In his interview with George Stephanopoulos, fired FBI Director James Comey says that he did not inform President Trump that the Steele Dossier was funded by the DNC because it “wasn’t necessary for my goal.”
STEPHANOPOULOS: Did you tell him that the Steele dossier had been financed by his political opponents?
COMEY: No. I didn't -- I didn't think I used the term "Steele dossier." I just talked to him about additional material.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Did -- but did he have a right to know that?
COMEY: That it had been financed by his political opponents? I don't know the answer to that.
I -- it wasn't necessary for my goal, which was to alert him that we had this information.
