Former FBI Director James Comey admitted that the Bureau did not verify allegations in the Steele dossier before it was cited as grounds for snooping on a former Trump adviser in 2016.
One of the greatest crimes in modern American history was not perpetrated by Al Capone, John Gotti, the Clinton Crime Family or the Bush Crime Family. No, those people are rank amateurs compared to what this man James Comey pulled off while serving as the head of the FBI.
James Comey oversaw the ‘investigation’ into the various felonies committed by Crooked HIllary Clinton, including but not limited to destroying 33,000 emails she was told to retain, her staff destroying mobile devices she was told to retain, wiping clean her the illegal email server she used as Secretary of State despite being ordered not to. And just for good measure her husband, Slick Willie Clinton, paid an unethical and illegal visit to the attorney general Loretta Lynch all while Hillary was under Comey’s investigation.
Yes, Hillary did all these things and more, and yet amazingly when James Comey was done investigating he let her off without so much as a parking ticket. Why? Because Comey and Hillary go back for decades and the whole thing was a setup. The Steele ‘Russian Dossier’ was financed by, guess who? Hillary and the Democrats. James Comey never investigated her, he ran interference for her.
Comey replied with ‘I don’t recall’ to the majority of questions
FROM THE NY POST: The admission came in closed-door testimony before congressional investigators that was made public Saturday evening.
The dossier contained memos alleging Russian influence over Trump and his advisers and helped authorities get permission from a special court to surveil former Trump adviser Carter Page.
The compilation of the Steele dossier was funded first by a conservative publication, then by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
The transcript from yesterday’s James Comey interview is out. It includes:
‘I don’t know’ – 166 times
‘I don’t remember’ – 71 times
‘I don’t recall’ – 8 times
Read the transcript for yourself. Does this sound like someone interested in telling the full story?

During his testimony Friday, Comey repeatedly professed ignorance regarding FBI investigations into Trump campaign associates in the weeks prior to the 2016 election.
Asked by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) what the FBI did to confirm the Steele dossier, Comey indicated that effort was still underway months after the warrant to surveil Page had already been granted and renewed. READ MORE
James Comey Admits Steele Dossier Unverified Months After FISA Warrant Granted
FROM BREITBART NEWS: The former FBI director said the anti-Trump dossier “was coming to us from a reliable source with a track record, and it’s an important thing when you’re seeking a PC warrant,” concerning Steele.
“But what I understand by verified is we then try to replicate the source information so that it becomes FBI investigation and our conclusions rather than a reliable source’s,” he told Republicans. “That’s what I understand it, the difference to be. And that work wasn’t completed by the time I left in May of 2017, to my knowledge.”
Comey now has confirmed what Republican lawmakers like Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), Rep. Mark Meadows(R-N.C.), and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) have warned about for months – that the FBI used an unverified dossier, paid for by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party as political opposition research, to justify spying on the duly nominated GOP candidate for president just weeks before Election Day.
The original FISA warrant application submitted in October 2016, along with the three 90-day renewal, were labeled “Verified application,” as reported by National Review’s Andrew C. McCarthy. “The FBI has reviewed this verified application for accuracy in accordance with its April 5, 2001 procedures, which include sending a copy of the draft to the appropriate field office(s),” the applications read.
Along with being unaware of the dossier’s veracity, Comey did not know that Bruce Ohr, the Justice Department’s fourth-highest ranking official before his demotion last year, was a go-between for collecting so-called intelligence from Steele after the FBI terminated its relationship with the agent for alleging leaking information to the media. Further, Solomon reports that Comey could not recall that Steele’s relationship with the bureau had even been terminated. READ MORE
