Bob Woodward: Role Of Steele Dossier In Russia Probe Is "Highly Questionable,
realclear/fox ^

Posted on 04/21/2019 9:21:39 AM PDT by janetjanet998

What I out recently, which was really quite surprising, the dossier, which really has got a lot of garbage in it and Mueller found that to be the case, early in building the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference in an early draft, they actually put the dossier on page two in kind of a breakout box. I think it was the CIA pushing this, real intelligence experts looked at this and said no, this is not intelligence, this is garbage and they took it out.

CHRIS WALLACE: The inspector general is also doing it.
>p>
WOODWARD: And it should be. What I out recently, which was really quite surprising, the dossier, which really has got a lot of garbage in it and Mueller found that to be the case, early in building the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference in an early draft, they actually put the dossier on page two in kind of a breakout box. I think it was the CIA pushing this, real intelligence experts looked at this and said no, this is not intelligence, this is garbage and they took it out. But in this process, the idea that they would include something like that in one of the great stellar intelligence assessments as Mueller also found out is highly questionable. Needs to be investigated.

People need to ask themselves....if the Russians contributed all this ‘junk’ for the dossier, in hopes of taking down Trump, then they aren’t exactly in positive thoughts of him being there. So Russia fake news can’t be true, or else this whole affair is just a puffed-up fake story of the ninth-degree.

Or else we have one Putin group who is pro-Hillary, and a second Putin group who is pro-Trump.

The investigation might usefully start with the affirmation in the initial FISA warrant that the information in the Steele dossier was verified. This is concrete. It is also attributable to readily identifiable people, who should be charged with lying to the FISA court. The only thing still needful at that point would be a Maximum John Sirica to let these people know that either they testify honestly or their lives will be destroyed.

The Mueller apparat relentlessly squeezed small players who got tripped up on process crimes, some of them probably inadvertent and trivial but pressed to the max by prosecutors trying to flip the targets. The people responsible for knowingly false statements to the FISA court should not be let off the hook. Press it relentlessly and see where the trail leads.

The inevitable backtrack off his “worse than Watergate!” media press tour.

Was it Bob Woodward who said ‘it was worse than Watergate”, or was it Carl Bernstein?

Carl Bernstein has been up front more than once bad mouthing Donald Trump. He is a cheerleader for the Democrats and Adam Schiff.

Yeah?

Watch these f***ers very closely. What they are now attempting to do is create another false narrative,
“ Hey ! We were tricked by the Russians too ! So sorry we got used by the Russians too you guys. Let’s just move on and forget the whole thing “

No F***ing way!

- If it was bullshit why did Steele tirelessly peddle the thing relentlessly to the media?
- If the FBI determined it was dubious why did they run with it anyway?
- Why did Comey wave it under Trump`s nose in an attempt to intimidate him?
- Why did Comey use it as the basis for the entire investigation?

NO WAY!
They knew exactly what they were doing.

Rush had it right. You had just one Putin group who just wanted to cause as much discord and trouble as they could. They succeeded spectacularly.

in a repsponse to Brennan on twitter: Replying to @JohnBrennan

Oh, John: all the weaponized assets you sent my way [Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer, Stefan Halper] are all being outed from London, Rome and Canberra. Those governments are now actively cooperating with the Trump administration and have flipped on you. Your role will be exposed

This was just Tweeted a few hours ago by Sean Davis on Twitter. Follow him if you don’t. It is an article he wrote in October of 2017, for The Federalist. Refresh memories here:

Maximum John. I wonder if he was the inspiration for Maximum Bob.

Was he ever involved with alligators?

The worse than watergate event since wtarepate was Obama using the IRS against his political enemies.

If so, good on him for punching back!

This is the talking point directly from the Central Committee and all of the Trump Haters and Deep Staters are jumping on board. They knew all along that they wouldn’t be able to use the dossier as evidence, that wasn’t they needed from it. It was the key document to deceive the FISA Court, convince the Congress to demand a Special Counsel, and to encourage the coup leaders in the DOJ and the FBI to advance a full blown investigation of Donald Trump. Once they had done that, they were expecting to invent evidence needed to either impeach or force the resignation of the President.

Now that their schemes have all failed, they are trying to convince their idiot followers and the clueless that the dossier was just a humorous prank. The new meme is that the very existence of the Mueller Report is proof beyond a doubt that Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice. It won’t work, but it is the only bullet that they have.

Bernstein is a lazy sloppy partisan hack. If there was no Bob Woodward, there would be no Woodward Bernstein when it comes to Watergate. He is a hanger on who had the good fortune of being assigned to Woodward.. Woodward was the guy who came up with the big finds including Deep Throat. After Watergate commie Bernstein accomplished nothing other than running his partisan mouth

Everything from Steele is straight out of Ukraine, not Russia.
