Intel Experts: Steele Dossier Should be Investigated as Possible Russian Government Disinformation Operation

Really?

There are other theories for how Steele wound up publishing what appears to be false information.

One possibility floated by some Trump supporters, but that has no evidence, is that Steele or his paymaster, Fusion GPS, fabricated information in the dossier. A more charitable theory is that the dossier is based on half-baked rumors and innuendo provided to Steele through his network of sources within the Russian government.

But intelligence experts said the intelligence community should be on the lookout for a more nefarious scenario.

"Any time in the counterintelligence business you believe the U.S. intelligence community was duped by foreigners, that is a prima facie reason a counterintelligence investigation," said David B. Rivkin Jr., a constitutional attorney and intelligence expert who served in the Regan and Bush administrations.

"By definition, since there was no collusion, the dossier was disinformation, so the intelligence community was misled."

No surprise here: Firms connected to Fusion and Christopher Steele were paid $3.8 million by the George Soros-backed, ironically-named group The Democracy Integrity Project.

This group allegedly provides research to the government?

Which parts of the government are relying on George Soros and Fusion GPS for their decisions? I think we need an investigation into that.

A nonprofit group partially funded by billionaire activist George Soros paid firms tied to Fusion GPS and dossier author Christopher Steele more than $3.8 million in 2017 to provide research and analysis to "government entities," according to IRS filings.

...

Jones operated what he called a "shadow media organization helping the government" to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election. He also told the FBI in March 2017 that he received funding from a group of between seven and 10 wealthy donors and that he planned to provide information to federal investigators, the press and lawmakers.

...

TDIP also says it provides "original, credible, and fact-based information" to a variety of organizations, including "government entities."
