Declassified Spreadsheet Shows FBI Relied Heavily on Media Reports to Support Steele's Claims


Recently declassified FBI spreadsheets showed that the agency relied heavily on media reports to back up allegations of Trump campaign-Russian collusion made in British ex-spy-for-hire Christopher Steele’s dossier.

Herridge tweeted late Monday, “the FBI spreadsheet was part of a broader effort to corroborate the Steele dossier claims.”

She added: “While lightly redacted, the bureau spreadsheet shows the FBI relied heavily on media reporting to back up claims about Carter Page, Paul Manafort, and others.”
