DEVELOPING=> Sen. Grassley Releases ‘MUCH-LESS REDACTED’ Version of ‘Memo 2.0’

On Tuesday, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released a “much-less redacted,” version of this week’s criminal referral — also known as memo 2.0 — of former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

Below are screenshots of both the redacted and much-less redacted versions of Grassley’s report.

Page three of the report reveals, “”The FBI stated to the FISC that “based on [Steele’s] previous history with the FBI, whereby [Steele] provided reliable information to the FBI, the FBI believe [Steele’s] reporting to be credible.””

Translation, the FBI believed Steele’s dossier was credible mainly because of his reputation, not due to the information itself.

As Breitbart News reporter Kristina Wong points out, the FISA application did not disclose “that the identities of Mr. Simpson’s ultimate clients were the Clinton campaign and the DNC.”

Independent researcher Brian Cates summed up the less-redacted memo in a series of tweets.

As Security Studies’ Nick Short pointed out, either the FISA applications are “either materially false,” in stating Christopher Steele claimed he did not hand over the dossier information to the media before October, 2016, or the former British spy lied to the FBI.
