Skip to comments.DID PRESIDENT OBAMA READ THE ‘STEELE DOSSIER’ IN THE WHITE HOUSE LAST AUGUST? (flashback 12/20/2017)

To date the investigation into the Fusion GPS-manufactured collusion scandal has focused largely on the firm itself, its allies in the press, as well as contacts in the Department of Justice and FBI. However, if a sitting president used the instruments of state, including the intelligence community, to disseminate and legitimize a piece of paid opposition research in order to first obtain warrants to spy on the other partys campaign, and then to de-legitimize the results of an election once the other partys candidate won, were looking at a scandal that dwarfs Watergatea story not about a bad man in the White House, but about the subversion of key security institutions that are charged with protecting core elements of our democratic process while operating largely in the shadows.
A Tablet investigation using public sources to trace the evolution of the now-famous dossier suggests that central elements of the Russiagate scandal emerged not from the British ex-spy Christopher Steeles top-secret sources in the Russian governmentwhich are unlikely to exist separate from Russian government controlbut from a series of stories that Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson and his wife Mary Jacoby co-wrote for The Wall Street Journal well before Fusion GPS existed, and Donald Trump was simply another loud-mouthed Manhattan real estate millionaire. Understanding the origins of the Steele dossier is especially important because of what it tells us about the nature and the workings of what its supporters would hopefully describe as an ongoing campaign to remove the elected president of the United States. Yet the involvement of sitting intelligence officialsand a sitting presidentin such a campaign should be a frightening thought even to people who despise Trump and oppose every single one of his policies, especially in an age where the possibilities for such abuses have been multiplied by the

“The WSJ knows full well that most of the dossier is from Glenn Simpson and Mary Jacoby, because they worked for the WSJ when they compiled those fictions and rumors about Trump years ago before Trump was a political candidate.”
Did president Obama read...
He has never read a book, from Enid Blyton to Tom Clancy.
I would bet the faem on it.
Actually, I wonder if Obama made the final edits on the Steele dossier before authorizing it for release via leaks.
Is using the fell powers of the executive branch for partisan political purposes somehow wrong?
Should Jarret and Hussein not have done that?
He'd need help just to make edits on a take-out order.
Of course he did. Does it matter? Would anything do anything about it? Nope. Just hannity and greg jarrett. And all they can do is talk or write about it.
No matter WHAT Obama did, does ANYONE ever think ANYTHING will happen to him? He is BULLETPROOF! No criminal act will ever touch either of the Obamas.....when it comes to them, their Banana Republic Govt employees will protect them.
Fusion GPS? Oh, that thing Mueller was clueless about.
All these high tech hacker tools ran into a brick wall with president Trump as he smartly has avoided laying down a email trail or has lots of hard disks with documents around waiting to be salted with incriminating evidence.
The opposite was true with Hillary, a truly sloppy operator
While John Brennan denies under oath that he "read the dossier" until October or November 2016, the weaselly SOB worded it that way for specific way for a reason.
The "dossier" was a cluster of derogatory documents clumped together, but it is 100% clear on two specific counts:
while Brennan is lying through his teeth and trying to be clever about it by saying he "didn't read the dossier" until months later after the election, he apparently had full knowledge of the separate documentary content prior to his brief of the "Gang of Eight" in August 2016.
How do we know this?
Because a day or two after Brennan briefed Harry Reid (as part of the Gang of Eight) Reid wrote a letter to the FBI demanding an investigation into the Trump campaign, and in that letter...Reid specifically mentioned the slander of Carter Page being offered or accepting a multi-million dollar bribe from the Russian government of entities tied to the Russian Government.
It is completely false and a lie, but they did is specifically as a basis to help them obtain a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. (The bribery would have been a crime) Of course, it never happened, has been proven to be a complete manufactured falsehood, and no charges have ever been filed., but the key is...
The ONLY place that information was available at that time was in the "dossier". So Brennan "told" Reid about it, and Reid included the allegation in his letter to the FBI a day or two later. The ONLY person he could have heard that from was Brennan. I have "told" in quotes, because I see it more as a collaboration between Brennan and Reid in the setup and surveillance of Donald Trump and his campaign.
Brennan also testified under oath that he briefed the Gang of Eight in "full coordination with the White House" which meant...the White House knew 100% what Brennan was selling. Which means President Barack Obama also had full knowledge of the sewage that Brennan was peddling.
We many never see Obama called to account on this.
But I do believe there is a chance we will see that scumbag Brennan nailed to the hull. Improbable, but I believe it could happen. Brennan coordinated this with foreign intelligence, which is where the whole issue has come to a head in the past two days about Joseph Mifsud who said through his lawyer that he was instructed to link George Papadopoulos to Russia.
Instructed (as a Western intelligence asset NOT RUSSIAN) to do this by...whom? The answer is obvious to me, given Brennan's unprecedented meeting with Robert Hannigan in July 2016 (Hannigan should have met with Admiral Mike Rogers who is his peer, but...Admiral Rogers was not trusted by the Obama Administration because of his slamming shut of contractor access to the NSA database when he discovered "irregularities" in access to information. So he met with Brennan before Brennan briefed the Gang of Eight.
Then Hannigan abruptly resigned for "personal reasons" after Trump won the election.
It was Brennan who is dirty with all of this.
He belongs at the end of a rope for treason.
“However, if a sitting president used the instruments of state...”
There is no “if” about it. It happened, and it seems increasingly unlikely that anything will be done about it, or to prevent it from happening again in the future.
Never heard of Simpson and Jacoby...
Brennan also testified under oath that he briefed the Gang of Eight in “full coordination with the White House” which meant...the White House knew 100% what Brennan was selling. Which means President Barack Obama also had full knowledge of the sewage that Brennan was peddling.
More importantly, it means McConnell and Ryan knew. This is the genesis of the bipartisan Mueller Coup right here.
which is why coward Ryan split the scene.
When Obama read the dossier (and I’m sure he did), I would imagine a scene like the one in Animial House when the dean gleefully reviewed the Deltas’ grade reports.
I am grateful to McConnell for his stellar work in the Judiciary Committee.
I hope he doesn’t see that work as his insurance against being scrutinized for his connections to Communist China and the wealth he and his wife have amassed from those connections.
If he starts singing a Leftist tune, some of which we have already heard chirps on, we will have our answer to that question.
Glenn Simpson is an important name. He runs Fusion GPS and is a central figure in all of this.
