    Default NYT is finally woke? Dossier unfounded?

    Is the NYT finally woke? Guess this was just a giant game of 'telephone'.
    And, Mullet began his witch hunt AFTER knowing this dossier thing was garbage.
    What a waste of time and money!!!

    NYT: "Ha ha, funny story, you'll never believe it. That dossier we spent years defending as legitimate and a worthy basis for FISA wiretaps on citizens is so unfounded it might actually be Russian disinformation, just like the collusion skeptics warned." https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/19/u...er-report.html Ö

    I love it; and I want some scrutiny on who the corrupt criminals were on Mueller's team that were illegally leaking investigatory information to the NYT.

    Mueller Report Likely to Renew Scrutiny of Steele Dossier
    Page 173 V I: Ultimately, the investigation did not establish that the Campaign coordinated or conspired with the Russian government in its election-interference activities.

    I said so right away. Russian collusion was the stupidest meme ever devised
    I'll have to read the article -NYTimes sees the light?

    How the dossier ended up loaded with dubious or exaggerated details remains uncertain, but the document may be the result of a high-stakes game of telephone, in which rumors and hearsay were passed from source to source.
    makes sense "circular sourcing" is what the FISA warrants used to justify multi-sourcing

    From the article:

    Now the dossier ó financed by Hillary Clintonís campaign and the Democratic National Committee, and compiled by the former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele ó is likely to face new, possibly harsh scrutiny from multiple inquiries.

    Republicans in Congress have vowed to investigate. The Justice Departmentís inspector general is considering whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation improperly relied on the dossier in applying to the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for a warrant to eavesdrop on Carter Page, a Trump adviser. The inspector general wants to know what the F.B.I. learned about Mr. Steeleís sources and whether it disclosed any doubts about their veracity to the court.

    And Attorney General William Barr has said he will review the F.B.I.ís conduct in the Russia investigation. His remark that there was ďspyingĒ on the Trump campaign has already encouraged Republican accusations of misconduct.

    Interviews with people familiar with Mr. Steeleís work on the dossier and the F.B.I.ís scramble to vet its claims suggest that misgivings about its reliability arose not long after the document became public ó and a preoccupation of Trump opponents ó in early 2017. Mr. Steele has made clear to associates that he always considered the dossier to be raw intelligence ó not established facts, but a starting point for further investigation.

    *****

    Another possibility ó one that Mr. Steele has not ruled out ó could be Russian disinformation. That would mean that in addition to carrying out an effective attack on the Clinton campaign, Russian spymasters hedged their bets and placed a few land mines under Mr. Trumpís presidency as well.

    Oleg D. Kalugin, a former K.G.B. general who now lives outside Washington, saw that as plausible. ďRussia has huge experience in spreading false information,Ē he said.

    You poor little buttmonkey.

    There was no witchhunt.
    It's not been proven to be 'garbage', nor does your link state that.
    The predicate for the investigation is actually in the Mueller Report.

    And, it speaks volumes to have dossier-signer Rosenweasel standing there with Barr, in effect lending his affirmation. (nice visual there Rod)
    Me thinks Rosenweasel has obviously been humming, if not fully singing.
    He can either save his skin a little or save it a lot......I believe he's opted for "a lot". We'll see.

    Of course it does; but when your idol Obama was President, you cried like a little low IQ bitch about it. Your not merely repugnant and stupid, but a massive hypocrite on steroids.
