Trump Dossier Gaining Credibility

The Donald J. Trump dossier compiled by a former British spy is said to be gaining credibility.

On February 11, 2017 CBS News reported that they “learned that the 35-page dossier compiled by a former British spy is gaining credibility among law enforcement”.  Senator Wyden of Oregon, who is sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee today, asked President Obama to declassify information relating to the Russian government and the U.S. election in November.  Clearly Wyden is aware of information about Russia interference in the US presidential election, which he is not allowed to disclose.  His request for President Obama release information to the public was ignored.

For these reasons, has decided to publish the entire 35-page dossier.  Click here to download the document.

US intelligence officials briefed President Obama on the document before he left office.  The information was also shared with Trump before he was sworn into office.  Trump was dismissive of the subject.  Former British and US intelligence officers have said that the author of the dossier, Christopher Steele, is considered a credible investigator.  Steele went underground after the document was made public and has not made himself available for comment.

The dossier had been in circulation in Washington for months before its existence became public.  It was later reveal that major news media outlets also had copies but they all declined to report on the dossier because they were unable to corroborate the allegations within.  A British diplomat informed John McCain about the alleged Russian intel on Trump.  The claims that Russia had embarrassing information that could be used to blackmail Trump have still not been verified, at least not publicly.  It has been reported that the FBI is investigating.  Sources have indicated recently that there is increased interest in the dossier by the NSA, CIA, and congressional investigators as well.  In late January a former British ambassador to Russia characterized Steele as an “honest professional”.  The dossier was compiled as opposition intelligence on the Trump presidential campaign.  It includes claims that FSB, a Russian intelligence agency had evidence of sexual impropriety about then candidate Trump.  Sexual entrapment is a known tactic of the FSB.
