Tick Tock

By Patrick Van Roy On July 11th, 2020

The never ending web of corruption by the Obama Administration gets bigger and stickier than ever.

It was in London that the whole Russia collusion caper began four years ago, so it seems only fitting that as the discredited probe enters its final phase that damning new evidence of the FBI’s failures would emerge back in England.

This week when a British judge ruled against the former FBI human source Christopher Steele, the decision delivered more than an order for the former spy’s company to pay damages to two Russian businessmen maligned by his dossier.

It also introduced new incontrovertible evidence that bolsters Attorney General William Barr’s and U.S. Attorney John Durham’s probe into whether the FBI engaged in misconduct and criminally deceived the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to win permission to spy on the Trump campaign.

Buried in Justice Mark Warby’s ruling were several new pieces of evidence that answer long lingering questions about just what the FBI knew, and when it knew it.

Warby’s lengthy ruling unearthed a gem of new evidence to answer the question: Steele kept his own notes of what he told FBI agents the first time he met them on July 5, 2016 in London to discuss his anti-Trump Russia research.

And, Warby revealed, the notes make clear that Steele told his FBI handlers from the get-go that the dossier’s “ultimate client were (sic) the leadership of the Clinton presidential campaign.”

So the FBI knew immediately that the dossier it used to justify a FISA warrant targeting the Trump campaign was a political opposition research product designed to help Clinton defeat her Republican opponent and did not divulge the connection.

and there is more.

The British evidence continues, noting that Steele openly admitted he was leaking to the news media while working for the FBI.

“Mr Steele admits briefing journalists about Orbis’ work, and the documentary evidence and cross-examination make it clear that, in and after late September 2016 he was heavily and enthusiastically involved in doing so,” the judge wrote.

Remarkably, one of the media outlets that Steele talked with was used by the FBI in the FISA warrant as independent corroboration for his dossier when in fact it was circular reporting.

Finally, Steele admitted in the court proceedings that he did little to verify information he got from sources and gave to the FBI unfiltered and unvetted. In fact, the court dissected just one of the many memos that made up Steele’s dossier and found five factually inaccurate, unverified statements.

So there it is admitted to, and proven FACT that the Steele Dossier was not only FAKE disinformation acquired by Steele from the Russian’s, but proof that the FBI knew the information was fake and presented it as evidence to the FISA Court.

  1. “So there it is admitted to, and proven FACT that the Steele Dossier was not only FAKE disinformation acquired by Steele from the Russian’s, but proof that the FBI knew the information was fake and presented it as evidence to the FISA Court.”

    Where is that admitted to?

  2. Two words, Natalia Veselnitskaya

  3. Its all irrelevent anyway. Even if these tedious never ending investigations were to lead to the succesful prosecution and conviction of hundreds of Obama era officials and politicians, President Biden could just instantly pardon them all and Patrick would consider that a perfectly valid application of Presidential authority and the rule of law.

  4. The article is by the discredited John Solomon. It is unwise to believe anything he writes.

  5. NEW: A federal judge in NY – acting quickly on his own and without being asked by either side — has ordered attorneys for President Trump and Manhattan D.A. Cy Vance to inform the court by next Wednesday morning how they expect to proceed with the subpoena for Trump’s tax docs.

  6. More distracting from your presidents corruption and complete incompetence in dealing with the virus and other matters.
