A court in the United Kingdom ordered British ex-spy Christopher Steele to pay thousands in damages to two Russian bankers named in the former MI6 agents dossier as having illicit financial ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Justice Warby of the Queens Bench Division of the British High Court of Justice presided over a weeklong March hearing in the defamation lawsuit brought by the owners of Russias Alfa Bank, Petr Aven, Mikhail Fridman, and German Khan, against Orbis Business Intelligence, Steeles private intelligence firm through which he conducted research in 2016 for Fusion GPS through the Perkins Coie law firm on behalf of Hillary Clintons campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
Steele made a series of allegations related to the Russians and their connection to Putin in "Memorandum 112" of his dossier which was used in the FBI's Russia investigation, and Sir Mark David John Warby ruled Wednesday that one of the assertions, that former Alfa executive and current Russian government official Oleg Govorun was used by Aven and Fridman to deliver large amounts of illicit cash to Putin when he was deputy mayor of St. Petersburg, was demonstrably false and worthy of fines of more than $22,000 that will be paid to Aven and Fridman.

He was there from the beginning. He was meeting with the Clinton team, Fusion GPS, and the FBI.
What about Trump being compensated?
Why is the piece of dirt still free with an un-ruined life?
He should pay for the Mueller investigation.
Steele may be protected by the UK gov’t, but it will cost them Prince Andrew (for starters).
Now, what are the liberals going to say to this, now that they always use prosecution as proof of guilt...
Stick it to Steele.
Invite him to the US and promise to pay half the fine. What does he have to lose?
This is huge!
Not only can nothing in the dossier be proven true, parts have now been demonstrably proven false in a court of law.
One lie makes it all a lie.
