"It is troubling enough that the Clinton Campaign funded Mr. Steele's work, but that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele allegations raises additional concerns about his credibility," the senators wrote to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the Russia probe, and FBI Director Christopher Wray.
"...there is substantial evidence suggesting that Mr. Steele materially misled the FBI about a key aspect of his dossier efforts, one which bears on his credibility,” the senators wrote.
Entire sections of the memorandum were redacted by the FBI on the basis that it contained classified information, though a review of the document shows the FBI redacted references to media reporting, including a Washington Post story available on the Internet.
The fact that it makes abnormal claims about trump liking to be urinated on , is not proof it isn’t true.. people have way crazier fetishes than that..
That is the only thing I have heard saying that “discredits” the dossier.. which it doesn’t.. we have no idea what ANYONES private fetishs are..
The fact that it was paid for by an anti-trump conservative group, then the contract was picked up by the DNC doesn’t discredit anything..

It is funny the conservative sites saying this stuff never site anything that has been discredited..
The dossier may be worse than just uncorroborated. In an op-ed this week, former CIA officer Daniel Hoffman wrote that the near misses in the dossier bore the mark of Russian disinformation, “accurate basic facts provided as bait to convince Americans that the fake info is real.” That’s the same intriguing theory floated by the British journalist Ben McIntyre, an expert on intelligence who has described the idea like so: “They set up an ex-MI6 guy, Chris Steele, who is a patsy, effectively, and they feed him some stuff that’s true, and some stuff that isn’t true, and some stuff that is demonstrably wrong.”

I don't think Steele was a patsy at all. He knew exactly what he was doing, and making bank from several sources at the same time.
