Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, threw heavy criticism at the discredited dossier reported by BuzzFeed in January at a Judiciary hearing Wednesday.
“Since [its publishing], much of the dossier has been proven wrong and many of its outlanish claims have failed to gain traction,” Grassley said.
“Yet some continue to quote parts of this document as if it were gospel truth, and according to press reports, the FBI has relied on the document to justify its current investigation,” Grassley added.
Grassley also cited reports that the money had been exchanged for information, discrediting the intelligence that was gathered in that manner.
“The man who wrote the dossier admitted in court that it has unverified claims,” Grassley said.
“Does that sound like a reliable basis for law enforcement or intelligence actions?” Grassley asked, casting doubt on the idea.
