Steele’s link to Talbott, which has not previously been revealed, shows the lengths to which Steele went to disseminate the fruits of his Trump investigation, which started in June 2016 when he was hired by Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm hired by the DNC and Clinton campaign. The Steele document was revealed on Tuesday in a lawsuit filed by three Russian bankers who have sued Steele in the U.K. and U.S. over the dossier
“It would be very clear that there were people within the FBI and DOJ that knew well and good before they went to the FISA Court that Christopher Steele and others were up to some really bad and nefarious activity,”

Looks like the real people colluding with Russia are not who the MSM wants us to know !!
Less publicly, Mr Shearer maintained ties with the Clinton White House in the 1990s, and helped provide information to Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State.
The Guardian published an article that said Mr. Shearer wrote his own Russia dossier on Mr. Trump. It said Mr. Steele handed it to the FBI in October 2016. At that time, Mr. Steele was trying to persuade the FBI to investigate Mr. Trump. He had supplied the bureau with his dossier, which suggests a series of unverified crimes by Mr. Trump and his aides. The FBI has not confirmed any of the charges. If The Guardian’s report is accurate, it means the FBI has been working off of two Democratic Party anti-Trump papers on Mr. Trump. The Guardian has close ties to Mr. Steele, who faces a libel lawsuit in London for reporting that a Russian entrepreneur hacked Democratic Party computers.
The political activist grew close to the Clintons through family connections. His brother-in-law, Strobe Talbott, became friends with Bill Clinton while they were students at Oxford, and later served as special adviser to the Secretary of State during the Clinton administration.
Cody Shearer is the son of Clinton-connected celebrity gossip columnist Lloyd Shearer, a.k.a., Walter Scott, author of “Walter Scott’s Personality Parade” in that Parade magazine that came with the Sunday paper. From Lloyd Shearer’s 1991 obituary in the NYT:
Cody Shearer’s beautiful twin sister Brooke, who died in 2009, was a “private investigator” and a Clinton campaign aide. From her 2009 L.A. Times obituary:
The former Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) operative Sergei Tretyakov said that SVR considered Talbott a source of intelligence information and classified him as “a special unofficial contact,” even though “he was not a Russian spy.”

And all this is coming out from one of the "Mueller" cases !!!
Boomerang coming back as a fireship 😎⚔
According to the court filing, Steele told a court in the United Kingdom on Aug. 1 that he provided Strobe Talbott, the Clinton insider, with anti-Trump research because of his position on the Foreign Affairs Policy Board, an independent advisory board set up in 2011 by then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton.
"James Comey just totally exposed his partisan stance by urging his fellow Democrats to take back the White House in 2020," the president tweeted. "In other words, he is and has been a Democrat. Comey had no right heading the FBI at any time, but especially after his mind exploded!"
It is unclear what the president meant by saying Comey's "mind exploded."

The best part about the Steele dossier is it quite literally took a LARP from one of the other back channels of the internet, and put it in the document (read 4Chan, specifically /pol/) as truth. Having actually read the dossier myself 2 years ago, and worked with Fortune 20 companies for information gathering, the quality of it is so bad that if I were to put that infront of my former boss I would have been out right fired.
There is a reason why the his two person firm was failing and he was willing to jump on that with the horribly sourced , horribly formatted, and horrible checked info. He was desperate for work and desperate to get it out the door with as much fluff as possible. Then he was so desperate for Hillary to win, because if she did, none of his subpar work would see the light of day again.
