FOIA Request Unearths the Truth About the FBI and the Steele Dossier

New information has been found that shows the Steele Dossier was meant to hurt Trump and that the FBI knew it was a political document that had no merit. Yet they still went forward and used the document as evidence in order to spy on the president.

Officials at the FBI and (Department of Justice) DOJ were well aware the dossier was a lie — from very early on in the process all the way to when they made the conscious decision to include it in a FISA application,” Meadows said Tuesday”

A new document has been uncovered through a FOIA request by Citizens United. The document gives Deputy Assistant Secretay of State, Katheleen Kavalec’s account on how things went with the Steele Dossier.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec’s written account of her Oct. 11, 2016, meeting with FBI informant Christopher Steele shows the Hillary Clinton campaign-funded British intelligence operative admitted that his research was political and facing an Election Day deadline.

And that confession occurred 10 days before the FBI used Steele’s now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s ties to Russia.”

David Bossie, head of Citizens United and an informal Trump adviser, said the documents suggest there was an illegal effort to “frame” the future president with bogus Russia collusion allegations. “This new information proves why the attorney general must conduct a thorough investigation of the investigators,” he said.

Sources tell me there also are handwritten notes from the meeting, with information about Steele’s political ties, that have not been given to Congress. “There’s a connection to Hillary Clinton in the notes,” said one source who has seen them.”

This is why it is imperative that the AG’s Office continues to look into the spying that went on back in 2016 into the Trump campaign. This doesn’t look very by the book Comey. Who knows what else will come out. But we need to get it quick as it appears the FBI is covering their tracks.
