Trump 'morally unfit to be president,' Comey says

While much of the president’s invective about the investigation — conducted first by the FBI and then by special counsel Robert Mueller — centers on the opposition dossier, Comey told ABC News that “the investigation was triggered entirely separately from the Steele dossier.”

The investigation actually began when the FBI learned in July 2016 that George Papadopoulos, who was briefly an adviser to the Trump presidential campaign, “had been talking to someone in London about getting dirt that the Russians had on Hillary Clinton.”

“The FBI didn’t get any information that’s part of the so-called Steele dossier, as I understand it, until after that,” he said.

Regardless, he said, once it learned of the dossier, the FBI considered Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who compiled it, to be a credible source, calling him “someone with a track record, someone who was a credible and respected member of an allied intelligence service during his career.”
