President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was "tainted" and used a "bogus" dossier to investigate his alleged links to Russia's supposed interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. "FBI TAINTED.' And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!", Trump tweeted.

While it was unclear which particular discussion Trump was attempting to quote, "Fox and Friends" hosts did discuss the Steele dossier on Tuesday morning. But this time, Trump accidentally tweeted at an unrelated account that simply promotes the Fox News show.

President Trump slams the Federal Bureau of Investigation over its use of the infamous "dossier" as a part of its Russian Federation probe.

In May, the president fired FBI Director James Comey, who was investigating alleged connections between Russian Federation and the 2016 Trump campaign. Trump wrote in one of several anti-FBI tweets Saturday.

After the news of Baker's reassignment, Politico reported that Baker had communicated with a Mother Jones reporter just prior to last year's election.

Clinton did help fund research for the dossier. Perez has close ties to the cofounders of Fusion GPS, the firm behind the dossier, which CNN failed to disclose. Former MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, who worked as a spy in Moscow for 20 years, was unmasked as its author.

Compiled for his Republican and Democrat opponents, the dossier also claimed Trump had been compromised by Russia's FSB spy agency when he was secretly filmed with prostitutes at a hotel in Moscow.
