Did the Obama DOJ use the Steele dossier to get the FISA warrant?

By: J. Marsolo
January 12, 2018

Sara Carter reports that the Obama Justice Department obtained a FISA warrant to search or monitor the activities of persons involved in the Trump campaign based on the opposition research, known as the dossier, paid by Hillary and the DNC.  The dossier has been challenged as unverified and unreliable.  It is not clear to what extent the dossier was used.

This raises the important issue of whether the Obama DOJ application for the warrant met the standards of probable cause under the Fourth Amendment to our Constitution.  In Aguilar v. Texas, 378 U.S. 108 (1964), the Court stated that the standard to apply when the facts necessary for probable cause are based on an informant and not the direct knowledge of the officer swearing the affidavit for probable cause is as follows:

Although an affidavit supporting a search warrant may be based on hearsay information and need not reflect the direct personal observations of the affiant, the magistrate must be informed of some of the underlying circumstances relied on by the person providing the information and some of the underlying circumstances from which the affiant concluded that the informant, whose identity was not disclosed, was creditable or his information reliable.

The FISA application has to be approved by the attorney general, which at the time meant Loretta Lynch.  Probable cause is required if the target is a U.S. person.

If the dossier was used to any degree to obtain the FISA warrant, then the Obama DOJ and FBI relied on the information supplied by an "informant" – in this case, Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS – responsible for the dossier.  The Obama official who signed the application did not have personal knowledge of the facts.  He made the application based on the allegations in the dossier, therefore the application had to establish the reliability of Steele and Fusion GPS, who compiled the dossier.

The Obama DOJ should have disclosed to the FISA court that the dossier was prepared by an ex-British spy; the amount he received to compile the dossier; and, most important, who paid the money.  The Court should have been informed of the reliability of Fusion GPS and the amount paid to Fusion.  The Court should have been informed that Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid Fusion for the dossier through a law firm.

The FISA court would have had to evaluate why the Obama DOJ is using information paid for by Hillary Clinton to spy on the Trump campaignClinton paid the Perkins Coie law firm $12.4 million.  Perkins then paid Fusion GPS, which paid Steele.  The Court should have been informed of this to evaluate the credibility of Fusion, Steele, and the Russian informants.

As more and more evidence is slowly coming to light, the real story is going to be the that Obama illegally coordinated the largest political scandal in American history.  He illegally used the Federal Law Enforcement and Intelligence Agencies ( as well as Bureaucrats in other agencies) to interfere with the free and fair elections.  The Steele Dossier was fabricated to give the appearance of legitimacy for Obama's spying on an opponent's political campaign and then undermining the lawful governing of the county by the duly elected President.

The Libs are going to laugh, ridicule and mock this comment.  This wont stop the truth from being revealed in due course. The real collusion story is one of a criminal enterprise with our former President of the United States, as well as Bill and Hillary CLinton and George Soros, right at the center!

Are we allowed to quote you when the indictments of Obama officials begin and the Rats start squeaking on what the President knew and when he knew it?   Roll Eyes

This concerns me.  You're not talking about people who perform because of love of country, patriots.  You're talking about people who are akin to ISIS, al-Q, IRA, and the rest.  Leftists are not for keeping this republic alive, they are only for their religious ideology, creating a one party rule.

TL was challenging me on the strength of my words, but what he fails to see during his attempts to appear centrist, is that I'm for saving this country from the leftists in liberal/Dem clothing.  They should all be treated as the treasonous scum they are.

All information that we have so far points to it being used.

So, .. then this begs a question:

Is Greggy lying, or perhaps he is just mistaken?
