@CBSNews obtains 94-page declassified FBI spreadsheet, widely cited by IG Horowitz, but not public until now. Recently released to Senate investigators, the FBI spreadsheet was part of a broader effort to corroborate the Steele dossier claims.
While lightly redacted, the bureau spreadsheet shows the FBI relied heavily on media reporting to back up claims about Carter Page, Paul Manafort, and others. IG Horowitz faulted the FBI over lack of corroboration + evidence of circular reporting.
reporting in the @carterwpage FISA + then not correcting the court record once the connection with Steele was known. Tim Gill Sr, a former senior FBI intelligence officer, told CBS that the reliance on media reporting was not standard. Any effort to corroborate a report
should include a variety of intelligence sources, including imagery intelligence, human intelligence, signals intelligence as well as clandestine intelligence collection platforms for verification," Gill said. You don't rely on media reporting.
NATSEC threat + Russian agent. Notes, no confirmation that Trump stayed here. There is no 'Presidential Suite' currently listed on Ritz Carlton website.

I thought the current line was that the public doesn’t care about the Russia investigation anymore. Somebody on the left is getting worried if they are organizing a hit on Horowitz.
Using media reports they often planted.
” relied heavily on media reporting”
And I should have respect for these idiots?
He should hire bodyguards!
Exactly. obvious to anyone paying attention.
One lies,the other swears to it.
So the evidence collected by the Faux Bureau of Investigation was MSM unsourced reporting. How professional of the Faux Bureau of Investigation.
Transfer their cases & field agents to the US Marshals, then dissolve the FBI.
The left leans on media reports for everything. Do the words losers and suckers sound familiar? Media report. Trump’s taxes? media report. They probably would use a movie script.
“the FBI relied heavily on media reporting”
think about it. Presidents come and go. FakeNewsMSM hacks remain in place for decades.
finally, the administration is leaking to it’s benefit.
Claims that the FBI leaked to the media so they would report it and then they could rely on it ...
That much has been a proven fact for some time.
Not ‘unsourced’ but ‘anonymous sources’ e.g. Hillary’s team, Steele’s team, and FBI insiders leaked the info from the Hoax dossier to news outlets. Then the FBI used the reporting as ‘corroboration’ with a wink and a nod. They knew this was not proper protocol. And they didn’t even have ‘Wow! The NYT and WP has the same info we have maybe there is a leak’ investigation? But they were already actively involved in election rigging and then sedition against the elected POTUS as insurance policy in case the election rigging failed, so what’s a few breaches of protocol against all that?
