One of the FBI’s big selling points for the Democratic Party-financed dossier is that its creator, Christopher Steele, had proven his veracity in previously providing information on a FIFA soccer scandal.

That is what the FBI told a judge to obtain a year’s worth of wiretaps on Trump associate Carter Page.

It turned out it wasn’t true, according to the Justice Department’s inspector general report.

Hardly any of Mr. Steele’s soccer information was corroborated. And none was used in court, contrary to what was attested to by FBI in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) application.

Oh my! Russiagate was based on false predicate.
