The FBI’s involvement in the Russia investigation has smelled fishy from the start.
Critics contend it was the work of anti-Trump partisans at the highest levels of the FBI.
And they admitted to hiding one terrible secret.
The Fusion GPS Russia dossier has been shredded.
Leakers are planting stories in the media trying to downplay its importance.
The latest example was a David Ignatius column in the Washington Post.
Ignatius was fed information from a Deep State source at the Bureau who tried to feed him the idea that the dossier played no real role in starting the investigation.
But in the process of trying to downplay the dossier – which the media will often try to falsely claim has been largely corroborated – Ignatius’ source revealed a startling tidbit.
The FBI was sharing information with Christopher Steele – the ex-British intelligence agent who put the fake news dossier together.
One FBI agent met with Steele in Rome on October 1 – just 5 weeks before Election Day – and provided him inside information about the investigation.
“The FBI was now very interested. Based on the Australian account, knowledgeable sources say, the bureau requested another meeting with Steele to dig deeper. That encounter took place around Oct. 1 in Rome with Steele’s old FBI contact. At this meeting, the FBI official asked Steele if he had ever heard of Papadopoulos, according to an official familiar with the meeting. Steele hadn’t.”
Ignatius source admits the Bureau was providing information to Steele while at the same time Steele was shopping his dossier to the press.
Who knows what other privileged information the FBI turned over to Steele that could have ended up in the media.
The deeper everyone digs into the FBI’s Russia investigation the more it stinks.
