Steele Admitted His Clients Were Anxious To Get His Fake Dossier In the News Before the Election;
The DOJ Played Hide-the-Ball With The Report Noting This Fact

John Solomon strikes again.

People need to start being charged with crimes.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec's written account of her Oct. 11, 2016, meeting with FBI informant Christopher Steele shows the Hillary Clinton campaign-funded British intelligence operative admitted that his research was political and facing an Election Day deadline.


And that confession occurred 10 days before the FBI used Steele's now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s ties to Russia.

Steele’s client "is keen to see this information come to light prior to November 8," the date of the 2016 election, Kavalec wrote in a typed summary of her meeting with Steele and Tatyana Duran, a colleague from Steele's Orbis Security firm. The memos were unearthed a few days ago through open-records litigation by the conservative group Citizens United.

Kavalec's notes do not appear to have been provided to the House Intelligence Committee during its Russia probe, according to former Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.). "They tried to hide a lot of documents from us during our investigation, and it usually turns out there's a reason for it," Nunes told me. Senate and House Judiciary investigators told me they did not know about them, even though they investigated Steele's behavior in 2017-18.

Handwritten notes indicate a connection to Hillary Clinton. Those haven't been shared with Congress, either.

Read the whole thing -- Solomon reveals the bullshit pretexts used to keep this information "classified."
