GOP senators request criminal investigation of Trump dossier author © Greg Nash Two Republican senators are asking the Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into Christopher Steele, the author of a controversial research opposition dossier on President Trump.
Sens. Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray asking that they investigate if the former MI6 agent lied to federal authorities.
"I dont take lightly making a referral for criminal investigation. But, as I would with any credible evidence of a crime unearthed in the course of our investigations, I feel obliged to pass that information along to the Justice Department for appropriate review, Grassley said in a statement.
Graham added that "after reviewing how Mr. Steele conducted himself in distributing information contained in the dossier and how many stop signs the DOJ ignored in its use of the dossier, I believe that a special counsel needs to review this matter."
I’d say Jan 1 2018 was the turning of the tide.
Now we see how the other side likes it.
Now Sessions and the DOJ must do their job.
No more napping, no more pot, do the job President Trump hired you to do.
These guys make Jeb seek high energy.
Trump et al are “steeling” the momentum of the Dims. LOL.
And so it begins...
Did Lindsay clear this with McNasty?
More good news!
sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray
Rosenstein- Dead letter office and Wray got a LOT of Rat votes to confirm l expect nothing to come from this.
Only this time there are real crimes, not make-believe one.
Let’s see...did you also predict that Roy Moore would win and that Al Franken would never resign? I lose track of all the missed predictions here on FR.
This plan is starting to come together and I am loving it!! flying very low under the cloud of the wolfe “book” is the sword of Damocles heading for the exposed neck of Hillary Clinton and her entire gang.
This report explains why Sessions had to recuse himself. Sessions himself was likely a target of the illicit FISA surveillance that was done as a result of this Fusion GPS dossier. He cannot prosecute a criminal case where he is one of the victims.
First criminal referral that I can recall.
We will see what Alfred E. Sessions(What Me Worry) does with it.
I’m sure Rosenstein will put this investigation at the top of his to do list.
I crack me up..
Excellent point. And the story makes reference to a letter that Grassley and Graham have sent to Rosenstein and Wray, not Sessions. It appears that the letter asks for a review of the evidence, and the appointment of a special prosecutor if the evidence warrants. I'm not sure what evidence that Graham and Grassley have seen, but it sounds explosive.
Lynda Graham knows McCain knows where the skeletons are buried but also know he can’t remember much of anything right now and not for long at any rate.
If you think he's going to just let this fade into oblivion, you don't even know the first thing about the man.
