CNN’s Sciutto Falsely Reports Republicans Originally Funded Steele Dossier

‘This dossier of information about President Trump compiled by a former British agent initially paid for by Republicans and then by the Democratic National Committee’

EXCERPT:

SCIUTTO: “There is a lot to digest here. Let’s focus on what’s new in it. One headline is that this warrant to surveil Carter Page, an adviser to president Trump during the campaign was issued and then renewed three times. I’ll add some context to that in a moment. But keep in mind we did not know that. Let’s get to the allegations here. One allegation, the principal one, really, is that the now former director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, told the House Intelligence Committee that that initial warrant would not have been issued without the Steele dossier, this dossier of information about President Trump compiled by a former British agent initially paid for by Republicans and then by the Democratic National Committee."
