At the beginning of today isn't the first run through Trump has tweeted about the dossier, refering to Fox News. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION.

The Fox News report that Trump is quoting is itself bogus - parts of the dossier seem to be accurate, and the FBI investigation is uncovering more unnerving aspects of Trump's relationship with Russian Federation during his campaign.

Fox News reported last week that during a closed-door session with the House Intelligence Committee, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe stood by the document's credibility but, when pressed to identify what in the salacious document the bureau had corroborated, cited only the fact that Page had traveled to Moscow.

President Trump announced his return to work on Tuesday following the holiday break - though that return is looking more like watching Fox and Friends and golfing than focusing on any pressing policy issues.

Trump called the report "bogus" and a "pile of garbage".

Trump added that "this Crooked HIllary pile of garbage", as he described the dossier, was used "as the basis for going after the Trump campaign!" Trump wrote in one of several anti-FBI tweets Saturday.
