Trusted FBI source and Russian oligarch denied Russian collusion with Trump
I'm betting they didn't disclose that to the court, meaning a lie by omission. Even if a Russian denial (admittedly a Russian they apparently trust enough to work with to the tune of $25 million, which presents its own ethical and legal issues for Mueller) would not sink such an application, it is a factor that should be weighed by the court, especially with so much weight being placed on Steele's single-source credibility.
Mueller is now vulnerable to a conflict of interest charge in his role as special counsel because of his involvement with Deripaska.
