The FBI obtained a secret court order last summer on suspicion that Page engaged in intelligence activities on behalf of the Russian government.

The FBI obtained a secret court order last summer to monitor the communications of Donald Trump adviser Carter Page as part of a probe of possible links between Russia and the Trump campaign, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.

The FBI and Justice Department convinced a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power – Russia – unnamed law enforcement and federal officials told the Post.

Page has not been accused of any crimes, the Post reported.

During an interview with The Washington Post in March 2016, Trump identified Page, a former investment banker in Moscow, as a foreign policy adviser to the campaign. His role was later described as "informal," the Post reported.

"This confirms all of my suspicions about unjustified, politically motivated government surveillance," Page told the Post. "I have nothing to hide."

The government's application for the surveillance order targeting Page laid out investigators' basis for believing Page was an agent of the Russian government and he knowingly engaged in intelligence activities on behalf of Moscow, the Post reported.

According to the Post, the application cited contacts Page had with a Russian intelligence operative in New York City in 2013. In addition, the application said Page had other contacts with Russian operatives that have not been publicly disclosed, the Post reported.

Page dismissed what he called "the dodgy dossier" of false allegations, the Post reported.

Page is the only American to have had his communications directly targeted with a FISA warrant in 2016 as part of the Russia probe, the Post reported.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Refugee Complains:
‘Too Many Laws’ In Western World

 During a recent interview with local media in Australia, a Sudanese refugee and mother of six suggested that the Australian government deserves the blame for her eldest son’s propensity for crime.

According to Nine News, Asha Awya’s eldest son is an unemployed gang member who has spent time in prison. Instead of pinning the blame for her son’s actions on him, however, Awya feels the Australian government deserves it for passing “too many laws.”

She said so during an appearance last week on the Australian program “A Current Affair,” where she also appeared to slam actual Australians for allegedly not making it easy for refugees to assimilate.

“They (her kids) came from a very traumatized environment, and coming to Australia, trying to fit in with the religion and the friends around them at school, is very challenging,” she said. “We have all these laws, so it’s just very confusing, and I feel sorry for the kids because they don’t know how to deal with this.”

But that’s not all. Awya also complained that the government provides her with too little money.

“The Centrelink money is not enough,” she said, referencing a welfare program operated by the Australian government’s Department of Human Services.

“Sometimes I cut some of their entertainment,” she added, saying in effect that she sometimes stops handing out allowances so as to reduce her costs.

And this, she believes, only serves to incentivize her son’s desire to commit crime.

“If mum always not giving me money, there’s no pocket money, then maybe I have to find a way of stealing and get my own money,” she said, articulating what she believes goes through her son’s mind.

So even though the Australian government graciously (and perhaps naively) allowed this Sundanese woman to migrate to the country, she basically resents this same government because it refuses to lavishly provide for her and her family’s every single need, including their desire for entertainment.

Behold the perfect example of a spoiled-rotten, ungrateful refugees, ladies and gentlemen.

You know, the media often accuse those who criticize their respective governments for allowing refugees to flood their neighborhoods of harboring racist views. If only it were that simple.

Many Westerners, including your truly — a citizen whose family immigrated to the West from India over three decades ago — take issue with the behavior of refugees.

Besides making nary an effort to assimilate, many refugees wind up on welfare, eschewing hard work and effort for a life of government subsistence and oftentimes a life of crime as well.

Now, consider what Awya told “A Current Affair” and answer me this: Is it really “racist” that Westerners such as yours truly prefer that migrants such as her remain in their own country instead of being allowed to migrate to ours?

Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what you think about this Sudanese refugee’s disgusting lack of gratitude.

What do you think about this migrant trying to blame her son’s behavior on the Australian government? Scroll down to comment below!
