Trey Gowdy: FBI concealed Clinton role in Steele dossier

The House’s top investigator on Sunday said the FBI failed to notify a surveillance court that it was relying on material backed by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign when it asked to snoop on a former adviser to the Trump campaign.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, also said judges wouldn’t have authorized and repeatedly renewed a warrant to spy on the former campaign aide, Carter Page, if it hadn’t been for the material in that very dossier, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.

The revelations shouldn’t upend investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, the congressman said, but he thinks the FBI erred by failing to disclose their sources’ anti-Trump agenda in a footnote on their evidence.

“They could have easily said it was the DNC and Hillary Clinton. That would have been really easy,” Mr. Gowdy told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “It took longer to explain it the way they did than if they just came right out and said, ‘Hillary Clinton for America and DNC paid for it.’ But they didn’t do that.”

    The FBI is a corrupt cesspool. Mueller and Comey are card carrying members of the FBI’s “Secret Society” aka The Dirty Cop Club. The leftist FBI Secret Society tried to overthrow the freely elected Government Of The United States. That was a Treasonous act by the SS and their subversive operatives should be arrested for this. The FBI serves the Deep State Democrats, not Americans……….. Remember these things? The FBI murdered family members at Ruby Ridge, murdered 80 plus men. women and children at Waco, murdered Lavoy Finnicum, persecuted the Bundy’s and threatened to kill them too. The FBI should be held accountable for it’s past and present crimes and this time, it’s TREASON.

    When Trey Gowdy speaks, people (that includes democrat politicians) should listen. Because what Gowdy just said directly contradicts with what Adam Schiff (D-CA), the weasel, also called the ‘Ranking Member on the House Intelligent Committee’, told talk show hosts on CNN and ABC yesterday during the Sunday circus. Schiff said, at the bottom of the FISA application a note was made that the information collected was, in part, provided from political sources. Now, both cannot be telling the truth. Somebody is flat-out lying. If I was a betting man, I’d bet 100-to-1 that Schiff’s nose grew into Pinocchio dimensions over last night.

      I would take your bet since since it’s easy to prove who is lying here.
