(National Sentinel) Set-up: In mid-December, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appeared before the House Judiciary Committee to provide testimony into the FBI’s relationship to the widely discredited “Russia dossier.”
We now know that unsubstantiated, unconfirmed document was used as the basis for the FBI’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act request to spy on minor 2016 Trump campaign figure Carter Page.
During his testimony, Rosenstein was asked some point-blank questions about the dossier, which alleged — among other things — that Donald Trump rented the same hotel room in Moscow that the Obamas had stayed in a couple years earlier and hired hookers to pee on the bed — in what’s called a “golden shower.”
During testimony, Rosenstein refused to answer a congressman’s direct question as to whether the FBI helped pay for the now-infamous “Trump dossier.”
In response to the question from Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., Rosenstein suggested he knew the answer but would not say for certain.
“Did the FBI pay for the dossier?” DeSantis asked.
“I’m not in a position to answer that question,” Rosenstein responded.
“Do you know the answer to the question?” the Republican DeSantis followed up.
“I believe I know the answer, but the Intelligence Committee is the appropriate committee…” Rosenstein began.
That led DeSantis to interject that his panel “had every right to the information” about payments related to the dossier, especially since the Judiciary Committee has oversight over the Department of Justice, which the FBI falls under.
“That’s not true! We have oversight over your department and the FBI and whether public funds were spent on a dossier-that’s not something that is classified! We have every right to that information. You should provide it,” he said.
What an outrage!
Over the weekend, a trove of documents the Justice Department finally provided to Judicial Watch after a year reveal the truth: Yes, the FBI paid for the bogus dossier that was subsequently used as the basis for an equally bogus “counterintelligence” operation — “Spygate” — against the 2016 Trump campaign.
Per The Donald Reddit:
And just who was it the FBI paid? Former British spy Christopher Steele, whose name is ridiculously redacted in this heavily-redacted portion of Judicial Watch documents.
This is the biggest scandal in the history of the country, and of course, the disgustingly dishonest establishment media is sitting it out.
