Don’t look now, but a second memo has been released on the FBI’s FISA collusion.
This time it’s coming from the Senate side. Sen. Chuck Grassley has been hot on the trail of the FBI’s collusion with the Hillary campaign to derail Trump.
The memo released by Grassley’s Judiciary Committee argues that Chris Steele, the DNC-paid author of the dossier, was being fed with anti-Trump Russia collusion speculation directly from Hillary’s campaign staffers.
Further, the memo alleges Steele deliberately misled the FBI in the course of serving as a ‘witness’.
So, in essence, the Hillary campaign’s opposition research was presented as fact to the FISA court to justify wiretapping of Trump’s campaign.
Here’s more from BizPacReview…
Christopher Steele isn’t getting off the hook so easily.
According a memo released by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday, Steele, the former British MI6 agent who compiled the Trump dossier commissioned by Fusion GPS, was fed allegations from Clinton associates during his research on President Trump, Fox News reports.
The Monday memo is an unclassified, redacted version of a criminal referral filed on Jan. 4 by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) that suggests Steele lied to the FBI about his contacts or that the FBI misrepresented Steele’s statements.
Grassley and Graham wrote to the Justice Department in January, requesting an investigation of Steele. The Senators now ask the FBI for an emergency review of their criminal referral so that it can be made public with limited redactions.
In the memo, the lawmakers state “there is substantial evidence suggesting that Mr. Steele materially misled the FBI about a key aspect of his dossier efforts, one which bears on his credibility.”
