Steele Dossier Is 'Bogus'

On Christmas Eve, Trump attacked FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who now plans to retire amid increasing criticism from Republicans.

And if the dossier is "bogus" and there are questions about how it was funded, that raises questions on using what it contained as evidence needed for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to obtain a Foreign intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant needed to eavesdrop on the president's team.

Citing the morning television program Fox & Friends, Trump again blamed the Democrats and presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for the dossier that surfaced just before his inauguration on January 20. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION.

"WOW", Trump tweeted, tagging and apparently quoting his favorite show "Fox and Friends" Tuesday.

Trump appeared amazed that the dossier was used to accuse his campaign of colluding with Russian Federation.

"How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin' James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife's campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?"

Schilling says he asked her what the money was for, and she reportedly said said "You know, Christmas is coming". Keaton is an inspiration to the more than 3.2 million students who fall victim to bullying each year.

Mother Jones editor and reporter David Corn pushed back on talking about leakers, but flatly told Politico Baker was not his source.

"The president's tweets are an insurance policy for the American people to make sure that its leading law enforcement organization remains unbiased", Caputo said on CNN's "New Day".

During the GOP primary in 2015, research firm Fusion GPS was hired by the the conservative website The Washington Free Beacon to investigate Trump.

On Jan. 11, BuzzFeed News obtained and published a dossier compiled by retired British intelligence officer Christopher Steele during the 2016 presidential race.

Allegations contained within the dossier that former Trump advisor Carter Page met with Russian officials in the months before the 2016 election were subsequently confirmed by Page himself during testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.

Trump branded the dossier "fake news" and claimed it was a "political witch hunt".
