Report: FBI Repeatedly Used Fake ‘Steele Dossier’ for Spy Warrants Despite Knowing It’s Bias


According to new information, the Obama FBI continued using the anti-Trump “Steele Dossier” as a basis to obtain warrants to spy on Donald Trump despite knowing the whole thing was a false attempt to smear Trump.

A new report finds that the FBI already had clear evidence that the so-called “Steele dossier” was filled with unverified, skewed, biased, and flat out false accusations against Trump but they kept using it to push applications to the FISA court to spy on Trump despite knowing that the whole thing was garbage.

Worse, Obama DOJ operative Bruce Ohr continued using Steele’s info even after the FBI thoroughly debunked the one-time British spy’s claims.

The partially redacted documents, first obtained by Judicial Watch, also revealed that top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr maintained contact with Steele for at least six months after Steele was fired by the FBI for unauthorized media contacts in November 2016. The records further confirmed that Ohr knew of Steele’s anti-Trump bias before the 2016 election.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday evening. “I know personally there’s a lot more out there.”

According to the documents, Ohr knew for a month that the dossier was false before the initial FISA application was made.

A source told Fox News that “this had the effect of putting a senior DOJ official on notice that a witness/source had an extreme bias.”

In other words, they knew the dossier was garbage, yet they still used it as the basis to obtain warrants to spy on Trump.

Talk about being deemed guilty despite being known innocent!

The Steele dossier was bought and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign though her contacts with Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of a Democrat opposition research group called Fusion GPS.
