    I might be splitting hairs, but I think the most glaring, most unforgivable and irreparable failure of the DoJ and FBI is their failure to corroborate anything in the Steele dossier, other than the fact that Carter Page traveled to Moscow and did nothing to justify a FISA warrant.  Corroboration was entirely up to the FBI – they can’t pass that responsibility off on any other party, not even an historically reliable Matt Helm-wannabe like Christopher Steele.  Andrew McCabe testified that without the Steele dossier they wouldn’t have even sought a FISA warrant.*  But since the only corroborated fact in the Steele dossier doesn’t justify a FISA warrant, the FBI had to know when they applied that there was no justification for a FISA warrant anywhere in their application.

    * Trey Gowdy claims that the Steele dossier wasn’t the sole justification for the FISA warrant, but given McCabe’s testimony, I can’t imagine what else could have been used to justify a FISA warrant on Carter Page.

    James Comey on July 5th 2016 explained that Hillary Clinton knew or should have known that she was handling classified material on her illegal e-mail server.  Similarly, the FBI knew or should have known on October 16, 2016 that it had zero justification to violate Carter Page’s 4th Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure.

    I think that the above analysis is completely separate from the issue of political bias both in the author of the Steele dossier and in the FBI and DoJ officials who applied for the FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page, an American citizen.
