|Here's Carter Page giving a presentation in Moscow on December 12, 2016... Wonder how Trump missed this?|
Newly released documents show that the FBI believed Carter Page, a campaign adviser to Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, was working for Mother Russia.
According to the wiretap warrant applications released Saturday the Justice Department believed Page was conspiring and collaborating with the Russian government to the extent that it violated the criminal statutes of the United States.
The 412 pages of documents, including an initial wiretap warrant application and the three follow-up renewals, included damning passages concerning Page...
“The FBI believes Page has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian government... to undermine and influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election in violation of U.S. criminal law,”

Other sections noted that Page has established relationships with Russian government officials, including Russian intelligence officers.
Additionally the FBI believed the Russian government had been coordinating with other individuals associated with the Trump’s campaign as well.
Thanks to the Mueller Probe we already know that Trump's indicted campaign manager Paul Manafort had deep ties to Russia as well as the ties to Russia shared by campaign aide Rick Gates, foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos and National Security Advisor Michael Flynn all of whom have plead guilty.
Now we are left to wonder how many other individuals that had been employed by Donald Trump will wind up with Russian entanglements.
The formerly classified Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications were released after advocacy groups and news organizations, including The New York Times and USA Today, sued for disclosure.
The FBI obtained the first of it's four wiretap warrants for Page in 2016... the same year the above picture was taken.
FBI documentation shows that Page had been compromised by Russian intelligence as far back as 2013.
