Rosenstein admits FBI hid exculpatory info in FISA renewals

June 3, 2020, Fairfax, Va.–Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s statement that he “would not” have signed the FISA renewal warrants against Carter Page had he known that Christopher Steele’s source for his dossier had contradicted Steele’s false allegations of a Trump-Russia conspiracy:

“Rod Rosenstein’s bombshell admission that he was wrong in signing the FISA renewals on Carter Page, based on the Horowitz report findings of misconduct and deception and withheld information is incredible. If Rosenstein is telling the truth that the origins of the Steele dossier and its veracity were withheld from him by the FBI, as the acting Attorney General responsible for the investigation, and due to that he signed the FISA warrant under false pretenses, this would provide one more example of the top leadership at the FBI engaging in a wholesale of coverup of exculpatory information in order to overturn the results of the 2016 election.

“Rosenstein’s testimony puts former FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former Agent Peter Strzok squarely in the legal hot seat. This must never happen again and Congress is duty bound to ensure that any FISA reform meets that standard.”
