3. I always recall the NYT piece—with major scoop of leaked McFarland emails—included this tantalizing nugget of a planned meeting with President-elect Trump later that same day. Raising Q of what Trump knew… (@nytmike @SharonLNYT @ScottShaneNYT reporting)

Giuliani invokes Woodward on collusion👇

#WoodwardBook is very superficial on this topic. When it does make a claim it gets stuff WRONG. 2 examples:

Woodward: “The sources that Steele used for his dossier had not been polygraphed, which made their information uncorroborated” 1/
Some Steele's sources' info had been corroborated at the time. FBI Dir Comey's declassified notes of what he told Priebus:

"I explained that the analysts from all three agencies agreed it was relevant and that portions of the material were corroborated by other intelligence.” 2/

Woodward: “The sources that Steele used for his dossier had not been polygraphed, which made their information uncorroborated”

Because Steele's sources weren't polygraphed, their info cannot be considered corroborated? 🙄 3/
