A release last week of texts showed that Christopher Steele, the former British spy whose memos regarding the Trump campaigns possible ties to Russia are referred to as the Steele dossier, reached out to Sen. Mark Warner, the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, through a Russian-linked Washington, D.C., lobbyist named Adam Waldman. Among Waldmans clients is Oleg Deripaska, a Russian aluminum magnate with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. In a text dated March 16, 2017, Waldman texted Warner, Chris Steele asked me to call you.
In 2009, Waldman filed papers with the Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) registering himself as an agent for Deripaska in order to provide legal advice on issues involving his U.S. visa as well as commercial transactions at a retainer of $40,000 a month. In 2010, Waldman additionally registered as an agent for Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, gathering information and providing advice and analysis as it relates to the U.S. policy towards the visa status of Oleg Deripaska, including meetings with U.S. policymakers. Based on the information in his FARA filings, Waldman has received at least $2.36 million for his work with Deripaska.

No explaination needed. He is a Dem so nothing needs to be explained. if the AG of the US doesn’t want to know then why would anyone else?
Also from the texts:
Waldman to Sen Warner: "You are my favorite senator." "I rented the Rappaport house for July so I will be a few beaches down from you this summer."
So Steele and GPS Fusion are supposedly so "anti-Putin", Yet, Simpson works for KGB-Veselnitskaya and Steele works for Putin oligarch Deripaska ?
How much would you bet that Glenn Simpson knows Waldman rather well?
“You are my favorite senator.” = You will be the easiest to bribe.
“I rented the Rappaport house for July so I will be a few beaches down from you this summer.” = Contact me then for the payoff.
I don’t know, but Simpson definitely knows THIS Waldman:
can you just imagine the Hysteria if this Senator or a Republican?
So let’s see - if Steele was paid by a Russian oligarch, and the FBI used the “dossier” Steele produced to get sham FISA warrants on Trump associates, does that mean the FBI colluded with Russia?.....
The Billary, Inc.-Russian collusion truth gets closer.
He sure knew how to play the FBI and Fusion GPS and Harry Reid and John McCain and the 0bama/Clinton State Department. They all swore he was a swell guy, super trustworthy too. It wouldn't be the first time that MI6 produced a turncoat. Steele has a kind of Kim Philby whiff about him.
