See another thread.... I am too tired to explain what a phony, fake, and fraudulent media outlet THE DAILY CALLER is.

 

It now seems to be @jimc91's media outlet of choice now.

 

Sad.

Sessions: FBI’s Handling Of The Dossier ‘Will Be Investigated’

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Sunday that the Department of Justice is investigating whether the FBI submitted accurate information about the infamous Steele dossier in order to obtain a surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

 

“Are you, sir, investigating the fact that the FBI used the dossier to get a wiretap against Trump associates and they did not tell the FISA court that the Democrats and Hillary Clinton paid for the dossier?” Maria Bartiromo, the host of Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” asked Sessions.

“Let me tell you, every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate,” he replied.

 

“That will be investigated and looked at, and we are not going to participate as a Department of Justice in providing anything less than a proper disclosure to the court before they issue a FISA warrant. Other than that, I’m not going to talk about the details of it, but I tell you, we’re not going to let that happen.”

Sessions did not provide additional detail about the investigation, which has been urged by Republican lawmakers.

 

In Oct. 2016, the FBI and Justice Department submitted an application to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in order to obtain a spy warrant against Page, a Trump campaign volunteer who had left the Trump team a month earlier.

 

The dossier is said to have been a significant part of the application, even though the salacious document was and remains largely unverified.

 

Republican lawmakers have asserted that the law enforcement officials who submitted the application failed to note that the Clinton campaign and DNC funded the dossier. The application does note that the dossier was put together by a “U.S. person” with political motivations, but Republicans have argued that the application should have been more specific.

 

Republicans have also alleged that the author of the dossier, former British spy Christopher Steele, misled the FBI by failing to reveal that he met with reporters in Sept. 2016 to discuss his investigation of Trump.

 

One of those reporters, Yahoo! News’ Michael Isikoff, wrote a story based on Steele’s information. That Sept. 23, 2016, article, which included Steele’s allegations about Page, was also used by the FBI and DOJ to help justify the surveillance warrant. But the application failed to note that the Isikoff article came from the same source as the dossier.
