UDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO CONFIRMED THAT THE FBI OFFERED CHRISTOPHER STEELE $50,000 IF HE PROVES ANY OF THE CLAIMS IN THE TRUMP-RUSSIA DOSSIER.
“I believe, just from examining the public sources, that the FBI offered Christopher Steele $50,000 if he could corroborate the dossier. He either couldn’t, didn’t, wouldn’t, and they didn’t pay him the money,” Napolitano told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on “Varney & Co.”
Couple of days ago during the oversight hearing, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said that he’s not in a position to answer such question.
When Rep. Ron DeSantis asked if the FBI “sponsored” the making of the dossier, DeSantis asked, “Do you know the answer to the question?”
Rosenstein then said: “I believe I know the answer, but the Intelligence Committee is the appropriate committee…”
Judge Napolitano stated that the committee should have been more persuasive on Rosenstein so he would answer the question. “I would have grilled him and subpoenaed an answer out of him because the American public has the right to know,” he said.
“(T)he FBI reportedly relied on the dossier in a September application for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page,” The Daily Caller reported in April
“A Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court judge granted that warrant, meaning that the court agreed there was probable cause to believe that Page was working as an agent of the Russian government.”
During his interview for “Varney & Co.,” Judge Napolitano pointed out the questions that still don’t have an answer: “How did the FBI get (the dossier); what was the FBI doing with it; did the FBI corroborate it; were they involved with Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence agent who is reputed to have authored this thing?”
Things are not looking good for the FBI. Last week, the FBI director Andew McCabe told the public that he’s planning his retirement. It looks like he sensed that Trump’s coming after him, so he wants to runaway from the Bureau as soon as possible.
The President stated via Twitter:
“How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?”
And this is a good question, don’t you think? The traitors’ house of cards is going down when they least expected.
