Donald Trump: Russia dossier a 'Crooked Hillary pile of garbage'

Trump questions FBI's integrity in Russia investigation

Trump's tweet might not really be any surprise though, seeing how he's been trashing the FBI, James Comey and Andrew McCabe quite a bit in recent weeks. "And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!" FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION.

"'Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier".

President Trump on Tuesday blasted the so-called "dossier" - which was compiled during the 2016 campaign and contained salacious allegations against him - as a "pile of garbage" and accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation of relying on it to go after his campaign.

Trump fired off the tweet as Republicans in Congress have followed his lead and turned up the heat on top FBI officials over the alleged "bias" among top agents pursuing the Russian Federation investigation.

The Fox and Friends morning show, a favourite of the President, ran several segments about alleged conflicts of interest by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as well as the dossier.

Meanwhile, President Trump's legal team makes a prediction on the Special Counsel's investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

The network referenced a Washington Times report.

In October, The Washington Post reported that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party had funded the investigation, which came to light after the November election and amid allegations about links between Trump and the Kremlin. A Democratic lawyer then provided payments on behalf of the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign to continue research on Trump after the primaries.

Compiled for his Republican and Democrat opponents, the dossier also claimed Trump had been compromised by Russia's FSB spy agency when he was secretly filmed with prostitutes at a hotel in Moscow.
