Newly declassified documents show that former FBI Director James Comey purposefully lied about the Steele Dossier.

According to Town Hall:

Newly-declassified documents show then-FBI Director James Comey purposefully lied about the Steele Dossier. He wrote an email to then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper saying the dossier couldn’t be “sufficiently corroborate[d].” Despite the lack of corroboration, Comey still signed the FISA warrant that resulted in the surveillance of Carter Page.

Below is Comey’s Jan. 12, 2017 email (emphasis mine):


just had a chance to review the proposed talking points on this for today. Perhaps it is a nit, but I worry that it may not be best to say “The IC has not made any judgment that the information in the document [dossier] is reliable.” I say that because we HAVE concluded that the source [redacted] is reliable and has a track record with us of reporting reliable information; we have some visibility into his source network, some of which we have determined to be subsources in a position to report on such thing; and much of what he reports in the current document is consistent with and corroborative of other reporting included in the body of the main IC report. That said, we are not able to sufficiently corroborate the reporting to include it in the body of the report.

That all rings in my ears as more complicated than “we have not made a judgement that the information in the document is reliable.” It might be better to say that “we have not been able to sufficiently corroborate the information to include it in the body of our Russia report but, for a variety of reasons, we thought it important to include it in our report to our senior-most audience.”


At this point in time, Operation Crossfire Hurricane – the FBI’s investigation into Trump campaign officials during the 2016 election and well after the Trump administration took hold in January 2017 – was already teetering. The CIA informed Comey and the FBI that Carter Page wasn’t a Russian spy. He was actually helping the CIA.

Fox News has more:

The Justice Department and FBI engaged in a “premeditated effort to dislodge the duly elected president of the United States,” Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., charged Monday on “Hannity.”

Gaetz was responding to a report published earlier Monday by Just the News which revealed that on Jan. 12, 2017, then-FBI Director James Comey had emailed then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and said that the FBI was “not able to sufficiently corroborate the reporting” in the now-infamous Steele dossier. The email was sent the same day Comey signed a FISA surveillance warrant that declared Steele’s reporting as verified.

“Not only did our own Justice Department set up the president on the Russia hoax, they did it with rotten information and they knew the information was rotten when they did it.”

“You know, I know, and all of the viewers know that there’s not going to be accountability under the Biden Justice Department,” Gaetz alleged, “because none of the career people there think the way to move up in the Biden Justice Department is to expose the Russia hoax. Instead they’re going to be targeting the President [Trump], his family members and the supporters of the America First movement.”

Hannity, Gaetz, and Chaffetz also blamed the failure to secure the Capitol on Nancy Pelosi.

  1. Why have no charges been filed against Comey, and the rest of the traitors who tried to take down a sitting president
    Why was he rewarded with a prestigious, high paid teaching position at Columbia University ?

      1. This is Al Hess not Richard tinge. I emplore you complain to this forum and have him taken off just like we did b4.
        We must all stick together.

    1. That because we still have a crooked justice department, crooked DOJ, crooked demo party and why justice will not be served on their account. It is a They are the domestic enemies of our country and we had better step up to defend OUR COUNTRY. They believe we are powerless against them – HA! Why do you think they are after our guns?

      1. You forgot to mention crooked GOP party. Very few, maybe a handful, are on our team. We really have one party that only varies in the stupidity and corruption. They all backstabbed us and the president in this election.

        1. There are two sides in the GOP … RINOS and Republicans … it is the RINOS that have backstabbed us and our True President … Donald J. Trump !

    2. Comey put this country and our President through HELL. He hurt our country and our foreign relations and hurt this curry. The dems are raging of treasonist and insurrection activities. WELL, this is exactly what Comey did. He should be charged, convicted, in prison, fined and LOOSE HIS PENSION. This is they only thing that will be accepted by most of us in this country!!!

    3. Who is there to file charges? And where? The FBI and DOJ certainly won’t. And swamp judges will most certainly see that any charges are dropped.

    1. there are a lot of people that should be going to jail. but, the progressive, liberal, commie-socialist democratic party will protect them all.

        1. It’s no longer Socialism when you completely adopt the the tactics of comrade Stalin. Right down to secret police (Comey etal) and terror in the streets-Antifa/BLM. This new neo-Bolshevism adds in some Nazi elements too. Capitalist Oligarchs and Corporations have jumped aboard to suppress the majority. It’s not Nationalism this time as in 1930 Germany. It’s NWO which you could simplify as Rotschildism. The NWO and the CCP are this current century’s Rothschild bastards.

        2. Socialism is when people like you castrate the masses and pay them a stiffen to remain nonproductive, drunk, drugged and ignorant of what the Democratic Party is doing to America..

        3. A corrupt belief that all decisions should be made by the govt because you idiots believe we the people cant take care of or think for ourselves…never has worked ANYWHERE and never will

    2. This is nothing! Why is Hillary not on jail? This woman, Susan Rice, and the spotless Obama are responsible for the death of 4 loyal American. They lied-they lied-they lied again about Bengazhi.

      1. I believe the only way to start taking justice is by one bullet per treasonous crime. The hell with the DOJ. It’s as crooked as those convicted. Start at the top and work on down the pedestal. Obama, Biden, Hillary, Comey, Schiff, Pelosi, Schumer, Clapper, CIA John, Rice and for good measure, blow ugly as fuck Soros’s ass the hell up too.

      1. Who is this idiot Tonge? My daughter and son-in-law both served in the military for 21 yrs. If they had been the ones who died in Bengazhi they Hillary and clan wouldn’t still BE!

      2. No crime because they are democommies you scumbag piece of shit this is a fake user anyway mr younger on Richards dick

    3. 5 years in prison? You and I would face the firing squad these assholes will get even cushier government jobs with the Biden Harris administration they have to repay their soldiers just not American soldiers

      1. Glad to see you here.I thought all the trolls like you were on holiday, or something. People like you, who know EVERYTHING, in their imagination, at least can put a smile on one’s face!

  2. Fantastic ! But so what ? He is a democrat and part of the deep state and the DC Swamp.
    He belongs to the Elite population (Clinton, Obama, Brennan, Clapper, The FBI, and so on. Therefore, not eligible for prosecution.

      1. Tinge, you are a result of the propaganda arm of the democRAT PARTY. You are the casualty of msm and there is no hope for you. MOVE TO VENEZUELA AND SEE HOW YOU LIKE SOCIALISM. YOU CAN VOTE IT ON BUT YOU HAVE TO FIGHT YOUR WAY OUT.

    1. I wonder how all the big & little donners to Columba Unv. feel about giving this crock a high paying job at there Unv. I would never send a child to any class he’s teaching..

    2. They have deep pockets. If you have enough money anything goes. Its been going on before 1913. The income tax, Federal Reserve Bank. Its been down hill ever since.

  3. If Comey said “the dossier couldn’t be “sufficiently corroborate[d].”.; then how is that a lie? Seems Trumpets still cling to anything to make the other side look bad, but have no proof. Just a diversion from all of Trump’s crimes.

    1. You are stuck with biden, the economy will suck…the cost of everything will inflate
      so the 15 dollar minimum wage hike will not even cover the basics.
      That’s why I call biden a amateur.
      biden destroys jobs and raises the minimum wage, really!!!!!

  4. Time to lock this lowlife,corrupt,dirty rotten top cop, up the rest of the pathetic, swamp rats,deep state,actors, plenty of room in GITMO.I hear.

  5. Our govt or the lack of is the Most Corrupt govt in the world. We tell other countries how to do it right ,only to turn around and destroy our political opponents. And then stuff their pockets with as much MONEY then can in the time they have left and beyond. Our country should tar and feather these communist and kick them out of our country. When in the HELL will America wake up and try these communist for their crimes? If we don’t, NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE.

  6. Nothing to see here! DOJ and FBI are too corrupt to file charges. Barr was deep state for years and so is Wray. Its up to the American people to stop the corruption. Joe Biden is a idiot, he proves it every day. Too many communists in our government. Nancy Pelosi and most of the house , Mitch McConnell and other rinos are to in the Senate. American people better get it together before you have nothing but breadlines, eating your pets and kissing the communism regime. Your losing your freedoms every day and do nothing.. You have alot fearful sheep.

    1. So, Orange Peel, what are YOU doing to to save our freedoms or are you just commenting, as an all-knowing foreigner, on what Americans should do?

  7. We the people knew he lied. Now what is the unjust dept going to do about it. Nothing I bet because they will take care of all the corrupt democrats and file charges against republicans that is not true. I don’t know how these people sleep at night. They were hired to uphold the law. If we do not have any law or the Constitution we do not have a country so we have to fight for both

  8. Nothing has been done to any of those who lied and many law suits have been fielded even against Hillary Clinton and nothing. Between the news media and those Democrats in Washington we have a bunch of commie in our gov’t and no one is held accountable. This should have started with Hillary and those in the JD, the CIA, Ukraine China Joe and son and the rest of those in our corrupt gov,t.

  9. Barr and Durham, the most trusted names in law enforcement probably knew this all along and dragged their feet so no one is prosecuted. Nothing will happen, Comey will be taken care of monetarily by his supporters and the corruption will be swept under the rug. Nothing to see here folks, just be careful and don’t get burned by the fire as we add the damaging evidence.

  10. When the time comes for these individuals to be judged we must stand together in our support and push back on our stand within the states and who we vote into these positions. There will come a time, be patient, no ungood deed goes untouched.

  11. What do you expect from a criminal organization. I thank Trump for remaining strong throughout this miscarriage of justice. Rest assure the democratic voters are now well aware of the activity within the democratic party.
    Ole joe just keeps doing everything like a amateur.
    Within the next month the democrats will star turning on each other.
    como-logic with the nursing home deaths
    Mis-count is the beginning.

  12. We must Think about the possibility of changing the republican party name to Americans freedom party medical people have no idea what the public or what the word public even means you ask them to the democratic party stand for an account democracy and freedom of course republican party and no idea you should be taking the van should be noticed and it should be addressed in let’s make the title of the party to see everything in the street and American freedom party something to think about and pray about

  13. In the last statement, Nancy Pelosi failed to secure the capitol – Trump requested the security on at least 3 different occasions that have been verified and he was turned down – so really folks – whose fault is it? Or did Pelosi have yet another agenda to keep all American distracted as to what their rancid doings that were taking place were?

  14. Most of us didn’t need declassified documents to know James “Commie” was lying. We knew he was lying as soon as he opened his mouth. He’s no different from the majority of of so-called leaders in D.C.!

  15. BFD: With the demonKKKrats in charge NOTHING will happen to Comey. He was banking on that.
    As was Brennan, Clapper, Rice, Lynch, Shrillary, etc.
    Barr did EVERYTHING he could to run out the clock on Trump’s administration – and he succeeded…

  16. If the report of Pelosi declining to ask for the NG after being asked by the DC police and the Sgt at Arms then she should be charged with many different charges starting with manslaughter. I am so sick of “investigation” when it goes nowhere and nobody is held responsible.

  17. Comey is a lying pile of DUNG ! He need to be arrested, tried, and sent to PRISON for no less than 30 years with no possibility of parole !

  18. So the FBI can lie but we go to jail for lieing. If the FBI can lie then any charges brought up we lied should also be a past by a saying it was a slip of the mind. They are not above the law. So this has to be done right or this could really cause more problems with out Court system.

  19. We are now in the same thing that happened in Germany, Hitler remind you of how a government can become a tranny Government!!!

  20. Someone should tell them it’s treason! Comey should be in jail with Brennan, Clapper, Obama, Clinton and many more from the swamp! When will it happen with crooked Biden! 47 yrs taking from Americansand doing nothing!


  22. Comey isn’t the only one that lied and belongs in Federal prison.

    Obama, Hillary, Clapper, Brennan, Lynch, Lerner, Holder, Biden(s), Strozk, Page, Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, Cuomo – to name several – ALL BELONG IN PRISON!

  23. Don’t for forget Comey lied on a Fiser Report more than once, that is a felony when you lie on a Fiser Report, not to mention other laws Comey broke.

  24. Who is there to file charges? And where? The FBI and DOJ certainly won’t. And swamp judges will most certainly see that any charges are dropped.

  25. For the same reason that no charges were filed against Reno for the Waco murders and no charges against the FBI HRT sniper that shot the unarmed woman holding baby at Ruby Ridge. Corrupt Democratic politicians

  26. No sh** doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure it out but so what the narrative still lives on on the msm what doesn’t live on is the fact that the guy that led the Washington insurrection was paid by cbs cnn abc to lead the riot and I’m pretty sure he was paid by George soros to lead riots all over America during the spring and summer destroying billions of dollars in property and businesses and taking several lives in the process but where are the fuc***g mainstream media ass***** on that story nowhere just like they are nowhere on the stories of comey and clapper lying to the American people and Congress and as always no charges are filed for treason which it most certainly is or at least perjury because they are members of the political elite and are above the law I wish there was a real insurrection and maybe it would have woke the pieces of dog s*it up and maybe they would do their jobs hopefully god does the job for the American people I h8 politicians and bureaucrats they’re going to be the death of our great country

  27. It’s not much of a surprise that Comey lied, that was the only thing he was good at. Also no surprise that the release of these documents has been ignored by the leftist controlled media.
    At one time we actually had journalists who relentlessly searched for truth, and who had the courage to present their findings to the public irregardless of the party affiliation or political position of the person or events they were investigating. Too bad the current crop is either fully on board with only presenting one side or they have been cowed into submission by their employers.
