Kris Kobach claims that MILLIONS of aliens voted in the last election.

The FBI should have disclosed to the court that the Steele dossier was originally paid for by Paul "The Vulture" Singer — who has a record of creating what James Comey himself calls "salacious and unverifiable" files on his enemies.
