Two former top FBI officials whom Democrats brought in as congressional witnesses for a hearing Wednesday on counterintelligence lessons to be learned from the Mueller report both admitted they’d never read the Steele dossier.
The two also testified that they had never heard of political opposition research being used in an FBI counterintelligence investigation prior to the Steele dossier.
Both left the FBI prior to the Trump-Russia investigation.
The article goes on to state the following:
Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, asked the three witnesses present if they were familiar with the dossier.
Stephanie Douglas, a former executive assistant director of the FBI’s National Security Branch, said, “I’ve never read the Steele dossier.”
“I’ve not read it either, sir,” said Robert Anderson, also a former executive assistant director of the FBI’s National Security Branch.
The Washington Examiner also provided the following details:
Stewart pressed the former government officials on whether it was typical for this sort of potentially politically motivated information to find its way into an FBI probe.
“Has the FBI ever used political opposition research funded by a U.S. political campaign — and including information for foreign agents — in a counterintelligence investigation? Are you aware of that ever happening before?” he asked.
The two former FBI officials said they’d never heard of something like that happening before the Steele dossier.
