It has become quite clear that this whole Trump dossier thing was a joke from the very start. It’s still not a verified source for the most part and we now know that it was one of the biggest pieces of evidence, if not the biggest, used to spy on the Trump campaign.
That’s something that should worry every American regardless of party but it seems like Democrats don’t seem to mind too much.
Now, Rep. Jim Jordan is talking about Clinton allies trying to put together a second anti-Trump dossier and trying to “rig the game”.
Here’s the latest.
From The Daily Caller:
Jordan was asked about a possible second dossier and said Clinton operatives Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer had paid Christopher Steele to do opposition research, but then told Steele which specific details to include.
“The names we keep hearing are Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer — people who have been around the Clintons as being a part of this. But I also think it’s kind of interesting because what it looks like is, they paid Steele to put together the dossier and told him what to put in,” Jordan said. “Talk about rigging the game and putting together a document that will serve your purposes as an opposition research document.”
He went on to make the Benghazi connection.
“That is what the Clinton team did and then when you see names like Sidney Blumenthal coming up. We deposed this guy during the Benghazi hearings,” Jordan continued. “He has been with the Clintons forever. He was knee deep in the whole Libya, Benghazi story, particularly the story where they weren’t square with the American people about what was the actual catalyst of the attack, and they tried to blame it on video.”
Here’s the clip of Jordan.
This is all about Clinton cronies having their fingerprints all over these dossiers and that’s a huge concern.
“But I also think it’s kind of interesting because what it looks like is they paid (former British spy Christopher) Steele to put together the dossier. Then told him what to put in it.
“Talk about rigging the game and putting together a document that will serve your purposes as an opposition research document,” Jordan said.
Blumenthal had been deposed during the Benghazi committee hearings with Hillary Clinton, Jordan continued, and “he has been with the Clintons forever. He was knee-deep in the whole Libya, Benghazi story,” Jordan said, referring to the Benghazi, Libya, attacks in 2012, which resulted in the deaths of Americans and led to questioning of then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over security lapses.
We still have a lot to learn about what our government did in order to spy on the Trump team but it is pretty clear that they went overboard.
Hopefully, we will soon have all the answers on that.
Clearly, Democrats and government officials at high levels have a lot of explaining to do.
