Former Top FBI Lawyer Admits to 'Irregularities' in Russia Probe, FISA Warrant By Jay Greenberg

Former Top FBI Lawyer Admits to 'Irregularities' in Russia Probe, FISA Warrant

A former top FBI lawyer has admitted to House investigators that he was personally involved in the FISA warrant to spy on then-Trump Campaign aide Carter Page and noted "irregularities" in both the application and the basis for Russia probe, according to a leaked transcript. During a closed-door congressional interview, ex-FBI counsel James Baker told investigators that the Bureau and the Justice Department had taken "unusual" steps in the FBI’s Russia probe in 2016. In October, Baker told House investigators he was only "aware of the [Russia] investigation," but his recent admission confirms he was directly involved in the early stages of the surveillance of Donald Trump's team. A copy of the leaked transcript was obtained by Fox News who has confirmed details of the record which is still under government review before its public release. Baker testified that he was briefed on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant “as time went by” and confirmed that he became involved early on in the process. The bases for the warrant relied heavily on the unverified anti-Trump Steele dossier, which was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee via their law firm, Perkins Coie. “I don't want to see it at the end, like when it is about to go to the director [for] certification, because then it is hard to make changes then," Baker told House investigators when Republicans were in control of the chamber. "So I wanted to see it when it was gelled enough but before it went through the process and before it went to the director. "I wanted to see it and I wanted to read it because I knew it was sensitive."
