    oh the Rats are turning on each other LOL
    A high-level dispute over which senior government officials pushed the unverified Steele dossier amid efforts to surveil the Trump campaign has broken out into the open again, after it emerged that Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if the FBI and DOJ's actions were "lawful and appropriate."
    Sources familiar with the records told Fox News that a late-2016 email chain indicated then-FBI Director James Comey told bureau subordinates that then-CIA Director John Brennan insisted the dossier be included in the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference, known as the ICA.
    But in a statement to Fox News, a former CIA official put the blame squarely on Comey.
    "Former Director Brennan, along with former [Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper,
    are the ones who opposed James Comey’s recommendation that the Steele Dossier be included in the intelligence report," the official said.

    In March, Republican Sen. Rand Paul leveled similar allegations on Twitter, citing a "high-level source" who said Brennan had "insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier" be included in the January 2017 ICA.
