FBI Witnesses Said Comey’s Trump Briefing Was Meant To Collect Info For Russia Probe, Report Says

August 29, 2019

An inspector general’s report released Thursday says that witnesses told Justice Department investigators that FBI officials wanted to use a briefing that James Comey provided President Donald Trump in early 2017 about sex allegations made in the Steele dossier to collect information that might be of use in the Russia probe.

 

The witness statements, which are laid out in a scathing 83-page report on Comey, would seem to undercut the former FBI director’s claims about the purpose of the briefing, which was held at Trump Tower on Jan. 6, 2017.

 

Comey has long asserted that he had a one-on-one meeting with Trump in order to give the then-president-elect a heads up about salacious rumors contained in the dossier, which former British spy Christopher Steele compiled while on the payroll of the DNC and Clinton campaign.
