15. It's kind of a mess to be honest

Some of it is true, some blatantly untrue. It was a compilation with a lot of different sources. Some of the sources are trustworthy, others are incredibly problematic. I went down that rabbit hole once, and there are parts I couldn't make heads or tails of.

The real problem is how the dossier was used in various courts. That's the frayed thread Republicans are pulling on.

The thing is, we don't even need the dossier at this point. We have three years of Trump's record with Russia to condemn him. He's clearly friendly and cooperative with Putin and Russia. That's what gives even the most problematic parts of the dossier the ring of truth. Even if some of the sources are iffy, it certainly sounds as if what they're asserting is at least plausible.

At the end of the day, we're going to use our own lenses. I absolutely think there was some kind of money laundering happening. The financials, Deutsch Bank, the whole mess. There's just far too much smoke there to not be a raging fire.

I'm honestly a bit surprised officials haven't gotten to the meat of it yet. But it seems SDNY is really getting into it. We'll see how long Berman lasts.
