(Washington Examiner) House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., accused "certain members of the press" of working for the Democratic Party on Monday, while addressing divergent takes among journalists and experts about whether this weekend's release of top-secret documents related to the wiretapping of one-time Trump campaign aide Carter Page adds credence or detracts from his panel's memo on alleged surveillance abuse.
During an interview on Fox News, host Laura Ingraham referred to a section in a Lawfare blog post by David Kris — focusing on the role the infamous Trump dossier written by ex-British spy Christopher Steele played in federal officials convincing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to approve spy warrants on Page for his suspicious ties to Russia — which she said Nunes' critics have often repeated.
"Now we can see that the footnote disclosing Steele’s possible bias takes up more than a full page in the applications, so there is literally no way the FISA Court could have missed it. The FBI gave the court enough information to evaluate Steele’s credibility," the section from Kris's piece reads.
