OOPS!

The company that created a discredited dossier for President Trump’s campaign rivals and was later used by the FBI in its probe of possible links between Trump and Russia has its own Kremlin connection, according to a powerful U.S. Senator.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to launch an investigation into Washington-based Fusion GPS, which produced the 35-page Trump dossier with help from ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. Grassley wants to know why the FBI might seek evidence tying Trump to Russia from a firm whose own hands may not be clean.

Here we go Fox or should we say Trump TV? What do you do when you're desperate to deflect and deny serious allegations? Muddy the waters with an 8 year old conspiracy theory? Counter attack provable facts? Feed propaganda to the rubes through a friendly TV personality? Launch fake news web sites? Or all of the above?

Here's what we know. Christopher Steele worked with the FBI to expose corruption in FIFA. He was well respected in the FBI.

After the dossier was released three Russian intelligence officials were "black bagged" and dragged off. Does anyone know what happened to them? The head of the top Russian cybersecurity firm was also removed. What happened to him?

In yet an amazingly well timed heart attack Oleg Erainkin was found dead in his car. How nice of him to die just after he helped Christopher Steele compile the dossier and it was out in public.

Read the Huffington Post article "Ex-KGB Chief Thought Dead As Source Of Trump Blackmail Dossier Leak.

So who do we believe? Republican mouth pieces with an agenda and who are partisan over country, or do we look for the facts?

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth will come out no matter how much Trump and the Republicans try to deflect and muddy the waters.

The dossier wasn't discredited and nothing Fox says is true. Try harder.

Tucker Carlson is an idiot. He has zero credibility. And if Podesta were in trouble, why do numerous sources say that Trump is going absolutely crazy worrying after hearing about this indictment coming? Even if Tony Podesta got indicted for ties to Manafort and Ukraine, it doesn't mean Trump and his team aren't also getting indicted. Mueller already told Manafort he can expect to be indicted. We know Don Jr, Jared, Ivanka, and the Mercers are likely going to face indictments.

As the first Trump-Russia indictments are handed down the right-wing fake news machine is in a full frenzy now.
Podesta!
Hillary, Uranium One!
Don't look at Trump-Russia, look at these bright shiny objects over here!

"Discredited dossier"? Discredited by whom, exactly? Trump? Okay, so we know that the dossier was compiled under questionable circumstances. However, this is does negate Trump's unusual Russian connection. It also certainly doesn't mean Hillary was a saint in her dealings with Russia either. Anyone who understands anything about the Russians knows that they play both sides. They play both the left and right - whatever serves their interests.

So Hillary worked with a company to get dirt on Trump, only to let the Russians steal her emails and lose the election?

The logic that Hillary was working with Russia to lose makes absolutely no sense, even by Trump supporter standards.

Grassley has not given out the testimony of Fusion GPS from his committee. What is he hiding? Why does it seem the GOP is no longer interested in stopping the Russians from attacking our country? From this type of nonsense to POTUS not putting sanctions imposed by a bill he signed, they are hiding all sorts of stuff and must be dirty.
