Lawyer for Russian Businessman Suing BuzzFeed for "Dossier" Defamation Agrees to Give Chuck Grassley the Videotape of Christopher Steele's Sworn Deposition

I'm sure that the Democrats and NeverTrumpers (but I repeat myself) calling for full transparency will celebrate this.

Riiiight.

Christopher Steele dodged all requests to meet with Congress about his dossier.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley found a solution.

Lawyers for a Russian businessman suing over the dossier have agreed to provide Grassley with a deposition Steele gave in June.

A lawyer for a Russian businessman suing BuzzFeed News over the infamous Steele dossier says he will provide the Senate with a video of a deposition that Christopher Steele, the document’s author, gave as part of the BuzzFeed lawsuit in June.

Also: Devin Nunes says the documents he's received concerning Carter Page are exculpatory and should have been included with the FISA application.

Remember, the FISA application is an ex parte affair -- only one party comes before the judge, the government. There is no opposing counsel to present competing evidence.

I can't find rules to guide prosecutors' ethical decisions, but I imagine that withholding exculpatory evidence from a judge, knowing that the judge will only see your brief and no others, would constitute a fraud on the court.
