Bill Barr reminded Congress that the Steele report could have been produced with Russian disinformation. The Daily Caller reports:
Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday he is reviewing whether the infamous Steele dossier was a product of Russian disinformation.
Barr made the explosive revelation during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing regarding the results of the special counsel’s probe. The investigation severely undercut the Democrat-funded Steele dossier, which alleged a “well-developed conspiracy” between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
Barr was asked about the origins of the dossier during an exchange with Texas Sen. John Cornyn.
“Can we state with confidence that the Steele dossier was not part of the Russian disinformation campaign?” asked Cornyn, a Republican.
It is mind boggling that the only Russian collusion was introduced to American politics through a report that the Clinton campaign paid for, and has managed to blame Trump for it.
