Embattled FBI admits it can’t verify dossier claims of Russia, Trump campaign collusion

The FBI is declining to repudiate the Russia dossier on which it partially relied to start an investigation into the Trump campaign, but it concedes the document’s major core charges of election collusion remain unsubstantiated.

Sources familiar with House and Senate investigations say this is the FBI’s dossier talking point 17 months after agents were first briefed in July 2016 as Donald Trump battled Hillary Clinton for the White House.

The most recent FBI witness was Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who spent nearly eight hours last week in a closed session before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

    Everyone on the left, is treating the dossier with the same sense of desperation as a guy who plans to pay off 3 maxed out credit cards and a car loan with their winnings of LottoMax. All they have to do is win.

    The left has hung all their plans on a fake document payed for by the left and has nothing else. The only reason the left is hanging on so desperately is it is all they have to try and reclaim some credibility. If Trump was any other president and cowed by the media and the swamp this would have been over in May with an new president. Trump’s greatest accomplishment when this time is looked back on will be his stopping the progressive coup and exposing these conspirators.
