    Hillary Clinton and the DNC both claimed they knew nothing about the Trump-Russia dossier when it was published by Buzzfeed in January 2017. The New York Times — famous for their fake news — reported that Hillary and the DNC were unaware that their law firm Perkins Coie was working on the dossier. Officials from the Clinton campaign and the D.N.C. have said they were unaware that Perkins Coie facilitated the research on their behalf, even though the law firm was using their money to pay for it. Even Mrs. Clinton only found about Mr. Steele’s research after Buzzfeed published...

    The top lawyer for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign told House Intelligence Committee investigators that he was aware of Fusion GPS's plans to have British ex-spy Christopher Steele brief reporters about his controversial anti-Trump research during the 2016 contest. The December 2017 testimony of Marc Elias, the Clinton campaign's general counsel, was revealed through the release of dozens of Russia investigation witness interviews last week. Elias, the head of the Perkins Coie political law group, hired Fusion on behalf of the campaign. Then-Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina asked whether Elias knew that Fusion sent Steele to talk to media outlets...

    Christopher Steele’s private intelligence firm, Orbis Business Intelligence, accused President Trump of making “false claims” during a White House speech Thursday about the former British spy’s infamous dossier . . . “He wildly exaggerated our fees and, contrary to his claims we have never stated any of our reporting is ‘fake’. We stand by the integrity of our research on Kremlin interference in the 2016 election and support for Trump,” the tweet continued.

    Late Senator John McCain provided disgraced former FBI chief James Comey with five separate reports from Christopher Steele that the FBI didn’t previously possess related to unsubstantiated allegations of collusion between Russia and President Trump’s 2016 campaign, the Justice Department’s recent Inspector General report revealed. There have long been questions about why it was necessary for McCain to pass Steele’s anti-Trump dossier to Comey on December 9, 2016, several weeks after the November 2016 presidential election. By then, Steele had already met numerous times with FBI agents to provide them with his controversial reports. Steele, however, was terminated as an...

    Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the infamous “pee dossier” on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, was first hired by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to obtain damaging information on Paul Manafort — weeks before the firm hired him to produce his now-discredited, conspiracy-weaving dossier. The explosive admission was made by Fusion GSP co-founders Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch in the pair’s recently-released book — Crime in Progress — and highlighted in a Monday report by American Greatness. “Weeks before Trump tapped Manafort to run his campaign, Christopher Steele had hired Fusion for help investigating Manafort,” write Fritsch and...

    Now that President Trump has been exonerated of the false accusations of collusion and obstruction, it is time to investigate the investigators. The White House has justly praised the outcome of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation for clearing the president of the odious charges that have hung over his presidency since even before his inauguration. The Mueller report overall was favorable to the president, but it also should be remembered as the Mueller special counsel’s final abuse of power. There were nearly 200 pages of irrelevancies about Russia collusion, but it couldn’t disguise the fact that all of those alleged...

    Three Senate committee chairmen demanded answers this week about the role played by the Justice and State departments in furthering the goals of Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the discredited anti-Trump dossier that helped launch the special counsel’s investigation. Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham fired off inquiries to the Justice Department inspector general and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, while Sens. Charles E. Grassley and Ron Johnson, heads of the Finance and Homeland Security committees, respectively, sent their own letter to Mr. Pompeo and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Thursday.

McCabe that the United Kingdom’s intelligence services spied on the 2016 Trump campaign, and then passed on information to the Obama administration. The intelligence sharing was through the so-called ‘Five Eyes’ cooperative of the intelligence services of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

    According to a Wednesday report, President Barack H. Obama’s administration teamed up with intelligence agencies in the United Kingdom to spy on now-President Donald J. Trump’s campaign. “[Former CIA Analyst Larry] Johnson said there is a cooperation agreement between the intelligence services of the U.S., U.K., Canada, New Zealand, and Australia – the so-called Five Eyes club – that allowed Obama to access surveillance of U.S. citizens as foreign-gathered intelligence,” according to OANN reporter Neil W. McCabe, who interviewed Johnson. McCabe described the tactic as a way of circumventing Americans’ Fourth Amendment rights to unreasonable searches and seizures, or broadly,...

    SNIP “What I found out recently, which was really quite surprising, the dossier, which really has got a lot of garbage in it and Mueller found that to be the case, early in building the intelligence-community assessment on Russian interference, in an early draft, they actually put the dossier on page two in kind of a breakout box,” Woodward said. “I think it was the CIA pushing this. Real intelligence experts looked at this and said ‘No, this is not intelligence, this is garbage,’ and they took it out,” he continued. “But in this process, the idea that they would...

    The FBI reportedly had doubts about one of the Trump dossier author's top sources after an interview in January 2017. The dossier, compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele, contained salacious and unverified claims about President Trump's ties to Russia. It was used by the FBI obtain a series of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants to wiretap one-time Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. The first warrant application was submitted in October 2016, after which there were three renewals at three-month intervals, including in January, April, and June 2017. That means at least two renewal applications were submitted after the FBI met...
