Federal Bureau of Investigation makes stunning admission about Trump 'dossier'

Russian involvement in US elections

This directly negates previous U.S. intelligence community assessments, which asserted that the campaign ordered by the Russian president was directed at undermining the public image of the former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, while promoting a positive image of the Republican candidate Donald Trump.

Trump called the report "bogus" and a "pile of garbage".

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

Trump commented on the dossier after former Congressman Jason Chaffetz dismissed the document as "bogus" in an interview on Fox & Friends, pointing to reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation refused to reveal who funded the opposition research document. "If that happens, have you gone, well, way, way beyond anything of reason and somebody should be prosecuted for that".

"The Russiagate story concocted by Hillary Clinton and the DNC, who coincidentally funded Fusion GPS (the firm behind the "Trump dossier" that the entire Russia election meddling is based upon), is unraveling at record speed", commented those at the Zerohedge blog.

Chaffetz additionally said that the dossier was subsidized with "evil ties", going ahead to state "maybe even with the Clinton crusade". Mueller may not actually be any close to finding any wrongdoing in the White House--we don't know--and Republicans may simply want to ratchet up attacks to polarize, to undermine any potential future indictments or findings by Mueller... Fusion GPS was subsequently hired by the Clinton campaign to continue its opposition research into Trump.

"This was explore begun by a Republican giver amid the Republican essential, and when Trump got the designation for the Republican Party, the general population doing it went to my battle attorney", Clinton said on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah". "He's an accomplished attorney, he realizes what the law is, he recognizes what restriction look into is".

On Jan. 11, BuzzFeed News obtained and published a dossier compiled by retired British intelligence officer Christopher Steele during the 2016 presidential race. "It's fraud stuff. It didn't occur". Because of this, many on the right have questioned its veracity, suggesting that the dossier was part of a politically motivated plan to discredit Trump.

In tweets over the Christmas holiday, Trump went after FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who recently announced his retirement. "The casualty here is the President".
