The FBI repeatedly ignored information that weakened its case against Carter Page. That’s the finding of the Inspector General for the Department of Justice. At one point the FBI suppressed evidence that should have closed the case and stopped all the spying. That’s the focus of Episode #7.
The government's whole case against Carter Page and Team Trump rated on the Steele Dossier. So, in early October of 2016 a team from the FBI and the Department of Justice flew to London to interview Steele, a former British spy. Steele told them he couldn't corroborate anything in the dossier. He said he relied on a primary source who had a network of sub-sources. When the FBI asked who the primary source was, Steele refused to reveal the person's identity. But the FBI figured it out and interviewed the main source in January 2017.
During 3 days of interviews at the FBI's Washington field office, the primary source, Igor Danchenko, told the FBI that the dossier was just hearsay, misstatements and exaggerations. The source told the FBI that he couldn't corroborate anything in the dossier.
President Trump was sworn into office on January 20th, 2017. Danchenko was interviewed on January 24, 25 and 26th. So, at the end of President Trump's first week in office, the FBI knew its case had crumbled. Did they tell the FISA Court? Did they stop the spying? No.
One of the most important resources to understanding "Spygate" is a report by the Department of Justice Inspector General. It was issued in December, 2019. SpyGate Truth repeatedly refers to it, citing page numbers for the source information we report. You can look for yourself. Here's a link to the full report. Be advised, however, it's 474 pages long and does not read like a spy novel.
