There was just one huge problem.
And the FBI may be sitting on a bombshell that could choose Trump’s fate.
Steele– an ex-British secret agent– was commissioned by the questionable Fusion GPS to create opposition research study on Trump.
The collusion story got steam in the so-called “mainstream” media when BuzzFeed released the Christopher Steele dossier.
The memo included spectacular claims about the Russians having jeopardizing info on Trump, as well as allegations of collusion in between Russian agents and Trump partners.
However big concerns still stay.
The media thought they lastly had the silver bullet to remove Trump.
John McCain even had an intermediary pass the memo along to FBI Director James Comey.
The memo was fake news.
Now it’s in the hands of special counsel Robert Mueller.
The investigation into the alleged ties between Trump and Russia has actually dragged on for one year.
Did the FBI use the memo as the basis for their investigation into Trump’s alleged ties to Russia?
And was Steele on the FBI’s payroll?
If the response to both of these questions is “yes”, then the examination is a fraud and needs to be closed down right away with Mueller providing a report announcing Trump’s innocence.
But the FBI is stonewalling efforts to get at the reality.
Senator Chuck Grassley– chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is attempting to acquire an answer to these questions.
Byron York wrote in The Washington Examiner:
” Senate private investigators have actually had issues getting the FBI to expose info about the Trump file. They’re not the only ones. When it comes to the file, outdoors groups filing Freedom of Information Act demands are running up against a stone wall.
But as Byron York explains, both of these letters were sent out after former Director Comey openly validated the FBI’s counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign’s supposed ties to Russia.
… The idea was that the records would clarify the fundamental questions relating to the dossier. Simply exactly what did the FBI do? Why? And– this is extremely important to Grassley– did the FBI ever utilize the “unproven and salacious” (the words of previous FBI Director James Comey) information in the file as a basis for looking for warrants to put Americans under surveillance?”
On March 8, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA ask for documents concerning the bureau’s contacts with Christopher Steele, the former British spy who dug for dirt in Russia on prospect Donald Trump in the months prior to the 2016 presidential election. Steele’s effort was commissioned by the oppo research company Fusion GPS, which at the time was being paid by still-unidentified Democrats who supported Hillary Clinton. Simply weeks before the election, the FBI apparently agreed to support Steele’s oppo project– an amazing action in the midst of a campaign which Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley stated raised “concerns about the FBI’s self-reliance from politics …
The FBI declares they cannot launch the details in reaction to a Freedom of Information Act request because it would force them to deny the presence or confirm of an investigation.
Is the FBI covering up info that would show Trump’s innocence?
Or is the FBI informing the truth about why they won’t release the details about their connections to Christopher Steele?

And– this is really essential to Grassley– did the FBI ever use the “unproven and salacious” (the words of former FBI Director James Comey) details in the file as a basis for using for warrants to put Americans under monitoring?”
