Senate Intel Committee Admits They STILL Don’t Know if Trump-Russia Dossier is Credible
The Senate Intel Committee cannot properly ascertain whether the Trump-Russia dossier is credible because the author who compiled the pile of garbage, Christopher Steele, refuses to cooperate with investigators.
The Daily Caller reported:
“Unfortunately, the committee has hit a wall,” North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, the chairman of the committee, said during a press conference on Wednesday.
“We have on several occasions made attempts to contact Mr. Steele, to meet with Mr. Steele,” said Burr, who added that attempts made by he and committee vice-chairman Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat, to meet with the former British spy have been unsuccessful.
“The committee cannot really decide the credibility of the dossier without understanding things like who paid for it, who are your sources and sub-sources,” Burr added.
Republican Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) also said in his presser Wednesday that there is no evidence of Russian collusion into the 2016 US presidential election.
But Burr said the the committee will keep the investigation open!
The Russian hoax continues!
Burr is a useful idiot.
Democrats want to ultimately shut down conservative websites.
And Burr is too dense to understand it.
As previously reported, on September 22nd a third deadline passed for the FBI and Justice Department to hand over subpoenaed documents to the House Intelligence Committee relating to the debunked Russian dossier.
The big question is, did the FBI actually use this garbage dossier to obtain a FISA warrant like reports suggest?
The Obama FBI used a secret court order to wiretap Manafort. We the people deserve to know if the debunked dossier was used to obtain this FISA warrant in order to spy on Trump’s camp.
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.
We also know that Fusion GPS, the company that commissioned the dossier is a Democrat oppo research firm. Via Paul Sperry of the New York Post:
A secretive Washington firm that commissioned the dubious intelligence dossier on Donald Trump is stonewalling congressional investigators trying to learn more about its connections to the Democratic Party.
Fusion GPS was on the payroll of an unidentified Democratic ally of Clinton when it hired a long-retired British spy to dig up dirt on Trump. In 2012, Democrats hired Fusion GPS to uncover dirt on GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. And in 2015, Democrat ally Planned Parenthood retained Fusion GPS to investigate pro-life activists protesting the abortion group.
Here is more background on the now-discredited Trump Dossier.
With just ten days to go before he was sworn in as America’s forty-fifth president, the political establishment went nuclear on President-elect Donald Trump with a double-barreled blast of “leaked” “intelligence” reports by CNN and BuzzFeed.
The documents contained explosive, but unverified, opposition research that alleged intel ties between Russia and Trump and also claims Russia holds sexual blackmail material over Trump.
One of the most outrageous unconfirmed allegations in the report claims the Russians recorded Trump watching Russian prostitutes urinate on each other in a Moscow hotel room previously occupied by President and Mrs. Barack Obama.
And the liberal media and Secret Service and John McCain believed this nonsense?
