An investigative report by the Daily Caller has uncovered evidence that the FBI offered to pay Trump dossier author Christopher Steele to gather intelligence on Lt. General Michael Flynn in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election.

The report has gone virtually unnoticed by the mainstream media. It’s likely to receive renewed attention by some outlets now that government documents prove that Steele spread rumors during the winter of 2016-17 that Flynn had an affair with a Russian woman.

The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross reports:

It is not clear how and when Steele came across the rumor, or if it was the result of the FBI asking him to look into Flynn.

The inspector general’s report, released on Dec. 9, 2019, said that FBI agents offered to pay Steele “significantly” to collect intelligence from three separate “buckets” that the bureau was pursuing as part of Crossfire Hurricane, its counterintelligence probe of four Trump campaign associates.

One bucket was “Additional intelligence/reporting on specific, named individuals (such as [Carter Page] or [Flynn]) involved in facilitating the Trump campaign-Russian relationship,” the IG report stated.

FBI agents also sought contact with “any individuals or sub sources” who Steele could provide to “serve as cooperating witnesses to assist in identifying persons involved in the Trump campaign-Russian relationship.”

By that time, the opposition research firm Fusion GPS had contracted Steele to compile the infamous Russia dossier on Donald Trump and his associates, including Carter Page, Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen.

Proof that the FBI is corrupt?
Comey — Just about everything he did, include his letting the muslims flee the country immediately after 9/11.
McCabe — lies about FisA warrants.
Strozk — his insurance policy to keep Trump from being POTUS.
Rosenstein — He appointed Mueller who never found ANY crimes but tried to frame many of Trump’s associates.
Yates —- who refused to obey her boss’s instructions
And then the ULTIMATE. Most of the head of FBI offices around the country jumping up and down and screaming their heads off when Comey, the CRUD got fired.

The FBI has always been involved in shady and nefarious issues going back to its genesis. The FBI must be decomissioned. The CIA has to go also! The ‘Kingmakers’ behind the throne should be all gathered up at the front gates of Langley! Americans have been used up, spit out and internationally embarrased by the escapades of Spooks!

This whole story gets worse every time I read another story. This type of LE conduct is not what Americans expect from LE in Wshington. As bad as all of this is I will be reallly surprised if anyone goes to jail over this fiasco.

Now there is nothing illegal about the FBI paying informants the law enforcement from the lowest to the top do it all the time. Now when you ask a paid informant to go get you some information you need to make a case that is paying someone to investigate for you.
Now Flynn was already under investigation even before Trump was running for President so one has little to do with the other about Trump.

Well if you expect the traitors that run our government to cease their actions you might want reconsider living in the USA! If you expect these traitors to be punished, you might want to reconsider living in the USA! If you expect the second largest criminal organization in the world to prosecute these traitors, you might want to reconsider living in the USA!

Die schlimmsten Gangster an diesen ganzen rot-links-grün gesteuerten Denunzierungsaktionen sind die Schmierfinken von der Presse, die nur über das berichten, was den Linken unter Frau Pelosi, Gates, Soros & Money- Friends recht ist, unabhängig davon ob es Wahrheit ist, oder nicht !
Donald Trump, bitte, kämpfe weiter für Freiheit und Demokratie in den USA (aber auch in Europa, denn hier ist es schon viel schlimmer, als in den Staaten !). Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland, das durch Frau Merkel bald zum Sozialismus gedreht wird !!
