The plot thickens and America needs answers and we need them now. While the media is fixated on Michael Cohen’s three-year sentence an intrepid news organization found a bombshell about Hillary Clinton and the infamous Steele dossier.
The Daily Caller News Foundation was tracking a court case involving the Trump dossier author Christopher Steele who was being sued in England.
James Comey said they did not verify the dossier yet used it as some source material for certain FISA warrants.
Also, the dossier has been linked to certain people with deep ties to the Democrats and in particular Hillary Clinton further causing alarm.
And now we have an old name and very old Clinton confidant Strobe Talbott tied up in this mess. Talbott worked for Bill Clinton’s administration and goes back years with the Clintons. He was given the dossier as well to help it get traction in establishment circles.
From The Daily Caller: Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous anti-Trump dossier, disclosed information from his Trump-Russia investigation to a longtime Clinton crony because of his position on a State Department advisory board, according to court documents filed on Tuesday.
According to the court filing, Steele told a court in the United Kingdom on Aug. 1 that he provided Strobe Talbott, the Clinton insider, with anti-Trump research because of his position on the Foreign Affairs Policy Board, an independent advisory board set up in 2011 by then-Sec. of State Hillary Clinton.
Clinton appointed Talbott chairman of the advisory board, and he served in that role through John Kerry’s tenure.
“As regards disclosure to Strobe Talbott (if relevant to this claim), the Defendant relies on US Department of State Foreign Affairs Policy Board,” reads the Aug. 1 filing.
Steele’s link to Talbott, which has not previously been revealed, shows the lengths to which Steele went to disseminate the fruits of his Trump investigation, which started in June 2016 when he was hired by Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm hired by the DNC and Clinton campaign.
Steele disclosed the link to Talbott in response to a series of questions posed in the U.K. ligation.
Steele’s filing does not provide additional details on his interactions with Talbott, who served as deputy secretary of state in the Bill Clinton administration.
Talbott has long been friends with the Clintons, having met the former president at Oxford in the 1960s.
