House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes is demanding answers over the DOJ’s use of the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ to obtain FISA warrants against the Trump campaign; sending more than a dozen scathing letters to US officials requesting information about the debunked document.
According to the Daily Caller, Nunes fired-off more at least thirteen letters to current and former officials familiar with the incident, submitting multiple questions over the bureau’s use of the Steele dossier in FISA court applications against former Trump advisor Carter Page.
The crux of the letters centers on whether Steele’s identity -and his connections to both Hillary Clinton and the DNC- was revealed in the FISA applications, or whether that information was concealed from judges presiding over the case.
“If you do not provide timely answers on a voluntary process, the Committee will initiate compulsory process,” Schiff warned.
The letters come as Congressional investigators struggle to determine whether Christopher Steele’s Clinton-financed dossier was used to obtain FISA warrants in the run-up to the 2016 presidential race.
