Thursday on his syndicated radio program, Mark Levin reviews the facts about reports that the Steele Dossier was used by the Obama administration to gain approval for a FISA court warrant to surveil Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Circa News reporter Sara Carter reported this week that the dossier “certainly played a role in obtaining the warrant” that was used to spy on members of Trump’s campaign.
MARK LEVIN: This is a massive scandal, the likes of which we’ve not seen.
The bastardization of our intelligence agencies and federal law enforcement by a sitting Democrat administration aimed at destroying and defeating a Republican nominee — the opposition party.
And after the election, his transition. This is a big deal. This is the sort of things that happen in s***hole countries.
Representatives of four committees… the House Intel Committee, the Senate Intel Committee, the House Judiciary Committee, the Senate Judiciary Committee have been able to review documents in a secure room at the Justice Dept. according to the Washington Examiner’s Byron York.

Our old buddy Fox News’s Sean Hannity corroborated the news on his show that night, saying that three separate sources told him the same thing. This dossier, a 35-page hit piece of opposition research was put together by former British spy Christopher Steele for the liberal opposition research group Fusion GPS, which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee.
According to Carter, the sources suggest there will be more information in the coming weeks regarding systemic FISA abuse.
‘(The dossier) certainly played a role in obtaining the warrant,’ added another senior U.S. official, with knowledge of the dossier. ‘Congress needs to look at the FBI officials who were handling this case and see what, if anything, was verified in the dossier.’
The law enforcement source said the broader question is why did the FBI use a Democrat-paid-for dossier to actually surveil another campaign.
To show you how utterly and thoroughly corrupt the media is, most of the media are ignoring this. Most of the media are ignoring this. This is such a massive scandal, we can not live in a free society when administrations of one party are surveilling candidates of another party, or transitions of another party. …read more
