Christopher Steele Wrote Another Trump Memo, Given Info By Clinton Contact Through Obama State Department
By Jim E
With the Super Bowl all said and done, the real game is about to begin.
On Friday, President Trump finally approved for release the contents of the memo drafted by staffers of Representative Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. What the memo revealed was nothing short of damning.
We learned that the FBI and the Department of Justice used the infamous ‘Trump dossier’ compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele to obtain a warrant from the secretive FISA court in order to monitor a Trump campaign staffer. The FBI knew that the dossier was untrustworthy, and they knew that the Clinton campaign had paid for it.
This raises questions as to the impartiality of the FBI when conducting surveillance on the campaign of a private individual running for president. We also learned from Rep. Trey Gowdy over the weekend that the FISA warrant would have never been granted had it not been for the Steele dossier.

Now, we know that Steele had a hand in a second dossier, one which was also intimately linked with the Clinton campaign. But it gets worse:
Never Miss Another Story
Byron York of the Washington Examiner just broke the news:
A newly released document from the Senate Judiciary Committee says Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the Trump dossier, wrote an additional memo on the subject of Donald Trump and Russia that was not among those published by BuzzFeed in January 2017.
The newly-released document is an unclassified and heavily redacted version of the criminal referral targeting Steele filed on Jan. 4 by Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley, of Iowa, and Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina. It appears to confirm some level of coordination between the extended Clinton circle and the Obama administration in the effort to seek damaging information about then-candidate Trump.
Here is the kicker from the report:
According to the referral, Steele wrote the additional memo based on anti-Trump information that originated with a foreign source. In a convoluted scheme outlined in the referral, the foreign source gave the information to an unnamed associate of Hillary and Bill Clinton, who then gave the information to an unnamed official in the Obama State Department, who then gave the information to Steele. Steele wrote a report based on the information, but the redacted version of the referral does not say what Steele did with the report after that.
Published accounts in the Guardian and the Washington Post have indicated that Clinton associate Cody Shearer was in contact with Steele about anti-Trump research, and Obama State Department official Jonathan Winer was a connection between Steele and the State Department during the 2016 campaign.
Yikes! More chicanery from the Clinton campaign and the Obama Administration to tank the Trump campaign!
We need a full-blown investigation into this entire matter. We need a special counsel assigned to investigate just how deep the ties were between the Obama White House, the Clinton campaign, Michael Steele, and the lobbying firm Fusion GPS.
