Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the infamous anti-Donald Trump dossier, acknowledges that a sensational charge his sources made about a tech company CEO and Democratic Party hacking is unverified.
In a court filing, Mr. Steele also says his accusations against the president and his aides about a supposed Russian hacking conspiracy were never supposed to be made public, much less posted in full on a website for the world to see on Jan. 10.
He defends himself by saying he was betrayed by his client and that he followed proper internal channels by giving the dossier to Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, to alert the U.S. government. (Ex-spy admits anti-Trump dossier unverified, blames Buzzfeed for publishing)
This seems to have put to bed the claim that “Russia hacked the election so Hillary lost.” But it is hard not to notice that that claim disappeared from MSM at the same time Susan Rice’s misuse of intelligence was made public.
In a nutshell, this is what I hate about the left. As a linguist, I see this side of the left as violent, stupid, and close-minded. As a person, I see it as dangerous groupthink that ostracizes individuals who disagree. I am glad Hannity is doing this. We need more of it.
An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s.
Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people.
