As previously reported, former British intelligence agent and author of the Fusion GPS dossier, Christopher Steele, penned a separate memo on then-candidate Donald Trump, based on information given to him by a Hillary Clinton contact and unnamed Obama State Department official.
Chairman Nunes (R-CA) spoke with Fox News host Laura Ingraham Tuesday evening after Grassley released a less redacted version of the Senate Judiciary memo on Christopher Steele.
Nunes said the first phase of the House Intel investigation was the FISA abuse and the next phase is looking at the irregularities at Obama’s State Department.
Chairman Nunes revealed John Kerry had been briefed on the ‘second dossier’.
” There were comments over the weekend from people from within the State Department that said John Kerry had been briefed on the dossier–the new dossier whatever this new dossier is and that they also provided it to the FBI,” Nunes said.

Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova also said on Tuesday evening to Laura Ingraham that Obama State Department officials helped feed the FBI false information through dossier author Christopher Steele. Such information was then used by the FBI to obtain FISA warrants to surveil the Trump campaign.
DiGenova: The Grassley-Graham memo establishes beyond any doubt that the FBI knowingly deceived the FISA court about the information it was presenting to them, lied to them about the fact that it was verified information, which it was not — which the law requires. And now we know that additional Clinton allies, including Sidney Blumenthal, were involved in the transmission of false information, unverified information to the FBI through State Department officials. Somebody’s going to have to go to prison.”
In a letter released Monday, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) revealed Steele complied an anti-Trump memo based on information given to him by a Hillary Clinton contact and Obama State Department official.
The fish rots from the head down. The corruption leads all the way up to Obama’s desk.
