Nunes Memo

The Nunes Memo is on line at Nunes Memorandum & Nunes Memo ex Scribd [ That version is clearer ]. It led to a major upset in the United States Congress, United States Senate and two branches of the Executive in particular, the Department of Justice & the Federal Bureau of Investigation. First there was a huge storm then a media blackout. This is one for Donald Trump to use. Putting criminals of the Deep State in prison, where they belong would bring the pains on. But as Ronnie Regan said: A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

The memo deals with
QUOTE
Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Abuses At The Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation
UNQUOTE

The starting issue, the real issue is whether government officials are guilty of malpractice.  This can include Malicious Prosecution, Perjury, Perverting The Course Of Justice, Misconduct In Public Office & suppressing relevant facts - see Mark Steyn Comments' on the point. All of these mean acting Mala Fide, in bad faith. Who are they? See #FISA Warrant Applications. The question that needs answering is whether they are guilty or not.
UPDATE

The requests for warrants were all made by lawyers - #FISA Warrant Applications

But rejoice because #Nunes Memo Number 2 Is Coming. He is fingering the State Department, more apparatchiks, more chancers coming unstuck.

You might think from the monstrous outcry of the Main Stream Media that the matters are very different. Reading the allegations of party political bias makes it look as though Donald Trump is releasing the memo for personal advantage. So what are the facts?

The Case
Devin Nunes wrote the memo headed:-
Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Abuses At The Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation

That seems pretty uncontroversial to most people. Of course it should never have become an issue in the first place - but it has. Mr Nunes tells us that various officials applied to a secret court for surveillance warrants, that they did it four times and suppressed relevant facts in order to get their phone taps etc. The story is true or false.

Page 1 is introductory. The meat of the matter is in pages 3 to 6. Notice, amusingly that it was classified TO SECRET/ NOFORN  [ no foreign eyes], another case of over classifying.

The Reaction
Various government officials have tried to get the memo suppressed. The  Main Stream Media has supported them with howls of protest and fraudulent allegations. See e.g. Search Results. They prove that the media know that the case is genuine.

What Are The Consequences Going To Be?
The fact that Hillary Clinton hired Christopher Steele to dig for dirt, to produce the Dodgy Dossier means that the trail of corruption leads right back to her. The media wanted her in the White House so that she could destroy America. Now she is in with a chance of doing Life Without Parole in Leavenworth. Lots of people would be delighted at getting a result.

Other Aspects
 
The Main Stream Media have invested huge efforts in discrediting Donald Trump.. Now their corruption is exposed. Two happy exceptions to this result will be Fox News & Mark Steyn. The truth has its uses.

Dodgy Dossier ex Wiki
NB The Wiki has chosen to give it a different name because it is a Propaganda machine that is hiding the truth.
Key propaganda words - allegation [ x 8 ], claim [ x 12 ], controversy [ x 1 ]

The Trump–Russia dossier, also known as the Steele dossier,[1] is a private intelligence dossier of 17 memos that were consecutively written from June to December 2016[2] by former MI6 intelligence officer Christopher Steele. It contains allegations of misconduct and conspiracy between the Donald Trump campaign and the Russian government before and during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, much of it detailing alleged cooperation between the campaign and Russians to interfere in the election to benefit Trump.[3] The contents of the dossier were published in full by BuzzFeed on January 10, 2017.[4] Several mainstream media outlets have criticized BuzzFeed's decision to publish the dossier.[5][6][7]

Some of the dossier's allegations have been confirmed, while others have yet to be proved or disproved.[8][9] Some claims may require access to classified information for verification.[10] The media, intelligence community, as well as most experts have treated the dossier with caution, while Trump himself denounced the report as "fake news". In February 2017, some details related to conversations between foreign nationals were independently verified.[11] As of December 2017, the dossier's allegations of collusion have not been corroborated.[12][13]

The dossier was produced as part of opposition research during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. After Trump emerged as the probable Republican nominee, attorney Marc Elias of the Perkins Coie law firm retained American research firm Fusion GPS to conduct opposition research about Trump on behalf of the Democratic National Committee and Clinton presidential campaign. Fusion GPS later contracted Steele to compile the dossier.[14] Following Trump's election as president, Steele continued working on the report, with funding from Democrats ceasing and financing finally coming directly from Glenn R. Simpson of Fusion GPS.[15] The completed dossier and its information was then passed on to British and American intelligence services.[16]  

 

Dodgy Dossier Allegations ex Wiki
The Trump–Russia dossier[1] is a private intelligence dossier of 17 memos that were consecutively written from June to December 2016[2] by former MI6 intelligence officer Christopher Steele. The memos allege that Russia has been cultivating a relationship with Donald Trump for decades, that the Kremlin favored Trump in the U.S. presidential election, and took various actions during the 2016 election to promote his candidacy and oppose Hillary Clinton's. The document claims that several of Trump's associates, in particular campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Trump's personal attorney Michael D. Cohen, and Trump foreign policy advisor Carter Page, worked with Russian contacts to promote Trump's candidacy. Alleged activities include planning the hack of Democratic National Committee emails and their subsequent leaking, arranging coverups and cash payments, and promising favorable policies toward Russia if Trump was elected. The document also claims that Russian operators possessed compromising information about Trump which could make him subject to blackmail. Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have repeatedly denied the allegations.[3][4]

The dossier contains multiple allegations, some of which have been confirmed, while others have yet to be proved or disproved.[5][6] Some claims may require access to classified information for verification.[7] The media, intelligence community, as well as most experts have treated the dossier with caution, while Trump himself denounced the report as "fake news". In February 2017, some details related to conversations between foreign nationals were independently verified.[8] As of December 2017, the dossier is "uncorroborated but not disproved".[9][10]

 

Nunes Memo ex Wiki 
[ This version of the Wiki's article was downloaded on 2018-02-03. A couple of small bits are omitted, else it is verbatim - read it to see the bias, the evasions, the omissions - Editor ]
The Nunes memo is a four-page memo written by Republican staff members for U.S. Representative Devin Nunes and released in February 2018. It alleges that the Federal Bureau of Investigation "may have relied on politically motivated or questionable sources" to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant in the early phases of the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.[2] Nunes is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee (HPSCI) and a supporter of FISA surveillance extension.[3][4][5] In April 2017 Nunes stepped aside from chairing the HPSCI Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee conducted an inquiry into possible ethics violation involving his secret coordination with the White House; he then began his own secret parallel investigation. The Ethics Committee cleared him in December 2017, and Nunes later claimed he had never recused.

Republican legislators favoring public release of the memo on transparency grounds argued that the memo contains evidence that the FISA warrant process was misused by FBI employees to sabotage the Trump presidency.[6] They alleged there was excessive dependence on allegations in the Trump-Russia dossier in obtaining a warrant from the FISA court.[7] Political allies of Donald Trump have attempted to use the memo to pivot attention away from the Special Counsel investigation of the Trump presidential campaign's role in Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.[6] Prior to the release of the memo, sources reported that Trump told his associates that release of the memo would discredit the investigation.[8][9][10]

Anticipation of the release of the memo sparked controversy, mainly along political lines. In a rare break from the Trump administration, the FBI expressed "grave concerns" about the accuracy of the memo.[11][12] House Republicans released the memo on the morning of February 2, 2018.

A social media campaign, under the hashtag ReleaseTheMemo, emerged in mid-January 2018 to publicly release the memo despite some of its classified contents. Russian-linked bots on Twitter helped spread the controversial hashtag.[13][14][15]

Background
The memo was produced by a small group of House Republicans and staff, led by Devin Nunes, as part of a secret partisan investigation into how the FBI used the Trump–Russia dossier.[17] Democratic committee members were not informed about the investigation into the FBI or the preparation of the memo, although under committee rules the minority is supposed to be consulted when an investigation is launched.[18] Adam Schiff, the Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, commented that Nunes hadn't read all of the relevant source material, though Nunes had argued for months that the FBI and DOJ had taken part in a conspiracy.[19] Nunes had previously recused himself from the committee's investigation into Russia's interference in U.S. elections[19] due to a House ethics investigation into Nunes' secret coordination with the White House. The House Ethics Committee stated that "Nunes may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information, in violation of House Rules, law, regulations, or other standards of conduct" (the ethics investigation ended when the committee was unable to obtain the relevant classified information).[20][21] However, after offering to step aside from the investigation into Russian interference, Nunes began his own "parallel" investigation, whose purpose appeared to be to undermine the original ongoing investigation.[22]

Contents

The memo states that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approved a FISA application to extend the surveillance of Carter Page into the spring of 2017. The memo accuses the FBI and the Justice Department of failing to provide enough information about Christopher Steele, author of the Trump-Russia dossier, to a FISA court judge.[23][24] The memo "suggests that the FBI may have relied on politically motivated or questionable sources to justify its request for a secret surveillance warrant" in the early phases of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.[2] Page himself, however had been under FISA surveillance for awhile and the successful renewal of the application documented by the memo means that the surveillance was producing "pertinent to intelligence-related collection" in regard the issue of Trump campaign's potential collusion with Russia.[25]

Adam Schiff and Democrats on the committee said Nunes' memo is inaccurate and that it omits key information on evidence other than Steele's dossier which was used in the application for the FISA warrant.[26]

The memo also inadvertently revealed that the spark for the FBI investigation into potential collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russians was not the Steele dossier, but rather the comments made by Trump adviser George Papadopoulos, who told an Australian diplomat in May 2016 that the Russians possessed "dirt" on Hillary Clinton in the form of hacked emails.[25]

January 19 events
The extension of the mass surveillance programs under the same FISA methods allegedly found problematic by the memo was signed into law on January 19, 2018.[27][28][4][29] A social media campaign emerged in January 19, 2018[30] to publicly release the memo despite some of its classified contents. Russian-linked bots on Twitter helped spread the controversial hashtag ReleaseTheMemo.[13][14][15] The memo, and its release, have been part of an effort by Trump's political allies to shift focus away from the ongoing Special Counsel investigation and to portray the investigators' conduct as the real scandal.[6]

Shortly after becoming a trending topic, the memo drew polarizing reactions from government officials and the media, generally along party lines.[31][32] The Justice Department (DOJ) released a letter to Congress calling a release of the memo without review "reckless" because it could expose intelligence sources and methods, while President Donald Trump called for its public release.[33] FBI Director Christopher Wray was allowed to read the memo and did so on January 28. On January 29, the majority of the House Intelligence Committee disregarded the DOJ's warnings and voted to approve its release.[34] In response to the memo, Democrats in the House Intelligence Committee drafted a ten-page rebuttal memo on January 24. Both memos were released to the full house.[35] The Republicans also voted against making public the competing memo Democrats had crafted, and rejected a proposal to give the Justice Department and FBI more time to vet the document. The President then had up to five days to review it before it could be released.[36]

Purpose
Carter Page has been the subject of FISA warrants by the FBI going back to 2014 when he was alleged to have been colluding with the Russian government or having knowingly worked as an agent on its behalf.[37] He originally came to the attention of the FBI counterintelligence unit prior to his becoming a Trump campaign adviser, when the unit learned that Russian spies were trying to use him as a source of information and tried to recruit him as an agent.[38][39] Subsequently Page claimed that the information he provided to the Russians was "innocuous".[38] The FISA warrants on Page have since been renewed more than once.[23]

Republicans posit that politically-motivated FBI employees have attempted to undermine the Trump presidency, citing the Trump–Russia dossier which was reportedly used as evidence for obtaining a FISA warrant to wiretap Page.[6] According to this argument, the FBI did not disclose to the FISA court that their request for a warrant was dependent on evidence in the Trump-Russia dossier, a document funded in part by the Hillary Clinton Presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).[7]

Trump's political allies have attempted for weeks to move attention away from the Special Counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.[6] In the hours before the expected release of the memo, sources reported that Trump told his associates that release of the memo would discredit the investigation.[8]

Social media influence
According to the Hamilton 68 project run by the bipartisan Alliance for Securing Democracy which tracks Russian propaganda efforts on Twitter, ReleaseTheMemo was promoted by Russian twitter bot accounts, with a 230,000 percent spike in the promotion of the hashtag by these accounts.[40][14][13][15] However, Twitter stated that a "preliminary analysis of available geographical data for tweets with the hashtag ReleaseTheMemo ... has not identified any significant activity connected to Russia with respect to tweets posting original content to this hashtag."[41] According to an analysis by CNN the hashtag was pushed by over a thousand newly created accounts, of which 460 were without a profile picture. CNN also noted that the hashtag was promoted by prominent American conservatives and Republicans, including Donald Trump Jr. and Mark Meadows.[42] WikiLeaks offered a reward to anyone submitting the document to them using the hashtag with a link to their upload site.[13]

Responses
On January 19, 2018, a growing number of Republicans began calling for the release of the memo.[43][44] In response to news surrounding the memo, Fox News host Sean Hannity directed a message at former FBI Director Robert Mueller, saying, "Your witch hunt is now over. Time to close the doors."[44] Donald Trump, Jr. has also been a major proponent of its release.

Democrats have pushed back on the memo, with Adam Schiff, Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, releasing a statement saying it is "[r]ife with factual inaccuracies" and is "meant only to give Republican House members a distorted view of the FBI."[45] In response to the memo, Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee drafted a ten-page rebuttal memo on January 24.[46][47] However, when the committee voted on partisan lines to release the Nunes memo, it also voted not to release the Democratic memo.[34]

Republicans sought a committee vote that would request the release through the President, which would keep the memo confined to committee members until the President responded.[48] The memo could be made public by a vote in the House of Representatives if the President does not act or denies the request, but no vote is scheduled for the full House. Glenn Greenwald called the campaign "a bizarre spectacle" since the Republicans are "holding a document that only they can release, while pretending to be advocating for its release."[49] Nunes and the House Intelligence Committee have denied access to the memo to the Senate Intelligence Committee and to the FBI, who stated a desire to investigate any alleged wrongdoing.[48] The Justice Department sent a letter to Nunes and called the release of the memo reckless.[1] Nunes' panel also refused to allow the FBI and the Department of Justice to view the memo, despite their requests.[50]

Adam Schiff released a statement and a letter to Devin Nunes at 19:00 on January 31, 2018, stating: "BREAKING: Discovered late tonight that Chairman Nunes made material changes to the memo he sent to White House – changes not approved by the Committee. White House therefore reviewing a document the Committee has not approved for release."[51][52] In response Peter King, who also sits on the Intelligence Committee, stated, "My understanding is this was agreed on beforehand among Republicans. There's one small part in the memo which in no way affects the substance in the memo." He said it involved removing only "three or four words" and came at the request of the FBI.[53]

Revelations about the Nunes memo and its surrounding controversy gave rise to comparisons to the Saturday night massacre, alluding to the firing of special prosecutor Archibald Cox by President Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal.[54][55][56][57]

On February 2, 2018, the disputed memo was published on the HPSCI website. In authorizing the release of the memo, the White House, in a statement from the counsel to the President, stressed that "the memorandum reflects the judgments of its congressional authors" and that the reason for its release was "significant public interest in the memorandum".[58]

Later that day John McCain rebuked his fellow Republicans with the statement, "The latest attacks against the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests ― no party's, no president's, only Putin's. ... If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin's job for him."[59]

Dodgy Dossier In Full ex Buzzfeed
QUOTE
These Reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia
January 11, 2017, at 1:20 a.m.
By Ken Bensinger (BuzzFeed News Reporter)
Miriam Elder

Mark Schoofs
(BuzzFeed News Investigations Editor)
A dossier making explosive — but unverified — allegations that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising information about him has been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.

The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, includes specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians. BuzzFeed News reporters in the US and Europe have been investigating various alleged facts in the dossier but have not verified or falsified them. CNN reported Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the report was given to President Obama and Trump.

Now BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.

The document was prepared for political opponents of Trump by a person who is understood to be a former British intelligence agent. It is not just unconfirmed: It includes some clear errors. The report misspells the name of one company, "Alpha Group," throughout. It is Alfa Group. The report says the settlement of Barvikha, outside Moscow, is "reserved for the residences of the top leadership and their close associates." It is not reserved for anyone, and it is also populated by the very wealthy.

The Trump administration's transition team did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News' request for comment. However, the president-elect's attorney, Michael Cohen, told Mic that the allegations were absolutely false.

"It's so ridiculous on so many levels," he said. "Clearly, the person who created this did so from their imagination or did so hoping that the liberal media would run with this fake story for whatever rationale they might have."

And Trump shot back against the reports a short time later on Twitter................

His former campaign manager and current senior White House adviser, Kellyanne Conway, also denied the claims during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers, adding that "nothing has been confirmed." She also said Trump was "not aware" of any briefing on the matter.

The documents have circulated for months and acquired a kind of legendary status among journalists, lawmakers, and intelligence officials who have seen them. Mother Jones writer David Corn referred to the documents in a late October column.

Harry Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson tweeted Tuesday that the former Senate Democratic leader had seen the documents before writing a public letter to FBI Director James Comey about Trump's ties to Russia. And CNN reported Tuesday that Arizona Republican John McCain gave a "full copy" of the memos to Comey on Dec. 9, but that the FBI already had copies of many of the memos.

Carter Page ex Wiki
The Wikipedia say that the man is twerp.
Carter William Page
(born June 3, 1971) is an American oil industry consultant and a former foreign-policy adviser to Donald Trump during his 2016 Presidential election campaign.[1] Page is the founder and managing partner of Global Energy Capital, a one-man investment fund and consulting firm specializing in the Russian and Central Asian oil and gas business.[2][3][4] He has been a focus of the 2017 Special Counsel investigation into links between Trump associates and Russian officials and Russian interference on behalf of Trump during the 2016 Presidential election.[2]

 

Mark Steyn Explains The Nunes Memo
Spying on Carter Page was the excuse they used to get at Donald Trump.
QUOTE
Well, the memo was released. You can read it in full here, and I recommend you do so because, on the evidence of much of Friday's TV and radio coverage, most commentators only want to talk about it in the most shallow political terms. Whereas the questions it raises about state corruption in an age of round-the-clock technological surveillance are far more profound.

Let's start with something I wrote back in October:

It seems a reasonable inference, to put it as blandly as possible, that the [Christopher Steele] dossier was used to justify the opening of what the Feds call an "FI" (Full Investigation), which in turn was used to justify a FISA order permitting the FBI to put Trump's associates under surveillance. Indeed, it seems a reasonable inference that the dossier was created and supplied to friendly forces within the bureau in order to provide a pretext for an FI, without which surveillance of the Trump campaign would not be possible.

So my view has always been that the dossier is not "evidence" but a mere simulacrum of evidence - a stage prop to lay before the FISA court judge to get him to sign off on Trump surveillance. Because a judge has to be given something before he'll cough up a warrant, even if what it is no more real than the "secret papers" in a spy thriller. Nevertheless, for a group of highly placed FBI and Department of Justice officials, it was a very crude calculation: No dossier, no surveillance..................

In order to pull that off, the fact that the dossier is garbage from a paid partisan could not be disclosed to the judge. Granted that the FISA court is a racket, the government is still bound before the bench by the most basic of lawyerly duties - candor toward the tribunal:

In an ex parte proceeding, a lawyer shall inform the tribunal of all material facts known to the lawyer that will enable the tribunal to make an informed decision, whether or not the facts are adverse.

In the "national security" sphere, the entire system is ex parte. Carter Page, the peripheral Trump campaign volunteer who was the target of the surveillance, was not represented in court...........

But the FBI didn't care what it did to Carter Page - because he was necessary to get them to Trump.............

The surveillance of Carter Page was a cover for the surveillance of Trump. The creation of the Steele dossier was a cover for the "Full Investigation" of the Trump campaign. The rumors of Kremlin "kompromat" are a cover for the widespread dissemination of Democrat "kompromat". And "foreign interference" in the US election is cover for domestic interference in the US election.

Christopher Steele ex Wiki
Christopher David Steele
(born 24 June 1964) is a founding director of Orbis Business Intelligence, a London-based private intelligence firm. He authored a dossier that claims Russia collected a file of compromising information on U.S. President Donald Trump.[1][2] Steele served as a British intelligence officer with the Secret Intelligence Service MI6 from 1987 until his retirement in 2009.

 

Robert Mueller ex Wiki  
He has a good track record, so his deviance is very disappointing.

Robert Swan Mueller III
(/ˈmʌlər/; born August 7, 1944) is an American lawyer and civil servant who was the sixth Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 2001 to 2013. A Republican, he was appointed by President George W. Bush and his original ten-year term was given a two-year extension by President Barack Obama, making him the longest-serving FBI director since J. Edgar Hoover. He is currently head of the Special Counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.

A graduate of Princeton University, Mueller served as a Marine Corps officer during the Vietnam War, receiving the Bronze Star Medal with Combat "V" for heroism and the Purple Heart Medal. After graduating from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1973, he worked at a private firm in San Francisco for three years until his appointment as an assistant U.S. Attorney in the same city. Prior to his appointment as FBI Director, Mueller served as a United States Attorney, as United States Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division and as Acting U.S. Deputy Attorney General.

In May 2017, Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as special counsel overseeing an ongoing investigation into alleged foreign electoral intervention by Russia in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.[3]

 

Mark Steyn Comments:-
In order to pull that off, the fact that the dossier is garbage from a paid partisan could not be disclosed to the judge. Granted that the FISA court is a racket, the government is still bound before the bench by the most basic of lawyerly duties - candour toward the tribunal:

In the "national security" sphere, the entire system is ex parte. Carter Page, the peripheral Trump campaign volunteer who was the target of the surveillance, was not represented in court. In fact, he did not even know he was on "trial". A year and a half after he attracted the attentions of Deputy Director McCabe and his chums, Mr Page has not been charged with a single crime, never mind (to be old-fashioned about these things) convicted of one. Indeed, the only reason he is even aware that he is/was under 24/7 surveillance by the panopticon state is because McCabe's FBI found it politic to leak that fact to the newspapers - via the coy disclosure that he briefly came under FISA surveillance as "Male-1" five years earlier.

Nunes Memo Number 2 Is Coming [ 13 February 2018 ]
QUOTE
A second memo is on the horizon as Nunes gears up to launch the next strike in his investigation into the FBI............

As Democrats and Republicans continue brawling over the Russia probe, House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes is gearing up to release a second memo as part of his investigation into perceived bias within the FBI and Department of Justice.

Nunes's much-hyped first memo, which was declassified last week, purports to show the FBI and DOJ abusing their surveillance authority by omitting "material and relevant" facts when submitting an application for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant against Carter Page, a former adviser to President Donald Trump's campaign.

Much of the Republican document also questioned the FBI's decision to use the Steele dossier — an explosive collection of memos by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele alleging collusion between Trump and Russia — as a "roadmap" in the Russia investigation. 

Nunes's next memo, meanwhile, will focus on alleged abuses at the Department of State and a second Trump-Russia dossier compiled by Cody Shearer,  a controversial political activist with close ties to the Clinton family [ Meet Cody Shearer, the Strangest Character in Hillary’s Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy ], according to a Republican familiar with the details. 

The existence of the second dossier was reported [ admitted ] by The Guardian last week. Shearer gave the dossier to Obama State Department official Jonathan Winer, who passed it along to Steele, according to The Atlantic. Steele gave the document to the FBI in October 2016 and said some of its findings also aligned with information he had obtained from his own sources.

The Business Insider tells all, or does it? It is worth Reading, what Marxists call Deconstructing, looking for the bias, omissions, half truths, the outright lies. Do a count of the key propaganda words - alleged [ x 2 ], claim [ x 2 ], bias [ x 3 ], purport [ x 3 ]. Devin Nunes, of the House Intelligence Committee has accused certain men. They deny everything of course. This one needs following to the real source of corruption,  Hillary Clinton, a foul mouthed shrew who took $145 million as a bribe from the Russians. NB The Oxfam Story has surfaced just in time to divert us. And, Yes the Main Stream Media are liars hiding the truth.
