According to Circa’s Sara Carter, an investigation into a Trump server found no evidence of Russian collusion. She spoke to Sean Hannity Thursday on Fox News.
“So there were two warrants granted,” Hannity asked. “One was the FISA warrant, explain that and the other warrant, and explain that they found no evidence of any Russian collusion at all, and that’s what your report says?”
“Yeah, basically what we discovered through our sources,” Carter said, “was that the investigation into Trump’s server, which remember, is not inside Trump Tower, but outside Trump Tower, but registered to Trump, showed no evidence of any criminal activity that would warrant any kind of prosecution of anybody in the Trump team. So that was a very short-lived investigation.”
“Now, there was also a separate FISA,” she said, referring to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. “It was an over-all FISA. I don’t have as much information on that. That FISA, though, was a general FISA that covered the whole Russian hacking investigation. Now, whether or not there were people connected to that FISA, we don’t really know. But we know that the warrant to look into Trump’s server found nothing criminal in that investigation.”
“Wasn’t one FISA and one not?” Hannity asked.
“Exactly, one was the FISA,” Carter replied. “The server was not the FISA. It was a regular warrant. The FBI had a traditional investigation when they went into that server. And it was very short-lived. So they didn’t spend a lot of time in the server. They went in there, they didn’t find anything and, in fact, they said they didn’t investigate any emails and they didn’t listen to any phone calls.”
Carter and John Solomon reported their findings at Circa News.
The months-long FBI counterintelligence investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential campaign briefly investigated a computer server tied to Donald Trump’s businesses near the end of the election but has not gathered evidence of election tampering to date that would warrant criminal charges against any of the president’s associates, Circa has learned.
U.S. officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the information, said there is widespread frustration among intelligence professionals who have watched in horror as a normally secretive process has been distorted by media leaks and politicians uneducated about how counterintelligence operations actually work.

President Trump has denied all allegations from critics and Democrats that there appears to unsavory links and interactions to the Russian government. He has decried leaks that led to the resignation of his former national security adviser Mike Flynn for lying about such an interaction with a Russian ambassador. Flynn just recently filed an admission that advocacy he was paid for might have helped the Russian-allied government of Turkey.
