Chuck Ross: Barr/DOJ Investigation Into Spying Is "Broad in Scope and Multifaceted;" Will Also Look at Non-State Actors Such as NGOs and... Individuals

NGOs? Oooh, I just got a little thrill in my pee-hole!

Now, I don't think that NGOs means what I hope it means (the Clinton Foundation) but a lad can dream.

“It is now well established that, in 2016, the U.S. government and others undertook certain intelligence-gathering and investigative steps directed at persons associated with the Trump Campaign,” Boyd wrote Nadler, adding that “there remain open questions relating to the origins of this counter-intelligence investigation and the U.S. and foreign intelligence activities that took place prior to and during that investigation.” (RELATED: Trump Gives Barr Authority To Declassify Russia Probe Documents)

“The Review is broad in scope and multifaceted, and is intended to illuminate open questions regarding the activities of U.S. and foreign intelligence services as well as non-governmental organizations and individuals,” Boyd wrote.

Individuals?

I have a few individuals I'd like to see thoroughly investigated.

More: Steele was in Clinton's orbit long before the dossier.

Before now, we had the cover story that Fusion GPS hired Steele, with Hillary Clinton unaware of what Fusion was doing in her name.

This seems less likely now:

WASHINTON—Former British spy Christopher Steele, author of the infamous anti-Trump dossier bearing his name, was introduced by a key State Department aide to top executives of a firm founded by President Bill Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff Mack McLarty, according to documents made public on June 10 by Judicial Watch.


In multiple email threads included in the documents, Jonathan Winer, then the U.S. Department of State's special coordinator for Libya, acts repeatedly on behalf of Steele, arranging meetings for him with other current and former top U.S. officials, as well as influential consultants and strategists like those at the McLarty firm.

Did Hillary ask Fusion to hire him to re-write the Blumenthal/Shearer "Dossier" to give it a veneer of credibility?
