Oh the Grassley and nunes memo are just all lies.

There is no way any of it could be true, its all just garbage.

Oh wait, whats that. a member of Obamas state department has now admitted to now only meeting with steele about the dossier and passing that info to John Kerry (the sec. of State), but also admitted that he gave steele info from Hillary operative Sid Blumenthal that came from another clinton operative Cody Shearer that Steele took to the FBI?


In the summer of 2016, Steele told me that he had learned of disturbing information regarding possible ties between Donald Trump, his campaign and senior Russian officials. He did not provide details but made clear the information involved “active measures,” a Soviet intelligence term for propaganda and related activities to influence events in other countries.

In September 2016, Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier.” Steele’s sources suggested that the Kremlin not only had been behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign but also had compromised Trump and developed ties with his associates and campaign.

I was allowed to review, but not to keep, a copy of these reports to enable me to alert the State Department. I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.

In late September, I spoke with an old friend, Sidney Blumenthal, whom I met 30 years ago when I was investigating the Iran-contra affair for then-Sen. Kerry and Blumenthal was a reporter at The Post. At the time, Russian hacking was at the front and center in the 2016 presidential campaign. The emails of Blumenthal, who had a long association with Bill and Hillary Clinton, had been hacked in 2013 through a Russian server.

While talking about that hacking, Blumenthal and I discussed Steele’s reports. He showed me notes gathered by a journalist I did not know, Cody Shearer, that alleged the Russians had compromising information on Trump of a sexual and financial nature.

What struck me was how some of the material echoed Steele’s but appeared to involve different sources.

On my own, I shared a copy of these notes with Steele, to ask for his professional reaction. He told me it was potentially “collateral” information. I asked him what that meant. He said that it was similar but separate from the information he had gathered from his sources. I agreed to let him keep a copy of the Shearer notes.

Given that I had not worked with Shearer and knew that he was not a professional intelligence officer, I did not mention or share his notes with anyone at the State Department. I did not expect them to be shared with anyone in the U.S. government.

But I learned later that Steele did share them — with the FBI, after the FBI asked him to provide everything he had on allegations relating to Trump, his campaign and Russian interference in U.S. elections.

For those of y9ou that dont know, Shearer and Blumenthal are known clinton Operatoves that are considered some of the shadiest characters in Washington.

Heres a little tidbit.


Shearer was last in the news in 2015, when a bombshell ProPublica report on hacked emails from longtime Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal revealed that the longtime Clinton confidant and aide was running a “secret spy network” network feeding Clinton information on, among other things, Benghazi and Libya while she was secretary of State. Recall that Blumenthal is a known liar and rumormonger so disreputable that the Obama White House put their foot down and nixed her attempt Blumenthal at the State Department.

Well it turns out Grassleys memo was right about this.

Steele was taking dirt from hillarys own team that was funneled through Obamas state department and giving ot top the FBI that was using it for the investigation into trump.

100% proven, confirmed by the state department member that did it.

Are people starting to see how corrupt this whole investigation is? Its not enough that Hillarys team was paying for the dossier, but they were actually feeding steele info through the state dept to be included in his statements to the fbi.

While I’m personally loving the drip drip of dem corruption I can’t say people like you or I am surprised by it. Maybe this slow death will actually open the more hardend Dems eyes to their parties corruption.

If there was even a fraction of this type of evidence of Russian collusion I would have long been pissed about it. Where are there people who claim to be Liberltarians outrage at this obvious corruption?

Here are 4 big takeaways from this.

1. Steele was discussing the dossier with state dept people that seemingly were not involved in the investigation in any way, and that made its way to John Kerry.

2. This was clearly a bad choice, as this state dept member directly shared this evidence with Blumenthal, a Hillary operative.

3. Blumenthal passed along dirt from HIllarys operative about trump to this state dept official, presumably knowing it was likely to get to steele having been discussing this officials relationship with steele and discussion of steeles dossier.

4. Sure enough, this stae dept official gives steele hillarys teams dirt, which he then in turn gives to the FBI for use in their investigation.

Now Winer says hiw conversation with Blumenthal occurred in late september, which means it is likely that he gave Steele this info before the dossier was used in October 2016 to get a fisa warrant on Page.

This corruption in unreal.

IT shows that Grassley was right about this, which although it doesnt prove the rest of the claims in the memo, does show that they were correct about this bombshell.

I want to know, did Steele let the FBI what parts of his evidence came from Hillarys team?

If he didnt, this is more proof that he has no credibility, which means if his credibility was the main reason for a fisa warrant, it was horrible flawed.

If he did tell the fbi, did the fbi use any of this info in a fisa warrant or elsewhere, and did they disclose the source?

Bottom line; the FBI is using dirt directly from Hillarys team to investigate trump, and that is unbelievably shady.

Well you wouldnt know it by watching the main stream media.

They are to busy fighting against transparency, and saying anyone with concerns about this are destroying the country.

Which raises the question; how many of our institutions are cheering for deep state corruption to take down a duly elected President?

How many institutions are allowed, legally, to be infiltrated by the CIA?

The "free press" died in 2004.

How will this be swept under the rug?

Will it be that the Trump hating Washington Post is actually an alt right site?

Or how about who cares because trump is evil and guilty and so all of this is justified?

My monies on Winer was acting alone so no big deal, and shearers and blumenthals biases dont matter; their evidence was good.

Of course, the tried and true tactic of just ignoring it and screaming about some dumb tweet trump makes is always a winner.

I can just see the latest revelations ripping apart the Democratic Schiff Memo after it's published.

The White House says the Dem Memo was so poorly written, and divulged so many secrets, that a coverletter from the Intelligence Community will precede it's release.

So: Hill hires a lawyer who hires a firm who hires Steele, so she's sufficiently isolated.
Steele gets information from Clinton toadies and allegedly Russians
One of those toadies starts his own "investigation"
The two dossiers are both presented to the press, the FBI, friendly State Dept officials, and friendly R pols like McCain, etc
FBI uses the news to validate the dossier
Wife of senior Justice official is suddenly hired by FusionGPS who hired Steele
He meets with Steele
FBI obtains FISA warrant on basis of a dossier
News uses existence of investigation as basis of "Russian collusion" conspiracy
FBI director that Dems and DAG demand to be fired is fired
Investigation spawns Special Council
News recently trots out second dossier to prop up and legitimize the first

It smells like there was collusion somewhere around here, but I'm sure I'm missing all the "context" that makes this smell less like an outhouse

I can’t for the life understand how every red blooded American is not pissed about this. How is there not protesting in the streets calling for these criminals to be brought to justice.... all these movements against police corruption and here we have it for real at the highest levels of government!!

But for some people it’s about left and right and not about real justice. While I am guilty of partisan politics myself this # effects both sides of the isle. People should be pissed damnit.

You know they really needed Hillary to win. I am just amazed that Trump lived through the campaign.

It seemed only yesterday that Blumenthal was defending Bill Clinton in court by claiming that Monica Lewinsky was a stalker. Times change, but I guess not that much.

Everybody remotely knowledgeable about Washington knows that Blumenthal is a snake that will spread lies and attack innocent people for the Clintons.

Yet this state dpet employee Winer was good chums with him, told him details of steeles dossier, and took dirt from Blumenthal and passed it to steele, knowing all the while Blumenthals MO for spreading lies to attack Clintons opponents.

Then winer acts like "Aww shucks!" when he finds out that the dirt from blumenthal he spread to Steele ended up being used by the FBI.

Its ludicrous.

He is a long-time clinton bag man, that's for sure. I remember Christopher Hitchens testifying against him, saying that Blumenthal lied on his deposition, and the left turned on Hitchens.

At any rate, politics seems to come before principle for Blumenthal.

Nunes has a memo in the works that will highlight the abuse of the Obama State Department. This right there fits in very well. The Democrats and Schiffty opened the Pandoras Box and now it can't be closed again. They are blinded by the hate for everything Trump did that they are exposing the shady deeds that they committed in the process. It's like watching a firemen trying to put out a fire with gasoline. These people are STUPID!
