Trey Gowdy made a sensational statement by saying that FBI used information from Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal to corroborate Steele dossier.
“I have seen each factual assertion listed in that dossier, and then I’ve seen the FBI’s justification. And when you’re citing newspaper articles as corroboration for a factual assertion that you have made, you don’t need an FBI agent to go do a Google search,” said Gowdy in a Fox News interview.
“And when the name Sidney Blumenthal is included as part of your corroboration, and you’re the world’s leading law enforcement agency, you have a problem,” Gowdy stated.
Funny thing is, back in 2018, Trey Gowdy already hinted that Blumenthal is behind the creation of the dossier.
“When you hear who the source or one of the sources of that information is, you’re going to think, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve heard that name somewhere before. Where could it possibly have been?'” Gowdy said in February 2018.
Sidney Blumenthal closely worked with Clinton Foundation and was a close and informal advisor to Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State. Interestingly enough, Blumenthal is a controversial figure. He helped out with a “secret spy network” to give Clinton information on Libya.
He was responsible for giving another dossier containing some of the same salacious content on then-candidate Trump to a State Department official.
