For years now, it’s been widely known that the so-called “dossier” compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele was financed by the 2016 campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.
But before that was known, the dossier was presented to the American public by Democrats and their lackeys in the ‘mainstream media’ as a legitimate intelligence document – a lie that far too many Americans still believe today.
Well, Steele and the dossier and the “Russian collusion” hoax seem like they happened 10 years ago to many people, given the fact that we’ve been distracted by the coronavirus scare-demic, George Floyd, Black Lives Matter, and the Left’s ongoing Marxist culture war.
But behind those storylines, a legal case against Steele has been quietly progressing, and leave it to former Fox News-turned CBS News investigative ace Catherine Herridge to dish bombshell details about it.
Herridge released stunning proof on social media Thursday proving that the dossier was never an intelligence product and never intended as anything else other than a political tool of the “DNC” and the Hillary campaign.
“#FISA British court orders ex-spy Christopher Steele’s firm to pay limited damages to 2 Russian bankers for ‘inaccurate’ or ‘misleading’ material in dossier. Why it matters: Use of dossier central to ongoing Durham investigation,” she wrote to kick off a Twitter thread.
“#FISA British court docs in damages case also reveal new detail early contact between Steele + Fusion GPS at London’s Heathrow airport late May 2016 + ‘Ultimate Client’ DNC,” she wrote in a follow-up tweet.
“#FISA British court docs in damages case also reveal high level contact FBI, State Dept + Steele in 2016: identifies ‘Ass. Secretary of State Nuland’ + ‘Kathy Kavalec’ + Steele ‘enthusiastically briefing journalists,'” Herridge adds.
Translated, “enthusiastically briefing journalists” is code for ‘leaking lies.’
In black-and-white, the evidence doesn’t get any clearer: The dossier was never an ‘intelligence’ document, private or otherwise, it was always a political hit product designed to foster the fake narrative that Donald Trump and Mother Russia had ‘collaborated’ to ‘steal the election’ from the ‘rightful winner,’ Hillary Clinton.
As for the court’s ruling regarding that because of Steele’s “inaccurate or misleading” claims he must pay two Alfa Bank staffers, Fox News adds:
Orbis Business Intelligence was ordered to pay 18,000 English pounds, or nearly $23,000, each to Petr Aven and Mikhail Fridman for violating Britain’s Data Protection Act of 1998 and “for the loss of autonomy, distress and reputational damage caused by the breaches of duty,” the court said. The decision, authored by Justice Mark Warby of the High Court of England and Wales, was Steele’s first major court loss.
“This allegation [about the Putin payments] clearly called for closer attention, a more enquiring approach and more energetic checking,” Warby wrote. “Orbis failed to take reasonable steps in this regard, and to that extent, a breach of the Fourth Principle is established.”
