Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said Friday that U.S. officials received as many as six warnings that dossier author Christopher Steele was an unreliable source of information regarding President Donald Trump.
Graham discussed the assessment of Steele during a radio interview with host Sean Hannity, but he stopped short of describing all of the information regarding the former British spy because much of it is classified.
“There’s four events that I’m aware of, five actually, where the system was informed that Christopher Steele was an unreliable informant when it came to Trump,” Graham told Hannity.
“Some of them I can’t tell you yet until we get this stuff declassified. But I think it’s going to be five; it may be six,” the South Carolina Republican added later.

Republicans have accused the FBI of abusing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by relying on Steele’s unverified reports in applications to wiretap Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser.
The bureau obtained four warrants to spy on Page, the first of which was granted on Oct. 21, 2016.
Republicans have said the FBI failed to disclose that Steele told Justice Department official Bruce Ohr in September 2016 he was “desperate” that Trump not be elected. The FBI also continued to cite Steele’s information in its FISA application even after cutting ties with the ex-spy on Nov. 1, 2016 after learning about his contacts with the media.
