House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes told Sean Hannity on his show last night that the FBI and Justice Department omitted ‘exculpatory evidence’ on Carter Page in their spy applications.
Exculpatory evidence is evidence favorable to the defendant in a criminal trial that exonerates or tends to exonerate the defendant of guilt. It is the opposite of inculpatory evidence, which tends to prove guilt.
This discovery is an outgrowth of the potential FISA abuse by the DoJ/FBI.
Bruce Ohr is also becoming more important in this investigation.
The top agent at the time, Ohr was feeding dossier information from British spy Christopher Steele to the FBI, even after Steele was dismissed by the FBI.
“There is exculpatory evidence that we have seen, of classified documents that needs to be declassified,” Nunes said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
“Exculpatory in nature in what way? Exculpatory in what way?” Hannity asked.
