A leaked story from the FISA memo claims that Christopher Steele, the author of the fake Trump dossier, lied to the FBI about sharing the Trump dossier and the FISA APP with the media.
That is now the stated reason that Senator Lindsay Graham and Sen Chuck Grassley referred Steele to the DOJ for prosecution. Steele may have been part of a conspiracy to help Hillary Clinton defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
Such a conspiracy could include Andrew McCabe, fired Deputy Director of the FBI, James Comey fired Director of the FBI, Rod Rosenstein Deputy AG, Peter Strzok, FBI, and Lisa Page of the FBI and possibly many more.
BREAKING: FISA abuse memo alleges Steele lied to FBI affiants who swore out affidavit for FISA warrant on Page, telling them he hadn’t shared dossier info included in the application with media. This is why Grassley made crim referral on Steele for making false statements to FBI.

Paul Sperry is a reporter for the New York Post who has broken some major stories on the FISA abuse memo. That memo spurred FBI Director Christopher Wray to confront his deputy, Andrew McCabe, who is under a DOJ investigation into FISA abuse, that culminated in McCabe’s resignation. Whistleblowers inside the FBI say that they expect many more resignations in the near future of McCabe croonies.
As previously reported, in what was the second major “leak,” to come from the FISA abuse memo, a new report revealed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein signed off on an application to extend surveillance of Trump campaign official Carter Page.
Page, a former investment banker, was a foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign.
Rosenstein assumed office on April 26th, 2017, approving the spy warrant merely three months after Trump was inaugurated on January 20th, 2017.
Last week, the Daily Beast reported former FBI Director James Comey, bureau Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are officially named in the “shocking” FISA abuse memo.
The first criminal referral in the scandal was lodged by senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsay Graham against fake Trump dossier author, Christopher Steele , who lied to the FBI after he was less than honest in his interactions with the press.
