Senate Judiciary Chair Grassley Confirms Russia Dossier “Unverified in 2016” When Obama FBI Used it to Obtain FISA Warrant to Spy on Trump

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) confirmed Wednesday from the Senate floor the Russia dossier was “unverified in 2016” when Obama’s FBI/DOJ used it to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump and his private associates.

 

Paul Sperry of the New York Post reported:

“BREAKING: Senate Judiciary chair Grassley today from floor of Senate explained that his criminal referral vs Steele is based on contradictions in statements he made in a UK libel suit against him & ones he made to FBI agents during briefings about the dossier he wrote for Hillary”

“Sen. Grassley: “We start by assuming government documents are true until we see evidence to the contrary. If those [FBI] documents are not true, and there are serious discrepancies that are no fault of Mr. Steele, then we have another problem — an arguably more serious one””

“BREAKING: Sen. Grassley today on floor confirmed that the anti-Trump, Hillary-funded, Russian-sourced dossier was “unverified in 2016,” when the Obama DOJ/FBI used it to obtain FISA (foreign espionage) warrants to electronically eavesdrop on Trump campaign advisers (US citizens)”

Sperry concludes Hillary Clinton coordinated the FBI hit.

“DNC & Hillary Clinton campaign had contractual control over how the product they paid for was used & disseminated. That means Simpson & Steele had to first consult with Clinton campaign lawyers before taking the dossier to the FBI & to the media. Ergo, Hillary coordinated FBI hit”

Senator Grassley blasted the FBI for lying.

“Senator Grassley in floor speech earlier today complained that “the FBI is falsely claiming” that a memo seeking a criminal referral on Steele for making false statements to the FBI contains classified information and therefore cannot be shared with the press or public.”

Senate Judiciary Chair Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sent a letter to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray in early January demanding they investigate if Christopher Steele lied to federal authorities.
