"On Oct. 21, 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice presented a vile, deceitful dossier to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (fisa) court. The 35-page report was compiled by British former MI-6 intelligence agent Christopher Steele and paid for by Hillary Clintonâ€™s presidential campaign. It was to be used as opposition research, to smear and slander her political opponent. The dossier accused Donald Trump of escapades with Russian prostitutes, among other things. Not one bit of the dossier was verified, yet United States law enforcement agencies used it to obtain approval to spy on Trump campaign staff member Carter Page. That opened the door for spying on everyone surrounding Mr. Trump."
