Comey Leaks UNBELIEVABLE Piece Of Information on Warrant For Infamous Steele Dossier
The Steele Dossier controversy continues. This time we are getting a closer look at how the FBI was run under Comey.
Comey claims that the FISA Warrants used against Page were done properly. Yet in the testimony he gave on Friday, he claims that a key piece of source material to get the FISA Warrants, The Steele Dossier, was not verified evidence.
Congressman John Ratcliffe brought up how the FISA warrants were handled.
Mr. Ratcliffe: “Well, when you talk about getting a warrant and the PC and the importance there, isn’t it important for the judge to be able to weigh the reliability and the credibility
of all the sources for the information, particularly those that saw or heard the relevant information that serves as the predicate for seeking the warrant?”
Mr. Comey: “Not necessarily. I mean, I can imagine — I think I’ve dealt with warrants where you just identify that your primary CI, or primary source, has subsources, and so long as
the court is aware of that phenomenon and that you’re speaking to the reliability of the primary source, to my mind, that’s a totally legit warrant application.”
So the courts signed off on a warrant to spy on Page with probable cause that was hearsay. The Steele Dossier despite being unverified was crucial to the FBI. In fact, Ratcliffe revealed that according to Sally Moyer, a general counsel lawyer, the unverified dossier was the kicker that allowed the FBI to obtain the warrants. The courts were opposed without it.
Mr. Ratcliffe: “If she (Moyer) testified — and I’ll represent to you that she testified that the FISA court — it was 49-51, maybe 50-50, that the FISA court would have approved the warrant without the Steele dossier. If I represent that to you, does that cause you concern that the court was relying on a document that was largely unverified and minimally corroborated?”
Mr. Comey: “No. Because it asked me to assume the truth of the last part of your question, and I don’t know that to be the case.”
“Comey told lawmakers that “work was ongoing” by the time he was fired on May 9, 2017, to “to replicate, either rule in or rule out” as much of the dossier as possible.
He said that by the time he was fired on May 9, 2017, he “still didn’t know whether there was anything to it,” referring to the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Kremlin.”
So they used the Steele Dossier to spy on an American as part of their probable cause. But Comey up until the day he was fired was unable to verify it’s validity. Makes you wonder how they were able to use it as evidence if it is uncorroborated hearsay.
