Steele cuts a deal with DOJ. Brennan in big trouble (Video)

  • The Duran Quick Take: Episode 194.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss how discredited Trump dossier author and ex-British Spy, Christopher Steele, has decided to cut a deal with the DOJ Inspector General.

Reports note that Steele is deeply worried about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse investigation being carried out by the Justice Department inspector general. Expect the British spy to do whatever needs to be done to save his hide, even if that means throwing former CIA director John Brennan and former FBI head James Comey under the bus.

Former MI6 agent Christopher Steele has finally agreed to meet with US officials to discuss his relationship with the FBI, and the now-infamous dossier of unfounded claims against Donald Trump which he assembled on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

The 54-year-old Steele has agreed to meet with investigators from the US Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG), according to The Times of London, after a former US official told Politico that the OIG report would “try to deeply undermine” Steele. 

The news marks a 180-shift in Steele’s past refusals to engage with US authorities. In April, Politico reported that Steele would not meet with the OIG to assist them with their investigation, while just last weekReuters reported that he wouldn’t meet with US attorney John Durham, who was handpicked by AG William Barr to review the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.

Steele, a MI6 Russia specialist for more than two-decades, has worked with the FBI as a confidential source since 2010. According to the report, he will retain the services of a top American attorney if the interview goes ahead, and is only willing to discuss the narrow scope of his dealings with US intelligence. Steele also wanted US officials to seek the approval of the British government.

Of note, the Steele dossier was referred to as “Crown material” in emails between US intelligence officials.

That said, a senior source told The Times: “As far as we are aware, no request has been made to HMG [Her Majesty’s government] on this matter. Any decision to co-operate would be a matter for Mr Steele as this relates to issues arising many years after he left government employment.”

Last year Mr Steele, who runs a corporate intelligence company, was named as the author of memos containing unsubstantiated allegations that the Kremlin held sexually lurid information about Mr Trump.

Mr Steele’s dossier led to an FBI inquiry, which became a two-year investigation presided over by the special counsel Robert Mueller. That found that figures in the Trump campaign team expected to benefit from Kremlin activities but cleared Mr Trump of liaising with Russia. –Times of London

In his dodgy dossier – a collection of 17 memos, some of which used Kremlin sources – Steele claimed that the Trump campaign was part of a “well-developed conspiracy of co-operation” with the Russian government in an attempt to influence the outcome of the 2016 US election. Steele claimed that the Kremlin was blackmailing Trump with a video of him encouraging prostitutes to urinate on a bed once used by former President Obama.

Steele’s work was commissioned by opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which was in turn paid by lawyers for the Clinton campaign and the DNC.

‘In his dodgy dossier – a collection of 17 memos, some of which used Kremlin sources……….’

More like Kiev sources. Who’s making odds? I’m always up for a good payday.

Dare I suggest, more like Skripal sources? An onanistic circle-jerk of the palace, used-up turncoat spies scrounging for an extra few hundred thousand pounds in return for fake evidence, and MI6.
This would tie in nicely with the fact that the Skripals are now probably feeding the fishes.
Let the palace prove otherwise.

They caught J Edgar wearing a garter belt and panty hose in private and getting all excited.

They caught Brennan wearing a burqa and trying to sneak into a Saudi beheading, all excited . America’s a weird place.

“America” is the product of ectoplasmic, post and pre-mortem fornication between the pirates of Barataria and the vicious Aztec Spirit of Tenochtitlan.

Unfortunately this is wishful thinking — it assumes the DOJ wants to do its job. Steele cutting a deal with the DOJ in reality means Steele agreed not to implicate any of the bad guys the DOJ doesn’t want to go after – certainly including Brennan, Come(d)y and Hitlery Clinton. The deal is probably something along the lines of “I agree not to implicate anyone on the ‘above the law’ list, will mention that Russia is really really bad, and in return I get a ‘witness protection’ deal to save me from the evil Russian spies. Of course that includes… Read more »

It’s a bit low-life to inckude the most salacious libelous and untrue part of the dossier in your article;

The masters of ‘compromat’ (the gathering of material for blackmail purposes) were never the Soviets, and certainly not the secret services of the Russian Empire. The masters of compromat in the USA were the Jewish Odessa Mafia of the US for whom the Italians were mere enforcers and foot-soldiers. Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky were the masters of gambling, drugs and prostitution, both in the USA and particularly in Cuba, where hidden cameras and free junkets for senators, congressmen and others in key positions resulted in a catalogue of incriminating materials. The Steele Dossier is a walk down that particular… Read more »

I wonder if the ridiculous term, “Strength in Diversity’ bandied about by low-potential, high-achievers like Justine Trudeau and his Ukro-Fascist Minister of Foreign Affairs, (and head of the Venezuela regime change atrocities (on the strength of her ‘successful’ coup project in Kiev), is based somehow on the serial, low-IQ mayhem unleashed on the world by the fragmentation of the US Gestapo into 17 ‘independent and utterly contradictory agencies.
The concept of Clarity in Chaos, or something like it, is a natural outgrowth of Disaster Capitalism.
