The FBI has released documents related to the surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, as part of an investigation into whether he conspired with the Russian government to undermine the 2016 US election.

A surveillance application filed in October 2016, a month before polling day, said: “The FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government.” Page has denied being an agent of the Russian government and has not been charged with any crime. In an interview with CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Page reiterated his denials and described the FBI’s application to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (Fisa) court as “so ridiculous it’s beyond words”. He accused law enforcement of misleading the court. “I’ve never been an agent of a foreign power by any stretch of the imagination,” he said.(theguardian)…[+]
