Then-FBI Director James Comey and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe fought to include information from British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s dossier in the January 2017 intelligence community assessment on Russian election interference, according to a Justice Department watchdog report.

But the CIA “expressed concern” about using the former MI6 agent’s salacious and unverified allegations, and the allegations ultimately did not make an appearance in the body of the text of the assessment of Russia’s activities during the 2016 election.

The article goes on to state the following:

The detailed examination of the clash between the FBI and the CIA comes from an FBI intelligence section chief and a supervisory intelligence analyst who appeared in Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report about his Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act investigation, which was released on Monday.
