Rep. Zeldin NUKES CNN’s ‘Anonymous Sources’, McCabe’s Testimony That Dossier Was Used for FISA Warrants Was Recorded

Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY) took to Twitter following the release of the memo detailing FISA abuse and misconduct against the Trump campaign and asserted that former-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s statements regarding the dossier were recorded during his sworn testimony.

His tweets nuked the claims of CNN’s “anonymous sources” that said McCabe never made the statements laid out in the memo.

As Democrats frantically attempted to discredit the memo, Zeldin wrote that McCabe testified under oath that there would not have been a warrant without the dubious Christopher Steele dossier which was commissioned by Fusion GPS and paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign.

“McCabe did in fact testify under oath that there would not have been a FISA warrant if not for the dossier. It was recorded,” Rep. Zeldin tweeted.

The comments came shortly after CNN’s Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto cited two anonymous sources on air — claiming that McCabe did not say that the dossier was used for the warrants.

Additionally, Rep. Zeldin asserted that the DOJ and FBI had known that the dossier’s source was unreliable and should not have been used, but they filed the warrant application with it anyways. He also stated that the dossier was used to file extensions of the FISA despite already having fired Steele as a source.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, President Donald Trump called the contents of the memo a “disgrace” and stated that “a lot of people” involved in the plot against his campaign “should be ashamed of themselves.”

The memo claims that former-FBI Director James Comey signed three FISA warrant applications for Carter Page and McCabe signed one. Current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein also signed at least one of the FISA warrant applications, as did former-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and former Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente.
