  • Donald Trump: Russia dossier a 'Crooked Hillary pile of garbage'

The president cited a morning talk show.

President Trump on Tuesday blasted the so-called "dossier" - which was compiled during the 2016 campaign and contained salacious allegations against him - as a "pile of garbage" and accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation of relying on it to go after his campaign.

"Dossier is bogus, '" Trump tweeted out.

The Fox News report that Trump is quoting is itself bogus - parts of the dossier seem to be accurate, and the FBI investigation is uncovering more unnerving aspects of Trump's relationship with Russian Federation during his campaign.

The dossier was a collection of unverified claims about alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

The president added "And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!" "The question is, how was it funded?"

The 35-page dossier, arranged by a previous British covert agent, Christopher Steele, claims the Trump crusade conspired with the Russians, and incorporates uncorroborated, lascivious assertions about Trump himself, which he has a couple of times denied.

Trump was referencing the unverified allegations that he had colluded with Russian intelligence before the U.S. election to sabotage Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

Steele himself is a reliable investigator - it was his work that helped reveal a scandal in Federation Internationale de Football Association before he began work looking into then-candidate Donald Trump.

ABC News detailed last August that Fusion GPS was paid by a still-obscure Republican amid that gathering's primaries to uncover soil on Trump.

At this point Michael Horowitz, the inspector general for the Department of Justice, is reviewing whether McCabe should have taken himself out of the Clinton email investigation because his wife got more than $700,000 in campaign donations from two PACs, including one controlled by a Hillary Clinton ally, during a political race earlier.

The investigation into Russia's meddling in our elections a year ago was also what prompted the investigation to include members of Trump's inner circle. Both Trump and Obama were briefed on the document's allegations in December 2016.

This comes after President Trump confirmed he is not planning on firing Robert Mueller. Former MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, who worked as a spy in Moscow for 20 years, was unmasked as its author.
