Skip to comments.Mueller Still Relying on Discredited Steele Dossier
Posted on 02/22/2018 11:55:58 AM PST by mojito
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is continuing to use a controversial 35-page dossier financed by the Democratic National Committee and the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign as a "road map for investigative leads, sources familiar with his investigation say.
Muellers team has also used information gleaned from surveillance court-approved wiretaps on former Trump adviser Carter Page that were secured by citing material in the dossier, the sources say.
And a detail previously reported last fall that Muellers investigators traveled overseas last year to debrief the dossiers London-based author, Christopher Steele, a former British spy takes on a new cast with the disclosure this month that FBI agents abruptly stopped using Steele as an informant in late 2016 after concluding that he had lied to them.
The FBIs reliance on Steeles past credibility was misplaced, since he concealed from the FBI unauthorized media contacts with numerous outlets and his anti-Trump bias, according to an addendum to the so-called FISA memo released Feb. 2 by the Republican majority on the House Intelligence Committee.
Special Counsels Office spokesman Peter Carr told RealClearInvestigations, We will decline to comment on Steele and the dossier.

The Mueller investigation is relying on a source who, as a foreign national, illegally interfered in a US election to a far greater extent than the Russian trolls Mueller actually indicted. Oh, Steele also lied to the FBI, the very crime that Papadopolous and Flynn have been forced to plead guilty to.
Shut Mueller down. Should have been done long ago.
Mueller, Mr. Uranium 1 for the CLinton Foundation
and the CLinton TREASON, would OBVIOUSLY rely
upon discredited material.
It is what they do where he “works”.
They f each other, f Americans, and f the President
duly ELECTED, as they coverup murder,slavery,
rape of children, treason, and now: sedition.
Fruit of the Poisonous Tree. Seems pretty straightforward to request to dismiss Mueller but crickets from DOJ
Simple (don’t worry about any impeachment), fire Mulehead and Rosenstein NOW.
Fruit of the Poisonous Tree......................
What is unreal is (1) how these “investigations” into the Trump campaign and presidency got started in the first place, and (2) how they still continue even after everyone who has been paying attention knows the whole sordid truth. No one seems to care that it was the Clinton campaign and a cabal of Leftists in government and media who spun the whole series of lies together. No one has or will ever be held to account for a genuine attempted coup. It still goes on with no end in sight and even the president of the United States is powerless to stop it without putting himself in legal jeopardy. Who in our time will forcefully say to Mueller at long last, sir, have you no shame?
Looks like they are just going to ignore the FISA Memo and proceed as if Nunes had never written it.
And using source info gained from wiretapping Carter Page and his contacts using faked-up FISA warrants based on the same liar’s dossier
Beam me up, Scotty
Mueller has made a career out of his witch hunts and will continue until someone cuts up his credit cards and pulls the plug on his circus. Huge waste of our money.
Is this Mueller’s only job right now?
What kind of investigation takes over a year to conclude? Especially when you have unlimited resources at your disposal?
They want this to drag this out at least through 2018 midterms.
Simple (dont worry about any impeachment), fire Mulehead and Rosenstein NOW.
AGREED , and appoint a new special counsel to investigate HRC/Obama/DOJ/FBI
Mueller is addicted to those huge US govt paychecks.
He will do anything to keep the tax dollars coming.
Is it too late to bring back Eric Holder as AG? He wouldve never put up with this crap. Say what you want about the guy, Holder had balls unlike our current Recuser General.
