Skip to comments.Trump conspiracy theories beyond the Steele dossier were passed to FBI

British ex-spy Christopher Steele spread other accusations against President Trump not included in his well-publicized election dossier, according to the Justice Departments recent report on FBI misconduct.
The report by Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz shows at least three little-noticed Steele assertions that went to Crossfire Hurricane, the bureaus Trump probe headquarters. And like 13 of his dossiers accusations of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, those three didnt pan out either.
The three allegations had to do with supposed Trump campaign cash from Moscow via Azerbaijan, a Russian intelligence officer, and a purported intervention by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the next secretary of state.
Mr. Steele was hired in June 2016 by Fusion GPS with money from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clintons presidential campaign.
In September, he met with a gaggle of Washington reporters to spread his contentions that Mr. Trump was a Kremlin spy and that the Trump campaign was aiding Moscows efforts to interfere in the U.S. election.
In October, he returned to Washington for more dossier spreading to reporters, the State Department and the FBI.
He had first met an FBI handler in early July at his Orbis Business Intelligence in London. In October, he met a group of agents and an intelligence analyst in Rome as the FBI was writing a warrant to surveil Trump adviser Carter Page using Mr. Steeles evidence.
Meanwhile, Mr. Steele met with and communicated with Bruce Ohr, at the time the fourth-ranking Justice Department official, who then ferried his anti-Trump accusations to the FBI hierarchy.

Poor lil ole FBI, they were just suckered in by this scam. It could happen to anyone. Yes, it could. I mean, everyone believed it. If they didn’t, surely someone would have issued a statement or a memo letting everyone know it was a scam. Right?
I recall a weird cloak and dagger tale of derring-do in London involving a mysterious man holding a newspaper being bandied about by the McCain camp, myself. He supposedly "dispatched an aide" to London to retrieve this earth-shaking document.
So the old crank was working directly with Steele all along.
McCain had “It”

Why is Steele not in U.S. custody getting familiarized with waterboarding? Im sure there are dozens of felonies with which he could be charged.
I wonder how many other people were driven away from running for office by deep state thugs and criminals. It’s hard to believe the lowlife ‘elites’ STARTED with Trump... I suspect this culling of traditional Americans has been going on for a long time.
Why hasnt this man been charged?
What tremendous damage he has done to our country.
Could he be a mole for another power?
