President Trump weighed-in on the Inspector General’s Russia Report from the White House Monday; calling recent revelations proof of an “attempted overthrow” of government.
“They fabricated evidence, they lied to the courts. They did all sorts of things to have it go their way. The report is far worse than anything I would have even imagined… What they were doing and what they would have done,” said the President.
“They might have been able to succeed. This was an overthrow of government, this was an attempted overthrow, and they got caught,” he added.

BOMBSHELL REPORT: Steele Admitted ‘Trump Dossier’ Intended to ‘Air Dirt’ on Trump Before Election Day
The latest explosive report from John Solomon is shedding new light on the shady background of the now-debunked ‘Trump Dossier,’ with documents revealing Christopher Steele was given until Election Day to “air dirt” on Donald Trump.
“Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec’s written account of her Oct. 11, 2016, meeting with FBI informant Christopher Steele shows the Hillary Clinton campaign-funded British intelligence operative admitted that his research was political and facing an Election Day deadline,” writes The Hill’s John Solomon.
“And that confession occurred 10 days before the FBI used Steele’s now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s ties to Russia,” he adds.

JOHN SOLOMON: IG Report Shows Compelling Evidence FBI Misled FISA Court in Russia Probe
The latest report from John Solomon is shedding new light on the Department of Justice’s Russia investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign; confirming the evidence shows the FBI misled the FISA courts to surveil top associates.
“The Justice Department inspector general’s report into the Russia collusion investigation lays out incontrovertible evidence that the FBI misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court through false information and omissions, according to sources familiar with its findings,” writes Solomon.
“The evidence that the judges were misled is so sweeping that it could provide grounds, if Attorney General William Barr chooses, to withdraw the FBI’s application for the surveillance warrants that began in October 2016 to target ex-Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, the sources added,” he adds.
“Such a move, while mostly legally symbolic since the probe is long since closed, would still amount to a resounding rebuke to an FBI probe that the bureau, Democrats and their media allies relentlessly defended,” concludes Solomon.
