A new stunning report from the United States Senate Intelligence committee shows that the FBI put “unjustified credence” in the Steele dossier.
The findings underline the Bureau’s willingness to to embrace an anti-Trump narrative despite the highly questionable and fabricated evidence being used. The report further supports the “witch hunt” claims President Trump earlier against the investigation.
“Over the last three years, the Senate Intelligence Committee conducted a bipartisan and thorough investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election and undermine our democracy,” said acting Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Marco Rubio”We interviewed over 200 witnesses and reviewed over 1 million pages of documents. No probe into this matter has been more exhaustive.”
Rubio continued, “We can say, without any hesitation, that the Committee found absolutely no evidence that then-candidate Donald Trump or his campaign colluded with the Russian government to meddle in the 2016 election. What the Committee did find, however, is very troubling.”
Rubio called out the FBI for its “acceptance and willingness to rely on the ‘Steele Dossier’ without verifying its methodology or sourcing.”
“The FBI used the dossier in a FISA application and renewals, and advocated for it to be included in the Intelligence Community Assessment before taking the necessary steps to validate assumptions about Steele’s credibility,” said the report via the committee.
The findings are a massive hit to the Democrat narrative and will likely be underreported by the main stream media.
