Donald Trump: Russia dossier a 'Crooked Hillary pile of garbage'

Donald Trump: Russia dossier a 'Crooked Hillary pile of garbage'

The Fox News report that Trump is quoting is itself bogus - parts of the dossier seem to be accurate, and the FBI investigation is uncovering more unnerving aspects of Trump's relationship with Russian Federation during his campaign. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION.

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.

The remarks that Trump referenced in the tweet were made by both a Fox News correspondent who was facilitating the morning appear, Todd Piro, and previous congressman and current Fox News supporter Jason Chaffetz. Mueller may not actually be any close to finding any wrongdoing in the White House--we don't know--and Republicans may simply want to ratchet up attacks to polarize, to undermine any potential future indictments or findings by Mueller... "The question is, how was it funded?"

The dossier was compiled by retired British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. After Trump secured the nomination, former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele was hired by contractors for the Clinton campaign to continue the research and compile information regarding Trump's deep ties to Russian Federation. "FBI TAINTED, '" he wrote on Twitter.

During the GOP primary in 2015, research firm Fusion GPS was hired by the the conservative website The Washington Free Beacon to investigate Trump. Fusion GPS was subsequently hired by the Clinton campaign to continue its opposition research into Trump.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has obtained guilty pleas from two Trump associates, including former national security advisor Mike Flynn, for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

At this point Michael Horowitz, the inspector general for the Department of Justice, is reviewing whether McCabe should have taken himself out of the Clinton email investigation because his wife got more than $700,000 in campaign donations from two PACs, including one controlled by a Hillary Clinton ally, during a political race earlier. "I wouldn't put it any more forcefully than that".
