Comey admitted he couldn't verify Steele on the same day he signed FISA

Just The NewsThe very day in January 2017 that then-FBI Director James Comey signed a FISA surveillance warrant application declaring content from Christopher Steele's dossier had been "verified," he wrote President Obama's outgoing intelligence community chief with a very different assessment of the British spy's intelligence on Russia collusion, a newly released memo shows.

"We are not able to sufficiently corroborate the reporting," Comey wrote in a Jan. 12, 2017 email to then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper that was declassified and made public through an open records lawsuit by the Southeastern Legal Foundation.

John Solomon at Just The News terms this a smoking gun, and he's right. It is. It should be enough to put Comey in jail for misleading the FISC. But it won't, because the cover-up lasted just long enough -- which is to say. about two weeks longer than Donald Trump lasted.
