Peter Strzok Document Suggests New York Times Report on Russia Collusion Was False

• https://www.breitbart.com, JOEL B. POLLAK

The document includes Strzok's digital annotations on a Times article, "Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence," which claimed that former and current U.S. "officials" had alleged that "members of Donald J. Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials."

Strzok added a note in the margins: "This statement is misleading and inaccurate as written. We have not seen evidence of any individuals affiliated with the Turmp campaign in contact with IOs [intelligence officials.]" Strzok also made several other notes throughout the article disputing every significant factual claim in the article.

The Times report reinforced public impressions that there had, in fact, been "Russia collusion," and appeared the day after National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had been forced to resign over claims he lied about his conversations with Russian officials.

Another document released was an FBI memorandum about an interview with the "primary sub-source" for the so-called "dossier" compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, working for the Fusion GPS opposition research firm, which had been paid by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to dig up Russian dirt on Trump.

The memorandum indicates that the sub-source disputed much of the information presented in the Steele "dossier."
