    Buried in IG Report: How an FBI Team in Rome Gave Steele Highly Guarded Secrets

    A month before the 2016 presidential election, the FBI met Christopher Steele in Rome and apparently unlawfully shared with the foreign opposition researcher some of the bureau’s most closely held secrets, according to unpublicized disclosures in the recent Justice Department Inspector General report on abuses of federal surveillance powers.

    What’s more, Steele, the former British spy who compiled the “dossier” of conspiracy theories for the Hillary Clinton campaign, was promised $15,000 to attend the briefing by FBI agents eager to maintain his cooperation in their Trump-Russia collusion investigation codenamed Crossfire Hurricane.

    That investigation was so closely guarded that only a handful of top officials and agents at the FBI were allowed to know about it.

    The report by Inspector General Michael Horowitz details how a team of FBI agents in early October 2016 shared with Steele extensive classified materials, just weeks before the bureau cut off ties with him for leaking his own research to the media. The secrets included foreign intelligence information still considered so sensitive that the IG’s report refers to it even now only as coming from a “Friendly Foreign Government.” In fact, this is a reference to Australia. That country’s ambassador to Britain sent the United States a tip about loose talk by junior Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. The FBI has described that as the predicate for its Trump-Russia investigation. .....

    "Neighbor, how long has it been since you’ve had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili?”

    A lot of people still don't know that Steele wasn't the originator of the information in his "dossier", he was the laundry man to give the FBI an ostensibly legal reason to use intelligence product they otherwise had no legal reason to use.

      People can't yet accept that the FBI was that politicised, that someone directed them to be so criminally politicised. Give it time.

        Wait, what? The FBI bootstrapped their investigation by helping Steele to create the dossier, then used the dossier to get the false FISA warrants and create the whole Trump scandal?

        How are these people not in prison yet? Or hung for treason? This whole thing is tantamount to an attempted coup by the Democrats.

              Schumer is medium fry at best.

                It's tied to Obama, the Clintons, a number of prominent Congressmen (both Republican and Democrat), current and former heads of federal intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and many of the "rank and file". Lots of very powerful people are involved who are more than capable of protecting themselves. "Who watches the watchmen?" indeed.

                  What is wrong with you guys that you buy into all these crazy theories? Previously you guys have claimed that everything in the Steele dossier was false. Now it's all from the FBI? Does that mean you've given up on the claim it's all false?

                  And what's with the obsession with Steele? His actions played a minor role at best in the course of events, yet you conspiracy-mongers seem to go back to it again and again.

                      I don't believe anybody ever claimed that it was "all false". What was false, primarily, were the salacious claims about Trump and any attempts to tie him directly to Russian influence.

                      Why are you so ignorant?

                      If you read the Weissmann/Mueller report carefully one aspect stands out strongly; the Mueller investigation was fully committed to The Steele Dossier. An inordinate amount of the report is focused on justifying their investigative validity and purpose in looking at the claims within the Steele Dossier.

                      Repeatedly, the investigative unit references their mandate based around the Steele Dossier, and the mid-summer 2016 origin of the FBI counterintelligence operation.

                      Why? Why was/is Crossfire Hurricane (July ’16) and the Steele Dossier (Oct. ’16) so important to the principle intelligence apparatus, and the Mueller team (’17, ’18, ’19)?

                      I believe former NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers has told us the answer. In early 2016 Rogers caught on to a massive and pre-existing weaponization of government surveillance and the use of collected NSA metadata for political spy operations. Everything, that comes AFTER March 2016 is one big blanket cover-up operation….. ALL OF IT.

                      The Russian election interference narrative; the use of Joseph Mifsud, Stefan Halper, the London and Australian embassy personnel; Erika Thompson, Alexander Downer, U.S. DIA officials; everything around Crossfire Hurricane; and everything after to include the construct of the Steele Dossier; all of it was needed for the creation of an ‘after-the-fact‘ plausible justification to cover-up what Mike Rogers discovered in early 2016, AND the downstream unmasked records that existed in the Obama White House SCIF.

                      Fusion GPS was not hired in April 2016 to research Donald Trump. The intelligence community was already doing surveillance and spy operations. They already knew everything about the Trump campaign. The Obama intelligence community needed Fusion GPS to give them a justification for pre-existing surveillance and spy operations.

                      That’s why the FBI, and later the Mueller team, are so strongly committed to, and defending, the formation of the Steele Dossier and its dubious content.

                        Do you not get that these right-wing nut-house sites just write straight-out fiction? All of the above is just plain made up.

                        I can't get over how gullible you are.

                          Follow the link, kiddo, and read the WHOLE article. Everything is throughly documented with images of original documents and links to primary sources.

                          But nice attempt at a genetic fallacy. I can't even give you credit for the effort because it was so lazy.

                            From the IG's Report on his investigation, which has not been disputed. The same report the article from CP's link cited, If you actually knew what citations were you'd understand it is not a crazy theory. but what can we expect of someone who cites Wikipedia as a scholarly source

                              Don't be a dope. It does't say anything about the FBI helping Steele create the dossier. The FBI didn't get the info about Papadopolous from Steele, they got it from Australia, and it was that info which was used to open the investigation, not the dossier.
                              How are these people not in prison yet? Or hung for treason? This whole thing is tantamount to an attempted coup by the Democrats.
                              The only coup is the one taking place right now by the President and his corrupt minnions who are trying to overthrow the very government you elected them to serve.
