The Republicans are claiming that the ear is given a Central role in the sale of the dossier, in order by the Fusion of GPS and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee. You are probably asking, why the ear broke with the Protocol and the communication with the author, Steele, long after the FBI fired him as a source by the end of 2016 due to its contacts with the media.

Months later, the ear, confirmed by Steele that he was in his questions to Miller’s team. The Republican-led house Intelligence Committee found that Steele effectively the ear is used as a back-channel for communication after its termination.
“I don’t know whether to stick it on a error, but I want to know, who knew at the DOJ and it looks so out of it to Steele to meet with Mr., after the FBI had terminated your relationship with Mr. Steele,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told Fox News.

The dossier was justified by Federal officials, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to Trump aide Carter page.
“The basics don’t change the fact that a top Ministry of justice, the woman works official for the company, the Clinton’s hired to put together the dossier and the FBI used the said in the dossier that you get from Bruce’s ear … then the spy to justify the trump campaign”, Jordan. “That is a great concern, the knew of the DOJ is that?”
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N. C., said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday that they want to documents, declassify, to the fact that the American people can judge, the FBI and DOJ actions.
“If you see it, you will be appalled by what happened to our FBI and DOJ that never happened, in a constitutional Republic,” Meadows said.
The controversy has, also the White house, where President Trump has weighed in, and floated revocation of ear security clearance.
