Quick! Someone call Hell and get the current temperature. The MSNBC panel agreed that the Hillary dossier has been totally destroyed by the Mueller probe. Included on the panel is Michael Isikoff and David Corn, the co-authors of Russian Roulette.
But, if they are correct and the Mueller probe did put the dossier to bed for the final time, that means the FBI never was able to confirm a single item. That means someone needs to go to prison for trying to alter an election outcome by perpetrating a fraud. And a lot of FBI and DOJ heads defrauded the FISA court.
The two journalists most closely linked to the Steele dossier acknowledged Monday that the Democrat-funded document was debunked by the Mueller investigation, which found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
“I think one of the reasons people were so surprised by the Mueller finding is that it undercuts almost everything that was in the dossier, which postulated a well-developed conspiracy between the Russians and the Trump campaign,” Michael Isikoff, a reporter for Yahoo! News, told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.
“That’s what got people worked up initially, and we do have to acknowledge that that which was alleged has not panned out.”
Isikoff was joined by David Corn, a reporter at Mother Jones. Isikoff and Corn, who co-wrote the book “Russian Roulette,” are two of a small handful of reporters who met with dossier author Christopher Steele prior to the 2016 election.
They both wrote articles for their respective outlets touting Steele’s allegations that Trump associates conspired with Russians to influence the election.
