Looks like a lot of people are still latching on that this whole story was an elaborate 4chan hoax. But let's take a closer look at Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier that was leaked a few days ago.


A Cambridge graduate, Steele was one of the more eminent Russia specialists for the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). The Guardian understands that he focused on Soviet affairs after joining the agency, and spent two years living in Moscow in the early 1990s.


Mr. Steel also uncovered that the Litvinenko poisoning case in 2006 was a Russian Government hit job.


When the agency was plunged into panic over the poisoning of its agent Alexander Litvinenko in 2006, the then chief, Sir John Scarlett, needed a trusted senior officer to plot a way through the minefield ahead – so he turned to Steele. It was Steele, sources say, who correctly and quickly realised that Litvinenko’s death was a Russian state “hit”.


Mr. Steele has previously worked with the US Government , most recently he worked with them on the FIFA corruption case.


The Reuters news agency, citing former British intelligence officials, reports that Steele supplied the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) with information on corruption at Fifa, international soccer's governing body.

It was his work on corruption in football that lent credence to his reporting on Trump's entanglements in Russia, US officials said on Wednesday.


The Guardian

So looks like the author of the Dossier has a lot of credibility which just exposes the disinformation campaign that 4chan and a lot of other sites have been running to desperately discredit this news.

Today also Joe Biden verified that Trump had been briefed about this Dossier, which makes Trump and his cronies the liars and verifies CNN's report.


The intelligence leaders responded by saying, "Well, we feel obliged to tell you, Mr. President, because you may hear about it. We're going to tell (Trump)," Biden said.



Director of National Intelligence James Clapper released a statement Wednesday night essentially confirming that the report had been included in intelligence briefings to Trump and Obama. Earlier in the day, Trump officials denied they had ever been told about the dossier.

If Trump has nothing to hide and he has nothing to do with the Russians why does he feel the need to lie his butt off about not having been briefed about this? His compulsive lying just gives more legs to this story. When you add all the parts this story becomes more and more credible.

Paul Manafort, which was Trump's campaign manager until he was forced to resign when news broke about him receiving payments from the Puppet Ukrainian government put in power by Putin and Co.

Carter Page. Trump's foreign policy advisor. Who is also the founder and managing partner of Global Energy Capital, a New York investment fund and consulting firm specializing in the Russian and Central Asian oil and gas business.

The Rex Tillerson pick for SOS, CEO of Exxon which had a 500$ Billion Dollar deal frozen as a result of the Obama sanctions placed on Russia. Tillerson received the Russian Order of Friendship in 2013.

We're living in dangerous times folks, yesterday we witnessed a banana republic style press conference from Trump which included him intimidating and silencing a major news organization based on his own made up lies and of course the room full of his paid staffers cheered him on.

The scariest part of all is that right after that, he took a question from Breitbart about what reforms he recommended for the news industry.

...and who are these unnamed sources, again??? What, other than agenda, makes them so trustworthy, and believable?

Don't bother with these right wingers. It's all fake news for them if it doesn't come from comrade Trump or Alex Jones.

Curiously, I'm one of the further right people on this site, voted for DJT, and consider Alex Jones to be a jackass with zero credibility... Try again.

you'd think a REAL conspiracy theorist would be dying to delve into this. Russian conspiracy theorists, I would imagine, could potentially lose their lives delving into this.

but, nope, ours are busy with pizzagate. yay.

as to the op, wouldn't surprise me in the least if this whole thing were true.

the rich will get richer...

Vice President Joe Biden's son sits on the board of the Ukraine's largest oil and gas exploration and production corporation. Biden wouldn't have any reason to piss and moan about the Russians, or make up things about them... would he?


It's 2016, perhaps it's time to tuck them away and zip up our pants and let AMERICA receive the Russian Order of Friendship instead of continuing this ludicrous size contest with them.

Other famous Cambridge spy graduates include Anthony Blunt,Guy Burgess,John Cairncross and Kim Philby unfortunately they all worked for Russia,this guy was given a story then told to go find the evidence which just happens to be a fantasy worthy of Charlie Sheen let alone Donald Trump--sorry unsubstantiated tabloid rubbish.

The author of the Dossier helped take down FIFA and concluded that the Litvinenko poisoning in 2006 was a Russian hit job. Why would he put everything on the line and fake this?

Trump is already lying his ass off about not having been briefed on it...So that makes this even more credible

Maybe instead of questioning the credibility of the MI6 agent, why aren't you wondering why Trump continues to lie at every opportunity and why he is still refusing to release his taxes?

CNN published a story saying that Trump had been briefed on the dossier, during his press conference Trump accused CNN of being fake news. Turns out both Clapper and Biden have confirmed that Trump was indeed briefed on the dossier.

Why did he lie and say he hadn't been briefed? Perhaps he has something to hide?

Poor Liberals, the Trump Presidency is coming.

And how can this be? For he is the Kwisatz Haderach!

This all seems very farfetched.

However... I've heard that this report was issued last summer. That is curious, given 4chan's alleged involvement.

e: For example - there's no Christopher Steele mentioned here: i.imgur.com...

Even if the tiniest bit of these ridiculous accusations (which have been going for far to long now. Trump won in November people) are true, it still doesn't change the fact that he was/is the better candidate.

But I'm European, I have no stake in this, so have at it. We have a saying here which goes something like: "U don't look a gifted horse in the mouth". Trump is your gifted horse, or donkey I should say. He's still infinitely better than Killary.

How good or thorough can the guy have been...if he was completely wrong about Michael Cohen being in Prague?
It would've been so easy to verify...but he didn't.

The whole report was a sloppy, slapped-together, smear piece commissioned by an opposing candidate.
Completely unprofessional.

Well if Putin was planning on using this to blackmail Trump, looks like it backfired !!

He can't expose something that's already been published


Now what?

Yeah, this whole ridiculous exercise of "exposing Trump" was about as productive and stimulating as exposing yourself in an empty room while standing in front of a mirror.

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when he was briefed with that intel.

YEA !!! Here's to 4 years of checking thru perverted YouTube videos to look for evidence of CGI !!
Just what we all REALLY REALLY want to do with our time /s
