FBI knew Clinton & DNC paid for dossier, they knew about Kremlin ties, early on


“Annex A” (which included dossier allegations), from the 2016 Russia election interference report, was released by Chuck Grassley today. It was declassified by the Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on June 11. Grassley wants Adam Schiff’s report declassified as well.

The FBI knew but failed to disclose in the key Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) on Russia that the dossier came from the Clinton campaign and was highly dubious, according to the report.

James Comey briefed the President on parts of it, the salacious parts, on January 7, 2017.

By the time the report was published in the ICA, the FBI knew Steele’s research was paid for by a client with political motives. They knew that a month before and they knew Steele was “desperate” that Trump not be elected.

Four days after Comey briefed Trump, the FBI learned that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid for Steele’s research.

When they cut ties with Steele in November 2016, they failed to mention that detail. They only said he was leaking to the press.

The FBI also knew that one of Steele’s main sources was linked to Russian intelligence.

Comey’s bureau also knew that Russian intelligence was aware as of July 2016 about Steele’s election research seemingly tied to the Kremlin and that too was kept secret.

Comey and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe fought to include the dossier in the assessment although the CIA fought to not include it.

The dossier was also critical in obtaining the warrant to spy on the Trump Campaign.

There is no wiggle room for the criminals, they were caught long ago. Barr knew this long ago, the evidence is in the DOJ, he is the DOJ.

Barr was thrown off balance by the honest Grenell acting for the nation instead of himself.

The problem is Barr, period. There is no shortage of evidence, in any way, to begin indictments.

Anyone thinking differently should try to explain why Barr has resisted evidence release, even for existing trials.

You are absolutely correct. Barr is as Deep State as they come. The Devil looks after his own. And Barr is in league with the whole damn corrupt bunch of this leftist cancerous traitorous festering scab. The FBI, CIA, NSA and the DoJ needs to be scrubbed and completely started over.
