President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager is wondering why no second special counsel is investigating whether the Obama administration broke the rules in its surveillance of Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.

Corey Lewandowski was on “Fox & Friends” Saturday to say there is “no question” another special counsel is required because the Department of Justice and FBI “probably did not follow proper procedure” when it asked for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Page because law enforcement authorities claimed he was implicated in their investigation of Russian meddling.

“If that is the case, then there is no question that an additional special counsel should be put in place to review this process and hold people accountable. This is absolutely imperative,” Lewandowski insisted.

He asked, “What are we waiting for? Let’s get this started right away.”

House Intelligence Committee Republicans continue to ask why a FISA warrant was issued on the basis of the now discredited Trump dossier, a smear document commissioned and paid for by the Democrats.

Although Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Friday night that investigators are “going to get to work on this and get to the bottom of it,” Lewandowski said Sessions must “move faster.”
