I don’t think the Republicans are going to like the outcome.

Federal lawyers probing the origins of the investigation of ties between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign have interviewed the author of a “dossier” that alleged misconduct between Trump and Moscow, prompting the lawyers to extend their inquiry.

Three attorneys from the Inspector General’s office of the U.S. Department of Justice met in person in early June with dossier author Christopher Steele in Britain, said two sources with direct knowledge of the lawyers’ travels.

The interview with Steele, a former top spy on Russia for Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, or MI6, took place while Trump was in London for a formal state visit with Queen Elizabeth and a meeting with UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

The Justice Department’s inspector general has been examining the earliest stages of an FBI investigation of Trump, his former 2016 presidential campaign rival Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Russia and former Trump adviser Carter Page.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz, whose office is an internal Justice Department watchdog, launched his probe in March 2018 amid allegations by Republican lawmakers that the FBI erred in seeking a warrant to monitor Page.

Now this entire probe is of course supposed to undermine the reasons behind the launch of the Russia investigation and thereby also undermine the Special Counsel investigation. 

The Republicans are convinced that they can use this to chip away at Robert Mueller’s credibility and dismiss his findings by suggesting that his entire investigation was based on a lie.

Attorney General Bill Barr claimed that this investigation would likely wrap up by May or June, well before Mueller was called before Congress to testify, however, things did not work out that way.

And here’s why:

One of the two sources said Horowitz’s investigators appear to have found Steele’s information sufficiently credible to have to extend the investigation. Its completion date is now unclear.

In other words, the investigation that the Republicans were convinced would knock the legs out from under the Russian probe and damage the credibility of the Mueller report, may, in fact, add more damaging facts which suggest that Donald Trump was compromised or engaged in illegal activities with foreign nationals. 

No wonder Republicans hate facts. They so rarely work out in their favor.

    So why haven’t they concluded their investigation, still trying hard to twist the facts or trying to figure out how to cover up the results?

    Well the UK is definitely not going to get a rose from this administration. With the Brexit breakup coming in a couple of months they will have to do a lot of dancing to the trump administration tune.

    This is all about the ignorant taking the Bible as literal. This literalism will be the death of us all unless they are shown how to read texts like the bible: all are true, none are literal.

    Do you wake up every day and forget that Trump is winning and is going to serve two terms?

      Keep drinking your vodka, boris

      Winning yes, for the most criminal, mentally ill occupant of the WH, if you call that winning.

      Two terms, I don’t think so, I think he will serve life in prison. He is counting on putin having airplane one ready to whisk him off to Siberia

      Man is losing – to nature.

      Precisely because man believes he is separate from other men and from nature. The arrogance and ignorance.

      Nature wins.
