Report: FBI’s use of Trump dossier In court order request boosts its credibility

The controversial dossier on Donald Trump appears to have gotten a boost in credibility by the FBI.

CNN is reporting, based on inside officials, that last year, the agency was able to corroborate at least some of the claims which were then used to help justify a court request to monitor former Trump associate Carter Page.

While the news outlet notes that the amount or content of the verified dossier material is unknown, FBI Director James Comey is said to have referenced at least some of the information during recent briefings with lawmakers.
