Donald Trump: Russia dossier a 'Crooked Hillary pile of garbage'

Trump's tweet might not really be any surprise though, seeing how he's been trashing the FBI, James Comey and Andrew McCabe quite a bit in recent weeks. FBI CANNOT (after all this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. "Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier".

President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE on Tuesday lashed out at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Clinton campaign on the Russia dossier compiled against him and his 2016 campaign.

'And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!' Trump wrote in one of several anti-FBI tweets Saturday.

"The president's tweets are an insurance policy for the American people to make sure that its leading law enforcement organization remains unbiased", Caputo said on CNN's "New Day".

Clinton did help fund research for the dossier.

Republican donor Paul Singer initially hired Fusion GPS through the Washington Free Beacon to conduct opposition research on Trump and other candidates during the 2016 Republican primary, but that research was unrelated to the dossier.

The dossier was compiled by retired British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

Allegations contained within the dossier that former Trump advisor Carter Page met with Russian officials in the months before the 2016 election were subsequently confirmed by Page himself during testimony before the House Intelligence Committee. Trump has repeatedly denied that the dossier has any validity, but some of its claims about Russian election interference have been backed up by subsequent investigations.
