New reporting suggests FBI lied about dossier to FISA court and Lindsey Graham demands answers!

Last night John Solomon revealed that Christopher Steele met with a deputy assistant secretary in the State Department in October of 2016 and her memorandum of that meeting suggests that the FBI lied to the FISA court when getting the FISA warrant to surveil Carter Page. More on that in a moment.

Lindsey Graham has run with that information now, requesting that the DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Secretary Pompeo send his committee any information about those meetings, as well as requesting this now-former deputy assistant secretary be made available for a transcribed interview.

Here’s those letters posted by the Senate Judiciary Twitter account:



 
Now back to the Solomon story.

Solomon’s new article, which is mentioned in the above letters, revealed that then-Deputy Assistant Secretary of European and Eurasean affairs Kathleen Kavalec didn’t believe some of the details of this infamous dossier that Christopher Steele was working on for the Clinton Campaign and the DNC. Further it suggested that the FBI lied about Steele to the FISA court.

Let me start this way. The FBI told the FISA court that Steele’s reporting had been CORROBORATED and that he was a reliable witness:

It is important to note that the FBI swore on Oct. 21, 2016, to the FISA judges that Steele’s “reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings” and the FBI has determined him to be “reliable” and was “unaware of any derogatory information pertaining” to their informant, who simultaneously worked for Fusion GPS, the firm paid by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Clinton campaign to find Russian dirt on Trump.

This is a problem because even Kavalec, who met with Steele just 10 days before the FISA warrant was applied for, could easily tell that some of the information was blatantly false:

Newly unearthed memos show a high-ranking government official who met with Steele in October 2016 determined some of the Donald Trump dirt that Steele was simultaneously digging up for the FBI and for Hillary Clinton’s campaign was inaccurate, and likely leaked to the media.

The concerns were flagged in a typed memo and in handwritten notes taken by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec on Oct. 11, 2016.

Her observations were recorded exactly 10 days before the FBI used Steele and his infamous dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s contacts with Russia in search of a now debunked collusion theory.

Solomon continues:

In her typed summary, Kavalec wrote that Steele told her the Russians had constructed a “technical/human operation run out of Moscow targeting the election” that recruited emigres in the United States to “do hacking and recruiting.”

She quoted Steele as saying, “Payments to those recruited are made out of the Russian Consulate in Miami,” according to a copy of her summary memo obtained under open records litigation by the conservative group Citizens United. Kavalec bluntly debunked that assertion in a bracketed comment: “It is important to note that there is no Russian consulate in Miami.”

Kavalec, two days later and well before the FISA warrant was issued, forwarded her typed summary to other government officials. The State Department has redacted the names and agencies of everyone she alerted. It is unlikely that her concerns failed to reach the FBI.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), a member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee and ranking member of its Subcommittee on Government Operations, told me late Thursday he had confirmed with U.S. officials that Kavalec’s memo was forwarded to the FBI in the Oct. 13, 2016, email.

“This once again shows officials at the FBI and (Department of Justice) DOJ were well aware the dossier was a lie — from very early on in the process all the way to when they made the conscious decision to include it in a FISA application,” he said. “The fact that Christopher Steele and his partisan research document were treated in any way seriously by our Intelligence Community leaders amounts to malpractice.”

After Kavalec forward the information to others in the State Department, including former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, Nuland could clearly see the partisan motivation of Steele’s dossier and forbade them from further contact with Steele.

But it is almost certain the FBI knew of Steele’s contact with State and his partisan motive. That’s because former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland says she instructed her staff to send the information they got from Steele to the bureau immediately and to cease contact with the informer because “this is about U.S. politics, and not the work of — not the business of the State Department, and certainly not the business of a career employee who is subject to the Hatch Act.”

There’s much more at The Hill where you can read Solomon’s full article, including how Kavalec noted that Steele was working with the NY Times and the Washington Post and how Steele suggested that the Russians had mole working in the DNC.

  1. Boy howdy, if only Hillary had won all this would have been swept under the DNC rug and forgotten about. Now it looks like there are people who have some explaining to do.

  2. The propaganda machine will never report this seriously. Maybe not at all. They’ll at least throw their spin on it. They win, and it pisses me off. SOB’s.

    1. @ryan-o Pisses me off too. The media makes all the difference. If we actually had an honest media we would win elections so much easier.

    2. Serves you right for even bothering with the propaganda machine. Why give their the power of your eyeballs? There are plenty of other very credible reporting services.

  3. New reporting suggests FBI lied about dossier to FISA court and Lindsey Graham demands answers!

    When I first glanced at the headiness I thought it said NEWS instead of New.

    I knew my error the second I finished reading it because the Main Stream news would never report on such a thing.

  4. Well I’m sure this will get the same attention and hysteria when/if democrats and government criminals start going the hearings or are investigated. AG Barr? You’re on deck!

      1. Unless they were part of the shenanigans, I would think
        a Judge would be pretty angry that they were played
        and lied to.

        1. I’m not a fan of a “secret court” unless it’s in gitmo. I hope Trump/AG Barr fixes all this mess.

    1. According to, Joe DiGenova the FISA court judges are very angry for being deceived by the FBI.

    1. Do you believe Graham will follow through.The FISA Judges are being awful quiet about their part.

  5. The refrain from the media for the past three years has been that Donald Trump threw out all norms of conduct, so any resistance is justified.

    But as I’ve been saying for quite some time, it’s important to remember that it was the Obama administration that threw out the norms. Not just of spying on opposing campaigns, but of trying to use that spying to launch false investigations, sabotage an election when it was over, convince electors in the electoral college to refuse to vote for the person who won their states, continue investigating the president-elect even after he gets inaugurated and the FBI is supposed to be answering to him, and on and on.

    It shouldn’t be any surprise that they threw out the Woods procedures normally used in the FISA court when they though Hillary would win, and it would all be swept under the rug.

    As the dirt comes out, the cockroaches will be scurrying.

    1. @hubman This is part of the reason they are trying to destroy Barr. This and so they can continue to claim that Trump is guilty but Barr is hiding it.

      Did you see where Comey said that the FBI doesn’t spy? So the FBI never wiretaps or anything? He’s intentionally parsing words because they obviously do SPY.

      1. @kong1967 We are witnessing a severely panicked democratic party in their death throes. Everything they have done to Trump and anyone associated with him has blown up in their faces.

        Despite what the propaganda ministers in the MSM want the general public to believe they are losing their grip on their false narratives. The vast majority of the American public is wide awake and no amount of the left’s lies and spin doctoring is going to save them. Wait and see how they react when I.G., Michael Horowitz and Special Federal Prosecutor, John Huber releases their reports. There’s also A.G., Barr’s investigation that will no doubt be devastating.

        Get your popcorn and adult beverages ready because the proverbial you-know-what is going to hit the fan and there is nothing the democrats can do to stop what’s coming.

        1. @conserve-58 I hope you’re right but I’m not so optimistic. As far as the investigations go there is a lot of evidence to be optimistic about….if it weren’t for an ignorant public that believes every lie the MSM and DNC tell them. I don’t place my faith in Republicans to hold people accountable either.

          Even Trump said “she’s suffered enough” (Hillary). It’s no wonder the left keeps getting more corrupt. There aren’t any consequences. Crime pays.

  6. Only the beginning folks. Buckle up. It’s going to be a wild ride. But don’t forget to buy the popcorn because watching the Dems become apoplectic might be fun after the last two years. Turn around can be nasty.

    1. @sjmom I posted almost the same thing above, sjmom. We are of like minds in that we’re about to see the evisceration of the democrats from our midst.

  7. Hm, could that DNC mole be Debbie Wasserman-Schultz?

    There is also the fact that John Brennan lied under oath about when he found out about the dossier. We discovered via investigations conducted by Nunes, Solomon and Sarah Carter that Brennan was directly involved in the dissemination of the dossier to the FBI as soon as he got a copy of it. Clapper was also involved in leaking the dossier to his contacts in the press. There is also the fact that I.G., Michael Horowitz ‘s investigation concluded that the FISA warrant’s reliance on the Carter Page intel was insufficient and thus made their justification to extend the warrant illegal.

    The Obama administration’s illegal counter intelligence and espionage operation to destroy Trump’s chances of winning the election while institutionally rigging the system to insure that Hillary won is not in doubt. The soon to be released second investigation conducted by I.G., Michael Horowitz should provide the definitive information as to the the FBI’s, the DOJ’s and the State Department’s involvement in the fabricated Russian collusion hoax.

    There should have been a proper, thorough, independent and impartial investigation into the Guccifer 2.0 persona. The Special Counsel certainly hasn’t done that job and, in retrospect, looks to have been ill-equipped (and perhaps somewhat reluctant) to do so from the outset.”

  9. Not only that, but while all this new information is coming out, Senator Burr saw fit to subpoena Don Jr. again and play into the Dem/media hands.

    1. None of this is playing well in Peoria. No one likes attacking family members and no one likes weaponizing the IRS against them. These are kitchen table issues triggering the worst fears about big, intrusive and punitive government power.

      Go for it Democrats. Make America squirm.

  10. Related: Speaking of investigations: Giuliani is traveling to the Ukraine to talk with Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky about two major investigations. One about the fact that the DNC and the “Hillary Clinton campaign may have worked with Ukrainians to illegally help Clinton by revealing damaging information about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.”

    The second investigation pertains to “allegations that former Vice President Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor in order to take the heat off the prosecutor’s probe into a company that employed his son as a board member.”

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/giuliani-will-travel-to-ukraine-saying-countrys-probes-may-be-very-very-helpful-for-trump

    1. @sheerpolitics I have posted a few times that there must be an investigation into connections between the Ukrainian government, members of the Hillary Clinton campaign, (the Podesta Bros.) and Joe Biden. Joe Biden bragged about getting the Ukrainian Inspector General fired in an attempt to prevent him from investigation his son, Hunter’s sketchy involvement with a Ukrainian company.

      I’ve been saying that once this information about Joe Biden’s nefarious dealings in the Ukraine becomes public knowledge it will destroy his campaign.

  11. He talks a lot,but I never have heard him mention what he will do with these crooks.Arrest,Prosecute and incarcerate.Big talker ,but no action

  12. J. Edgar Hoover must be twirling in his grave over how corrupt the FBI became under James Comey’s leadership. Comey has permanently tarnished the credibility of the Bureau and sullied a once-storied law enforcement agency. And obama probably knew what was going on and either encouraged it or looked the other way.

    1. Obama and his team came in from Chicago and did what they did best.Make Corruption much easier to perpetrate through bribery

    2. Correction, Comey is just carrying on the Hoover tradition. Hoover would be the last person to spin in his grave over this ham-handed Russiagate caper. He would probably have offered professional tips how to better cover their tracks.

    3. @army_pilot1967 On the contrary, Hoover was a very devious, compromised and corrupt person. He abused his power to amass a data base of incriminating information he could use to blackmail anyone that got in his way. Organized crime leaders, corporate big wigs, politicians and Hollywood celebrities intensely feared him because they knew he could ruin them if he so chose to do so.

  13. That bit about a mole inside the DNC? Why is everyone skipping that part… if they thought Trump needed spied on, why did that bit get ignored?

    Shouldn’t that mean they should put spies in the DNC? Or was it that kid that got killed?

    1. Seth Rich and Juilan Assange are coming in for credible review again in regards to the DNC leaks (was not hacked by Russians – no proof of that)

  15. Gotta say while I still don’t trust Graham(nesty) I applaud him for his efforts here.

    The one thing that has continued to puzzle me about this “Russian Collusion scheme” is how Hillary Clinton, along with the other “major players” in this fraud have been so arrogant and acted so indifferent while this fraud is slowly exposed… Until just this second.

    I believe that the reason the “major players” are acting so calm and arrogant is because frauds like the Russian Collusion hoax is simply NORMAL OPERATING PROCEDURES for them, and not out of the normal scope of what they’re capable of.

    As this ugly fraud is finally dragged into the light of day for all the world to see, those responsible are literally telling us with their reactions and words “Hey, this is no big deal, we do this sort of thing all the time – probably not our biggest fraud to be honest. We Democrats weaponized the FISA Courts, the FBI, the CIA and the NSA for our benefit and have been using them as political weapons for decades. In fact, you all would be SHOCKED at all the innocent people we’ve FRAMED and political opponents we’ve ELIMINATED.”

  17. Joe DiGenova claims to have information that the IG has already determined that the three FISA warrant extensions on Carter Page were illegal, and is investigating the original FISA warrant was also illegal, especially in light of this new information.

    If so, it certainly explains some of the panicked reactions by Democrats.

    I believe once all the dirt comes out, the Mueller report will be widely considered discredited. Except by Democrats and the media, of course, which will instead try to discredit the IG and other investigations.

    1. @hubman The Mueller investigation was a total sham from the moment Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to conduct the investigation. The simple fact that Mueller never even considered to investigate anyone involved from the Obama administration or the Hillary Clinton campaign makes the $25 million dollar investigation completely null and void.

    1. From the very earliest reports about this Russiagate daisy chain, it revolved around Joseph Mifsud. Then both he and even mention of his name went totally missing. Including rumors of his death to make sure he was dropped out of all future Russiagate conversations and investigation.

      Like the dog who did not bark, or the postman who always rang twice, this intentional “disappearance” of a seminal key figure presumed guilt in my mind. Glad to see he has been brought back into the full picture.

    @sarahcwestwood
    Five Republicans and no Democrats have so far read the less redacted version of the Mueller report that DOJ made available to 12 congressional leaders,
    @LauraAJarrett
    reports. This version of the Mueller report only contains redactions of grand jury material.
    12:42 PM · May 10, 2019 ·

    1. @tracy Discovering that five republicans and no democrats read the less redacted version is certainly a very interesting development.

  28. When is the IG going to finish his freaking report. I’ve been hearing about it for a year. Get the lead out, give us the report.

    1. May-June – keep your knickers untwisted and get a new hobby. Revenge is a dish best served cold.

  29. The propaganda machine will never report this seriously. Maybe not at all. They’ll at least throw their spin on it. They win, and it pisses me off. SOB’s.

    1. @ryan-o Pisses me off too. The media makes all the difference. If we actually had an honest media we would win elections so much easier.

      1. The “media” makes a difference for whom? Don’t give them credit they have not earned. They are an echo chamber for government union employee unions only – all 17 million of them.

        They deal in confirmation bias only. The other 283 million people in this country still control the debate; not MSM.

        1. @factotum I respectfully disagree with you. I mean, you are exactly right about what they are, but I think they have a lot of influence on the dumbed down populace. It’s not an accomplishment I would be proud of as a member of the media. I lied to and fooled millions of people today….I am so good! It’s something they should be ashamed of.

    2. Serves you right for even bothering with the propaganda machine. Why give their the power of your eyeballs? There are plenty of other very credible reporting services.

  30. Unbelievable. Well, not so much. None of this will hit news outlets like CNN or the others. It is extremely appalling that we have spent over two years on a fake investigation and still continuing when it was the Democrats and certain members in the FBI that were setting it all up with complete lies.

    Heads should roll. People should get fired (if still employed) and charges should brought. This cannot be categorized as “taken out of context”.

  31. Well I’m sure this will get the same attention and hysteria when/if democrats and government criminals start going the hearings or are investigated. AG Barr? You’re on deck!

  32. Bombshell! The walls are closing in!! The beginning of the end.

    Only this time for real.

  36. This is outrageous and ALL Americans should be up in arms about it now that things are becoming blatantly clear, but people are too divided and tribal to see past their biases. Really sad for our country.

  37. Hells Bells Lindsay…! Where were you all when you had control of both houses? Crickets….

    1. @New West The McCain cloak of oppressive leadership and control has lifted and LG has found his spine. I’m rather enjoying it.

      1. I don’t trust him along with a pile of others…Just wait til he weighs in on immigration. Do you know he said during the Kavanaugh circus that if a Supreme Court pick came up during 2020, he would vote no with the Loons on a pick during an election year…This was Not the same as Obama’s argument cause Trump is running for a second term where as Obama wasn’t…Not that he didn’t want to.LOL…anyway Lindsay is a Rino and there are still a bunch of them there that are exactly like McCain…Plus he’s up for re-election…

    2. The Rinos and the never Trumpers like the Dems have been in shock that Trump won. While the Dems went bat crap crazy the Rinos and NT’s can’t figure out which way to go. I think they realize Trump and his base are not going away and maybe they had better get on the train before it leaves them out.

      1. That train left a long time ago. The NTs jumped on their own
        train, too bad for them the wheels are starting to fall off.
        Pretty soon we’ll be seeing them trying to edge their way
        back to the deplorables at TRS. Speaking closer to
        home of course.

        1. @NYGino Don’t punch their tickets and let them back!! They will never deserve another chance….well, most of them anyway.

          1. @lillie-belle You know I really liked talking to some of those folks. Some of them I hate to say I didn’t enjoy their comments. The one’s I liked and respected seemed to let things get personal with Trump, and just wouldn’t let the feelings go regardless of the facts. Those are the ones I won’t mind seeing again if the start to think vs feel again.

        2. I believe the NY Times wants to cover their Butt for all the Bribery they did with the FBI and the Boys working under Comey. Remember the article that came out about all the freebies the Times was passing out,via their reporters to the agents for all the information.

      2. They have the illusion that when Trump is gone things will just go back to the way they were. They are in for a rude awakening.

    3. In a secret ceremony only I observed, Trey Gowdy was spotted channeling his spirit into the strangely motionless form of Lindsey Graham.

  38. President Trump and AG Barr need to be forthcoming on the Horowitz and Huber findings… we want to see indictments and people going to jail. Comey, McCabe, Clapper, and Brennan need to be the first ones testifying in front of a Grand Jury. Notice how CNN gave Comey a platform last night? They’re circling the wagons because they know what’s coming… Who lied to the FISA Court judges?

    In other news… The MSM is starting to focus on Giuliani going to Ukraine to investigate Biden’s son and his financial dealings in that country. Why did VP Biden threaten Ukraine with withdrawing $1 billion in aid?
    MSM is saying Giuliani will use Ukraine to “meddle” in the 2020 elections… just wait for it!!

    1. Which Sunday morning show suddenly trotted out Yates a week or 2 ago? They are definitely circling the wagons. I hate them for what they do and what they don’t do.

    2. Biden’s son also has extensive investments in China too. Watch for China meddling in our 2020 elections. If Biden wins, our Asian allies (especially Taiwan) should be very afraid.

    3. @ciceroni-excogitatoris When the first indictment is handed down, I’ll start to believe and have hope. We really need to get back to everyone being equal under the law. The political class and their friends seeming to get special treatment is one of the scariest things I’ve seen in this country in my lifetime.

      1. If there’s one other thing President Trump can give us back is our justice system, where everyone is equal under the law. I have to applaud the man for withstanding the full weight of the US government investigating him and the pressure he was under for 2 years!

        Comey, McCabe, Strzok, et al. should be facing a Grand Jury and indicted before the 2020 election… that would guarantee a Trump landslide, along with our current economic numbers!

  39. Place your bets if Goober Grahamnesty has the backbone to follow this all the way to the end. I have real doubts. Too many praetorian guards of the Obama “legacy.”

    1. @bill813 He’s going to follow through because he’s angry. That’s what will drive him.

      1. We heard the same thing about another angry SC politician, Trey Gowdy. We also heard Trump say over and over, “Lock her up.” Way too much talk without action from most of them and I won’t be Charlie Brown while Lucy whips the football away. Besides, there are still Obama supporters in the DoJ to obstruct this. If I’m wrong about all this, no one will be happier than me.

        1. @bill813 I understand but now there’s a new sheriff in town. The letters were sent to Pompeo and Horowitz. I heard last night Horowitz is looking into the FISAs.

      2. @sjmom I tend to agree. LG seems to have found his spine and embraces his outrage and anger. I’m rather liking the new Grizzly Graham.

        1. @lillie-belle I am too and it’s about time. He’s really angry at what happened in 2016 and over the last two years.

    2. Not too long ago Graham said he plans to get to the bottom of this to find out what happened so it never occurs again and the American people know what happened. He also said he wasn’t looking to have anyone pay for their misdeeds. Well, we know what happened so what’s he going to do? Get all the dirty details, put them in our faces, and piss us all off when everyone, especially those high up (Obama, Clinton, etc.), get away with it? No thanks.

    Five Republicans and no Democrats have so far read the less redacted version of the Mueller report that DOJ made available to 12 congressional leaders,
    @LauraAJarrett
    reports. This version of the Mueller report only contains redactions of grand jury material.
    12:42 PM · May 10, 2019 ·

    1. @tracy Discovering that five republicans and no democrats read the less redacted version is certainly a very interesting development.

  41. When is the IG going to finish his freaking report. I’ve been hearing about it for a year. Get the lead out, give us the report.

  42. Unbelievable. Well, not so much. None of this will hit news outlets like CNN or the others. It is extremely appalling that we have spent over two years on a fake investigation and still continuing when it was the Democrats and certain members in the FBI that were setting it all up with complete lies.

    Heads should roll. People should get fired (if still employed) and charges should brought. This cannot be categorized as “taken out of context”.

  43. This is outrageous and ALL Americans should be up in arms about it now that things are becoming blatantly clear, but people are too divided and tribal to see past their biases. Really sad for our country.

  44. Hells Bells Lindsay…! Where were you all when you had control of both houses? Crickets….

    1. @New West The McCain cloak of oppressive leadership and control has lifted and LG has found his spine. I’m rather enjoying it.

      1. I don’t trust him along with a pile of others…Just wait til he weighs in on immigration. Do you know he said during the Kavanaugh circus that if a Supreme Court pick came up during 2020, he would vote no with the Loons on a pick during an election year…This was Not the same as Obama’s argument cause Trump is running for a second term where as Obama wasn’t…Not that he didn’t want to.LOL…anyway Lindsay is a Rino and there are still a bunch of them there that are exactly like McCain…Plus he’s up for re-election…

    2. The Rinos and the never Trumpers like the Dems have been in shock that Trump won. While the Dems went bat crap crazy the Rinos and NT’s can’t figure out which way to go. I think they realize Trump and his base are not going away and maybe they had better get on the train before it leaves them out.

      1. That train left a long time ago. The NTs jumped on their own
        train, too bad for them the wheels are starting to fall off.
