Exclusive: Sources close to the intelligence community report that at least six separate FISA warrants were granted in the case of Donald Trump and his team’s collusion with Russia. A separate source confirms that the FISA warrant I reported on November 7th at Heat Street, granted against two Russian banks, was in fact two separate FISA warrants, granted on the same day. These two warrants form part of the six total granted warrants sources report, although, these sources say, there may be further FISA warrants both granted and renewed.
On Jan 11th Paul Wood of the BBC reported exclusively that the exact date of the FISA warrant against these banks – now clarified by sources to have been two separate warrants, one for each bank, Alfa Bank and Silicon Valley Bank – was October 15th. My story designated the date merely as October.

As the Trump-Russia prosecutions come closer, further details are emerging from varied sources.
Today (Sat, May 6th) on the AM Joy show on MSNBC, Joy Ann Reid became the first national broadcaster to refer to Grand Juries possibly summoned in the case of Donald Trump’s team and its collusion with the Russian government.
She referenced the tweet of Claude Taylor, whose sources had told him exclusively that Federal Grand Juries had almost completed their work. Taylor’s sources had told him that state and federal Grand Juries were convening in the case of the Trump team’s collusion with Russia.
I can add to the story that sources have pointed me at PACER records in both the Eastern District of Virginia and the Southern District of New York, which I have verified independently. In his testimony to the Judiciary Committee this past week, Mr. Comey specified that the FBI was working with ‘two main sets of prosecutors’ – one being the Eastern District of Virginia, popularly known as the ‘rocket docket’.
I have independently verified that these cases do exist. In the Eastern District of Virginia, “Case Name Not on File” was filed on April 17th, with the Movant listed as the U.S. Government.
In the Southern District of New York, also on April 17th a RICO case was filed, with the plaintiff not listed. In the Eastern District of Virginia, the Movant is publicly listed as the US Government – there is less information in the New York Southern District Court.
Both of these cases are, at the time of writing, available on search records without access to the PACER system.
Here is the publicly available information for the Eastern District of Virginia Court:
and here is the information for the RICO case in New York:
There will be more on this developing story as we receive it.

I also replied with a tweet to you–Case numbers from Justia are wrong, unless there is a Philippines bank involved in this.
There is a Philippines bank involved, so thank you for confirming we got the case numbers right 🙂
