The FBI reportedly had doubts about one of the Trump dossier author’s top sources after an interview in January 2017.

The dossier, compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele, contained salacious and unverified claims about President Trump’s ties to Russia. It was used by the FBI obtain a series of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants to wiretap one-time Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

The article goes on to state the following:

The first warrant application was submitted in October 2016, after which there were three renewals at three-month intervals, including in January, April, and June 2017. That means at least two renewal applications were submitted after the FBI met with Steele’s source.

FBI agents wanted to know how the source got his information, suspecting after the interview that the individual “might have added his own interpretations to reports passed on by his sources,” according to three sources and a Justice Department document reported by the New York Times.
