Christopher Steele’s company in the UK Orbis Business Intelligence, refuted an article in the UK press that stated that Steele’s dossier was bogus.
Orbis did so in a recent tweet:

In their response, Orbis claimed that three individuals confirmed the Steele dossier. The individuals noted were John Sipher, Chuck Rosenburg and Anthony Ferrante. The fact that Orbis would use these three as support for its dossier is not surprising.
John Sipher, was a member of the CIA’s Senior Intelligence Service. He wrote an article in September 2017 where he claimed the dossier was reliable.
We know that Chuck Rosenburg was disgraced former Jim Comey’s Chief of Staff. He was all over the Russia collusion sham, so no doubt he would claim the Steele dossier was valid, because his innocence in criminal investigations depends on it.
But what about Anthony Ferrante? Who is Anthony Ferrante?
Chris Steele's firm published a letter to the editor suggesting that ex-FBI official Anthony Ferrante had validated the dossier.
The firm did not disclose that a.) Ferrante did not validate the dossier, and b.) BuzzFeed paid Ferrante $4 million to try to do so. pic.twitter.com/YeBnHXNZVG

Paul Sperry at RealClearInvestigations.com told us all about this Deep State operative in July 2019:
Knowledgeable sources inside the Trump White House say Comey carved out an extraordinary new position for Ferrante, which allowed him to remain on reserve status at the FBI while working in the White House as a cybersecurity adviser.
“In an unprecedented action, Comey created a new FBI reserve position for Ferrante, enabling him to have an ongoing relationship with the agency, retaining his clearances and enabling him to come back in [to bureau headquarters],” said a former National Security Council official who requested anonymity.
“Between the election and April 2017, when Ferrante finally left the White House, the Trump NSC division supervisor was not allowed to get rid of Ferrante,” he added, “and Ferrante continued working — in direct conflict with the no-contact policy between the White House and the Department of Justice.”
Oh, and Ferrante was also paid $4 million by Buzzfeed to confirm the Steele dossier.
The fact that the only individuals Orbis could find to stand by their garbage dossier were three Deep State actors is not surprising. To include at least one individual who was paid $4 million to confirm the dossier, tells you all you need to know about the fraudulent Steele dossier.
