Trump dossier

FBI has not verified Trump dossier

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The bottom line appears to be that the FBI and the Justice Department are not vouching for the accuracy of the substantive allegations of collusion in the dossier. Indeed, a careful reading of Adam Schiff's interview with the Wall Street Journal suggests even the combative top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee isn't doing so, either. The most explosive parts of the dossier remain unverified.

Conservatives In House of Representatives Go On Offense Against Mueller

A group of principled conservatives in the U.S. House of Representatives did what Speaker of the House Paul Ryan will never do – they went on offense against Robert Mueller and the rest of the insiders protecting Hillary Clinton and the worst villains of the Obama-era swamp.

Indictments and ham sandwiches

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

Given the many moving parts in the Mueller probe and the loss of focus on the primary reason for it, the government may have a difficult time proving its case in court. But with unlimited funds and a staff of lawyers who have Democratic affiliations, you can bet they will try to make more than a ham sandwich out of it.

A Bipartisan Dossier of Collusion

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

It’s not clear that there was Trump collusion with Russia, but Trump won, so we’re still hearing about it. Had Hillary won, there would still be collusion with Russia, but we’d be hearing that line that Clinton-administration scandals made an eight-year refrain: Everybody does it!

The 'Trump dossier,' like so much else, is due to the corruption of the Clintons

Editors, Washington Examiner

The truth about the dossier is a reminder of what was and what was not at stake in last year's presidential contest. Ever since Trump's election, the moral posturing by some of America's sleaziest liars has become nearly unbearable. If you wonder why voters chose not to elect Clinton, even though it meant something as extraordinary as choosing Trump, you need look no further.

The Clintons Corrupt Everything They Touch

Until Democrats rid themselves of the Clintons, and stop covering for them, the Democratic Party cannot be considered a legitimate political party; it is merely one cog in a vast conspiracy to justify and cover up the Clintons' crimes.

Collusion and the Trump Dossier

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The administration complains about unmasking, but never takes the steps Trump could easily take to expose it as an abuse of power. Just like it complains about the dossier, but never takes the steps Trump could easily take to expose it as a fraud. None of this would prove collusion between Trump’s campaign and the Kremlin. It does suggest, however, that there were good reasons to conduct an investigation.

New deadline as standoff deepens between House, FBI over Trump dossier

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The prospect of the FBI adopting a partisan opposition research project raised "questions about the FBI's independence from politics," said Republican Sen. Charles Grassley, who is also investigating the dossier. In the end, it's always possible that the GOP's concerns are exaggerated, that there is little to the story. That's what the House committee wants to find out -- without, so far, information from the FBI that could shed light on the matter.

FBI fights public release of Trump dossier info

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Senate investigators have had problems getting the FBI to reveal information about the Trump dossier. They're not the only ones. Outside groups filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests are running up against a stone wall when it comes to the dossier. When it comes to the Freedom of Information Act, the FBI is resisting the release of even the most basic information. "They're fighting us on everything," Judicial Watch chief Tom Fitton told me recently. "They're fighting us tooth and nail."

Next stop for Trump dossier probe: the FBI

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The dossier remains critical in the Trump-Russia investigation for several reasons. It contains a number of sensational allegations on the question of whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians. It raises questions about Clinton supporters indirectly paying Kremlin-linked Russians for dirt on the Republican presidential candidate, now the president. And it played a role in the rapid deterioration of relations between Trump and Comey.
