Russian Sources Behind Steele Dossier Identified
Recent revelations have confirmed the unsubstantiated Steele Dossier was the catalyst behind the Trump-Russia probe.

An alarmed attorney general has enlisted CIA Director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, US Attorney John Durham, and FBI Director Christopher Wray to expose the unvarnished truth behind the Russia investigation. 

Meanwhile, engaged citizens are continuing to learn more about the misleading information presented by Steele. 

The Daily Caller has the latest:

Dossier author Christopher Steele identified a former Russian spy chief and a top adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin as being involved in handling potentially compromising information about President Donald Trump, State Department notes show.

In her notes, State Department official Kathleen Kavalec also referred to the two Russians — former Russian foreign intelligence chief Vyacheslav Trubnikov and Putin aide Vladislav Surkov — as “sources.”

The references to Trubnikov and Surkov, which have not previously been reported, are not definitive proof that either were sources for Steele’s dossier or that they were involved in an effort to collect blackmail material on Trump.

But the notes are significant because they are the first government documents that show Steele discussing potential sources for the information in his dossier, which the former MI6 officer provided to the FBI.

The notes contain egregious errors, including that the Kremlin ran covert operations out of the Russian consulate in Miami. Of course, anyone can easily find out that the Russian Federation doesn't have a consulate in Miami.
