New FBI Texts May Implicate Obama in FISAGate

Newly revealed text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page may directly implicate President Barack Obama in the Foreign Intelligence Service Act (FISA) surveillance scandal.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Obama’s administration sought multiple FISA warrants to snoop on members of the Donald Trump campaign — and may have even listened in on conversations involving Trump in Trump Tower. Interestingly, the FISA court denied an FBI request in June 2016 — a remarkable act, as 99.97 percent of FISA requests are eventually granted. The warrant to spy on members of the Trump campaign was approved in October.
