Comey FBI Used Clinton-Funded Phony Trump Dossier to Obtain FISA Warrant to Spy on Trump Team
The Washington Post published a bombshell on the discredited Trump dossier on Tuesday.
As Kristinn Taylor reported earlier on The Gateway Pundit the WaPo article claims the 2016 presidential campaign of Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid for the Fusion GPS dossier alleging Russian ties with the presidential campaign of Republican Donald Trump and sordid phony personal smears of Trump.
The Post reported that Clinton campaign and DNC lawyer Marc Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS to continue researching Trump after a Republican donor who originally funded the research pulled out in April 2016.
The Comey FBI used the largely debunked Trump dossier, which alleged Russian ties to the President’s campaign associates, to convince a judge to grant them a FISA warrant, allowing them to secretly monitor Trump campaign official Carter Page.
The Hill reported this in April.
FBI Director James Comey has cited the dossier in some of his briefings with lawmakers in recent weeks as one of the information sources used by his bureau to bolster its probe, U.S. officials briefed on the investigation told CNN… The secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) granted the FBI a warrant to monitor the communications of Page, a former national security adviser on Trump’s campaign.
The court that deals with any topic related to FISA awarded the FBI a warrant to monitor communications involving Page back in 2016, Page was a former national security advisor on the President’s campaign.
The FBI later expanded the investigation to wiretap Trump Tower.
And now we know the dossier was funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC.
