FBI Hired Steele While He Worked for Clinton?

From my perspective, it seems that the closer we get to the truth about the Obama administration’s “investigation” into alleged Trump/Russian connections, the more the media and their friends in the Democrat Party seem to want to fuggedaboutdit.

Where’d that bogus anti-Trump dossier come from? Well, it seems that the FBI may have paid for it. Did they use our money? Who’s interfering (perhaps illegally) in presidential elections now? Who’s working with foreigners against one candidate to favor another? Talk about collusion!

Mr. [Christopher] Steele [an ex-UK spy who compiled the dossier] entered an agreement with the FBI a few weeks before the November 2016 election to investigate then-candidate Donald Trump while, at the same time, he was employed by an opposition research firm to collect information for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

CoA Institute President and CEO John Vecchione: “If a former spy who was being paid to do opposition research on a U.S. presidential nominee was also on the FBI’s payroll, there are serious concerns about the agency’s independence. We need to better understand this financial relationship to ensure the FBI was not misusing taxpayer money to interfere in a presidential election on behalf of one of the candidates.”

Knowing already what the bogus opposition research dossier claimed, and knowing its provenance, did the FBI pay Steele in order to justify having used the dossier as “evidence” to get a judge to issue a FISA warrant? In other words, did they pay him only to cauterize or sanitize the provenance, in order to obfuscate the truth? A coverup, or something more sinister?

Did Comey advise the FISA judge that the dossier came from Hillary Clinton’s campaign?

It seems that the FBI had used the phony “dossier” to get a FISA warrant to spy on Trump’s so-called associates and to dig for anything else they could use against Trump before, during, and after the election.

FBI Director James Comey has cited the dossier in some of his briefings with lawmakers in recent weeks as one of the information sources used by his bureau to bolster its probe, U.S. officials briefed on the investigation told CNN. …

The secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) granted the FBI a warrant to monitor the communications of Page, a former national security adviser on Trump’s campaign. …

Comey’s mentions of the dossier in briefings to lawmakers contrasts with other U.S. intelligence agencies who have sought to distance themselves from it.

Why? Next came the “unmasking” of those spied upon for what seem to be political reasons and then came the Obama administration’s plan to spread raw intelligence throughout the government, which then allowed the information to be leaked to the media to damage Trump and to undermine his administration, as well as to hurt his chances for reelection.

Funny how the Russian/Trump story is suddenly being dropped like a hot Russian potato. Maybe this lawsuit will provide much-needed illumination:

Watchdog group, Cause of Action (CoA) has filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia seeking records relating to the relationship between the FBI and Christopher Steele, a former British spy who was the lead author of the largely debunked Trump dossier.

  1. Steve Bannon Once Told Roger Ailes That Megyn Kelly Was “The Devil”
    “I told him then, I said, ‘She’s the devil, and she will turn on you,'” the Trump strategist reportedly said of Kelly.

    President Donald Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has opened up about the rift between his political website Breitbart & Fox News — & he blames ….. Megyn Kelly.

    In a recent interview with Politico, Bannon said, “The big rift between Breitbart & Fox was all over Megyn Kelly. She was all over Trump nonstop.”

    An analysis of the probably fake news that the FBI did NOT pay Steele after all, but (if so) probably because he could NOT VERIFY any of the crap in his Clinton-paid-for anti-Trump dossier.

    It’s really interesting in that two separate stories lately in the mainstream media have been modified but not indicated as such AND the caches and Wayback Machine versions have been deep sixed, too, so that nobody can go back to see how they originally read. One was the story about Berkeley refusing to let Coulter speak. That story, linked by many, was totally rewritten and now says that Berkeley changed their mind and she can speak (a week later, on a day when students are non-existent because they’re studying for exams, etc.). The other story is the one from Feb. where WaPo mentioned that the FBI was paying Steele for the dossier. I cannot find or access any archived versions. They show up on the Wayback Machine, but they won’t display them. Suddenly the story becomes that the FBI never paid Steele. That’s because someone is suing the FBI for information about their agreement with Steele. The media (NY Times) as I commented about yesterday, is covering for Comey and Obama and Clinton. AS USUAL.

    This is another story line that is subtly changing. NOW some articles imply that the FBI was paying Steele not to verify dirt on Trump BUT to verify allegations that the Kremlin kritters were discussing interfering in the election. See how that goes?

    They engage in sophistry: subtly deceptive reasoning or argumentation. They PRETEND there were good reasons, which they invent and then cite, but they DISGUISE their true motives–to SPY ON TRUMP AND TO WEAPONIZE THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY TO DO SO.

    • In the faux ads appearing on bus benches for the upcoming movie, Jenner is seen peeking out of a sewer drain, where the clown from It dwells, trying to lure unsuspecting children into his lair. “Tonight on Tucker Carlson: IT,” reads the text. “Based on a novel reality.” ….. ^^^^^
