James Comey doubled down on the anti-Trump dossier and it could come back to bite him
Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey testified in front of the House Oversight committee.
He doubled down on one claim about the fake anti-Trump dossier.
And it could land him in hot water.
The Christopher Steele dossier was used as a basis for spying on the Trump campaign.
The dossier was chock full of fabrications and outright lies.
In 2016 Democrats paid Fusion GPS for the dossier to try and dig up dirt on Trump. Then it fell in the lap of FBI Director James Comey.
Comey was the one who signed off on using the dossier as justification for spying.
But he claims that Republicans first paid for it.
That is a lie.
The Washington Times reports:
The timeline that fired FBI Director James B. Comey provided to lawmakers on who funded the anti-Trump dossier conflicts with court filings and congressional testimony.
Mr. Comey, in House testimony for which a transcript was released Tuesday, maintained that Republicans first financed the dossier, then the Democrats.
But testimony by the dossier writer, ex-spy Christopher Steele, and others show the dossier didn’t exist until Fusion GPS engaged Mr. Steele in May-June 2016. By that time, a Republican funding opposition research with Fusion had bowed out two months earlier.
Fusion went to the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee to win funding to hire Mr. Steele, who in June wrote dossier memos accusing Mr. Trump of colluding with Moscow.
Comey claims to not care who paid for the dossier.
But critics believe Comey and top brass at the FBI tried to frame Donald Trump for so-called collusion with Russia.
And he used a made up document paid for by Trump’s political opponents to spy on the campaign.
The Mueller witch hunt has dragged on and is yet to produce any evidence of so-called “collusion.”
It is nothing more than a political hit job designed to mire the Trump administration in a media-fueled scandal to block him from implementing America First policies.
