In his soon to be released book, former FBI Director James Comey describes how he pushed back against a request from President Donald Trump to investigate the most infamous charge made inside the anti-Trump dossier – the widely mocked and entirely unsubstantiated claim that the politician hired prostitutes to urinate on a hotel room bed in Moscow.

Comey also describes numerous other conversations with Trump in which the president complained about the dossier allegations.

Comey’s description of events makes clear that he failed to tell the president on multiple occasion that his FBI was already fully aware that the dossier had been paid by Trump’s primary political opponents, namely Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Comey apparently also did not inform Trump that his own FBI had determined the dossier to be “only minimally corroborated,” as documented by a four-page House Intelligence Committee memo alleging abuse of surveillance authority.
