It was Barzini Hillary all along.
The Great Reckoning has begun. In a bombshell mea culpa posted today, CNN admits, in essence, that the infamous Steele dossier alleging that Donald Trump as blackmailed into serving Vladimir Putin should be called “the Clinton dossier.” In words that CNN suggests but cannot bring itself to say: the Russian Collusion hoax was a Democrat(ic) party insurrection designed to bring down the presidency of Donald Trump in its infancy. In CNN’s own words:
Legitimate questions are now being raised about the dossier — how it was used by Democrats as a political weapon against Trump, how it was handled by the FBI and US intelligence agencies, and how it was portrayed in the mainstream media.
CNN — itself a hoax super spreader — now admits “Democratic officials, the media … initially hyped Steele’s work.” The Werkes excerpts this ground-breaking admission from the heart of the mainstream lamestream news media:
Democrats’ hidden hand revealed
Trump swiftly rejected Steele’s claims and said a “group of opponents … put that crap together.” Nearly five years later, it’s clearer than ever that he wasn’t too far off about the origins of the dossier.
Democratic involvement in Steele’s work was much deeper than previously known. Court filings from the John Durham inquiry recently revealed that some information in the dossier originated from Charles Dolan, 71, a public relations executive with expertise in Russian affairs who had a decades-long political relationship with the Clinton family. …
Clinton’s allies prod the FBI
The Danchenko indictment raises new concerns about the circular nature of portions of Steele’s work, and how it fit into a larger effort by Democrats to dirty up Trump. Clinton’s campaign funded the project, and we now know that much of the material in Steele’s memos ended up being mere political gossip. Steele then sent his explosive but unverified findings to the FBI and State Department.
While Steele was passing his tips onto the FBI in fall 2016, a Clinton campaign lawyer separately met with a senior FBI official and gave him information about strange cyberactivity between servers at the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, the largest private bank in Russia. …
Critics of the Russia probe — conservative pundits, Republican lawmakers and Trump himself — took a victory lap after the inspector general blasted the Page FISA applications. That’s because the inspector general’s report confirmed what many of them had argued all along, including in a highly disputed memo from GOP Rep. Devin Nunes: That there were systemic problems with the FBI surveillance of someone tied to the Trump, and the Steele dossier was improperly used to influence part of the Russia probe.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Trump, Republicans, Fox News and the Wall Street Journal were right all along.
