In response to Freedom of Information Act requests and a lawsuit filed by justice watchdog Judicial Watch, more than 400 pages were released that hold information the FBI and Department of Justice used to get Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants against former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
Judicial Watch’s suit demanded the DoJ turn over “FISA materials related to Carter Page” by July 20, 2017.
