Matt Gaetz Rejects Mueller’s Claim That Steele Dossier Was Beyond Investigation’s Scope

Matt Gaetz Rejects Mueller’s Claim That Steele Dossier Was Beyond Investigation’s ScopeFlorida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz did not accept former special counsel Robert Mueller’s evasion of a question regarding the Steele dossier during Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee.“Director Mueller, can you state with confidence that the Steele dossier was not part of Russia’s disinformation campaign?” Gaetz asked.“No … that part of the building of the case predated me by at least 10 months,” Mueller responded.“Yeah, and Paul Manafort’s alleged crimes regarding tax evasion predated you. You had no trouble charging them. As a matter of fact, the Steele dossier predated [Attorney General William Barr], and he didn’t have any problem answering the question when Sen. Cornyn asked the attorney general the exact question I asked you, director,” Gaetz responded.The Florida representative continued:> You identify no factual basis regarding the dossier or the possibility that [the dossier] was part of the Russia disinformation campaign. Christopher Steele’s reporting is referenced in your report. Steele reported to the FBI that senior Russian foreign ministry figures … told him that there was … ‘extensive evidence of conspiracy between the Trump campaign team and The Kremlin.’ Here’s my question: Did Russians really tell that to Christopher Steele? Or did he just make it all up and was he lying to the FBI?“As I said earlier, with regard to the Steele [dossier], that is beyond my purview,” Mueller responded.
