US President Donald Trump questions FBI's integrity in Russian Federation investigation

President Donald Trump went after the salacious and unverified information about him in an angry early morning tweet President Donald Trump went after the salacious and unverified information about him in an angry early morning tweet

This was the "dossier" that some members of Congress suggest was used as "evidence" by the Obama administration before a FISA court in order to obtain permission to spy on the Trump campaign in search of evidence that would be used to support Hillary Clinton's eventual unsuccessful campaign. But in the months since the dossier first leaked, independent investigations by the USA intelligence community have corroborated key details first uncovered in the dossier, contrary to Trump's assertion that the entire document is "bogus".

Trump was referencing the unverified allegations that he had colluded with Russian intelligence before the U.S. election to sabotage Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

The scathing tweet was apparently triggered by Trump having watched a segment on Fox & Friends, one of the president's favourite news talk shows, and one known for its friendly slant on all things Trump.

On Saturday and Sunday, Trump targeted FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, whose role in the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server has come under scrutiny because his wife, Jill McCabe, accepted $450,000 in campaign contributions from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe's PAC and more than $207,000 from the state Democratic Party when she ran for Virginia state Senate in 2015 - money donated before McCabe was promoted to deputy director. "'Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier".

Trump habitually tweets about "Fox & Friends" as the morning show airs and often includes the program's handle in his tweets.




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.

That "fact" cited by Perez - that anti-Trump Republicans originally funded the dossier - has been ruled "false" by fact-checkers.

The dossier, which was compiled by former MI6 intelligence officer Christopher Steele, revealed how Trump's business connections to the Kremlin could influence his policy as president. Her campaign hired a law firm which in turn hired Fusion GPS to find opposition research on Trump.

Parts of the dossier, which included claims about Russian prostitutes, haven't been confirmed or disproved.

"Clinton crusade and DNC paid for inquire about that prompted the counter Trump Fake News Dossier". Fusion GPS was already conducting such work for the right-leaning Washington Free Beacon.
