EXCLUSIVE: Dossier Author Christopher Steele Had Previously Undisclosed Meetings With Lawyers For DNC, Clinton Campaign
Daily Caller ^ | April 27,2020 | /Chuck Ross

Posted on 04/27/2020 6:08:13 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Christopher Steele shed new light on his work for the Clinton campaign and DNC, revealing in testimony last month that he met with two lawyers for the Democrats as part of his investigation into Donald Trump.

Steele met with Perkins Coie partners Michael Sussmann and Marc Elias, he testified.

Steele said that Sussmann provided him with the now-debunked tip that a Russian bank had a secret communications channel with the Trump Organization.

awyer representing the DNC and Clinton campaign provided Christopher Steele with information in 2016 regarding an alleged secret communications channel between the Trump Organization and a Russian bank, the former spy told a British court last month.

That now-debunked tip, from Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann, set off a chain of events that led to Steele publishing a Sept. 14, 2016 memo accusing the founders of the bank, Alfa Bank, of having “illicit” ties to Vladimir Putin. A week after Steele wrote that memo, he had another meeting with Sussmann’s colleague, Marc Elias.

Steele disclosed the previously unreported meetings with Sussmann and Elias during testimony in a defamation lawsuit filed against him by the Alfa Bank founders, according to a court transcript obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Steele’s testimony about Sussmann and Elias provides insight into how deeply involved the two lawyers were in the Trump investigation, and suggests they helped shape Steele’s investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Perkins Coie, Sussmann and Elias did not respond to requests for comment for this story.

Elias, who served as general counsel for the Clinton campaign, hired Fusion GPS in April 2016 to investigate Donald Trump. Fusion GPS in turn picked Steele, a former MI6 officer, in June 2016 to investigate Trump’s possible ties to Russia.

Since he refuses to testify, his severed head should be found stashed in the bowl of his own toilet. Naturally, I mean that in the nicest possible way.

The only Indictment has been of a member of the Public supposedly threatening Adam Schiff.

The Republicans in the Senate have done everything they can to protect Biden and hide the Ukraine cash train.

Nothing will be done. Ohr still works at the DoJ!

Wray wants all the power in the FBi.

He’s outside the USA, so whoever happens to get to him would be very difficult to prosecute in the USA

Government can NOT police itself. It just can't. It's truly a form of organized crime.

Thanks, I thought it wise to leave out the part about [and then 'Civ redacted his message, *again*] because it was too disturbing.

Prosecuting him would damage relations with our "ally" the UK, but snuffing the bastard wouldn't.

Or he could trip and fall backward into oncoming bullets that just happened to be going by.

So basically, everything they accused Trump of doing, they were doing.
