Calls are growing for an immediate special prosecutor to be appointed after it was disclosed a FISA warrant was obtained to monitor Trump adviser Carter Page.
Rep. Ted Lieu tweeted:
Warrant on Carter Page shows we no longer have smoke. We have extreme heat. Acting Atty General must appoint a Special Prosecutor NOW. https://t.co/tnFbFn9OWy

FISA judge appointed by Chief Justice reviewed evidence & concluded probable cause exists a Trump member was agent of Russia. This is a BFD. https://t.co/T9UlVNcYOO

The FISA warrant means that a judge ruled that there was probable cause that a member of Trump’s campaign was an agent of Russia. This is the connection that many have been awaiting. The Russia scandal is no longer about circumstantial evidence, smoke but no fire.
Republicans are running out ways to dodge on Trump’s Russia scandal. Expect calls to grow for a special prosecutor to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia in the coming days.
