FBI/FISA/Trump Campaign

The Morning Joe panel discusses a report in The Washington Post that the FBI — as part of its investigation into possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia — had obtained a secret FISA warrant last summer to monitor the communications of Carter Page, at the time an adviser to then presidential candidate Donald Trump. Explains veteran columnist Mike Barnicle: “You do not get a FISA warrant on a whim or a suspicion. You have to have probable cause. The FBI in this case apparently had probable cause. Then you go to the FISA Court, comprised of judges. I couldn't name the judges on the FISA Court. They go to great lengths to really disguise who the FISA Court judges are, and they, thus, get a warrant to look at Carter Page.” Listen to more from Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough and author Jon Meacham.
