As usual, Donald Trump has the facts backwards and upside down. He managed to take a reporter’s interview and pull out of it that the infamous Michael Steele dossier was a dud, and Hillary Clinton should be investigated. Here is what really happened.
Trump tweeted that the “whole Russian Collusion thing was a HOAX:”
‘Russia Dossier reporter now doubts dopey Christopher Steele’s claims! “When you get into the details of the Steele Dossier, the specific allegations, we have not seen the evidence to support them. There’s good grounds to think that some of the more sensational allegations…..
‘….WILL NEVER BE PROVEN AND ARE LIKELY FALSE.” Thank you to Michael Isikoff, Yahoo, for honesty. What this means is that the FISA WARRANTS and the whole Russian Witch Hunt is a Fraud and a Hoax which should be ended immediately. Also, it was paid for by Crooked Hillary & DNC!’
‘Michael Isikoff was the first to report Dossier allegations and now seriously doubts the Dossier claims. The whole Russian Collusion thing was a HOAX, but who is going to restore the good name of so many people whose reputations have been destroyed?’
Michael Isikoff is the author of the book Russian Roulette and chief investigative correspondent at Yahoo. In a CNN interview he said that he had interviewed Steele. He also had multiple sources for the FISA application the FBI made for the Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page. The adviser then sent emails about what he found in Russia back to the campaign.
Isikoff said that the FBI renewed that FISA application three times, meaning that there was additional “truthful intelligence” for renewing it. Responding to a question, Isikoff said Christopher Steele was a serious man who came out of the very serious MI6 security organization in London.
