You Democrats make Nixon look like a piker.
must suck for you guys.

You all thought the endless attacks on the "dossier" would pay off and discredit FBI/Mueller investigations.

but instead it has just exposed the right wing as obstructing and trying to smear sources. Between Fusion and georgie boy you guys are in quite the pickle. Who will you blame now? How will you pretend Team Trump was not fully aware and fully forewarned?

the investigators have 3 to 4 sources for the investigation at least. Those sources mean the dossier is of limited importance ref initiating the investigation. the AUSSIES confirm THEY alerted US security forces. Fusion goes into detail crushing the myth of "buying dirt"...



Your entire attack on the "source" which was intended to taint the outcome has failed. So whats next? Are you going to revisit "Hillary email", "benghazi" , "Uranium", "tarmac","birtherism', or will you make up something completely new.
My guess is you guys go full bore attacking the grand Jury, it is pretty clear the Trump/Putin/FOX propaganda machine is testing the water on that one. Playing the race card is risking but what choices do you guys have left?

I don't see any signed declaration by Simpson or a direct quote from the document, maybe you can supply them but I doubt it. Regardless, if this was a problem it should be in the senate transcript, why do we need to dig for information that is already available.

How can that be? Fusion was hired by the Clinton DNC exactly to find out or make up information damaging to Trump. How can they be surprised that Steele did what they told him to?

If the dossier was not used, why is the FBI, and DOJ refusing to comply with subpoenas about the dossier?

If it wasn't used, why doesn't the DOJ just say that to congress?

The deadline is tomorrow, the FBI, and DOJ are either going to come clean about the dossier, or face contempt charges.

Do you mean the DOJ and FBI headed by Trump appointees


Glenn Simpson the founder of GPS testified in Congress back in November.

Yes it is an opinion piece but hopefully the first step to seeing the actual transcripts of the testimony.

Yes Fusion was hired by the DNC also by the RNC, they didn't have to make anything up on Trump.
What they found was he had dealings in countries that no legitimate person would do business. Interesting in yesterdays NYTimes editorial by Simpson that the dossier pointed to all the connections by the Trump empire with Deutsche Bank. Remember Trump asking Mueller not to look at his banks, it is unfortunate like Simpson indicated that congress is more interested in his bank accounts than Trumps.

Good article regarding their 17 hours of testimony,

We don’t believe the Steele dossier was the trigger for the F.B.I.’s investigation into Russian meddling. As we told the Senate Judiciary Committee in August, our sources said the dossier was taken so seriously because it corroborated reports the bureau had received from other sources, including one inside the Trump camp.
The intelligence committees have known for months that credible allegations of collusion between the Trump camp and Russia were pouring in from independent sources during the campaign. Yet lawmakers in the thrall of the president continue to wage a cynical campaign to portray us as the unwitting victims of Kremlin disinformation.

oh please if that was the case they could redact, stop pretending please, and let's be honest here.

It is likely the GOP don't want the transcripts released because they look bad for trump. And considering they are leaking pro trump excerpts it is very likely this is the case.
