An infamous, and proven-false dossier about President Trump has been circulated during the past years. Many questions have been raised about its origin. In such a historic, heated Presidental election, people want to know who actually commissioned the report?
Most troubling, now we’re learning that Obama’s FBI may have paid for the dossier. Congress has looked into this question but those who know are stonewalling.
Now, the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor, is issuing subpoenas and demanding answers!
As Byron York in the Washington Examiner explains:
In the most significant escalation yet in the wrangling between Congress and the FBI over the Trump dossier, the House Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed the bureau and the Justice Department for documents relating to the dossier, the FBI’s relationship with dossier author Christopher Steele, and the bureau’s possible role in supporting what began as an opposition research project against candidate Donald Trump in the final months of last year’s presidential campaign.
The subpoenas are an indication of growing frustration inside the committee over the FBI and Justice Department’s lack of cooperation in the Trump-Russia investigation.
Gowdy didn’t want to take this step, but Democrats have forced his hand. He’s furious:
“We got nothing,” said committee member Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who is taking a leading role in the Russia investigation. “The witnesses have not been produced and the documents have not been produced.”
In a telephone interview Tuesday, Gowdy said the FBI has said it needed more time to comply, and also that complying might interfere with the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller. Whatever the reason, the documents haven’t been produced.
“A subpoena is a tool of last resort in Congress,” Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor, said.
There is so much to learn about this false dossier. But it’s a major scandal if the FBI paid taxpayer dollar to smear a presidential candidate. The FBI has no business actively trying to change the outcome of a Presidential election.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson explained the situation recently:
This is becoming very serious. Thankfully, Trey Gowdy is leading the charge!
