Donald Trump has called for the extradition of a former MI6 agent who was behind a controversial dossier about his alleged links to Russia.
Christopher Steele, now a director of Orbis Business Intelligence, was responsible for the 'dirty dossier' published in 2016 that alleged Russian influence over President Trump.
The Steele Dossier contained allegations of collusion between Mr Trump's US presidential campaign and the Kremlin, which have been denied by both parties.
On Wednesday, Orbis was ordered to pay compensation to two Russian businessmen that had complained about data protection breaches including inaccuracies in the dossier relating to them.
Taking to Twitter, the US President shared a report on London's High Court ruling and claimed that Mr Steele should go on trial over the document.
In his retweet, Mr Trump said: 'This man should be extradited, tried, and thrown into jail '
An a second retweet, Mr Trump shared another report about the High Court's decision, adding: 'Bring back Steele!!!'

This is not extradition, it’s exfiltration, eh?
So we trade Prince Andrew for Steele.
Squeeze Ghislaine a bit and Andy becomes the first “Royal” to have a warrant out for him in the U.S.
Think the Royal Family will throw Steele under the bus in a noo yawk minute if they get Andy back...so they can drown him.
It very well could. Just not this year.
Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!
If he committed a crime, then he should be indicted and extradited.
Trump seems to be jumping the gun a bit here.
Thats nice but what about the large cast of domestic actors...lets prosecute them first. Weve had them available for that purpose for years now.
Great idea but about 9 months too late
Here is the rub and if it pisses you off so be it and I am obviously a Trump supporter.
Trump needs to stop tweeting about this stuff and he needs to get directly involved in combating the deep state. These people have targeted him, his Presidency, his family, his friends, and there is NO PENALTY for them doing so. In fact, causing Trump any pain from within government is a recipe for success in Washington DC. You can do all kinds of bad stuff and get paid for hits on liberal networks, book deals, think tank jobs, hired by democrat committees, etc etc.
Don’t believe me? Watch what happens to Vindman. Watch what happens for the spurned acting US Attorney for SDNY. This is a fact - look at McCabe, Comey, Page, and others.
Trump needs to stop flapping about this crap on Twitter and demand the documents he declassified are released. He needs to declassify more. He needs to demand the FISA court comes clean. He needs to demand DOJ action.
They did not give two damns that they dragged the Mueller investigation beyond the 2018 election despite knowing their core reason for existence was disproven - there was no Russian collusion with the Trump team. Did they say this before the election? Nope. Now all of a sudden Barr and DOJ are worried that their properly predicated investigation might be seen as political if they go public with stuff prior to this election? Are they kidding!!!!!!!!!! The left did not give two damns about this in 2018 so why do they care?
Trump gets screwed again. I swear that he likes it because I cannot figure out how/why he continues to remain hands off. NOTHING HAPPENS! We have a big fat ZERO to show for this and the deep state continues to fight him at every turn because there are no consequences!
Sorry for the vent, but I am tired of all of this. He promised he would drain the swamp. Promises made - promises kept. He continues to rely on the swamp to do the draining. How is that working out?
Prosecute them using what lawyers? In front of which judges? Don't you suppose that all of this would have been happening at least two years ago if that were even possible? The extradition of Steele is the best move at this time.
Well written. And it juxtaposes nicely with your tagline! ;)
“Trump seems to be jumping the gun a bit here.”
Four years of assault. Lies. Really?
Jumping the gun?
Geese, you’re pathetic. Uniformed. Sound like a rat party plant.
Just maybe Durham’s indictments are forthcoming.
"The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people's fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration, and a very effective form of promotion."

Yeah. Sure. Ive heard that so many times, and John Solomon is persona-non-grata in my news views due to his Chicken Little indictments forthcoming proclamations ending up as garbage. I DONT CARE ABOUT THEIR STORIES ANY MORE. Show me the money or GTFO! /rant
I like the way you think.
All I’m saying is that there is not an indictment today. When their is one, then drag him here.
