Trump slams Federal Bureau of Investigation and Clinton for dossier claims

The Trump administration and GOP lawmakers have criticized the veracity of the Steele dossier, asserting that it was compiled on behalf of the Clinton campaign and used by the FBI to investigate the Trump campaign.

The dossier was a collection of unverified claims about alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

And if the dossier is "bogus" and there are questions about how it was funded, that raises questions on using what it contained as evidence needed for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to obtain a Foreign intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant needed to eavesdrop on the president's team.

"How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin' James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife's campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation", Trump wrote from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.

The president called the dossier a "crooked Hillary pile of garbage".

"Dossier is bogus, '" Trump tweeted out.

This was the "dossier" that some members of Congress suggest was used as "evidence" by the Obama administration before a FISA court in order to obtain permission to spy on the Trump campaign in search of evidence that would be used to support Hillary Clinton's eventual unsuccessful campaign. Its murky origins have been revealed to include a Republican donor who hired political intelligence firm Fusion GPS.

Allowed Kulbhushan Jadhav's meeting with wife, mother on 'humanitarian grounds'
After Jadhav was sentenced to death on charges of espionage and terrorism by Pakistan, India had moved the ICJ in May for justice. He affirmed that Kulbhushan was not given consular access as the Indian official was barred to speak anything.

The dossier was compiled by retired British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

It also was the DOJ's Bruce Ohr whose wife, Nellie, was paid by Fusion GPS during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Two sources close to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asserted that she had been unaware of Steele's dossier until January 2017 and that she was disappointed that the document's allegations against Trump were not published before the 2016 election.

The investigation into Russia's meddling in our elections previous year was also what prompted the investigation to include members of Trump's inner circle.

The Russia probe has dogged Mr. Trump since before his election and has morphed into an investigation by Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.

"I think that there is probably some credibility to the content", Dearlove told the BBC.
