Evidence has been unearthed that suggests the Steele dossier was produced by the Clintons and then fed to Christopher Steele and then eventually to the FBI via John Kerry’s State Department.

Former Clinton friend and advisor, Dick Morris suggested in February 2018 that the Steele dossier might have been made up by the Clintons and that Steele was only used to provide it some credibility:
“The reason Hillary hired Fusion [GPS] is because she needed someone more credible than Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer to float these charges,” Morris alleges.
Just as the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee used intermediaries in financing the Steele dossier to keep its fingerprints off a document styled as intelligence and not opposition research, Shearer allegedly used the tactic of laundering to ensure that his information looked as though coming from a clean source rather than a political dirty trickster.
In April 2018 Real Clear Politics reported that they had received a 2nd copy of the Steele dossier that came from individuals related to the Clintons.
In late September 2016, Sidney Blumenthal, a close Clinton confidant and colleague of Shearer’s, passed Shearer’s dossier on to State Department official Jonathan M. Winer, a longtime aide to John Kerry on Capitol Hill and at Foggy Bottom.
According to Winer’s account in a Feb. 8, 2018 Washington Post op-ed, he shared the contents of the Shearer dossier with the author of the first dossier, ex-British spy Christopher Steele, who submitted part of it to the FBI to further substantiate his own investigation into the Trump campaign.
Real Clear Politics also noted that:
The only Trump campaign figures named are Donald Trump himself and his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, misspelled as “Manniford.” Shearer may be hinting at a third person when he quotes, without substantiation, a Turkish businessman saying a Russian source knows of a “cut out” or intermediary through whom the prospective “president of the U.S.” would communicate “into President Putin’s office.” The version of the two memos RCI has seen is undated.
This was a unique spelling of Paul Manafort’s name. What’s coincidental is that another similar spelling of Manafort’s name was revealed in information gathered from John Kerry’s State Department.
Kathleen Kavalec took notes from a meeting with Steele where she misspelled Manafort’s name in a similar fashion (Manaferd) as in creepy Shearer’s memo –
It looks like Steele provided Kavalec in Kerry’s State Department the bogus dossier after he received it from others in the State Department. Kavalec then provided this to the FBI.
Last night Congressman Mark Meadows said that the Steele dossier and therefore the Mueller report is built on a “foundation of sand”.
It looks more and more like the entire Steele dossier was not only paid for by the Hillary campaign but may have been created by the Hillary campaign as well. The whole thing was a manufactured sham used by the Deep State to attempt a coup of the Trump administration.
