Skip to comments.Dossier Architects Claimed They Wanted To Protect Identity Of Sources. One Was Unmasked Anyway

Former British spy Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson claimed to have concerns about the safety and security of one of the sources for the dossier, but outed him anyway by talking to journalists.
Steele told a State Department official in October 2016 that source protection was a focus in his investigation of President Donald Trump, according to notes from the meeting released earlier this month.
That purported concern was also shared by Simpson, who hired Steele on behalf of the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign. He told Justice Department official Bruce Ohr on Jan. 20, 2017, that he was worried about the safety of a dossier source he believed was about to be identified in the media.
Sergei Millian was outed four days later.
On Jan. 24, 2017, ABC News and The Wall Street Journal identified Millian, an American citizen born in Belarus, as an unwitting source for Steele. Described interchangeably as Source D, Source E and an ethnic Russian associate of Trump, Millian was the source who claimed that the Kremlin was blackmailing Trump with a salacious sex tape and that the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to influence the election.
Millians outing as a dossier source is perhaps an unintended consequence of Steele and Simpsons contacts with journalists during their investigation of Trump.
As part of its contract with the DNC and Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS was tasked with providing journalists with details of Steeles investigation. Steele and Simpson briefed numerous journalists and government officials about their investigation before and after the 2016 election, providing some with copies of the dossier. Simpson also acknowledged in Senate testimony in August 2017 that he spoke to reporters about Millian.

What a great source. NOT! The things in the dossier claimed to have been learned from him are not even true.
This was an attempted coup, overthrow of government. All sources and methods must be laid bare because those were the tools of treason. The American people must know them to prevent their use in the future.
Phony Russian sources. Nellie Ohr, Steele, Blumenthal, and Simpson made the whole thing up.
And so the coup members can be identified, arrested, given a fair trial
And then imprisoned or executed as WE THE PEOPLE decide.
So they’ve found their scapegoat?
wake up call for donald trump and barr
I’ve thought that too.
ANOTHER new name!! Just HOW many people were in on the COUP??
When the people who used those tools are getting away with it? Please.
...and more and more it is looking like our government is refusing to do it.
An ornery cuss, but one who should really be listened to here:
Really ties together Kushner, Browder, Winer and misinformation agents such as Bongino and the crew being put in front of Trump on Fox every night.
Steele’s source was Chuck Dolan of the Clinton campaign...PRExecutive1 and the now-arrested Igor Danchenko.
Now we know it Sergei Millian was not the source after all. Igor Danchenko of Belarus was the source. He claimed he got the information from a phone call and said he assumed, but did not know, that the voice was that of Sergei Millian.
