Trump on Sunday used the document release to criticize the Justice Department's handling of the Russian Federation investigation, which he once again described in a tweet as a "witch hunt" against his administration.
In more than 400 pages made public Saturday as a result of a Freedom of Information request by media outlets, and first reported by the New York Times, the government laid out its case for secretly monitoring Page in a series of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act - or FISA - warrants, each of which was approved by the FISA court. After a redacted line, the document then continues, "undermine and influence the outcome of the 2016 USA presidential election in violation of US criminal law".
"Totally false. That's directly from the dodgy dossier", Page said, referring to the document assembled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele, which contains a number of unverified claims about then-candidate Trump's relationship with the Russians.
However, after allegations emerged in the so-called Trump dossier that he had served as an intermediary between Russian officials and the president's campaign as they worked to advance Mr Trump's presidential efforts, Mr Page resigned from his role.
The trove of heavily redacted documents with some of the pages completely blacked out reveals that the Federal Bureau of Investigation filed its first request under FISA a month after Page formally relinquished his duties as Trump's advisor.
By March 2016, Mr Trump had identified Mr Page as one of a handful of campaign foreign policy advisers. The FBI was perfectly well aware that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC hired Simpson through their lawyers, and the goal of doing so was to attack candidate Donald Trump. "I'm having trouble finding any small bit of this document that rises above complete ignorance and/or insanity", he said in a text message response to questions about the surveillance request.

Capcom could be hinting at a possible Mega Man X9
By utilizing the game's Power Gear system you can up that to three simultaneous projectiles, giving a new meaning to fire power. Some people brushed it off as an innocuous unused idea until it was fully shown off in the debut trailer for 11.
Conservative critics of special counsel Robert Mueller have argued that the FISA warrant is tainted - based on the opposition research dossier on President Trump and Russian Federation that was paid for by Democrats - and that because the FISA warrant helped launch the FBI investigation into President Trump and Russian Federation, the whole investigation is tainted.
That section cites information from "Source #1" who alleged that during a trip to Moscow in July 2016, Page met secretly with two sanctioned Kremlin insiders, Igor Sechin and Igor Diveykin, as part of a collusion scheme involving the Trump campaign.
"Either he doesn't understand it, or perhaps he is being blackmailed by Russia because they may have compromising information about him or perhaps also, you have a President who really does have strong authoritarian tendencies and maybe he admires the kind of government that Putin is running in Russia", Sanders said. "Witch Hunt Rigged, a Scam!"
Tapper brought up a letter Page wrote where he described himself as an informal adviser to the Kremlin in advance of the 2013 G - 20 meeting in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The surveillance court granted the Justice Department permission to extend its surveillance of Page three times in 2017.
The release of some information related to the Page FISA document in both the Republican and Democratic memos led to lawsuits from groups like Judicial Watch seeking more information from the Page FISA warrant.
Page, 47, has denied being a Russian agent.
