Outrage: ‘Salacious and unverified’ DNC-funded Steele dossier used for FISA warrant against Trump campaign in 2016

Jan. 11, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to a report from Sara Carter that the DNC-funded Fusion GPS-Christopher Steele dossier was used to obtain FISA Court warrants against the Trump campaign in 2016:

“Reports that the DNC and Clinton campaign-funded Fusion GPS-Steele dossier was used by the FBI and the Justice Department to obtain FISA Court warrants to spy on the Trump campaign confirms our deepest concerns. The simple fact is that even today no one at the FBI or the Justice Department who was involved in this incident have testified that the document was ever verified in any way. Discredited former FBI Director James Comey testified under oath that the dossier was ‘salacious and unverified.’ Given Comey’s sworn testimony, it is clear that he or his subordinates lied to the FISA court about the veracity of the dossier and their requests. What’s more, this revelation demonstrates that the entire premise for the Mueller investigation was based on a lie, and everything that comes from it is fruit of the poisoned tree.

“Given this knowledge, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein must put an end to the Mueller Russia collusion farce, and investigate and prosecute the Fusion GPS originators of this document.”
