WSJ Calls for End to Trump Dossier Nonsense

By the time you finish reading this reporting on the latest issues with the Trump dossier, you may become convinced that there was some collusion. The collusion is not what the dossier attempts to report. The collusion that exists seems to be between the DNC, the Clinton Campaign, and the FBI. You can also add to that, the mainstream media who carried the water for all three. That may explain where the WSJ is coming for in trying to call off the entire game. 

As Written and Reported By Tyler Durden for Zero Hedge:

There’s no such thing as a coincidence in Washington, so why the sudden, furious effort by Democrats and the media to give cover to the Steele dossier? As in, the sudden, furious effort that happens to coincide with congressional investigators’ finally being given access to FBI records about the Trump-Russia probe.

This scandal’s pivotal day was Jan. 3. That’s the deadline House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes gave the Federal Bureau of Investigation to turn over documents it had been holding for months.

Oh, and it appears to continue to be almost entirely false. When the best you’ve got is that a campaign orbiter made a public trip to Russia, you haven’t got much.

But with Congress about to obtain documents that show the dossier did matter, it was time for a new line. And so the day before the Nunes deadline, Fusion co-founders Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch broke their public silence to explain in a New York Times op-ed that what really matters was their noble intention – to highlight Donald Trump’s misdeeds. The duo took credit for alerting the “national security community” to a Russian “attack.”

Meanwhile, Dianne Feinstein, ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, decided it was suddenly a matter of urgency that the …..
