Friday's HOT MIC
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) indicated during an interview on Fox News Monday that his committee would be asking for the transcripts of the four surveillance requests on Carter Page from the FISA Court.
He has made good on that promise according to Fox News, which has obtained a copy of his congressional letter to the court:
Writing to Rosemary M. Collyer, the presiding judge at the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, Nunes asked for transcripts of "any relevant FISC hearings associated with the initial FISA application or subsequent renewals related to electronic surveillance of Carter Page."
The FISA abuse memo detailed the troubling information that was discovered in the Page surveillance warrant, first granted in October 2016. After HPSCI Republicans released the memo last week, Democrats and the media (BIRM) loudly protested that it was "incomplete and misleading."
Now that Nunes wants to have the entire transcripts of the four surveillance requests released, they'll moan about something else most likely:
As Ace quips: "I'm sure this'll be another case where our Firefighter Media says 'Don't you dare demand information from the government!!!'"
