FBI May Have Picked Up Page-Bannon Call With FISA Warrant

The letter notes that due to the "public interest in transparency in these unprecedented circumstances", justice department officials would be made available to offer "technical assistance" to edit the memo for potential release.
Democrats expressed outrage at the president's decision.
If Democrats take back the House in November, Adam Schiff is going to be man who will be running the House investigation into Donald Trump.
McGahn wrote in his letter that Trump was "inclined to declassify" the Democrats' memo, but given its sensitive passages, he was "unable to do so". The president said the Democrats knew, because of the sensitivity of the information they included in their memo, that it would need to be heavily redacted.
"The executive branch stands ready to review any subsequent draft of the February 5 memorandum for declassification at the earliest opportunity", McGahn wrote to the committee. The FBI publicly objected to the Nunes memo's release, suggesting the document left out key facts and was misleading.
But some Hill and Justice Department veterans are puzzled by this whole mess.
"Clearly, the president has something to hide". "Their memo is sitting at the House Intelligence Committee down at the bottom of the Capitol waiting to be redacted", the California Republican told Fox News.
Sen. Chuck Schumer of NY, the top Senate Democrat, said bluntly, "Millions of Americans are asking one simple question: What is he hiding?"
It's likely that all four sources used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to start spying on President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign have connections to Bill and Hillary Clinton, according to a top investigative journalist. Whatever the case, Trump, who declared last weekend that the GOP memo "totally vindicates" him, is losing support from his own party as he elevates the rhetoric against the FBI and DOJ, which are overseeing the special counsel investigation into Russian Federation and Trump's actions before and after he became president.
Nunes also supports Trump's decision to block Schiff's memo even though he wanted to release his original one.
In a statement, Mr Nunes said: "It's no surprise that these agencies recommended against publishing the memo without redactions".
The White House has blocked, at least for now, the release of a memo by Democrats on the House intelligence committee.
Democrats say the GOP memo contradicts its own premise that the Russian Federation investigation began with Page and the dossier. Fusion GPS had been hired by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to produce the dossier.

In 2015, then President Pranab Mukherjee had flown to Tel Aviv in Israel and traveled by road to Ramallah . Modi arrived here on the first leg of his tour of three West Asian countries, including Palestine .
On Friday, Trump refused to declassify the Democratic document. "What does the President have to hide?" she tweeted. Democrats have countered that the GOP memo was inaccurate and a misleading collection of "cherry-picked" details.
Fellow Sex and the City co-star, Cynthia Nixon, 51, also commented on the post , writing: "Hey Kim such very bad news". She added : "Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now".
