A seditious conspiracy...from the start...and it CONTINUES TODAY.



Mission Accomplished: Christopher Steele Admits He Was Hired to Cast Doubt on the 2016 Election Results

Christopher Steele, a former spy from Britain and the author of the Trump-Russia dossier, admitted in court that Democratic law firm Perkins Coie hired him in preparation for Donald Trump winning the presidency in 2016. His goal was to help Hillary Clinton challenge the results of the presidential election.

According to The Washington Times, three Russian bankers – Mikhail Fridman, Petr Aven and German Khan – in London filed a defamation lawsuit agains Fusion GPS which handled Steele.

Steele faces another libel lawsuit in London, filed by Russian entrepreneur Aleksej Gubarev, owner of XBT Holdings. He provides computer services to thousands of clients. In the dossier, Steele claimed Gubarev hacked the Democrats' computers under orders from the Russian intelligence community. Gubarev said the claims are false. He's also suing BuzzFeed, who posted the dossier in its entirety last year.

The U.S. intelligence community determined that Russians meddled in the elections by hacking Democrats' computers. No Trump associates have been charged with collusion.

That is about as poorly written a piece as one usually finds in Right Wing rags.

So there are two CIVIL suits for libel in process and that is your Mission Accomplished. Good...if that is what it takes to end the endless yammering from the Right, I am good with that.

Completely agree. He (a foreign agent) was hired by the DNC to produce dirt that could be used to sway an American election. When that failed, the DNC then used the dossier that they bought and paid for and through like minded scumbags in the FBI, some of whom were married to the ****heads at Fusion GPS, then used the falsified data, that the DNC colluded to get from a foreign agent in an attempt to sway a US election to also open investigations to further assist in swaying the election and when that failed, those same scumbag agents used that falsified colluded data to begin investigations in an attempt to usurp the results of an election. And sadly...all of this is known...but sithead leftists actually SUPPORT the corruption of the DNC, their collusion with foreign agents to sway an election, and the Gestapo like tactics of the FBI...all because it suits their politics.

Tragic what they have become. ****ing pieces of ****...the lot of them.

Keep grasping, I'm sure you'll catch some straws eventually.

Name one thing there that isnt correct.

Steele wasn't a "foreign agent." He worked for Fusion GPS, which is a private company. The "dirt" was opposition research that every campaign does. He uncovered information that he realized should be turned over to the authorities for proper investigation. Your claim of "falsified data" has no evidence to back it up. The claim of "usurping" the results of an election is pathetic. You elected a man who might be a criminal. Potential criminals get investigated. That's how justice works. The reason you're so triggered is that you don't like what is being uncovered. You want Trump to get away with his crimes.

Do you think if Trump goes to jail, Hillary Clinton becomes president?

The OP and Trump supporters are totally detached from reality.

Steele was the former head of the MI6 Russia desk. Again, he retired and took a job for the Hillary campaign to dig up dirt. Real dirt, not fake dirt. What he found was so shocking he reported it to the FBI. Most of what he said has turned out to be true.

Trump supporters just mindlessly dismiss Steele's report because he worked for Hillary. That's idiotic.

Let's say I work for Trump and I am a former, highly respected CIA agent looking for dirt on Hillary. I find that Hillary has a massive child trafficking operation. I report my findings to the FBI. Should they just ignore me because I worked for Trump and was digging up dirt on Hillary?

Steel WAS a British former intelligence officer with the Secret Intelligence Service MI6 from 1987 until his retirement in 2009. He ran the Russia desk at MI6 headquarters in London between 2006 and 2009. He was hired BY Fusion GPS SPECIFICALLY to further fabricate his bull**** dossier. His information was all FORIEGN obtained and the very purpose and intent of the DNC, hiring an intermediary to hire Fusion was to collude with FOREIGN agents to provide dirt to sway a US election. The whole thing was a colluded and coordinated effort between the DNC, Fusion, Foreign agents, and the FBI in an attempt to first sway an election and second...overturn the results of an election.

But you and the rest have been ****ting yourself nonstop over 'collusion'. But just...you know...the imaginary connection of Trump and Collusion. The DNC? Hell...you JUSTIFY every illegal act by the FBI as long as it fits your sad partisan bent. Triggered? Hell...Ive said since day 1. Do a COMPLETE investigation and hang ANYONE that is caught with what YOU claim is criminal collusion and every other illegal unconstitutional bull**** act that has transpired. But people like you...you ONLY have eyes for 'the other guys'. You are everything that is wrong with this country.

When you hire someone to do opposition research you don't want them to fabricate information. What would be the point of using fabricated information?


His information was all FORIEGN obtained and the very purpose and intent of the DNC, hiring an intermediary to hire Fusion was to collude with FOREIGN agents to provide dirt to sway a US election.

If an investigator from Turkey asks you about your Turkish next door neighbor, he's not requesting information from a foreign AGENT. I assume you're not working for the U.S. government.

Surely, Russian agents wouldn't give Steele information about their favorite candidate Donald Trump.

I hope I cleared this up for you.

And in what year was this dossier created? The one you keep claiming was fabricated but somehow can't provide a single shred of evidence to support the allegation?

Wait. You are saying there is something wrong with hiring a private contractor to spy on the Russians? Does the nationality of your contractor matter?

That's the same (or so much worse, apparently) as saying you "love it" when a known Russian intelligence agent tells you they will provide dirt on your political opponent?

You really don't see the difference?

And, of course, one can’t imagine Trump challenging the validity of an election.

Total weak sauce argument laced with disinformation. GPS was first hired by Republicans. Also, hiring Steele was 100% legit. Unlike jr’s illegal attempt at obtaining opposition info from a Russian government agent as a gift, the DNC contracted and paid for Steele’s services. It’s way too late in the game for the smoke you’re blowing.
