Did Obama DOJ Use Fake Dossier on Purpose?

The Justice Department under President Obama could have used the Steele dossier to gain surveillance powers over the Trump campaign, knowing full well that the contents of the dossier were unreliable. The Daily Caller reports:

Justice Department and FBI officials exchanged emails during the late stages of the 2016 presidential campaign discussing concerns within the intelligence community about the infamous Steele dossier, according to a new report.

The emails also show that top government officials were aware that Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier, was in contact with reporters regarding his investigation into President Donald Trump and his possible links to Russia.

The emails, first reported by The Hill, were exchanged in October 2016, before the FBI submitted its first of four applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to spy on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

The emails could lend further evidence to Republicans’ allegations that the FBI used information that it knew to be uncorroborated to obtain FISA warrants against Page. The documents could also raise the possibility that the FBI used circular reporting in the FISA applications. That’s because the bureau relied on a news article published by Yahoo on Sept. 23, 2016 in its FISA applications. The application presents the news article as separate from the dossier, even though Steele provided information to the author of the piece, Michael Isikoff.

If this conspiracy is true and exposed, it would mean that Hillary Clinton paid for a fake dossier, fed it to Obama’s DOJ all in a bid to have the Federal government spy on a Presidential candidate.

The Democratic Party should also be held responsible for all cost incurred during that 2 year fabricated Fiasco. Trump should also sue them for Defamation of character. All those involved should be taken up on treasonous charges for causing National division and forming a coup against our Government.

This entire WITCH HUNT was set up by Obama and all his Minions ! They knew going in that it was a Phony Document but pushed it thru anyway ! Just goes to show you how far these CRIMINALS would go to get away with SEDITION and TREASON ! The ENTIRE Obama Administration and all his appointees should be ARRESTED, TRIED, AND EITHER IMPRISONED OR EXECUTED !

Oh, like this is news! We have known this ever since the fake investigation began to use up tax payer money, make the Deep State rich, and try, once again, to frame our President in order to start impeachment proceedings so the Socialist can finally put the final nail in the coffin and take over America. NEWSFLASH DEEP STATE, not going to happen, not this time, not ever! Americans are happy with our President, he is doing a magnificent job, and the most important thing of all, we trust this man!

We already know how corrupt the DOJ is! Also, the FBI, AG, etc. They’ve been doing everything they can to get rid of President Trump with false accusations, phony investigations, you name it!!! They should all be executed for treason, starting with Obama, then the Clinton crime family!!! The sooner the better.

Having read all of the comments so far, I agree with all of the commenters that what is happening to Trump with regard to the investigation is disgusting. Having said that, I find it more disgusting what some commenters have said with regard to punishing the wrongdoers.

As everybody should know, all crimes in the United States are statutory. This means that those who commit crimes are subject to the sentence spelled out in the statute. Stating that people should be executed, for example, is unreasonable, unless the charge is treason. In Federal Law, only treason is subject to execution. Therefore, unless you are alleging treason, execution is not appropriate. To call for it is out of order and makes one look like a kook.

I believe the BIG elephant in the room is the “strong” (almost certain) assumption that the President was WELL AWARE of what was going on. After all, it was HIS DOJ that was involved in all this Hanky Panky and I can’t believe he was not READ into the FOUL DEED !!!

Personally, I think the Obama administration worked with the Hillary campaign to commission the fake dossier. I think they saw the popularity of Candidate Trump and got a little worried that people were actually going to vote for him over her. And they hatched this plan to be two fold. First to try and stop him from getting elected, and second if he did get elected, to discredit his election and his administration.

Obama is still causing problems for Trump. He wants to number one he wants to do away with white people and number 2 he wants to be President again so he can complete his program being the leader of a OWO. Tell Putin I can not do much more now but I will in my next term. That says it all in one sentence. Collusion at it’s highest level and never even got noted except on fox news.
