Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan shut down some fake news about the Trump-Russia dossier during a Friday interview with CNN.
CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota incorrectly claimed that the entirety of the dossier has been corroborated by intelligence agencies, even though the vast majority of the dossier remains unsubstantiated. (RELATED: What’s True, False And In-Between In The Trump Dossier?)
Jordan described the dossier as “discredited” and slammed the FBI for using it to obtain FISA warrants against members of the Trump campaign team, causing Camerota to claim that the dossier had been fully verified.
“It hasn’t been discredited. In fact, it’s been the opposite,” Camerota said. “It’s been corroborated.”
“Really?” Jordan said with some sarcasm. “All of it?”
“Yes, ask your intel community,” Camerota snarked back. “Your intel community has corroborated all of the details.”
“They have corroborate the contacts made between the high-level Trump team and Russians, conversations made between the Trump team and Russians, the face-to-face meetings between the Trump team and the Russians,” she continued.
However, then Camerota quickly debunked her own claim that the entire dossier had been corroborated.
“The only part that you’re fastening on is the most salacious stuff which we haven’t reported on!” she exclaimed, admitting that there were significant parts of the dossier that remain unverified.
Jordan laughed his way through Camerota’s inability to separate fact from fiction and quickly turned back to his original point, which is that the highly-suspect dossier was paid for by Democrats and then turned over to the FBI.
