Newly released FBI documents show that the agency likely knew that the Steele dossier was unreliable when they used it to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign in October 2016. “Here’s what we’re looking at: Systematic corruption at the highest level of the Department of Justice and the FBI against President Trump and in favor of Hillary Clinton,” Graham said.
When asked by Sean Hannity during a Fox News interview whether officials “lied purposefully” to get the FISA warrant, Graham said, “The best you could say is that they were incompetent,” adding, “The most likely outcome is that they wanted a result.”
“The FISA warrant against Carter Page was a fraud, I believe,” Graham continued. “The counter-intelligence investigation is something we have to look at very closely.”
The Ohr 302s that were released Thursday showed that Ohr knew Steele was “desperate” that Trump not get elected, but the FISA warrant with multiple renewals was still obtained with Steele’s information.
Indictments are looking more likely now that this information has been released. What Comey did to get those warrants was pure fraud. Increasingly, it’s looking like he knew that the Steele dossier was unreliable and its author biased, but he went forward to investigate Trump anyway.
