Ahead of today’s much-anticipated testimony from James Comey, prepared remarks from the former FBI Director were released to the media.
Amidst all the fake news that has been swirling around Trump – Russia collusion, one thing has been cleared up for certain, Trump is vindicated, and on record with the FBI, noting that the Buzzfeed dossier spread around the web referring to hookers and bed wetting was categorically false…
On the morning of March 30, the President called me at the FBI. He described the Russia investigation as “a cloud” that was impairing his ability to act on behalf of the country. He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia. He asked what we could do to “lift the cloud.” I responded that we were investigating the matter as quickly as we could, and that there would be great benefit, if we didn’t find anything, to our having done the work well. He agreed, but then re-emphasized the problems this was causing him.
The unverified intelligence dossier published in its entirety by Buzzfeed, was a well coordinated smear campaign, alleging Russian prostitutes urinated on a bed — while Trump watched — in a hotel room where former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, once slept.
FBI Director James Comey used the fake news dossier (“Trump Dossier”) to secure a FISA warrant to secretly monitor Trump aides.
The dossier was compiled by an anonymous source (who we now know as former MI6 agent Christopher Steele), who claimed the Russian government had been nurturing Donald Trump as a potential president for “at least 5 years,” offering him lucrative business opportunities, supplied with intelligence, and arranged for “perverted sexual acts” to be able to blackmail Trump.
The entire dossier was such fiction that the majority of mainstream news media outlets refused to run the story. It took fake news listicle site Buzzfeed to publish the dossier, and very fake news CNN to reference the Buzzfeed article.
