In a developing story to the Russia Collision story it seems the DNC and FBI colluded together in order to bring down President Trump. Judicial Watch was able to receive records through the FOIA request that proves the FBI paid Christopher Steele eleven times for his services.
Judicial Watch notes that the findings show Christopher Steele was paid by the Clinton campaign and the DNC to the amount of $168,000 in 2016 for opposition research on Candidate Trump.
The Steele Dossier was used by the FBI in order to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. After being told the Steele Dossier was not the source used to obtain the warrant we found out last year when the FISA warrant was released that it was the sole source to obtain the warrants.
The Steele Dossier was known to be a false document yet the FBI suspiciously paid Steele eleven times for his opposition research against President Trump. The FBI was also knowing that Steele was paid by the Clinton camp and the DNC.
The breaking story is arguably the strongest evidence to have emerged that their was a real coup in order to remove President Trump as President.
Below is the findings Judicial Watch posted on the records exposing the FBI paid Steele eleven times.
Former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr testified to Congress that “at some point during 2017, Chris Steele did speak with somebody from the FBI, but I don’t know who.”
This is the latest Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit in an extensive investigation into the Clinton-funded, anti-Trump dossier and its use to obtain FISA warrants in order to spy on the Trump campaign.
In a case seeking information between January 1, 2016, and March 8, 2017, Judicial Watch previously released FBI records showing that Steele was cut off as a “Confidential Human Source” in November 2016 after he disclosed his relationship to the FBI to a third party. The documents show that there were at least 11 FBI payments to Steele in 2016.
Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm hired by the Clinton campaign and the DNC, reportedly paid $168,000 in 2016 to Steele’s company, Orbis Business Intelligence.
In a related case, Judicial Watch recently released 339 pages of heavily redacted records from the DOJ revealing Bruce Ohr remained in regular contact with Steele after Steele was terminated by the FBI.
“How and why did the FBI pay Christopher Steele, who was already being funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC through Fusion GPS?” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “That we had to sue for this basic information shows the FBI may have something more to hide.”
