    New Documents Suggest The Steele Dossier Was A Deliberate Setup For Trump

    New Documents Suggest The Steele Dossier Was A Deliberate Setup For Trump

    A trove of recently released documents sheds further light on the scope and logistics of the information operation designed to sabotage an American election. Players include the press, political operatives from both parties, and law enforcement and intelligence officials. Their instrument was the Steele dossier, first introduced to the American public two years ago.

    A collection of reports compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, the dossier is now engraved in contemporary U.S. history. First marketed as bedrock evidence that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election, the dossierís legitimacy took a hit after reports showed the Hillary Clinton campaign paid for the work.

    The revelation that the dossier was used to secure a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page compromised the integrity of the investigation the FBI had opened on Page and three other Trump associates by the end of July 2016. Nonetheless, that same probe continues today as the special counsel investigation.

    The dossier plays a central role in Robert Muellerís probe. In the unredacted portions of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosensteinís memo outlining Muellerís scope are allegations that Trump adviser Paul Manafort colluded with Russian government officials interfering in the 2016 race. That claim is found in no other known document but the dossier. It is unclear whether further dossier allegations are in the redacted portions of the scope memo.

    Further, with Mueller in charge, the dossier-won warrant on Page was renewed a third, and final, time in June 2017. It expired in September, when confidential human source Stefan Halper reportedly broke off regular communications with Page.

    Anybody who has been following this story (and I mean really following it and not just swallowing the tripe that's slopped out by the liberal media) has known all of this for at least a year. The whole Mueller probe is built on the filmiest evidence at best, and is a complete fraud at worst (I'm inclined towards the latter). The frustrating part is that it seems there's nobody to hold the crooks accountable. Sessions happily recused himself and then actively turned a blind eye to the shenanigans, and it looks increasingly like the Huber and Hororwitz investigation may have been a con job set up by Sessions to protect his buddies in the FBI and DOJ. Mueller also has all the evidence locked up, making oversight virtually impossible, since any attempts to get at information, even legitimate discovery requests by defense attorneys, are stonewalled with proclamations of "Sorry, active investigation."

    Frustrating, and a little discouraging.

    Let's not forget his somehow allowing 19,000 text messages to be erased so that nobody will ever be able to examine them.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    There's your obstruction of justice.
