Christopher Steele Fears Deposition Will Put Dossier Sources At Risk

The Grassley-Graham memo goes on to say "it's troubling enough that the Clinton campaign funded Mr. Steele's work, but [worse] that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele's allegations".

The GOP memo showed what many suspected all along - the Federal Bureau of Investigation used Clinton campaign opposition research (the infamous "Steele dossier" compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele) to obtain a warrant (through a FISA court) to spy on a member of Trump's campaign team. Months later, then FBI Director James Comey admitted it was completely unverified.

Last November, a British court ruled Steele should undergo lengthy pre-trial questioning but on Monday his lawyers sought to have that order quashed.

The FBI included in its initial FISA warrant application in October 2016 a September 2016 Yahoo News article that contained information that seemingly corroborated the dossier. Priestap approved the background documents used in FISA warrant preparation, gave approval for the use of the Steele dossier and was also directly involved in the surveillance and investigation of Michael Flynn.

"Chris had a friend at the State Department and he offered us that reporting free so that we could also benefit from it".

The Justice Department watchdog briefed a bipartisan group of lawmakers Tuesday on its investigation into the FBI's actions during the 2016 election, including its probe into Hillary Clinton's emails. "I think that the majority of Americans will ultimately make a determination that using political dirt by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on the opposing campaign is a place that we won't go", he added.

Constitutional law expert and former Reagan administration official Mark Levin said Americans have been subjected to a "massive propaganda campaign" to protect Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama.

Nunes (R-Calif.) said the committee's ranking Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff, is spreading a "false" narrative about him and Republicans coordinating with the White House on the memo. Heading the cabal was Comey, who made the call to exonerate Hillary of criminal charges for imperiling national security secrets, even before his own FBI investigation was concluded.

Earlier in the day, Nunes claimed there have been almost "100 leaks" to the media by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee related to the Russian Federation investigation. Clinton hired Fusion, which hired Steele.

You should be scared.
