The Steele dossier, the ultimate origin of the Mueller probe, was thoroughly discredited in the Mueller report itself. The Washington Examiner reports:
Special counsel Robert Mueller found that the two most dramatic claims in British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s now-infamous dossier likely lacked substance: that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen met with Putin operatives in Prague in the summer of 2016 and that the Russians obtained compromising material on Trump.
Mueller’s report confirmed that Cohen “had never traveled to Prague,” and referred to the existence of compromising tapes of Trump as an “unverified allegation.”
Because Steele’s dossier was used in applications for surveillance under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is inspecting FISA abuse, is reportedly focusing on Steele. Steele has declined to cooperate with the probe.
In his dossier, Steele claimed that a “Kremlin insider” provided him with a dramatic tale of Cohen’s meetings in Prague with Putin-linked operatives and foreign hackers. Cohen consistently denied the claims, Mueller noted.
The predicate for the investigation was bogus, and the investigation itself cleared President Trump. Will Steele and Fusion GPS be investigated next?
They may try to run, hide, confuse or otherwise dilute an investigation BUT I hope it is initiated AND continues to a CONCLUSION. This has gone on “TOO LONG” and it’s time to bring it to a halt. The American people HAVE THE RIGHT to see the FACTS not obscured by political camouflage.
The fact the Robert Mueller ignored suspects and did not follow the money shows how corrupt his work is and the left standing up calling for impeachment and doubling down on the lies shows they have zero moral compass!
Steele and Fusion GPS were paid millions of dollars by the Clinton and the Democrats to create this travesty. Why would either cooperate with an investigation to further discredit their work? With Steele being connected with MI6, it is beyond me why Trump offers any support to Britain without having Britain force Steele to openly come clean. The “dossier” was obviously a creation, not any report from “sources.”
It would be nice to see Steele frog walked out of the UK and taken to prison in the same manner as Julian Assange, Roger stone, Paul Manafort, Weasel Cohen, and the rest. No actual fan of any of them; however Steele deserves equal treatment under the law.
I was a very avid supporter of Fox News but since they have jumped onto that liberal bandwagon, I don’t watch it anymore. Our news system has gone to hell in a hand basket. Fox News was the only network that didn’t put out lies and propaganda. But now, you’ll have to judge for yourself. I was a follower of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, and Laura Ingraham. But since this has come up about the liberals, I’ve lost all interest in Fox. Should have discarded them when they hired Donna Brazile.
Well, youall seem to have identified the culprits, and specified the proper punishment, so all left for me to say, is AMEN.
