The FBI's surveillance applications argued the government had probable cause to believe Page had committed a crime in acting as an agent of the Russian government, though the Justice Department did not reveal Saturday which laws it thought he had broken.
The 412 pages, mostly heavily redacted, included surveillance applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and warrants surrounding the investigation into Mr Page.
The FBI has justified its motion alleging that Page "has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the Russian government" which allegedly enlisted his services to "undermine and influence the outcome of the 2016 US Presidential election".
Democrats, however, say that the FISA warrant on Page was justified because of his contacts with Russian Federation, and they argue that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department followed proper procedure in seeking and getting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to approve the warrant.
In the course of the Committee's investigation, we have uncovered irregularities with the process by which DOJ and FBI obtained information and sought and renewed three times a warrant pursuant to FISA on USA citizen Carter Page.
Page's denial on Sunday (Monday NZT) was his first public response to the release on Saturday of a wiretap application that said he engaged in "clandestine intelligence activities" on behalf of Russian Federation.
"The evidence is overwhelming and the president needs to say that and act like it", said Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, the chairperson of the House Oversight Committee, in an interview with "Fox News Sunday" aired hours before Trump's tweet.

Last week, US President Donald Trump imposed 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese goods, in an attempt to narrow the trade deficit.
"A disgrace to America", Trump's tweet continued, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. This is so bad that they should be looking at the judges who signed off on this stuff, not just the people who gave it.
Trump tweets: "A Rocket has not been launched by North Korea in 9 months".
Then on Wednesday, the White House sought to clarify President Donald Trump's comments on whether Russian Federation targeted the US, saying that the president's "no" as ABC News' Cecilia Vega asked her question twice was actually a "no" to taking reporters' questions.
In a statement late on Sunday, Nunes said the documents supported his committee's view "that unverified information from the Steele dossier formed an essential part of all the FISA applications on Carter Page".
Rubio also positioned himself opposite President Trump on the controversial Helsinki press conference the president held alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin last week wherein he promoted the Russian leader's denial of United States election interference, but later claimed he misspoke. "Witch Hunt Rigged, a Scam!" "I think he's said it about 1,000 times".
Page has repeatedly denied he made any deals with Russian Federation on behalf of the Trump campaign.
Alleged Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, in which Trump won by electoral college but lost to Clinton by nearly four million popular votes, led to the set-up of the special panel headed by Robert Mueller. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be", the president said last Monday. They included an initial application and requests for renewals that were filed in 2017, after Trump took office.
