    How an FBI Team in Rome Gave Steele Highly Guarded Secrets

    How an FBI Team in Rome Gave Steele Highly Guarded Secrets

    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.
    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius, in case nerds need a simpler metaphor.

    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.

    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.
