President Trump unloaded on the now-debunked Trump dossier on social media Tuesday morning, blasting the “tainted” report and accusing the Department of Justice of using “this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage” to go after the President’s inner-circle.
Trump vented his frustration on twitter following an earlier tweet from Fox and Friends, saying the “Dossier is bogus” and the “FBI CANNOT (after all this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION.”
“WOW, @foxandfrlends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.” And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!” Trump tweeted.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s months-long investigation is under fire from multiple GOP legislators following revelations of widespread anti-Trump bias throughout the Department of Justice. Earlier this month, senior FBI agents were caught exchanging text messages that referred to an “insurance policy” against a possible Trump presidency.
LATE NIGHT LECTURE: Hillary Defends Paying BIG BUCKS for 'Trump Dossier'
Hillary Clinton doubled-down on her campaign’s role behind the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ on Wednesday night, saying she paid big bucks to opposition research firm Fusion GPS because of their valuable “research.”
Hillary was speaking with the Daily Show’s Trevor Noah when he pressed the former presidential nominee over her financing of the debunked report.
“People say, ‘Hillary, is there a difference between your team paying for this opposition research and Donald Trump’s people working with the Russians to influence the election?’ Is there a difference?” asked Noah.
“Of course, there is. Most serious people understand that,” said Clinton. “This was research started by a Republican donor during the Republican primary and then when Trump got the nomination the people doing it came to my campaign lawyer.”
“He’s an experienced lawyer, he knows the law is, he knows what opposition research is. From my perspective, it didn’t come out before the election,” she added.

Trey Gowdy: Democrats are Terrified Trump Dossier is 'Piece of Fiction'
South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy believes liberal lawmakers are terrified the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ will be revealed to be a total “piece of fiction,” questioning democratic motives as they try and stonewall Congress’s investigation into the debunked document.
Gowdy, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, fired-back at democrats after they accused his committee of trying to “discredit” the dossier at the heart of the liberal Russia-Trump conspiracy theory.
“I don’t know why anyone — from [California Rep.] Adam Schiff, to Vanity Fair, to Rachel Maddow — would not be curious whether or not the world’s premier law enforcement agency relied upon a dossier in connection with an investigation without vetting it,” Gowdy told the Daily Caller.
“For the life of me I don’t understand why they are focused on this […] Unless they are fearful that the bureau did rely on a piece of fiction,” he added. “The investigators on [the Intelligence Committee] have been trying for months to obtain documents about the dossier, but when you get no response, then you go from a polite request, to a firm request to a legal request.”
Gowdy’s comments come as Congressional investigators continue to probe the document; demanding information from former British spy Christopher Steele as well as Fusion GPS, the shady opposition research firm behind the dossier.
