Thanks to a defamation lawsuit by three Russian bankers, Christopher Steele is now on record.
And what he is saying is incredible.
In a bombshell revelation, he testified that he was hired specifically to help the DNC and Hillary Clinton find information to challenge the results of the 2016 election.
From Washington Times:
In an answer to interrogatories, Mr. Steele wrote: “Fusion’s immediate client was law firm Perkins Coie. It engaged Fusion to obtain information necessary for Perkins Coie LLP to provide legal advice on the potential impact of Russian involvement on the legal validity of the outcome of the 2016 US Presidential election.
“Based on that advice, parties such as the Democratic National Committee and HFACC Inc. (also known as ‘Hillary for America’) could consider steps they would be legally entitled to take to challenge the validity of the outcome of that election.”
Now of course not only was Steele working for and being paid by the the Democrats/Hillary through Fusion GPS and the Democrats’ law firm, Perkins Coie, but he was also feeding the information to the FBI to help spy on the Trump campaign and feed an investigation against them. A piece of information which was not revealed to the FISA court when James Comey and other members of the FBI asked for warrants against Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
The defamation concerns a false story allegedly spread by Fusion GPS that the Trump team had been found to be in communication with the Russian Alfa bank.
When it began appearing on social media in 2016, some online sleuths looked at the server’s IP address and other data. They traced the server to a location outside Philadelphia that spewed marketing spam.
A Trump Organization official told The Washington Times last year that some of the spam went to Alfa Bank employees who perhaps stayed in Trump hotels. That’s how Alfa turned up in some emails.
The New York Times investigated and said the FBI basically came to the same conclusion.
But Fusion tried to push the fake story to Bruce Ohr and the Justice Department in any event.
