BREAKING REPORT: Christopher Steele to Speak With US Investigators About Dossier Allegations
Former British spy and author of the 35-page, Hillary-funded Russia dossier Christopher Steele, has agreed to be questioned by US investigators, reported Fox News.
Former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the anti-Trump dossier of salacious and unverified claims about the president’s ties to Russia, has agreed to be questioned by investigators from the United States, according to a report in Britain.
The Times (UK) cited sources close to Steele on Tuesday in reporting that the 54-year-old is set to be interviewed in London within weeks. The development comes as attention has returned to the dossier authored by Steele — especially since its more sensational claims were not substantiated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose report found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
It is unclear who will be questioning Christopher Steele but he previously refused to cooperate with Barr and Durham, however, he was willing to speak with IG Horowitz in his parallel investigation.
Last week it was reported that Christopher Steele, who was paid by Hillary Clinton and the DNC to compile a 35-page dossier smearing Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election is refusing to cooperate with US Attorney John Durham in his investigation into the origins of Spygate.
Attorney General Bill Barr and US Attorney John Durham are currently conducting an inter-agency investigation into the origins of Spygate.
Hillary Clinton hid her payments to Steele by paying him through Perkins Coie, the law firm that represented the DNC during the 2016 presidential election.
Steele worked as a CHS [Confidential Human Source] for the FBI while simultaneously working for oppo research firm Fusion GPS to compile a 35-page dossier full of lies against Donald Trump, using his “Russian” intel sources.
Even though the FBI terminated Christopher Steele, he continued to feed the US government information through DOJ official Bruce Ohr who was acting as a backchannel to the FBI.
The FBI ultimately used the phony, Hillary-funded salacious dossier to obtain a FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page in order to spy on Trump during the 2016 election.
The main reason why Steele was willing to cooperate with the IG is because Horowitz has no teeth — he cannot impanel a grand jury — he can only criminally refer people to the DOJ.
In contrast, Durham’s investigation spans across multiple intel agencies and he has the power to convene a grand jury.
