The US administration decided to publish a memorandum on violations of the FBI in the investigation of the case of interference in the presidential election in 2016.
The document was sent to Congress, it declassified, and Congress will do what they are going to do. But I think that what is happening in the country is a shame. – Donald Trump, 45th US President
One of the main provisions of the document is the statement that the scandalous file of the former British intelligence officer MI6 Christopher Steel was the most important evidence on the basis of which the FBI began investigating actions against the Trump team. The file was published by BuzzFeed in January 2017. BuzzFeed himself noted that it was not possible to verify the information stated in the text.
In the dossier, in particular, it was told about the presence of Moscow compromising evidence on Trump. Later, the Washington Post released data that the dossier was prepared by Fusion GPS, which hired Steele, commissioned by Trump’s main rival in the presidential race of 2016, Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. It was in this dossier that Trump was accused of orgying prostitutes at a hotel in Russia, where Barak and Michelle Obama had previously stayed.
The document also says that the FBI, on the basis of Steele’s file, convinced the judge to issue a warrant for surveillance of one of the members of the Trump team – Carter Page. The authors of the report argue that the FBI mislead the judge: if he knew that the dossier was sponsored by Trump’s political opponent, he would not have given consent to the wiretapping of his staff members.
In parallel, the US continues a scandal, the heroes of which were high-ranking FBI employees who were lovers, Peter Strzhok and Lisa Page. They played important roles in both the investigation of the use of Hillary Clinton when she was the head of the State Department of personal mail for official correspondence, and in the investigation against Trump. From their correspondence, which has about 50 thousand messages, it followed that they called Trump an idiot and saw their task in preventing him from winning the presidential election. At the same time, they allegedly saw themselves as members of a certain “secret society” that works for the good of the country.
During the scandal, information surfaced that Clinton’s decision not to violate the law when using personal mail was prepared by the FBI before the 17 key witnesses were questioned, including before Clinton’s interrogation.
