Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) released yet another classified document on Sunday that showed the FBI lied to Congress about the Steele dossier in 2018.
The dossier was unverified, and much of the information it contains has been proven false, but it was used to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign and later leaked to the public.
The FBI failed to mention to Congress, in FISA applications, or to the sources that leaked the document to the public that it had interviewed a source that strongly questioned the document’s veracity and provided countering information that was seemingly ignored by the FBI up to a year later.
The primary sub-source interviewed in 2017 told the FBI he had “no idea” about the source of language attributed to him in the dossier, and said his contacts “never mentioned” other information attributed to them, according to the classified document released by Graham.
It has become crystal clear that the FBI had no factual basis to investigate Trump at all, and it’s about time the entire country knew how the agency twisted the facts and flat out made stuff up when they couldn’t get anything incriminating on Trump.
