President Trump: “The Dossier is Garbage”
Tuesday, US President Donald Trump slammed a dossier compiled during the election in an atempt to develop a ‘dark file’ about him as a “Crooked Hillary pile of Garbage,” that was used as the basis of going after his campaign.
President Trump Tweeted:
WOW, @foxandfrlends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.” And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!
The former House Ways and Means committee Chairman commented that it has been “long known” that the Steele dossier is “bogus.”
“The question is, how was it funded?” Mr. Chaffetz said. “That question was not answered yet, the 2nd question is did they use it to go to a court and get that court then to allow them to spy on Americans? If that happens, have you gone, well, way, way beyond anything of reason and somebody should be prosecuted for that.”
And if the dossier is “bogus” and there are questions about how it was funded, that raises questions on using what it contained as evidence needed for the FBI to obtain a Foreign intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant needed to eavesdrop on the President’s team.
“Remember, before the Senate, before the House Judiciary Committee, Congressmen Jim Jordan, Ron DeSantis, other people were asking, how was this funded?” said Mr. Chaffetz. “You had people at the senior most level at the Department of Justice saying well, we know but we’re not going to tell you.”
And that, continued Mr. Chaffetz, was a “flashing Red Light that it was funded through more nefarious ties, perhaps with Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”
In October it was revealed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) paid for the research that became the infamous Steele dossier on President Trump.
