This is huge. James Comey sent an email to James Clapper informing him that the FBI could not verify the Steele Dossier.
Then, afterward, he signed a FISA application in which he had to swear that the information had been verified. That is illegal and the fact that he knew the document could not be verified means that this was an intentional act of subterfuge on Comey’s part.
The CIA had already told Comey that Carter Page had been a long-time operative for them, which meant he was not a spy for the Russians, rather he was an informant against them.
That is the document that Kevin Clinesmith forged and a crooked judge allowed him to walk free even though he confessed. And guess what else? The bar association did not disbar him for forging the document. Lucky for him he isn’t a Republican, he would have gotten life.
The FBI had received warnings that Steele was not credible and that he hated Trump. The FBI was also informed that the Hillary campaign put forth the Russian collusion hoax in order to direct attention away from her email server scandal.
Despite having all of this evidence, James Comey plotted and tried to carry out a coup against a duly elected president. Comey even wrote a book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.
Well, Comey is an expert on lies but the truth is he had no loyalty to his job and his leadership in passing on lies is now well documented. But, don’t expect John Durham to indict Comey or anyone else for that matter.
I am convinced that he is in cover-up mode and another previously good man sold his soul to the devil.
His entire investigation was a farce and Bill Barr was part of it in my opinion. I hope they prove me wrong.

It was in that environment in the final days of the Obama administration that Clapper had written Comey earlier on Jan. 12, 2017 to inform the FBI that Clapper had decided to release a public statement declaring that the Steele dossier was only mentioned in an appendix to the intel community’s report because the “IC has not made any judgment that the information in the document is reliable.”
Comey tried to push back, suggesting Steele was deemed reliable (he actually had been terminated by the FBI for leaking by that time) and that his network included sources that might be in a position to know things (although the key source had already disavowed the information attributed to him in the dossier).
“I just had a chance to review the proposed talking points on this for today,” Comey wrote Clapper. “Perhaps it is a nit, but I worry that it may not be best to say ‘the IC has not made any judgment that the information in the document is reliable.’ I say that because we HAVE concluded that the source is reliable and has a track record with us of reporting reliable information; we have some visibility into his source network, some of which we have determined to be sub-sources in a position to report on such things; and much of what he reports in the current document is consistent with and corroborative of other reporting included in the body of the main IC report.
