We know there was “spying” on Americans based on a document the FBI and DOJ knew was salacious and at best, unverified. What we still need to find out is exactly how and why.
Yesterday we told you witnesses are now coming forward to speak to the Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
On today’s show, we discussed the revelation that the author of the Steele Dossier, former British spy Christopher Steele, was interrogated by the DOJ Inspector General’s legal team.
Three attorneys from the Inspector General’s office of the U.S. Department of Justice met in person in early June with dossier author Christopher Steele in Britain, said two sources with direct knowledge of the lawyers’ travels.
Steeles’ report contained sensational, unverified information crafted to discredit President Trump, including accusations of collusion between Russian officials and the Trump campaign to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.
You have to be very clear here. As Attorney General William Barr has already said there was spying on members of the Trump campaign – U.S. citizens. The question is was it illegal? If the basis for spying on Americans was the Steele Dossier known to be illegitimate by FBI officials but presented as credible anyway to obtain a FISA warrant, the answer is yes it was.
Especially if the dossier was financed by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Remember we told you that DOJ official Bruce Ohr – whose wife worked for Fusion GPS, the firm behind the Steele Dossier – testified before Congress that he told senior FBI and DOJ officials that the validity of the Dossier had not been corroborated, and Steele was extremely biased against Trump. Ohr also warned that the dossier had been funded by the Clinton presidential campaign and the DNC.
This was a move to undermine the Trump campaign, and after the election, the incoming Trump Administration.
We couldn’t help but mention former Vice President and Presidential hopeful Joe Biden mistakenly claiming the Russia investigation would have never happened under Obama:
"While Putin's trying to undo our elections, he's actually undoing elections in, in Europe. Look at what's happening in Hungary... look at what's happening! You think that would happen on my watch, on Barack's watch? You can't answer that, but I promise you it wouldn't have. And it didn't."
Except that it did Joe. Russia attempted to interfere with the election while Barack Obama was still President.
