GOP senators request criminal investigation of Trump dossier author
Two Republican senators are asking the Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into Christopher Steele, the author of a controversial opposition research dossier on President Trump.
Sens. Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray asking that they investigate if the former British intelligence agent lied to federal authorities.
"I donât take lightly making a referral for criminal investigation. But, as I would with any credible evidence of a crime unearthed in the course of our investigations, I feel obliged to pass that information along to the Justice Department for appropriate review,â Grassley said in a statement....
Fusion GPS, the research firm responsible for the âSteele dossier,â defended itself late Tuesday against what it called âmendacious conspiracy theoriesâ spun by Republicans and President Trump, saying its critics were simply âchasing rabbitsâ to punish it for exposing Trumpâs links to Russia.
The two founders of the firm, Glenn R. Simpson and Peter Fritsch, made their first extensive public comments on the controversy surrounding the company in a [URL=https://tinyurl.com/y9z7objf]]]commentary in the New York Times[/URL] headlined âThe Republicansâ Fake Investigations.â .... In their commentary, Simpson and Fritsch said they did not believe the dossier âwas the trigger for the F.B.I.âs investigation into Russian meddling. As we told the Senate Judiciary Committee in August, our sources said the dossier was taken so seriously because it corroborated reports the bureau had received from other sources, including one inside the Trump camp.â ....

Amen! I can feel one coming on now....
Rejoice in the Lord always And again I say rejoice
....and so on.
Singing is a great way to go through the day. It shows the Lord how grateful we are for all that he has done for us, and how precious he is. It is the greatest privilege on earth to walk with him day by day, and have that sweetness of fellowship, and to hear his voice.
O the deep, deep love of Jesus Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free Rolling as a mighty ocean In its fulness over me Underneath me, all around me, Is the current of thy love Leading onward, leading homeward To thy glorious rest above!
Dalores your complete disregard for the truth, and the romanist bulldust accursed lies John uk spews out here is not angering but sad, we actually pray for you guys, but some of you are above our prayers, in your minds anyway, so continue with your pitiful little digs just like John UK who speaks out both sides of his mouth and enjoy
John Uk, thatâs the most important thing, keeping my eyes on Him and walking with Him everyday. Love that old song as well. I sing old hymns a lot because they keep me rejoicing. So thankful youâre back commenting on here,Penned because I learn the truth about what is actually going on here in America and other places. Keeping us informed, must be your calling. Mine is seeing and sharing Godâs Love with others,which seems to drive some people a little crazy on here. I have not always been this way,as.a matter of fact I had a hard time believing that God could even love me. One night kneeling by my bed, I had an experience with God that changed my life and revealed His love in such a profound way, that even today I still marvel that He could love me so much that He died that I might live.Of course, someday we will give account for any rejection of that great love by refusing to accept Christ as their Savior.
David Brooks brings up a point that I for one often forget about. I think Donald Trump is the only President in recent times has not made public his income statements I would hope he would do this in the near future so speculation like the following can be put to rest.
David Brooks wrote: Trump doesnât seem to understand that. He doesnât understand the history. To me, itâs a mistake, though, to think, because heâs covering up, there was an underlining crime vis-a-vis Russia. Thatâs imposing a linearity on Donald Trumpâs mind that doesnât always exist.
And he could just not be â he just could be upset that theyâre sort of diminishing his victory. And if anything we have learned over the past couple of weeks, there may be more to do with money laundering, some of the charges about Deutsche Bank that have been floating around as well, than maybe the Russia story.
And in the past, he certainly said, donât look at my tax returns, which is a signal that the thing heâs really worried about, if there is anything, is less Russia and more some of the financial shenanigans.

"Pacepa stated that over his 66 years that he has been connected with the intelligence business with 27 in the Soviet bloc and 39 in the U.S., he has learned that changing minds by manipulating the media is what Russian Marxism has always been all about."
Has anyone told these cultural marxist pulpits and "Christian teachers" who shiver and cry with every false accusation, causing mental dishealth among their congregations....that its all just a propoganda campaign? would they know a false flag when they saw it or be complicit gatekeepers in projecting the lies?

Steele, a former British intelligence officer, rocketed into the political spotlight in early 2017 after the Wall Street Journal reported that he was the author of the Trump dossier.
The FBI reportedly agreed to pay Steele to continue investigating Trump's ties to Moscow after the U.S. intelligence community concluded that the Kremlin had run an influence campaign to sway the presidential election in Trump's favor.
But those payments never materialized after Steele's identity was compromised.
The dossier has become a flashpoint in the Russia investigations, with Republicans questioning whether the document was the starting point for the FBI's investigation of the Trump campaign.
Some of the allegations in the dossier have been shown to be false, while others have either been supported by public evidence or remain unproven
"standard for the committee to notify the Justice Department when it "comes across what appears to be credible evidence of a criminal violation that warrants further investigation by appropriate authorities"
No wonder there is so much lying, misrepresenting, subterfuge. Our poor American brethren and sisters live with it every day of the week and have inbibed some. In fact some have imbibed a lot. Where a lot means a lot.
The answer, of course, is Jesus Christ. Looking to him (and only him) with the eye, will result in knowing him inwardly, powerfully, revelatory and revolutionary.
