CBS News on Monday published the findings of an Associated Press fact-check on President Trump’s tweets on those newly released documents from the FBI, which included the (heavily redacted) FISA warrant application to spy on Trump aide Carter Page.

Included among those tweets was this one, in which Trump declares the Christopher Steele dossier “a Clinton Campaign document.”

That particular fact-check caught the eye of The Federalist’s Sean Davis:

Here’s the AP’s reasoning behind that claim:

It’s also not correct to call the Steele dossier a “Clinton Campaign document.” Steele was hired by Fusion GPS, a private research firm that in turn was hired by a law firm that represented the Democratic campaign. But Clinton’s closest aides said they didn’t learn about the research until after the election, which is probable considering they never raised the allegations publicly.

We especially like the use of, “But Clinton’s closest aides said…” in a fact-check of Donald Trump: stellar work there. “Which is probable” is also a nice touch.

So, the DNC and the Clinton campaign didn’t pay for the dossier — they went through a law firm that paid Fusion GPS, who paid for the dossier — and they didn’t use any of it publicly as opposition research during the campaign. And that’s why it’s incorrect to call it a Clinton campaign document.

What was it then if not a campaign document?
