Though heavily redacted, Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham have released the next phase of memo releases which reveal a criminal referral against Christopher Steele, ex-British spy, and creator of the nefarious Trump Dossier.
According to the Senators, Steele was being given “intel” directly from the Obama State Department and from Clinton allies as well as the probably-not-to-be trusted Russian sources of his.
Did you catch that? Clinton and Obama were working with a foreign spy in an attempt to sabotage then-Presidental hopeful Donald Trump.
” … Mr. Steele’s memorandum states that his company received this report from (redacted), U.S. State Department, and that the report was the second in the series, and that the report was information that came from a foreign sub source who is in touch with a contact of (redacted), a friend of the Clintons who passed it to (redacted).”
As reported by Fox News:
This Grassley-Graham memo also details how Steele was using his first phony dossier to brief several mainstream media outlets, you know, the folks who bring you fake news, in the summer and the fall of 2016. British court records show Steele acknowledged he peddled his memo to The New York Times, Washington Post, Yahoo News, The New Yorker, and, of course, CNN.
However, since he was working for the FBI, he would have been barred from leaking to the media. In fact, the FBI later cut ties with him when it learned he had broken the rule. So who did he lie to, the FBI or the British courts?
It’s hard to keep all the memos and dossiers straight. If you’re scoring at home, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released a memo over the objections of Democrats and the media that showed how the FBI used Steele’s first dossier to get a federal warrant to spy on people close to Trump. The Democrats hope to release their own “memo,” which is not a memo at all but just a sour-grapes rebuttal to the committees. The Grassley-Graham memo is a third document that tells us Obama and Clinton operatives fed Steele information to try to damage Trump.
