FILE - In a Nov. 2, 2017, file photo, Carter Page, a foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, speaks with reporters following a day of questions from the House Intelligence Committee, on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Justice Department has concluded that it should have ended its surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser earlier than it did because it lacked “insufficient predication" to continue eavesdropping. That's according to an order made public Thursday by a secretive intelligence court. The FBI obtained a warrant in 2016 to eavesdrop on former Trump national security aide Carter Page on suspicions that he was secretly a Russian agent. The Justice Department renewed the warrant three times, including during the early months of the Trump administration. But the Justice Department's inspector general has harshly criticized the FBI's handing of those applications. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
