A new report from The New Yorker has shed light on British spy turned private investigator and author of the infamous “Steele Dossier” on Donald Trump, Christoper Steele.
The profile also reveals information that shows why the popular vote losing President is likely continuing to attack Steele as Fake News:
Scott Dworkin of the Democratic Coalition points out, “Why Trump ACTUALLY attacks Steele: Christopher Steele’s been investigating Trump Tower since 2011. Led to 44 indictments of 2 Russia-linked criminal groups—both based in tower. FBI hired Steele to investigate Russian mob in tower—led to 30 indictments.”
Also, as Senator Ted Lieu points out, the article sheds a lot of light on the current state of the investigation into Trump’s connections with Russia:
Read this Christopher Steele piece. Now consider this:
- Tillerson has spent $0 of the $120 million Congress gave him to counter election meddling
- Trump refuses to implement bipartisan congressional sanctions on Russia
- Trump has not directed FBI / NSA to counter Russian meddling
The evidence is getting stronger and stronger by the day in suggesting that Trump and his associates are indeed every bit as corrupt as they appear to be on the surface.
Why attack Steele over and over if he’s just “Fake News”? It’s because Trump is clearly knows what the dossier says about him is largely accurate.
