Trump Administration attempts to discredit the FBI and the Steele Dossier

There is a danger that the United States under Donald Trump will be transformed into a Mafia state very similar to that of the Russian Federation under Vladimir Putin.

Since late January 2018, political operatives for Donald Trump have initiated a counter attack against Robert Mueller's investigation by trying to discredit the FBI and the Steele Dossier.  At the forefront of the attack appear to be letters to DNC personnel from GOP Senators Grassley and Graham demanding information on the Steele Dossier and the so-called Nunes "Memo" attributed to GOP Congressman Devin Nunes. Links to these documents, as well as my short summary, are provided below.

Strangely, they concentrate only on the period April to November 2016, when Fusion GPS (and by extension Christopher Steele) was being paid by the Democratic Party, but ignore the much longer period dating back to 2015 when Fusion GPS was being paid by the Republican Party (or their sympathizers). Even more strange is that they accuse Christopher
Steele of being "biased" against Donald Trump, when he uncovered evidence that Mr. Trump and his supporters were collaborating with Russian intelligence services. Of course he would be concerned or "biased"! Any normal person interested in the security of Britain and the United States would be.

Donald Trump demands blind "loyalty" from his subordinates and expects blind "loyalty" from the FBI and other American institutions. This is dictatorship. Should he succeed in compromising the independence of law enforcement and the judiciary, there is a danger that the United States under Donald Trump will be transformed into a Mafia state very similar to that of the Russian Federation under Vladimir Putin. The similarities are striking!

On 25Jan2018, Senators Charles Grassley and Lindsey Graham sent a 4-page letter (almost identical) to 6 organizations or individuals associated with the Democratic Party 2016 presidential election campaign.
- First, they refer to the Democratic Party hiring Christopher Steele, via Fusion GPS, for the period of April to November 2016 "to make allegations against Donald Trump and his associates".
- Then they imply "improper political influence" ... "in seeking judicial authorization for surveillance of individuals associated with Donald Trump".
- Next, they pose 12 questions as to the recipient's knowledge of the Steele Dossier, the Buzzfeed publication and any other distribution thereoff, and everything else of relevance.
- They conclude by demanding "all related documents" by 08Feb2018.

On 02Feb2018, Donald McGahn (Counsel for the President) wrote a 2-page covering letter to Congressman Devin Nunes referring to the 29Jan2018 "House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence"decision to disclose publicly the 4-page "Memo" dated 18Jan2018 titled "Forign Intelligence Surveillance Act Abuses at the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation". The "President has determined that declassification of the Memorandum is appropriate".

The "Memo" questions the legality of the 16Oct2016 order received by the DOJ and FBI "authorizing electronic surveillance on Carter Page".
- In 5 listed points, the rest of the "Memo" weaves a web of innuendo against Christopher Steele, Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr and his wife, and others.
- Reference is also made to Deputy Attorney Generals Yates and Rosenstein, Director Comey and Deputy Director McCabe.
- The final paragraph refers to George Papadopoulos and FBI personnel Pete Strozk and his mistress Lisa Page.
