MORE TO COME MONDAY NIGHT

Carter said that Attorney General Jeff Sessions also appears poised to name a second Special Counsel to investigate alleged abuses of the FISA law which reportedly resulted in the surveillance of Americans by the U.S. intelligence community without cause.
The Post & Email heard the announcement on Massachusetts radio station WSIC.
The allegations against the Trump campaign arose before the 2016 election and persisted well into Trump’s first year in office. Trump denies any improper communications with the Russians and, on March 4 of last year, tweeted unexpectedly that his campaign office had been “wiretapped” to much ridicule from the mainstream media.
It later came to light that a short-term adviser to the Trump campaign, Carter Page, was surveilled by means of four FISA warrants, approved by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) without the knowledge that the backbone of the evidence presented to request the spy warrants was commissioned by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Last May, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III was hired to continue the FBI investigation into whether or not Trump aides colluded with the Russians, a probe Trump has termed a “witch hunt.”
The House and Senate Intelligence Committees have each conducted their own respective investigations into the “collusion” issue as well as allegations of FISA “abuse.”
