Steele Dossier Is 'Bogus'

  • NATION-NOW     Trump repeats 'no collusion' with Russia says investigation makes U.S. 'look very bad'             'No collusion Trump insists in NYT interview

Early Tuesday morning, before he teed off from his Florida resort, Trump fired off a tweet laden with capital letters about the "bogus" Steele dossier, attacking both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Hillary Clinton in the process.

In October, The Washington Post reported that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party had funded the investigation, which came to light after the November election and amid allegations about links between Trump and the Kremlin.

Trump has also targeted the FBI in recent weeks for what many Republican lawmakers believe was a biased and politically motivated approach to its investigation of collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

This was the "dossier" that some members of Congress suggest was used as "evidence" by the Obama administration before a FISA court in order to obtain permission to spy on the Trump campaign in search of evidence that would be used to support Hillary Clinton's eventual unsuccessful campaign.

That report stated that the FBI was declining to repudiate the dossier, which it partially relied on during its investigation of the Trump campaign during the election.

Even though the president misspelled the Twitter handle in question, he was responding to a segment on Fox News' morning gossip show, which sought to discredit the infamous dossier.

The 35-page document was reportedly circulating in Washington for months before BuzzFeed took the controversial decision in January 2017 to publish its entirety.

"This could simply be something like an insurance policy".

Meanwhile, President Trump's legal team makes a prediction on the Special Counsel's investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. Global Positioning System then reportedly hired ex-British spy Steele to write the claims, which included salacious allegations that have yet to be documented to have a basis in fact.

The Trump administration and GOP lawmakers have criticized the veracity of the Steele dossier, asserting that it was compiled on behalf of the Clinton campaign and used by the FBI to investigate the Trump campaign.

The report continued, addressing Jacoby's claim: "It's hardly a simple assertion of family pride; it goes directly to the nature of what became known as the 'Steele dossier, ' on which the Russiagate narrative is founded".

ABC News detailed last August that Fusion GPS was paid by a still-obscure Republican amid that gathering's primaries to uncover soil on Trump.

White Christmas for parts of NY area
