Remember when law enforcement needed reliable information to investigate someone?
Those days are apparently over after a new report revealed Special Counsel Robert Mueller used information in the bogus Trump-Russia dossier to investigate Paul Manafort.
If all the information in the report is true, Mueller received authorization from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
In the authorization, Rosenstein mentions allegations against Manafort, but does not disclose the sources that made the allegations.
In other words, Rosenstein apparently uses the same “unnamed” sources many of today’s liberal media outlets use in their gossip stories.
Putting 2 and 2 Together
The memo authorizing Mueller to investigate Manafort is dated August 2, 2017.
At the time of that memo, the ONLY public allegation against Manafort was contained in the Christopher Steele dossier.
That dossier, of course, is the now infamous dossier bought and paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.
Inside the Dossier
Steele made some very disparaging charges against Trump as well as many people inside his camp in the dossier.
However, the sources of these allegations were never specifically named.
Point being, this dossier could have been a complete work of fiction as far as we know.
In fact, then-FBI Director James Comey discredited the dossier.
Yet, it was still used as a primary document to move this special investigation forward.
Did Mueller and Rosenstein Break the Law?
The question everyone is now faced with is if Mueller and Rosenstein broke the law.
We know for a fact it is illegal for a foreign agent to be used in gathering information as it relates to a political campaign.
But, what kind of repercussions would a federal investigator face for using unsubstantiated information to issue subpoenas and investigate a public figure?
Lies, Lies, and More Lies
Up to this point, the American people have been repeatedly told the dossier was never the sole or primary document used to start this witch hunt.
That, apparently, was a complete lie based on this new report.
Mr. Mueller, Mr. Rosenstein, you both have a lot of explaining to do.
