re: Big story out of UK on British handling of Steele dossier
You are absolutely pretending like the concerted effort to remove Trump from office post-election, using Steeles dossier and all of its manufactured coroboration (this likely being another example of that) wasn't even a thing. How can we have a serious conversation about this?

Pap was in summer 2016.

Steele went to British intelligence in mid-November 2016. Trump found out Jan 6, 2017.

I’m just not seeing what he was hoping to accomplish in a month and a half. US intelligence had already known what he gave British intelligence for over three months

By doing what? They already got the FISA taps before the election.

Were they hoping Obama would call a press conference and invalidate the election?

What? Leak it to the press? The US intelligence folks already had it to leak.

I’m genuinely confused what options this gave the plotters that they already did not have.

re: Big story out of UK on British handling of Steele dossier
Is it really that mystifying to your that just as crossfire was ending, Steele took his dossier to British spooks? Considering 5 eyes, and the poppa shenanigans over the summer, I seriously doubt they didn't know about it all already.

Eta. To me, this smells like cover for the brits. Sort of like that Susan Rice email sent to herself minutes after Trump was inaugurated.

Which reinforces my point. It’s redundant by Steele.

It could be. But I still don’t see how it’s a bombshell.

Not at all. Getting the Brits in on the action was the only thing he could do to keep "investigations" going. Sort of like desperately leaking memos in an effort to get a SC appointed.

Oh. Well, by all means, let's argue about your own personal definition of bombshell.

You need to listen to Dan Bongino podcast. He has laid everything out using facts presented in liberal media articles (so as not to appear bias), as well as John Solomon & Sara Carter.

Have you heard of parallel construction?
Do you recall hearing Brennan claiming they spied on Trump b/c there was a "corpus of intelligence"?
Comey claimed there was a "mosaic of information", remember?!
McCabe claimed there was a "series of articulable facts"?!......

.....Well!?! This circular crap with all these lies is what they are talking about!!! It was the same damn lies from Steele/Simpson of GPS which was filtered through Australia, UK, & American intelligence. The SAME damn lies from the SAME damn people and they all knew each other! NOT VERIFIED!!! IT WAS A HOAX!!!! And worst yet, it was coming from.....you guessed it: THE RUSSIANS!!!

Yep. They simply laundered the information to pretend it was coming from multiple sources.

my bad. Forgot where I was.


No it's not that boosie, you are just carrying the water for your side of the aisle. Honestly though you are at least reasonable, usually, so I implore you to dig deep within and see there are MAJOR problems with how all of this has gone down and NOBODY deserves to be set up the way Trump has been and then summarily persecuted for doing nothing. That's just not right no matter how you look at it.

When I used to play pick up basketball, if I fouled someone or had the last touch of the ball before it went out of bounds for example, much to my teammates' chagrin, I would call myself out. I did this because the LAST thing I wanted was to not foul or not have the ball come off me yet get blamed for it. Folks knew I called an honest game on myself. I would have a lot of respect for any lefty who was just honest with the situation and call out the bull shite because you don't want that crap to go the other way at any point in time when the shoe is on the other foot.

Got the stones to call out the bull shite there boosie???

I think this went beyond that. Remember, this is post FISA. Steele had already successfully laundered his own Intel through Issikoff to get the Dossier past the courts.

This smells like a Steele trying to get GCHQ to continue to spy on Trump post election (and post Brennan, Flapper, and Lynch) with a side of CYA for the stuff that was done by other former spooks during the Papadopoulos deal.

If you are falsely accused one might suggest a similar response.

Exactly why the intel chiefs shielded May from the claims is not known.



Because deep down they knew it was all bull shite. That's why.

What is the significance of our disclosure? One, it suggests British intel figures treated the Steele dossier with gravity, escalating it rapidly up the system. That is in marked contrast to Trump’s position, which is that the dossier is “fake” and “phony”.


Lots of people treated Jussie Smollett's claims with "gravity." It didn't make them any less bull shite.

CNN wouldn't even touch it. Yet Comeys FBI was out trying to get warrants with it.

re: Big story out of UK on British handling of Steele dossier
None of what I’ve said has been to argue there wasn’t frickery afoot with Steele and the dossier. All of my comments here have been that I don’t think this specific story in the OP is that big of a deal. And as much as I’ve gotten blasted throughout this thread, no one has given me a cogent answer as to why this is such a big deal.

To be honest I had already assumed the dossier was spread around to other agencies and I thought that was known and built into the outrage already.

I assumed brits were in on it because they clearly were. This confirms that it was more likely former spies and friends of Steele operating outside of gchq - at least prior to the election.
