Carter Page Reveals More FBI Abuses will be Uncovered, Says IG Report just the “Tip of the Iceberg”
Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page says more FBI abuses will be uncovered in the coming months after it was revealed the bureau obtained invalid warrants to spy on him during the lead to the 2016 election.
Page told the Washington Times that the abuses revealed in the FISA report are the “tip of the iceberg,” and claims to be conducting his own inquiry into the matter.
“It was a broad array of people, and so far there has been no accountability,” Page told the Times’ Rowan Scarborough. “I have a lot of questions that IG Horowitz never covered. These need to be answered ASAP. I am also going to be taking some action. There’s much more to come.”
Earlier this month, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) requested that 17 DOJ and FBI employees participate in transcribed interviews as part of the Senate investigation into the FISA abuses.
Among those he plans to interview are former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
Page told the Times that he has drafted 19 questions he would like to see the Judiciary committee ask Inspector General Horowitz.
Page also addressed the corruption surrounding “Case Agent 1”– the FBI agent identified in the IG report as the individual responsible for many of the 17 “significant errors and omissions” in the FISA applications.
“I think there’s a lot of bad actors who deserve accountability. To say that he is the one and only kind of main person responsible, I think, ignores a lot of negligent people,” said Page.
In December, Page vowed to sue the U.S. government for illegally spying on him and take his lawsuits “right up to the Supreme Court.”
