One Classified Document Will Prove the FBI Knew the Steele Dossier Was Junk


In an interview with Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham said that he could erase all doubts about the FBI and its abuse of the FISA court with just a single classified document. Graham said that he was working to declassify the sensitive document so that the American people could see how the FBI used the Steele dossier as evidence for a warrant, even though they knew the dossier was nothing but partisan junk.

“There’s a document that’s classified that I’m going to try to get unclassified that takes the dossier, all the pages of it, and it has verification to one side,” Graham said. “There really is no verification, other than media reports that were generated by reporters that received the dossier. So, the bottom line is the dossier has never been independently confirmed. It was used to get a warrant. They knew the author of the dossier was on the Democrat Party payroll. He hated Trump; they got the warrant anyway. Most Americans should be very upset about that. I’m very upset about it. And we’re going to get to the bottom of it.”

Much about the FBI’s shady dealings with the dossier and the FISA court are already in the public domain. For instance, thanks to the intrepid work of Rep. Devin Nunes, we know that the FBI went out of their way to downplay the dossier’s political origins. We also know that they used a Yahoo News article about the dossier to give the information extra credence with the court. Only problem? The dossier’s author, Christopher Steele, was the direct source for that article.

Congress is also aware of intense problems with the way the Justice Department handled the Carter Page warrants. According to The Hill’s John Solomon, Steele admitted to a State Department confidant that he was working for Trump’s political enemies on business that needed to be done before the election. Graham alluded to this bombshell in the interview.

“But for the dossier, there would be no warrant against Carter Page,” Graham said. “The meeting on October 11 was 10 days before the FISA warrant application. So the FBI was on notice that their confidential informant went to the Department of State to urge the Department of State to take the dossier and leak it to the public to affect the election. That’s about as sick as it gets.”

Attorney General William Barr has reportedly put the U.S. Attorney for Colorado to task investigating the disturbing story of how the FBI came to probe the Trump campaign in the first place. With that investigation, the DOJ’s Inspector General report, and the work Graham is doing with the Senate Intelligence Committee, we may get to the bottom of this scandal at last. And then, hopefully, we will see some heads roll.

  1. WHAT were the FICA Court Judges thinking when they issued this warrant ? The Judges were hand picked by Judge Roberts, however we were never told their names or their qualification in this matter. Is this being looked into ?
    This entire FUCA warrant case is as despicable and as dirty as it gets in politics. The Kavanaugh circus was disgrace to all Americans but this involves overthrowing our present form of government to justify destroying Trump. And America along with it id needed. This IS treason !

    • Totally agree with you Rocky. Although I would love to see a complete list of the treasonous asses that were responsible for this whole fiasco in the first place. I’m pretty damned sure that O-bummers name would be in there somewhere.

  2. The FBI has a ton of fence mending to do. Comey was a total lout, and self-absorbed traitor. He and other senior FBI officials should be held up to the law on all their transgressions, and, indeed, criminal acts. Coup plotters and taitors in the FBI? What in the hell is going on? Heads must roll and bodies must be burned at the stake. This all stinks to high heaven.

  3. I totally agree with all of the above comments! But will the American people ever get the truth? The Dems have become quite adept at lying, and big money bribes to keep their secrets. If there’s two people who should be indicted, investigated and prosecuted its the two with Clinton as their last name, but there is still no investigation into behavior that would have gotten 90% of us locked up! So, I’m not holding my breath that there will be any action taken against the FBI (Comey, Strokz, Paige), Clapper, Podesta, Clinton’s, etc.

  4. The FISA Judges could have done more inquiry but that is not the ways warrants get issued. Normally time is of the essence and they base their decisions on what they are told by law enforcement and prosecutors. We know now that the FBI and DOJ lied to get the warrant. It only seems fair that some people get jailed after the Mueller Investigation jailed people for lying.

    • These are the people that Nadler’s Judiciary Committee in the House should be going after.
      He should, if he had half a functioning brain, be initiating IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS against the cognizant FISA JUDGE – Rosemary Collier – for incompetence and dereliction of duty.
      Let us see if he has the courage to take on the Judiciary.

  5. It will be shock to most Americans if anyone is held accountable for these actions. It would also delight many Americans if prosecutions actually happen. We can all think of many well known politicians who we think should have been prosecuted but never were. When do we actually start charging and aggressively attacking anti-American activists? One who rubs elbows with many of Washington’s elite is George Soros. Yet he roams all over our country spewing hated for our country and funding a great many anti-American activities. Several reports have been published accusing him of funding many of the Marches to our southern border. He certainly doesn’t hide physically or ideologically.
