Sens. Johnson, Grassley demand FBI explain why it failed to corroborate bogus Steele dossier

The two U.S. senators most associated with dogged attempts to get answers to the Obama-era ‘Russian collusion’ hoax and ‘Spygate’ scandal are also both Republicans: Sens. Charles Grassley (above, left) of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.

They are also the two most stonewalled U.S. senators on Capitol Hill.

For nearly four years the, and a few Republicans in the House, have pursued all of the facts surrounding the greatest political scandal in the history of our country.

They know there’s more because every time they uncover a new detail, like a spider web questions lead in many new directions.

But one thing they’re convinced of: Even the Trump FBI isn’t telling the whole truth about that agency’s role in the collusion and Spygate scandals.

And as election day nears and there are some rumors that Republicans could lose control of the Senate (thus killing any further effort to learn the truth), they are demanding answers anew from FBI Director Christopher Wray, who has been a monumental disappointment for the Trump administration and the pursuit of truth.

Particularly, they want more answers about the bogus ‘dossier’ that was crafted by former British spy Christopher Steele, an info-warfare operation that was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

The Washington Examiner reports on the latest information push:

Two top Senate Republicans leading a joint inquiry into the Trump-Russia investigation called on the leaders of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the FBI to declassify further information related to an FBI spreadsheet that shows the lack of corroboration for the biggest allegations in British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s dossier.

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and FBI Director Christopher Wray this week calling for an unredacted version of the FBI spreadsheet to be released along with the names and positions of everyone who worked on it and the dates for when it was created, edited, and finalized, pushing for further answers related to the FBI’s unsuccessful efforts to verify the former MI6 agent’s election reporting that was used to justify bureau surveillance of a former member of the Trump campaign.

“Based on this spreadsheet and other information, the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General determined in its December 2019 report that the FBI concluded, among other things, that although consistent with known efforts by Russia to interfere in the 2016 U.S. elections, much of the material in the Steele election reports, including allegations about Donald Trump and members of the Trump campaign relied upon in the Carter Page FISA applications, could not be corroborated; that certain allegations were inaccurate or inconsistent with information gathered by the Crossfire Hurricane team; and that the limited information that was corroborated related to time, location, and title information, much of which was publicly available,” Johnson and Grassley wrote.pdf).

“This spreadsheet clearly shows that the FBI failed to corroborate key information in the discredited, DNC-funded, Steele dossier yet continued to use it to justify surveillance against Carter Page,” they added.

Hopefully, time isn’t running out on a GOP-controlled Senate, mostly because Republicans need to retain it to allow President Trump to continue nominating (and the Senate confirming) constitutionalist judges to the federal bench.

But also because have got to get to the bottom of the Obama-sanctioned operation to undermine and depose a duly elected president.

What’s more, people have to be jailed for what they did — or Democrats and their deep state allies will just do it again and again until they are successful.
