In his deposition in a trial over defamation, Christopher Steele admitted that he got some of his information from an old CNN site.
This is just further proof that the Hillary dossier is a hoax and that is why nothing has ever been verified from it and many things have been proven to be demonstrably false. He got the story about Aleksej Gubarev and how his companies were responsible for the hacking of the DNC server from the I-Report site, formerly run by CNN.
That site allowed people to make posts that would not be edited or censored.
Former British spy Christopher Steele confessed that he used an unverified report submitted to a CNN website, where “random individuals” can post information, for his salacious anti-Trump dossier.
Steele made the awkward revelation during a deposition last year in a case involving Russian entrepreneur Aleksej Gubarev, who claims his companies Webzilla and XBT Holdings were defamed by Steele after the dossier was published by BuzzFeed.
Steele was asked during the deposition how he verified allegations about Gubarev’s companies and whether he found “anything of relevance concerning Webzilla,” according to the newly released transcripts of the deposition.
“We did. It was an article I have got here which was posted on July 28, 2009, on something called CNN iReport,” Steele said.
But CNN iReport, which appears to be no longer active — though archives remain accessible online — states that it’s a “user-generated site” and warns that “the stories submitted by users are not edited, fact-checked or screened before they post.”
