Senator Grassley is unamused by your piss files.
Honestly, every single aspect of everything that happened surrounding #Pissgate needs to be the subject of a serious congressional inquiry.
This was such a monumental event in the history of madness.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has opened an inquiry into allegations the FBI worked with the British spy who authored a controversial opposition research dossier on President Trump during the 2016 election.
In a Monday letter to FBI Director James Comey, Grassley asked for records pertaining to any agreements the agency may have had with Christopher Steele. The MI6 agent wrote an explosive memo on behalf of Trump’s political enemies alleging that the Russians had compromising information on the president.
Comey briefed Trump on the existence of the memo in a private meeting in January.
Shortly after, several news organizations published the unverified allegations, which the White House denied.
He wasn’t the White House at the time, Hill. He was President elect. Meaning Trump Tower denied it.
smdh fake news.
In late February, The Washington Post reported that the FBI reached an agreement with Steele whereby the British spy would continue his investigation on behalf of the bureau.
“While Trump has derided the dossier as ‘fake news’ compiled by his political opponents, the FBI’s arrangement with Steele shows that the bureau considered him credible and found his information, while unproved, to be worthy of further investigation,” the Post reported at the time.
Yeah see, WaPo is unhinged.
They printed this from sources to try and be like “oh this piss thing must be real or else FBI wouldn’t take it serious,” and the response is “what the hell is going on with the FBI – they need to be investigated.”
There was no level on which the piss files were going to be taken seriously, and anything associated with it was always going to backfire. Not sure how that wasn’t obvious to these people.
Honestly, they would have gotten more traction with claims Trump is an insectoid from another dimension.
At least people would have paused to consider that one.
Grassley is pushing back and demanding the FBI provide information pertaining to its use of the British spy, whose salacious allegations have infuriated Trump and his allies.
“The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for President in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBI’s independence from politics, as well as the Obama administration’s use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends,” Grassley wrote.
This could be big.
I think this could be big.
All of this stuff against Trump needs to be thrown back at them. Exactly like this.
