Here’s a fascinating point that seems to have gotten lost in the look at spying on President Donald Trump.
Why did the FBI offer to pay Christopher Steele for investigating Trump, Steele who had previously been paid by the Clinton team to investigate Trump?
How do you have an FBI under a Democratic administration trying to “3rd party investigate” a political opponent?
Chuck Grassley is determined to find out.
From Washington Examiner:
Sen. Charles Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has sent a letter to FBI Director James Comey demanding the story behind the FBI’s reported plan to pay the author of a lurid and unsubstantiated dossier on candidate Donald Trump. In particular, Grassley appears to be zeroing in on the FBI’s deputy director, Andrew McCabe, indicating Senate investigators want to learn more about McCabe’s role in a key aspect of the Trump-Russia affair.
Grassley began his investigation after the Washington Post reported on February 28 that the FBI, “a few weeks before the election,” agreed to pay former British spy Christopher Steele to investigate Trump.
Hillary Clinton supporters had actually paid Steele to investigate Trump before the FBI began talking with him.
So immediately that raises interesting questions too. Was there any communication between the Clinton team and the FBI with regard to Steele?
In the end, the FBI ended up not paying Steele after media attention to the dossier.
