US President Donald Trump on Tuesday lashed out at the FBI and the Clinton campaign on the Russia dossier compiled against him and his 2016 campaign.

“FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED. And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!” Trump tweeted, the latest in his ongoing smear on the FBI, The Hill reported.

The dossier, a compilation of opposition research against the 2016 Trump campaign, was partly funded by Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). It included several incendiary claims against Trump and his campaign that have loomed over his presidency.

While the research for the dossier was originally aimed at finding information on the entire field of GOP candidates, it alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow that eventually became the focus of the project.

Some Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, which has investigated witnesses in connection with the dossier, have begun to probe into the FBI’s and Justice Department’s handling of the look into the claims included in the document.
