It can’t surprise anyone when Hillary Clinton’s name is associated with something mischevious.
It shouldn’t, at least.
The latest tidbit involves the Steele dossier.
From The Hill:
When the annals of mistakes and abuses in the FBI’s Russia investigation are finally written, Bruce Ohr almost certainly will be the No. 1 witness, according to my sources.
The then-No. 4 Department of Justice (DOJ) official briefed both senior FBI and DOJ officials in summer 2016 about Christopher Steele’s Russia dossier, explicitly cautioning that the British intelligence operative’s work was opposition research connected to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and might be biased.
Ohr’s briefings, in July and August 2016, included the deputy director of the FBI, a top lawyer for then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and a Justice official who later would become the top deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller.
One of late Senator John McCain’s top aide’s was responsible for spreading the word about the salalcious anti-Trump Russia dossier.
From Daily Caller:
A longtime associate of late Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain provided a copy of the infamous Steele dossier to BuzzFeed News, according to an explosive court filing released Wednesday.
The Yahoo News reporter who first broke the anti-Trump, Christopher Steele dossier story has some big news everyone should know.
Not even this guy believes the story anymore.
From Fox News:
The salacious and unverified opposition research dossier cited by the FBI as its main justification to surveil a top Trump aide contains many claims that are “likely false,” according to the Yahoo News reporter who was among the first to break the news of the dossier’s existence.
Isikoff: “In broad strokes, Christopher Steele was clearly onto something, that there was a major Kremlin effort to interfere in our elections, that they were trying to help Trump’s campaign, and that there was multiple contacts between various Russian figures close to the government and various people in Trump’s campaign.“
“When you actually get into the details of the Steele dossier, the specific allegations, we have not seen the evidence to support them, and, in fact, there’s good grounds to think that some of the more sensational allegations will never be proven and are likely false.“
Christopher Steele has some news an honest media would love to report.
Steele has now revealed that twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, along with the Democrat National Committee, paid him to help challenge the validity of the 2016 election if she lost.
Hillary and the DNC presumed Russia would’ve helped Trump, which is what they would have challenged.
Wasn’t Hillary the one who slammed Trump for saying he might contest the result of the race?
From Washington Times:
British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who wrote the Democrat-financed anti-Trump dossier, said in a court case that he was hired by a Democratic law firm in preparation for Hillary Clinton challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election.
Steele wrote: “Fusion’s immediate client was law firm Perkins Coie. It engaged Fusion to obtain information necessary for Perkins Coie LLP to provide legal advice on the potential impact of Russian involvement on the legal validity of the outcome of the 2016 US Presidential election.“
“Based on that advice, parties such as the Democratic National Committee and HFACC Inc. (also known as ‘Hillary for America’) could consider steps they would be legally entitled to take to challenge the validity of the outcome of that election.“
