The former British spy who authored the debunked Trump dossier has reportedly agreed to meet with U.S. officials on certain conditions.
“The Times of London” reported Tuesday that Christopher Steele will meet with U.S. officials in the coming weeks to discuss his dealings with the FBI. However, he will only meet with investigators if approved by the British government.
Steele was hired by opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which was paid — in part — by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The FBI then reportedly used the dossier as evidence to seek a FISA warrant to surveil the Trump campaign.
The Department of Justice inspector general is reportedly investigating whether the FBI improperly relied on the dossier to obtain a FISA warrant.
