    "FBI's spreadsheet puts a stake through the heart of Steele's dossier

    Multiple sources familiar with the FBI spreadsheet tell me the vast majority of Steele’s claims were deemed to be wrong, or could not be corroborated even with the most awesome tools available to the U.S. intelligence community. One source estimated the spreadsheet found upward of 90 percent of the dossier’s claims to be either wrong, nonverifiable or open-source intelligence found with a Google search.

    In other words, it was mostly useless.

    “The spreadsheet was a sea of blanks, meaning most claims couldn’t be corroborated, and those things that were found in classified intelligence suggested Steele’s intelligence was partly or totally inaccurate on several claims,” one source told me.

    The FBI declined comment when asked about the spreadsheet.

    The FBI’s final assessment was driven by many findings contained in classified footnotes at the bottom of the spreadsheet. But it was also informed by an agent’s interview, in early 2017, with a Russian that Steele claimed was one of his main providers of intelligence, according to my sources.

    The FBI came to suspect that the Russian misled Steele, either intentionally or through exaggeration, the sources said.

    The FBI lied to the FISA court FOUR times.

    There's a notion (exists here at GT, too) that if you repeat another's lies, then technically it is not your lies.

    FBI did that.

    The feces are about to hit the rotating ventilation device.

    But the media is ramping up now to drown out this whole story. When the indictments start to fly, CNN et. al. will be awash with more stories from the Democratic "women of color", more "racism", more "atrocities" at the border, and on and on. It's gonna be hot this week in the mid-west, so I'm sure we'll hear about climate change.

    The crimes committed under Obama's administration are without precedent. But most will never even know about it, because "Russian collusion" and "obstruction of justice" have been drilled into the head of the useful idiots while the real crimes by Democrats are covered up by a complicit media.

    ... and they should be held accountable, as should all of the leadership who signed off on every one of those applications. Jail time. Sedition is the crime here. Hanging is warranted.

    You can't get here from there!
    There is a distinction between a lie and a liar that some people fail to understand.

    Repeating a lie that you believe to be true does not make you a liar, but it remains a lie.

    "Details Emerge Of Mystery FBI Spreadsheet That Kept Track Of Steele Dossier


    CHUCK ROSS INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER
    July 17, 20192:30 PM ET

    • FBI investigators maintained a spreadsheet that kept track of individual allegations made in the infamous Steele dossier.
    • The spreadsheet reportedly noted many of the allegations were either inaccurate or unverified.
    • Former Rep. Trey Gowdy has previously alluded to the spreadsheet, saying it showed the FBI also used a longtime Hillary Clinton ally to corroborate some of the dossier’s claims.
    Former Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed in an interview that the FBI maintained a spreadsheet on which it kept track of the allegations made by former British spy Christopher Steele in his infamous dossier.

    According to Gowdy, the spreadsheet laid out every assertion made in Steele’s 17 memos, with any evidence uncovered to support or rule out each claim.

    Gowdy said the spreadsheet included links to news reports to corroborate some of Steele’s allegations. The spreadsheet also included a reference to Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime Hillary Clinton fixer who was involved in spreading a second dossier alleging various misdeeds by Donald Trump.

    The MSM will white wash it, but just like in the X files theme, "The Truth is Out There." And if you are the least little bit curious, you can find it on the net. Different paradigm than two decades ago. If the MSM refuses to behave like ethical journalists, then their relevance (and viewership) will continue to drop.
