President Trump slams the FBI over its use of the infamous “dossier” as a part of its Russia probe.
On Twitter Tuesday morning, the president referenced a report from The Washington Times that claims the FBI could not verify the claims made in the dossier, but used it any way as part of its investigation into alleged Russian meddling.
WOW, @foxandfrlends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.” And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!

The president called the dossier a “crooked Hillary pile of garbage.”
The dossier was a collection of unverified claims about alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.
It was recently revealed the Clinton campaign and DNC funded some of research behind it creation.
Meanwhile, President Trump’s legal team makes a prediction on the Special Counsel’s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
In an interview Monday, the president’s attorney Jay Sekulow said the Special Counsel’s probe is coming to an end.
However, no specific dates were given.
This comes after President Trump confirmed he is not planning on firing Robert Mueller.
Despite Sekulow’s prediction, experts said the probe is not likely to wrap-up anytime soon.
A representative for the Special Counsel’s team declined to comment on the interview.
