Don't Call it the Steele Dossier, Call it the Clinton Dossier

5 false or misleading statements in the media this week

Steele's dossier was at the heart of the controversial memo released last week by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., with White House approval.

The Senate document, prepared by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, Iowa Republican, said two reports came from State (apparently Mr. Winer) to Mr. Steele from Blumenthal-Shearer.

Making public a heavily redacted document, which represents a criminal referral against Steele by Sen.

That memo suggests that Steele, an ex-MI6 officer, did not tell the FBI that he met reporters in September 2016 to discuss an investigation on Donald Trump that he was doing on behalf of Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that was in turn working for the Clinton campaign and DNC.

Except, as Jonathan Chait detailed in NY magazine, the application did disclose that some of the information indicating Page may have been committing a crime came from a political source.

We know with 100 percent certainty that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC paid for the research that led to what is referred to in the media as the "Steele dossier".

In that memo, Steele stated that he received information from someone at the State Department. That Clinton associate, whose name is redacted, passed it on to another person.

The Guardian reported last week that Clinton hatchet man Cody Shearer compiled a dossier of his own prior to the election and that Steele passed some of the information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The first dossier created a long trail of sources to unlink Hillary Clinton from its origins. Our super sleuth also didn't bat an eye over sucking up information from two notorious Clinton political operators, Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer.

Shearer's involvement has raised red flags for some investigators because of his history of spreading false stories about Clinton political opponents.

The Daily Caller asked Shearer past year if he was involved in the Steele dossier. And her revelations include a mention of the Steele dossier being funneled through the State Department.

Jonathan Winer has had a career at the State Department spanning time as Obama's Special Envoy for Libya (2013-2016), Senior Advisor for MEK [Mujahideen e-Khalq] matters (resettling, protection, out of Iraq); Deputy Assistant Secretary of State (1990s) for law enforcement, including cross-border money, drugs and financial matters.

Winer did not say in that documentary that he shared Steele's information with Kerry and others at the State Department.

Davis made his case-complete with charts-saying Clinton likely would have gotten more than 330 electoral votes without Comey's letter, which informed Congress of the existence of newly discovered emails related to Clinton's private email server use, reopening the FBI's investigation into the matter. That means declassifying as much of the underlying documents as possible, Grassley wrote in his letter.
