In 2021, the dishonest FBI offered Christopher Steele $1 million to verify the untrue claims made against Donald J. Trump in the crazy “Pee-Pee” dossier. This is understandable because the dossier was so absurd that someone needed to be paid off with a lot of money to verify it was true while maintaining a straight face.
Additionally, that is a concern because the FBI has affirmed in 2016 that the bizarre dossier was accurate.
The agency’s responsibility is to vouch for the veracity of the information they provided.
This tale demonstrates that the FBI’s strike on Trump as the legitimately elected President was the only purpose behind the entire Russia fake.
The bizarre dossier was an outright attack on Hillary Clinton’s character that was later shown to have been paid for by her campaign and the DNC through a law company in order to avoid taking responsibility for the false information that the public was fed by Democrat lapdog media.
According to testimony on Tuesday, the FBI offered former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele $1 million to verify the obscene claims made in his dossier against former President Donald Trump and supporters of his 2016 campaign. However, Steele was unable to do so.
The first witness in the trial of Igor Danchenko, a Russian national who functioned as the main sub-source for Steele’s anti-Trump dossier and has been charged with five counts of making false statements to the agency, according to Fox News, was FBI supervisory counterintelligence analyst Brian Auten.
“Auten testified that he and a group of FBI agents went overseas in early October 2021 to speak with Steele about the dossier. During questioning by Special Counsel John Durham on Tuesday, Auten said that during those meetings the FBI offered Steele $1 million if he could corroborate allegations in the dossier. Auten testified that Steele could not do so.”
Fox provided more information regarding the fraud’s true nature:
Furthermore, according to Auten, the FBI did not have evidence to support the charges in the dossier but still used the material in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to monitor former Trump campaign employee Carter Page.
“On October 21, 2016 [the date of the Carter Page FISA application], did you have any information to corroborate that information?” Durham asked.
The FBI began receiving Steele’s reports, later known as the dossier, on September 19, 2016, and on October 21, 2016, the FBI submitted its first FISA application on Page. “No,” Auten said.
The FBI General Counsel James Baker and then-Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann met on September 19, 2016, at FBI headquarters to discuss allegations that the Trump Organization had used a covert back channel to communicate with Alfa Bank, a bank with ties to the Kremlin, in the weeks preceding the presidential election.
In June, Sussmann’s accusation of lying to the FBI was dismissed.
On September 19, 2016, Sussmann allegedly delivered the data to Baker and asserted that he was not acting on behalf of any client but rather was presenting the information as a citizen concerned with national security.
Auten also claimed that the FBI contacted other intelligence organizations to see if they could vouch for the accuracy of the dossier’s information. The dossier was commissioned by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee via the law firm Perkins Coie.
Under questioning from Durham, Auten repeatedly acknowledged that the FBI never got confirmation of the details in the Steele dossier, but he insisted that they were incorporated in the initial FISA application and the three subsequent renewals.
Judge Raymond Dearie, who presided over the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court at the time and is now serving as a special master evaluating the documents recovered by the FBI during its historic search of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence, approved the last warrant to monitor Page.
In 2019, Michael Horowitz, the inspector general for the Justice Department, claimed that the dossier was the foundation for the FISA warrants against Page.
The dossier was the initial source cited by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee as supporting those warrants and surveillance.
CNN is spreading false information regarding when the bribe was given, presumably in search of a fall-guy:
Steele-FBI meeting was on October 3 2016. FBI's first surveillance warrant on Carter Page was then filed on Oct. 21.
This means that after the FBI offered Steele $1 million to prove his dossier — which he couldn't — FBI filed a surveillance warrant based on the dossier anyway. https://t.co/OHaWgyzQKv
