Ridiculous 'beyond words' says Carter Page of allegations

"The FBI believes the Russian government's efforts are being coordinated with Page and perhaps other individuals associated with [Trump's] campaign", the application with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court said.

Former Trump campaign manager Carter Page appeared on CNN 's State of the Union with Jake Tapper on Sunday morning where he attempted to defend himself over the FBI's FISA Warrant which was released on Saturday afternoon.

The warrant on Page has been a major point of contention between Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill.

Archaeologists Find Unexpected Contents Inside Alexandria Coffin
The prospect of opening the long-sealed sarcophagus had stirred fears in Egyptian media that it could unleash a 1000-year curse. British outlet The Independent , among others, pushed a theory that the tomb could contain the remains of Alexander the Great .

Page, an American oil industry consultant who served as a foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump as he was campaigning for president, has been under investigation by US intelligence agencies including the CIA, NSA and FBI, for alleged contact he has had with Russian officials under USA sanctions.

Page has denied being a Russian agent, and he has not been charged with any crime. The documents show the warrant applications were submitted and approved at least through June 2017, with the June 2017 application signed by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The application goes on to accuse Page of "collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government".

First, it charged that in seeking the secret surveillance warrant, federal investigators had failed to inform judges that key evidence was obtained from a biased source-the so-called Steele dossier, which was initially written by former British spy Christopher Steele on behalf of Democrats. In April, the DOJ said they were "processing for potential redaction and release certain [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] materials related to Carter Page", after watchdog group Judicial Watch and several other organizations filed similar lawsuits. Rep. Adam Schiff, Calif., the ranking Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said he believes the documents "affirm that our nation faced a profound counterintelligence threat prior to the 2016 election".

Boeing to build two new 747-8 aircraft for presidential use
In December 2016, Mr Trump tweeted that cost for a pair of Air Force One planes was " out of control " at " more than $4 billion". The White House announced in February that the administration had negotiated a $3.9 billion contract with Boeing for new jets.

Ms Pelosi added that the Republican's should stop trying to hinder the investigations "for the sake of our national security and our democracy".

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Twitter on Sunday that it was looking more and more like his presidential campaign was illegally spied upon. "The GOP must cease their attacks on our law enforcement and intelligence communities, and finally decide where their loyalty lies".

Last week, a federal grand jury charged 12 Russian intelligence officers with hacking Democratic computer networks in 2016, in the most detailed USA accusation yet that Moscow meddled in the presidential election to help Mr Trump.
