It isn't phony. And it wasn't the only thing used to obtain the warrant. When you get different sources corroborating each other, that's when things start looking suspicious. And that's what the FBI had.
The Durham Report will show the American People that the Democrat Politicos staged a Coup.

It is pretty amazing that one institution could be so crooked...and their mindset was we will never get caught!

The FBI Tragedy: Elites above the Law

After decades in the FBI, the top brass came to believe they could flout the law and pursue their own political agendas.
One of the media and beltway orthodoxies we constantly hear is that just a few bad apples under James Comey at the FBI explain why so many FBI elites have been fired, resigned, reassigned, demoted, or retired — or just left for unexplained reasons. The list is long and includes director James Comey himself, deputy director Andrew McCabe, counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, attorney Lisa Page, chief of staff James Rybicki, general counsel James Baker, assistant director for public affairs Mike Kortan, Comey’s special assistant Josh Campbell, executive assistant director James Turgal, assistant director for office of congressional affairs Greg Bower, executive assistant director Michael Steinbach, and executive assistant director John Giacalone. In short, in about every growing scandal of the past two years — FISA, illegal leaking, spying on a presidential candidate, lying under oath, obstructing justice — someone in the FBI is involved.FBI Tragedy: Elites above the Law | National Review
The FBI has always been a political policing organization.

You do NOT use an unverified source in order to to obtain a fisa warrant.
That isn't all they used.

Steele was known to the FBI to be reliable. So as one part of a larger body of evidence, which fit with all the other parts, it was perfectly reasonable to include.

Plus, you said it was fake or phony or whatever. If that's the reason you want to dismiss it, it's a bad reason, because it's neither fake nor phony. If it wasn't the reason, why bother to even mention it?

Yes, and you would think they would keep their mouths shut. Running scared, and acting like they did the right thing. Another guy who needs to go to jail is avowed Communist John Brennan. He is a real slime-ball and I hope he gets his just sentence.

Of course, I am not sure many of them will be punished. It seems that conservatives are the only ones who pay for their crimes.
WAAAAAAA!
