There's another conservative memo going after the Trump dossier author
- Alfred Griffith
This document follows closely in the footsteps of the memo commissioned by House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-California), which was finally made public on Friday.
The new criminal referral issued by Sens. Lindsey Graham, of SC, late Tuesday released a criminal referral they had sent to the Justice Department earlier this year asking for an investigation into the former spy, Christopher Steele.
The latest details, which detail alleged spy abuses, are likely to complicate efforts by Democratic leaders to rebut the allegations and keep the public focused on the continuing investigation into claims the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.
According to the senators, the media contact in September wasn't disclosed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department in its application to obtain a warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, to spy on former Trump adviser Carter Page.
Steele is the former British spy who was hired and paid $160,000 by Fusion GPS, a research company working on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to do opposition research on Donald Trump.
That "dossier" has been "revealed to be a political opposition research report by the Clinton campaign and the DNC that was presented in the FISA applications by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a counterintelligence document", according to reports following the declassification Friday of an explosive memo by the House Intelligence Committee members.

U.S. airstrike repels attack by Syrian regime-backed troops

He went onto call Paul McCartney , "the worst bass player I ever heard", and didn't even want to get started on Ringo Starr . He's a insane motherf-cker. "Limited mentally - a megalomaniac, narcissistic ", the 84-year-old said. "I can't stand him".
Former British MI6 agent Christopher Steele spoke with investigators on special counsel Robert Mueller's team for two days, the Telegraph reports. Steele's alleged lying "is relevant to his credibility as a source", Grassley and Graham said.
"It did so based on Mr. Steele's personal credibility and presumably having faith in his process of obtaining the information", it continues.
Mr Steele has previously refused requests to appear before Congressional committees looking into how Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.
The FBI did cut ties with Steele after it learned he had provided information to news outlets in October 2016, a matter which was disclosed to the court.
This move has fueled accusations the agency was running a highly politicized surveillance operation meant to help then-candidate Clinton.
The senators said Steele wrote a second document detailing collusion allegations between Trump's campaign and Russian government and business interests that weren't in the dossier. And the same will likely be true of a Democratic memo drafted by members of the House intelligence committee if Trump allows its release later this week. "The government should not be blotting out information that it admits isn't secret, and it should not take dramatic steps by Congress and the White House to get answers that the American people are demanding", Grassley said.
