#1 How does it go "You can't cheat a honest man"?

#2 I'm being constantly amazed at the venality of the gov't since I've been cynical about them for 40 years.

It just gets worse & worse.

#3 Steele was instrumental in constructing and selling a 'cover for action' which facilitated (made legal thru FISA) the monitoring of selector (telephonic) signals of US Pesons.

I'm not sure how much more obvious or what further evidence is necessary to reveal the criminal activity.

#5 Like all con's it plays upon the susceptibility of the target. Same game the boys and girls at the FBI use in a sting operation. One thing that we've all seen is the near total lack of self awareness and Freudian projection of those on the Left.

#6 I don't buy that the FBI was hoodwinked. Suppose the "premier U.S. domestic intelligence agency" was hoodwinked in which case the upper eschelon of the FBI should be fired for incompetence. Criminality is the more believable explanation.

#8 I would suspect that the FBI and DoJ were asked to spy on the Trump campaign and responded that they had no grounds to go to FISA for permission. Zero then passed that back the Shillary who then had her minions and a couple of million bucks conjure up the Steele "dossier."

The reason the FBI jumped on the dossier is that they were desperate for an excuse to tap into the Trump campaign (because some of them were realistic enough to recognize that she was in trouble in her blue wall states). That desperation made them very gullible and they took the dossier hook, line, and sinker.

I suspect some of that eagerness to pursue the dossier's fiction is circular. Shillary wanted inside info on Trump for an October surprise and went to Zero who went to the FBI. Then when the dossier arrived, Shillary told Zero, not the NSC weekly briefing, about the "dossier" which then had Zero "inquire about it" and then press the FBI to use it to get a FISA warrant.

Common sense says the FBI was pressed to spy on Trump and needed an excuse to do so. It is too convenient that the dossier arrived. The timing is too good.

I bet buried in those emails the FBI and DoJ don't want to release are communications about spying on Trump and further communications about why don't they use the "dossier" to spy on Trump.
