'You can't make this stuff up! The FBI is purely political now.' ...

Republicans have slammed the FBI after an analyst claimed the Bureau offered retired British spy Christopher Steele $1 million in cash to prove the salacious allegations in his infamous 'Dirty Dossier' on former president Donald Trump.

FBI supervisory analyst Brian Auten testified that the bureau made the offer in 2016 during a meeting in the United Kingdom - but didn't hand over the money because Steele couldn't back up the evidence.

The 35-page file penned by Steele claimed the Kremlin had compromising evidence against Trump - including videos of him involved in sexual activities in a Moscow hotel. 

Rep. Jim Jordan described the revelation as a 'disgrace' while others criticized the FBI for getting too involved in politics.

'You can't make this stuff up. But I think it just underscores how out of touch and how political the FBI has become,' Jordan said on Fox Business.

The revelations 'further validates what we all know, which is that the FBI is purely political now, going after their political opposition,' he said.

Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. wrote 'what a disgrace' on Twitter, while Senator Marsha Blackburn wrote: 'The FBI allegedly tried to payout $1 million to corroborate reports about President Trump that Hillary Clinton's campaign fabricated.'

In a statement to the Washington Examiner, Sen. Chuck Grassley said the 'lengths the FBI was willing to go at taxpayer expense to justify their investigation into the Trump campaign is just astounding and downright scary.
