! (I'm sure that fact makes everyone feel a whole lot better!!!) Hillary really should look a lot better to most people now, or (I should say people with brains) Her experience, Secretary of State (2nd most important person under the President) and a US Senator and former first lady, if you can't see that, "HERE'S YOUR SIGN!!!!"

    Hatred toward any other President!!!!!! (Trump) Were you paying attention when Obama got elected????? Russ Limbaugh the mouth piece for the Heart land of America said the "FIRST" day Obama got elected, "I HOPE THIS PRESIDENT FAILS!!!!!" (Before he did anything!!!) He got sooo much criticism for that, he changed it to, "I hope all of his policy's fails!!!" Then magically (I'm kidding of course) the whole tea party movement was formed, in response to Obama getting elected President!!! A new slogan was also born, said by every Republican politician and supporter. WE ARE GOING TO MAKE OBAMA A 1 TERM PRESIDENT!!!! This was all said in the opening weeks of the Obama Presidency!!!!

    Were you on vacation in a 3 world country with no access to the news, when all this was happening???? Or maybe you were in a coma perhaps???? If not, you must not have been paying very close attention or you were perhaps suffering from Republican disease???? What is Republican disease??? If you don't know, I'll explain it to you. Republican disease is, "they can do no wrong!!!" But if someone else does the exact same thing as the Republicans just did, that's terrible, that's awful, how could someone else do such a terrible thing!!! The classic example was the Republicans being obstructionist during Obama Presidency. Now when the Democrats do the exact same thing, they are accused of being terrible people. Same thing with your statement about people protesting Presidents Trumps administration. It's pay back time for the Republicans, for they "are" the ones who started it!!!!! What now needs to happen is, both sides need to come to a gentlemen s agreement and act bipartisan and civil to each other. So far Trump has not reached out at all to the Democrats!!! Instead he has done nothing but name calling to them!!!! Wait till he needs them!!! Then judge the man!!! If he acts like an idiot, then he gets what he deserves!!!!

    I didn't see any protests when Obama was elected. Now the dems are road blocking. Rush Limbaugh is a dumb *** anyways. Who cares what he says. I never seen anyone protest Obama walking around with a sign @ not my president. It's rediculous. Why aren't these protestors at work at 2 o'clock on a Tuesday. Oh. And support my president. I supported yours. Until he totally f**** me on my healthcare.

    Russ Limbaugh and Fox News got President Trump elected in the Red States and the Rust Belt. Remember Hillary won the popular vote by almost 3 million votes, yet we now have President Trump as our Commander in Chief. This whole discussion started over North Korea. I hope it play's out well for humanity's sake. If it doesn't, it will probably be blamed on President Trump decisions, on how he dealt with the Fat kid in North Korea!!!
