Progressives should not be cheerleaders for the FBI when it shaves the truth, even if the bureau is now portrayed as Donald Trump's enemy. This is, after all, the FBI infamous for the wiretap of Martin Luther King Jr., the broader COINTELPRO operation, and, recently, smearing ...more
By Greg Palast with Dennis J. Bernstein
When the FBI applied to the rubber-stamp FISA court for a warrant to surveil Trump associate Carter Page they were more than a little economical with the truth. Basing their warrant request, in part, on information contained in the now-infamous Fusion GPS dossier, they omitted to mention that …more
The FBI should have disclosed to the court that the Steele dossier was originally paid for by Paul "The Vulture" Singer â€” who has a record of creating what James Comey himself calls "salacious and unverifiable" files on his enemies. I know, Singer created a dossier on me.
