Former Official Said Obama’s DOJ Got Steele Dossier From Clinton Confidant

Published

(Via Zerohedge)


A former official in President Obama’s State Department has confirmed a claim by the Senate Judiciary Committee, that former British spy Christopher Steele and Hillary Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal gave him intelligence reports claiming that President Trump had been compromised by the Russians.


Jonathan Winer, former U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, confirmed the Judiciary Committee’s claims in an op-ed for the Washington Post titled “Devin Nunes is investigating me: Here’s the Truth.”


“While talking about that hacking, Blumenthal and I discussed Steele’s reports. He showed me notes gathered by a journalist I did not know, Cody Shearer, that alleged the Russians had compromising information on Trump of a sexual and financial nature,” writes Winer.


In September 2016, Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier.” Steele’s sources suggested that the Kremlin not only had been behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign but also had compromised Trump and developed ties with his associates and campaign.


Winer’s op-ed corroborates the series of events outlined in a criminal referral for Steele issued by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), which asks the DOJ to investigate Steele for allegedly lying to the FBI about his contacts with the media.


Winer then gave Steele various anti-Trump memos from Clinton operative Sidney Blumenthal, which originated with Clinton “hatchet man” Cody Shearer. Winer claims he didn’t think Steele would share the Clinton-sourced information with anyone else in the government.


“But I learned later that Steele did share them — with the FBI, after the FBI asked him to provide everything he had on allegations relating to Trump, his campaign and Russian interference in U.S. elections,” Winer writes.


Steele goes dark


On Monday, Steele skipped out on a UK court appearance following the “Grassley Memo” which notes that he lied to the FBI about his contacts with the media – leading the FBI to terminate their relationship with Steele, despite relying heavily on his work to apply for a FISA surveillance warrant on one-time Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.


Steele was expected for a long-requested deposition in a multi-million dollar civil case brought against Buzzfeed, which published a salacious and unverified “Trump-Russia” dossier.


The Grassley memo outlines Steele’s involvement with the two dossiers now confirmed by Winer’s op-ed.


“There is substantial evidence suggesting that Mr. Steele materially misled the FBI about a key aspect of his dossier efforts, one which bears on his credibility,” reads the unredacted document that refers Steele for criminal prosecution in the US.


Steele was paid $168,000 by opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which was funded in part by Hillary Clinton and the DNC, who used law firm Perkins Coie as an intermediary.


Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee’s January 4 criminal referral of Steele also reveals that the former British spy was involved in a second anti-Trump opposition research dossier.


As we reported Monday, this second dossier went from Clinton “hatchet man” Cody Shearer, who gave it to an unnamed official in the Obama State Department, before it was routed to Christopher Steele. It is unknown what happened to the document after that.

Trump to withhold “Federal Family Planning Funds” from people who kill babies, Obama’s legacy dead

Published

on

Friday, stories about President Donald J. Trump cutting access to taxpayer funds for Planned Parenthood shook the left. The cut could result in over 60 Million dollars of funds being stripped from Planned Parenthood and diverted to Women’s Health Centers.

“Planned Parenthood spends tens of Millions of Dollars on Political activity and performs Abortions. We don’t think taxpayers should be paying for that,” said KellyAnne Elizabeth Conway, Counselor to the President.

WHAT ARE FEDERAL FAMILY PLANNING FUNDS?

Until today, the funds pay for abortions because of Obama’s Pen and Phone. The money they take from us for this program is called “Taxes”.

Soros Newest Investor Of Tesla Bonds

Published

Tesla looks to have a new bond holder and it’s none other than George Soros. Whatever this mean, Soros has also taken a stake in Crypto-Currencies .

Zerohedge Reports: Amid Elon Musk’s darkest hour in late March – as his stocks and bonds tumbled in price – it seems there was at least one other billionaire willing to buy the ‘blood on the street’.

According to the latest 13Fs, George Soros’ investment firm took a $35 million stake in Tesla’s convertible bonds during the first three months of the year.

As a reminder, convertibles are hybrid securities, either bonds or preferred stock, that can be exchanged for a predetermined number of common shares. That effectively lets an investor participate in stock-price changes, but with the yield and greater security of a fixed-income instrument.

The March 2019 Converts bounced handsomely off those lows – tracking the stock’s divergent bounce – but in recent days has fallen back towards the lows, catching down to the straight bonds record low price.
