BREAKING: Explosive Russian Dossier Deemed Reliable Enough For FBI To Obtain FISA Warrant

Remember that explosive Russian dossier from a few months that revealed Donald Trump’s collusion with Moscow and affinity for pee pee parties? At the time, the document (supposedly written by a British spy) was considered too questionable to be believed. But now, it appears that at the dossier may be more legitimate than originally thought.

CNN reported on Tuesday that the FBI deemed the Russian dossier reliable enough to obtain a FISA warrant against Trump aide, Carter Page. Sources added that FBI Director James Comey had also used the document “to bolster [the FBI’s] investigation” during his testimony to Congress.

According to CNN, “the dossier alleges that Page met senior Russian officials as an emissary of the Trump campaign, and discussed quid-pro-quo deals relating to sanctions, business opportunities and Russia’s interference in the election.”

As CNN points out, the fact that the FBI used the dossier to obtain a FISA warrant means that they believe at least parts of it are true. “Officials familiar with the process say even if the application to monitor Page included information from the dossier, it would only be after the FBI had corroborated the information through its own investigation,” noted the network.
