Carter Page subject of Russian Federation recruitment effort: Federal Bureau of Investigation documents

But the warrant application shows the Federal Bureau of Investigation did tell the court it believed the person who hired Steele was looking for information to discredit the Trump campaign but also believed his reporting about Page was credible.

The FISA request also argues that Christopher Steele, whose salacious Trump dossier was in part paid for by Fusion GPS that received funding from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton's Campaign, was "never advised as to motivation behind the research" into Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

The released documents include an October 2016 application to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to wiretap Page as well as three 90-day renewal applications.

"That section cites information from "Source #1", who alleged that during a trip to Moscow in July 2016, Page met secretly with two sanctioned Kremlin insiders, Igor Sechin and Igor Diveykin, as part of a collusion scheme involving the Trump campaign", reports The DCNF's Chuck Ross.

He blamed Trump for making public House Republicans' initial memo about the FISA applications, a move by Trump that the congressman called "nakedly political and self-interested, and created to to (sic) interfere with the Special Counsel's investigation".
