Mike Morell is the dude that Hillary Clinton would have made the director of the FBI if she had won, and he’s casting a lot of doubt on the dossier that supposedly shows the Russians have damaging info on Trump.
He also says there’s no evidence at all of a Trump-Russian collusion.
“I had two questions when I first read it. One was, How did Chris talk to these sources? I have subsequently learned that he used intermediaries.
“And then I asked myself, why did these guys provide this information, what was their motivation? And I subsequently learned that he paid them. That the intermediaries paid the sources and the intermediaries got the money from Chris. And that kind of worries me a little bit because if you’re paying somebody, particularly former FSB officers, they are going to ell you truth and innuendo and rumor, and they’re going to call you up and say, ‘hey, let’s have another meeting, I have more information for you,’ because they want to get paid some more.
“I think you’ve got to take all that into consideration when you consider the dossier.”
Another former CIA officer in the room pointed out that the CIA also pays its sources.
“But we know who the source us and we know how they got the information,” Morell responded.
That’s a pretty big conclusion from Morell, especially since he was a Hillary fan.
Earlier he called Trump an unwitting agent of the Russian federation:
But again, a guy who dislikes Trump so much is probably not gonna make up stuff that is going to help him…
