Documents: FBI Used Steele Dossier Despite Bias Red Flags

Documents: FBI Used Steele Dossier Despite Bias Red Flags

The FBI continued to use the dossier compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele to seek multiple Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants even after several red flags surfaced about its credibility and Steele’s biases against President Donald Trump, according to partially redacted documents concerning top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr.

The documents, first obtained by Judicial Watch, show the FBI had formally documented Steele’s bias, shortly after the November 2016 presidential election, reports Fox News.

The documents also show Ohr kept up his contacts with Steele for at least six months after the FBI fired the former spy, and showed Ohr knew Steele opposed Trump before the election.

According to the documents, which summarized the FBI’s interviews with Ohr, he knew by September 2016, a month before the first FISA application was submitted to surveil Trump’s campaign, that a person linked to the document “was passionate” about Trump not being elected.

“This had the effect of putting a senior DOJ official on notice that a witness/source had an extreme bias,” a source close to the matter told Fox News.

In addition, internal FBI text messages that had been previously obtained by Fox News show the FBI had battled with a senior Justice Department official who claimed concerns about possible bias.

The FISA records are redacted but do not appear to show the FBI’s documentation about Steele was shared with the court.

According to the FBI documents, Ohr kept up his contacts with Steele until special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed in May 2017 to investigate Russian interference in the election and the Trump campaign.

    THE LEFT BI IS DIRTY. THEY ARE NOW ON PAR WITH THE MEXICAN POLICE. THEY HAVE FAILED THE PEOPLE.
    OUR CHANCES ARE BETTER WITH TRUMP THAN ANY POLITICAL PAID OFF PARTY.

    ANTI TRUMP CAVUTO MENTIONED TRUMP A CHEAP SHOT THEN A GUEST CAME ON NAMED 3 PEOPLE RICHARDSON THE RAT, CLINTON AND TRUMP. THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS WILL BLAME TRUMP. MY SHOELACE BROKE IT IS TRUMP’S FAULT. WANNA PLAY DETECTIVE? GOOGLE LOUIS PEPE THE GUARD AT THE JAIL AFTER 911. HE WAS ESCORTING TWO AL QUEDA BACK TO THEIR CELL. TWO ARE NOT TO BE ESCORTED BY ONE GUARD. TWO ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE SAME CELL. THEY TURNED ON HIM STABBED HIM IN THE EYE 3″ INTO HIS BRAIN.

    WITH LOUIS’ BLOOD THEY PAINTED A CROSS ON HIS CHEST. BEFORE THIS INCIDENT THEY BOUGHT A HAIR BRUSH AT THE COMMISSARY AND SHARPENED THE HANDLE INTO A SPIKE. LOUIS SITS IN THE DARK FOREVER AND HAS SEIZURES. HE WAS SUPPOSED TO TAKE CARE OF HIS ELDERLY PARENTS.THE VIDEO TAPE DISAPPEARED.

HOW CAN YOU WATCH AND NOT SEE A GUY STRINGING HIMSELF UP? WHY NOT AN UNDERCOVER GUARD IN THE CELL WITH HIM? I NO LONGER WATCH FIX NEWS ON WEEKENDS.

    As all these documents come into light, the more horrendous our government appears.
    The deep state DOES exist.
    I pray they all will face justice before Trump leaves office.
    Once the bulk of the nation sees how corrupt the country is, maybe we will have more conservatives as leaders.
