The former British spy who produced a dossier describing alleged links between Donald Trump and Russia will not cooperate with a prosecutor assigned by U.S. Attorney General William Barr to review how the investigations of Trump and his 2016 election campaign began, a source with knowledge of the situation said.
Christopher Steele, a former Russia expert for the British spy agency MI6, will not answer questions from prosecutor John Durham, named by Barr to examine the origins of the investigations into Trump and his campaign team, said the source close to Steeles London-based private investigation firm, Orbis Business Intelligence.
Trump has given Barr broad authority to declassify intelligence materials related to the investigations. Last week Trump ordered the heads of U.S. spy and law enforcement agencies to cooperate with Durham.
Steele, who had previously collaborated with the FBI on issues such as corruption in the global soccer organization FIFA, was hired in 2016 by Fusion GPS, a Washington-based private investigations firm working for lawyers representing the Democratic Party and Hillary Clintons presidential campaign.
Steele produced for Fusion GPS a set of controversial and sometimes salacious reports describing alleged contacts Trump and his team had with Russians before the election.

Gee...I can’t imagine why not?
grab the guy - waterboard
Invite him into the us embassy, serve him there.
Charge him in absentia and POTUS can deliver the indictment when he is in England next week. Really, after 3 years there should be no need to gather more facts. Time to move on to the prosecution phase. If that doesn’t happen in the next few months we will know the fix is in.
It seems to me if Mueller was able to indict a bunch of Russians for interfering in the election, Barr should be able to indict Steele for interfering in the election - after all, what Steele did caused much more disruption in our country than anything the Russians did.
Where is he at?
They should do a Khashoggi on him.
When our President meets with the Queen, he should suggest that she needs convince the British government to deliver him before he leaves England, or England might find a very cold reception from the US on all future endeavors like trade post Brexit.
What Great Britain participated in was historically viewed as an act of war, not the actions of a special relationship.
You think a former MI5 guy is worried about arkancide?
He probably doesnt even know WTF that is.
He’s worried about Barr and Trump and a whole lot more than arkancide, which honestly is beginning to be like “sounds like Quaker names” :)
It needs to go the way of folks who still think the mafia has a strong presence in Las Vegas and they are the ones who hurt Harry Reid.
Steele is pushing the envelope. Seems there’s a lot of interest in the British government to keep the envelope sealed so-to-speak. I’d bet pushing a few pressure points will cause sufficient grief for Steele to make at least a workable story to everyone’s satisfaction on both sides of the pond. I’d rather see the truth in its entirety, but I don’t think that’s going to happen no matter.
Could you add “Comrade” in place of John?
Scoop him up and waterboard him.
Comrade is right!
Steele’s non cooperation would seem to be reason to give Fusion FSB and Perkins Coie FBI no-knock raids. I won’t be holding my breath waiting for that to happen.
He should be killed in a public place in Britain.
