For months now we have debated the contents of the famous or infamous Trump/Russia dossier.
It's salacious content got everyone's interest.
But the dossier contained much more that just those bawdy lustful stories.
It contains information on many trump contacts with russian oligarchs over several years along with information about campaign associates contacts with russian government officials.
There's a money trail laid out that Bob Mueller is apparently following.

Most here have dismissed the content as fictitious. None of it has proven fictitious. Some parts remain unverified leaving that path open for examination.
So I have a question...
Why did Devin Nunez send staffers to London this summer to seek the elusive Mr. Steele who until recently was under cover or at least out of the public eye?
If the content is so insignificant why is trump trying so hard to discredit the document and Fusion GPS in the process?
To me it seems that the document is very significant to trump and his lawyers.
Something in there is going to embarrass him and its not going to require rain gear or an X-rating.

Two Republican House Intelligence Committee staffers traveled to London earlier this summer to track down the former British intelligence operative who compiled a controversial dossier on President Donald Trump and Russia, according to three people familiar with the matter.


The previously unreported trip underscores the importance of the 35-page dossier Christopher Steele wrote last year to congressional probes into possible collusion between Moscow and the 2016 Trump campaign.


Steele was contracted during the 2016 campaign by Fusion GPS, a U.S.-based opposition research firm. Republicans have accused Fusion GPS of fostering links to Russia, and say Fusion lobbied on behalf of Kremlin interests without properly registering as a foreign agent, a claim which Fusion denies


What is clear is that the president and his allies are desperately trying to smear Fusion GPS because it investigated Donald Trump's ties to Russia,” Tracy Schmaler, a representative for Fusion GPS, said in a statement.



If there's nothing to it why do it?

In the meantime back at the ranch trump is trying to buddy up to Robert Mueller umm Bob as the president calls him.
He says he appreciates everything he's doing.

Watch out Bob, if he invites you to dinner at the Whitehouse you're doomed.

Bacause the author himself stated it was BS :

Ex-spy admits anti-Trump dossier unverified, blames Buzzfeed for publishing

And justice has taken action against those who published it :

Russian tech exec sues Buzzfeed for defamation after the website published unsubstantiated Trump dossier claiming his internet company was behind the DNC hack

Fusion GPS is also respoinsible for the fabrication of the claims that lead to the Magnitsky act :

How Russia-gate Met the Magnitsky Myth


Near the center of the current furor over Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 is a documentary that almost no one in the West has been allowed to see, a film that flips the script on the story of the late Sergei Magnitsky and his employer, hedge-fund operator William Browder.

The Russian lawyer, Natalie Veselnitskaya, who met with Trump Jr. and other advisers to Donald Trump Sr.’s campaign, represented a company that had run afoul of a U.S. investigation into money-laundering allegedly connected to the Magnitsky case and his death in a Russian prison in 2009. His death sparked a campaign spearheaded by Browder, who used his wealth and clout to lobby the U.S. Congress in 2012 to enact the Magnitsky Act to punish alleged human rights abusers in Russia. The law became what might be called the first shot in the New Cold War.

According to Browder’s narrative, companies ostensibly under his control had been hijacked by corrupt Russian officials in furtherance of a $230 million tax-fraud scheme; he then dispatched his “lawyer” Magnitsky to investigate and – after supposedly uncovering evidence of the fraud – Magnitsky blew the whistle only to be arrested by the same corrupt officials who then had him locked up in prison where he died of heart failure from physical abuse.

Despite Russian denials – and the “dog ate my homework” quality of Browder’s self-serving narrative – the dramatic tale became a cause celebre in the West. The story eventually attracted the attention of Russian filmmaker Andrei Nekrasov, a known critic of President Vladimir Putin. Nekrasov decided to produce a docu-drama that would present Browder’s narrative to a wider public. Nekrasov even said he hoped that he might recruit Browder as the narrator of the tale.

However, the project took an unexpected turn when Nekrasov’s research kept turning up contradictions to Browder’s storyline, which began to look more and more like a corporate cover story. Nekrasov discovered that a woman working in Browder’s company was the actual whistleblower and that Magnitsky – rather than a crusading lawyer – was an accountant who was implicated in the scheme.

So, the planned docudrama suddenly was transformed into a documentary with a dramatic reversal as Nekrasov struggles with what he knows will be a dangerous decision to confront Browder with what appear to be deceptions. In the film, you see Browder go from a friendly collaborator into an angry adversary who tries to bully Nekrasov into backing down.

Unverified doesn't mean not true you know.
And since January many aspects have been verified

No, he's just filed papers with the High Court in the UK saying that claims in the dossier were unverified and unsubstantiated, some of them came from unsolicited sources, and that they needed further analyzation and investigation.

But you're right, he hasn't gone on CNN and said that. Just y'know...done it in legal proceedings.

Maybe they are following the money to see who commissioned the dossier.

Yes. SOME.
Not all. Who cares about his dirty dealings with hookers true or not. That's between him and his wife.
The money trail is what is interesting

Why did Nunez send staffers if it's all not true? Why not just ignore it if it's a witch hunt?
And what do you make of trumps attempt to cozy up to Mueller? It's a move he's made before. He thinks if he compliments him he will get him on his side. Because that works on trump.

Because Slander and costing the legal system time and money for false claims is illegal correct?

And that Russia nonsense is trump trying to discredit Fusion . They work for companies around the world.
Which my story covers. Fusion denies all of that.

Got a link for that? Because I'm pretty sure the Senate judiciary committee plans on questioning him on this . As most likely Bob Mueller does to.
No plans are in order for getting him to come here. The plans now are to send people from each committee or investigation to London to talk with him.

Seems like a lot of trouble and expense for a piece of fiction.

So they waste more money on a trip to Europe? For something that's not real?

Chasing your tail.
That's what I'd call that.
Why?
