A transcript has been released that has revealed the FBI may have been compromised by the Russian collusion theory and the fake Steele Dossier.
A new report reveals that our FBI officials may have been deeply compromised by a debunked Trump-Russia conspiracy theory and bogus “dossier.”
Business Insider reported that James Baker, the former general counsel of the FBI, testified to Congress last year that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told him two members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet were open to invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office after he fired FBI Director James Comey.
On Tuesday, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, released a transcript of Baker’s testimony to the public.
According to the transcript, Baker made the revelation toward the end of the hearing, after Republican Rep. Jim Jordan asked him about reports that Rosenstein had discussed invoking the 25th Amendment and wearing a wire to record his conversations with Trump.
AG William Barr testified before Congress that he does believe Trump’s campaign was spied on.

Former FBI General Counsel James Baker said top officials at the Justice Department and FBI discussed appointing a special counsel before the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
After the firing, officials wondered if Trump had fired Comey at the behest of Russia, Baker testified during a closed-door interview in front of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in October 2018.
Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., released a transcript of the interview Wednesday.
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told Baker, “We now have evidence that would suggest that a special prosecutor was being discussed prior to the firing of Director Comey,” and said information came from “[Justice Department official] Bruce Ohr’s notes where he was having conversations about a special prosecutor in March of 2017.”
Meadows asked Baker, “Did you have conversations prior to the firing of James Comey about a special prosecutor?”
Baker said, “To the best of my recollection, that topic came up, but I don’t remember a specific conversation sitting here today about it, but I remember it coming up.” He said he couldn’t remember why it was mentioned as a possibility.
“What would be the conflict of you all continuing your investigation?” Meadows asked.
