Christopher Steele is a hero and Americans owe him their thanks

A significant portion of the Steele Dossier was confirmed in the latest Mueller indictments The attacks on Christopher Steele piss me off. I really believe that this man tried to help our country and that these attacks are pure BS https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/democracy-post/wp/2018/02/14/christopher-steele-is-a-hero-and-americans-owe-him-their-thanks/?hpid=hp_no-name_opinion-card-c%3Ahomepage%2Fstory&utm_term=.3cdc37fc80e5

Christopher Steele, the former British spy whose claims about Donald Trump’s ties with Russia hold center stage in Washington right now, drives Republicans crazy. They have recommended that the Department of Justice open a criminal investigation into his work. They released a formerly classified memo by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) that vilifies him — and now they are holding back a Democratic brief that tries to correct the record. Their Fox News minions have promised damning new revelations about Steele’s perfidy on a near-weekly basis. (Sebastian Gorka called the Nunes memo “one hundred times bigger” than the causes of the American Revolution — hyperbole that seems to have embarrassed even his friends.)

Yet, try as they might, Steele continues to haunt them. You sense it in the tone of frustration and anxiety. “There’s nothing to see here,” they keep insisting. And insisting. And insisting.

What is it about Steele that possesses them so? Could it be that his findings from the summer of 2016 — when the world was still wondering why Trump kept saying such nice things about Russia’s Vladimir Putin — proved so extraordinarily prescient?

Long before the U.S. intelligence community arrived at its conclusion that the Russians were trying to influence the presidential election, Steele had already sussed out the basic ingredients of the campaign. In June 2016, he already knew about ties between the Kremlin and Trump aides (specifically Carter Page and Paul Manafort), and he knew that Russian hackers had stolen documents from the Democratic National Committee that they planned to use against Hillary Clinton. Former CIA agent John Sipher has noted that several of Steele’s early assertions “turned out to be stunningly accurate.”

Last Friday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) rebuked her Republican colleagues for recommending the criminal probe of Steele. She accused them of trying to undermine the FBI and the investigation being conducted by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, and of attacking Steele as a way of “deflecting attention from collusion and obstruction of justice investigations.” And then she added, almost as an afterthought: “Not a single revelation in the Steele dossier has been refuted.” Ouch!

1. Only a leftist would consider a proven liar and colluder with Russia a hero.

Of course that describes hill perfectly too.

3. Steele is a political hack....

.....that hates Donald Trump. His intentions were not in the best interest of the United States. His intentions were selfish.

Thankfully, he has been exposed as a phony.

It’s tough for the left to accept that the Russian collusion narrative is falling apart right in front of them.

6. The contents of the Steele dossier came from Sydney Blumenthal

and other Russian operatives. Hillary will be going to jail for paying $1.4 million to a foreign government for dirt on her political opponent and receiving $140 million for approving the sale of our Uranium to a foreign adversary.

10. Wrong wrong wrong

Blumenthal was not involved in the creation of the dossier. By the time information from Blumenthal arrived the dossier was nearly complete. Hillary will not go to jail for engaging in legal opposition research. She did not pay $1.4 million to a foreign government. Hillary was not involved in the sale of our uranium to a foreign adversary. She was not paid $140 million to approve.
