It seems that the Department of Justice that Trump is so confident in being on his side has been up to a little somethin’ somethin’ while Donald was recently out to play in London — and Mr. President is not going to like what they came up with.
Politico has reported today that dossier author Christopher Steele, the very same man who put together the evidence that kick-started former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, was grilled by the DOJ for a staggering 16 hours while Donald was away in London. And ultimately, Trump’s DOJ determined that the dossier is, in fact, credible.
Fusion GPS contracted Steele to gather opposition research on Trump during the 2016 presidential election. It was originally funded by a conservative activist only to later be turned over to to the Democratic National Committee as well as the FBI.
Politico’s report read:
“The extensive, two-day interview took place in London while Trump was in Britain for a state visit, the sources said and delved into Steele’s extensive work on Russian interference efforts globally, his intelligence-collection methods and his findings about Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who the FBI ultimately surveilled. The FBI’s decision to seek a surveillance warrant against Page — a warrant they applied for and obtained after Page had already left the campaign — is the chief focus of the probe by Horowitz.
The interview was contentious at first, the sources added, but investigators ultimately found Steele’s testimony credible and even surprising. The takeaway has irked some U.S. officials interviewed as part of the probe — they argue that it shouldn’t have taken a foreign national to convince the inspector general that the FBI acted properly in 2016. Steele’s American lawyer was present for the conversation.”
Things are beginning to heat up for the Trumpster in every direction. While we’re certain that a Twitter tantrum will soon ensue, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Donald is running out of time. His coverup did not work.
