The article was extremely biased in favor of Steele, despite the fact that many of his accusations have been unverified and likely false.
However, some of the information in the piece were unfavorable for Steele.
Here are the DCNF’s 6 new revelations:
- Steele likely knew that the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign helped fund the dossier.
- Despite the fact that Fusion GPS Founder Glenn Simpson testified, under oath, to Congress that Steele didn’t pay sources or sub-sources, the article claims that Steele paid “dozens of confidential ‘collectors’ around the world.”
- There might be a “financial trail between Deripaska and Orbis,” which means that Steele may have paid pro-Putin Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.
- The baseless “PeeGate” accusation was based on “four sources, but their reports were secondhand.”
- Steele briefed the author of the New Yorker piece, Jane Mayer, during the 2016 presidential campaign. She is one of several mainstream media journalists to have been contacted and briefed off-the-record by Steele before Election Day.
- David Kramer, a McCain Institute staffer and former Bush administration official, came up with a BIG idea: “to have McCain confront Trump with the evidence, in the hope that Trump would resign.” Kramer denied the claim.
Aside from these six revelations, Meyer also claimed that Russia blocked Mitt Romney from being appointed secretary of state. However, TheDCNF’s Chuck Ross points out that it’s likely not true.
This was based on a single source who told Steele they heard chatter from the Kremlin. https://t.co/ed68ZpsLKb
