A major breaking story just emerged showing that Christopher Steele, a former British spy known for preparing a Russia “dossier” that prompted at least two years of investigations into President Donald Trump’s campaign has just admitted in a London court something that blows the doors off the hinges just before Christmas. Steele stated that he was hired to help Hillary Clinton challenge the results and legitimacy of the 2016 election that she lost to now President Donald Trump, as reported by Breitbart, who referenced a very important excerpt from the Washington Times.
The Washington Times reported:
“He said the law firm Perkins Coie wanted to be in a position to contest the results based on evidence he unearthed on the Trump campaign conspiring with Moscow on election interference.
His scenario is contained in a sealed Aug. 2 declaration in a defamation law suit brought by three Russian bankers in London. The trio’s American attorneys filed his answers Tuesday in a libel lawsuit in Washington against the investigative firm Fusion GPS, which handled the former British intelligence officer.
In an answer to interrogatories, Mr. Steele wrote: “Fusion’s immediate client was law firm Perkins Coie. It engaged Fusion to obtain information necessary for Perkins Coie LLP to provide legal advice on the potential impact of Russian involvement on the legal validity of the outcome of the 2016 US Presidential election.
“Based on that advice, parties such as the Democratic National Committee and HFACC Inc. (also known as ‘Hillary for America’) could consider steps they would be legally entitled to take to challenge the validity of the outcome of that election.”
The dossier prepared by Steele was used by the FBI to gain the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant and spy on Trump’s associates. The FBI reportedly did not tell the FISA court that the Democratic National Committee and/or Hillary Clinton’s campaign was paying for the dossier or having it compiled as oppositional research.
Breitbart stated that the “dossier, and rumors of its contents, circulated widely throughout elite Beltway circles both before and during the election. The document — whose main claims have never been corroborated — is directly responsible for claims about Russian interference in the election, which Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party, and the media have used to cast doubt on the 2016 election — just as Steele’s employers had allegedly intended.”
Steele’s dossier is a series of 16 reports that totals 35 pages that was written and compiled in 2016. It’s stated to contain raw intelligence, but was possibly not evaluated or synthesized by Steele. It’s reported that Steele didn’t ever render a bottom-line judgement on what was found, so it remains a raw report without a finished touch, according to Law Fare Blog.
It’s unclear what might happen next, but this does not look good for Hillary Clinton or the Democratic national party. Democrats face an extremely uphill battle selecting a viable candidate to run against President Trump in 2020. Nevertheless, they’re running out of options when it comes to candidates and recent polls suggest Former Vice President Joe Biden is at the top of the list for possibly running against Trump in the 2020 election.
