Newly released transcripts of Fusion GPS Glen Simpson reveal another shocker; The Dossier is nothing more than Russian propaganda passed to Steele, passed to Simpspn without any verification whatsoever.

In fact, this revelation confirms not only Simpson has nothing to back up
the "dossier"neither did Christopher Steele. We learn by Simpson's own
testimony that he never went to Russia, and asked by intel panel
staff if he verified Steele’s “sources in Russia” or corroborated their
information, Simpson said he’s never been to Russia himself and couldn’t
“evaluate the credibility of someone on the other side of the [Atlantic]"
and nor could he confirm that Steele actually spoke directly with any
of his Russian sources!


Virtually all of the credibility of the so-called Steele dossier — and the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and investigations it spawned — hinges on Christopher Steele’s vaunted reputation as a former British intelligence agent who spied on Moscow and still maintains a network of sources inside the Kremlin. But now we are finding out from newly released transcripts that he never even set foot inside Russia to compile his dossier, and that he relied instead on an ex-journalist-turned-p.r. consultant to do much of his investigating there. In fact, this non-intelligence figure may be his main “Russian source” of information.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) asked Steele’s Clinton-paid handler Glenn Simpson, during the House Intelligence Committee’s Nov. 14 closed-door hearing, if Steele had gone “to Russia as part of this project,” to which Simpson replied, “No, sir.” Steele, at the time he compiled the dossier, hadn’t been back to Russia in 17 years. So, Gowdy pressed, “How was he able to accumulate information in Russia if he didn’t go?” Simpson claimed that Steele ran a “network of subsources or subcontractors” who traveled around Russia and gathered information for him. But it turns out the primary subcontractor worked not for Steele but for Simpson at Washington-based Fusion GPS, and he contributed key material for the investigation of Trump underwritten by the Clinton campaign.

His name is Edward Baumgartner, a British national who speaks fluent Russian and runs a p.r. shop out of London (and who spent 2016 tweeting his forceful opposition to Trump’s candidacy). While Baumgartner was working on the dossier, he was also working for Simpson on another case to smear an anti-Putin whistleblower in an effort to help Putin-tied company Prevezon defend itself against US charges of money laundering. During that contract, which ran through October 2016, Baumgartner worked closely in Moscow with the Russian lawyer who lobbied Donald Trump Jr. at a now-infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 to help lift US sanctions on Russia. Her talking points were written by Simpson, who also dealt directly with the lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya.

nypost.com...

Fortunately, this can be backed with actual testimony before the
House Intel Comittee, they published Simpson's transcripts Friday.
So at this point there is no dispute, the dossier is completely
unverified, and discredited! But yet it was used to obtain a
FISA warrant? Release The Memo!

House Intel Comittee Press Release:
intelligence.house.gov...

Glen Simpson Transcrpt November 8th, 2017

docs.house.gov...

Transcrpt November 14th, 2017

docs.house.gov...

So we now have a new name, one player in this plot
that has been for the large part hidden away. What do
we know about Edward Baumgartner; how close are his
ties to Putiin? He was closely involved with the Russian
lawyer Veselnitskya who now says his Intel is garbage.

Russian Lawyer Says Dossier Is Rumor

There seems to one constant in the "Russian" collusion
story, and that is the entire thing is unsubstantiated
and fast becoming evidence that points to a crime
of epic purple rations committed by the past Administration,
With the help of some cleverly disguised alligators.

Please feel free to dig in here, those of you who
like to investigate; what more might we find out about
Baumgartner and his obvious deep ties to Russian subversives!

That's why you rushed in so quick
with your great insight?

Not my story!
intelligence.house.gov...
Your still buying that Russian toilet paper
in bulk? Don't look now but some of it might
have got stuck behind you hanging out a bit.
Nasty stuff the ole Russian conspiracy tried and
true tactics so many keep falling for.

And I am sure you did not even have time to
read Simpson's Transcript. Way to go silly!

Oh, and by the way, what Russian rag are you reading?
What are your sources for believing the "dirty rumors" dossier?

Did you read the article in the OP?

Steele himself never went to russia, a fact simpson admitted in his testimony.

Instead the article says he relied on a PR guy with no intel experience, who had connections to russia because he was working with putin allies to smear an anti putin activist.

So super spy Steele actually was just repeating what a trump hater PR guy from fusion who had worked on behalf of Putin was telling him.

I think "Christopher Steele" as they are using "Him" isn't the real guy.

The whole thing was concocted to "produce" the "Dossier".

We now know there was enough money to make it all as "Real" as possible.

But it is like an old James Bond movie and very entertaining !

Echo chamber indeed.

Remember this thread.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Although the names of the companies are redacted, the fisa courts issued a scathing report that the FBI was abusing 702's by allowing private companies to view information from fisa warranted surveillance.

Now imagine if Fusion was one of those groups, which seems likely.

This is the situation that could have developed.

The FBI gives fusion access to things they found on surveillance, such as Trump team members talking to russians, or russians talking about trump.

Fusion then uses that info to elaborate, and make the claims that will become the dossier.

They hire super spy Steele, who gets much of his info from an employee of fusion, who alos happened to have just been working for pro putin interests.

The Fbi then takes the info steele gave them, which in effect is just stories based on the info that the fbi leaked to fusion in the first place, and acts like this is somehow independent confirmation of the facts they already had, and then uses this dossier for fisa warrants against trumps team.

I look forward to reading the memo, and hopefully the unredacted Fisa april document and the original two fisa applications for carter page to see proof of if this or something similar happened, or if it was all legit.

Yeah Steele was pretty pissed when he got dragged into the light and had to explain himself. Thanks Buzzfeed for that btw. Should have stayed in the shadows because now arkancide is on the menu.

I think this part might be well worth digging into.

Literally, the dossier is Russian do doo.

And it is no surprise that Hiilary Clinton
paid for this. I also wonder who the "one
Person who has already died" is?

Could they be another tally in
The Clinton Body Count?

I'm guessing here, but could this
be another reason why in the
Podesta leaks there was that reference
to them all hangin if Trump won?

The FBI should have been smarter than this,
unless it was intentional malfeasance?

Yep you are right on the money.

Here is a post I put up on a different thread last night.

This is a link to a video of an ex Federal prosecutor detailing exactly what happened with the Fisa courts april 2016 document they released.

dailycaller.com...

Here is my summary.

Apparently Admiral Rogers was told by someone in 2015 that the FBI was abusing 702's with the Fisa court. They were getting warrants on foreign people (as is allowed) that was catching ameircans in incidental ways.

The FBI was then sharing that info with private companies (he thinks Fusion and Crowdstrike were among them) some of which were connected to the democrats.

This is criminal and highly unethical, so Rogers who was the head of the NSA launches an audit of the FBI's use of the 702's (whihc is the process for revealing info on these Fisa surveillances).

Sure enough rogers finds out the FBI under Obama have been abusing this. SO first he goes straight to the Fisa courts and lets them knoiw they have been lied to and the FBI is abusing this surveillance system.

The Fisa court is angry, and releases the April 2016 document that I mentioned above.

It outlines systemic abuse of the Fisa system by Obamas FBI.

Meanwhile, Rogers has learned that among those being spied on and having their info leaked to private comapanies was Trump team mebers.

SO after trump win the election, On November 17 2016 Rogers meets with Trump at Trump tower and tells him what happened.

Trump the next day orders his team out of trump tower and to New Jersey where he has a golf resort, and then proceeds to have Trump tower totally swept for bugs.

This is why Trump tweeted about Obama wiretapping him.

After Rogers meets with Trump, Brennan and another tell obama to fire Rogers, but Obama declinees knowing it wont make a difference because he has already blew the whistle, and doesnt want to bring more attention to it.

And so the process has been slow with Nunes receiving the documents that prove this abuse of the fisa system, and now starting to get it circulated more.

The other part I found interesting is this former prosecutor commenting on how the APril 2016 document from the fisa court outlining the systemic abuse under Obama is now a public document, but the media is basically being silent on it.

What is curious, that when Feinstien leaked the partial
Transcript, I am thinking that was a ruse to,keep
people from looking at the actual release.

Like a decoy of sorts. Very sneaky!

Sneaky Diane, well Trump nailed that one right.

Truer words were never spoken, brother. And unfortunately it's gonna get a HELL of a lot worse for them before it get's better. And when I say worse, I'm talking about orders of magnitude here. If it actually ever does get better for them.

Thank you for putting that link up,here, to put
it bluntly this is starting to look very very bad
for the FBI.

Crowdstrike was the only verification that Russia was even involved.

The DNC refused to let the FBI examine the servers!
