Christopher Steele Gave More Garbage Conspiracy Theories to James Comey's FBI, Some of Them Straight from Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer

Hey, remember when the Smart Set was supposedly totally anti-conspiracy theories and attacked Trump mercilessly for the Kenya Birth Certificate conspiracy theory?

Remember when they repeatedly slandered the Tea Party as conspiracy theorists?

Remember right now when these supposed anti-conspiracy-theorists attempt to deny all facts they don't like by calling them "conspiracy theories"?

And yet... they sure do love a conspiracy theory that affirms their prior political biases.

British ex-spy Christopher Steele shared more fake conspiracy theories with the FBI than just his infamous Steele dossier (with the pee story in it). At least three Steele assertions went to the Crossfire Hurricane team. Every single one of them was -- wait for it-- was untrue.

The Washington Times explains that "The three allegations had to do with supposed Trump campaign cash from Moscow via Azerbaijan, a Russian intelligence officer, and a purported intervention by Russian President Vladimir Putin on the next secretary of state."

The stories are described in Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz's recent report on FBI misconduct.


And then there is the allegation that Trump received "illicit campaign cash from an Azerbaijani family... Like the dossier, the Azerbaijani angle remains unverified. There is no hint of such payments in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and his team’s two years’ worth of FBI investigating any links between Trump, his allies and Russia."

This information was given to Steele, not by a Russian source, but by "two longtime Hillary Clinton operatives and liberal former journalists, Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer." In other words, Democratic Party / Hillary Clinton operatives were directly involved in the attempt to make Trump look like a Russian stooge.
