Good recap on the origins of the dossier and the players involved. Last 4 minutes of Part 2 => Asks what did Obama know and when. Thinks entire US intelligence apparatus could be involved in cover-up.

Thanks for posting!
Ping to the question being asked on the John Batchelor show:
“what did 0 know & when did he know it ?”
If your in mid America flyover country at 9pm CST You can get him on Chicago’s WLS am 890 following Levin.
He is totally contemptuous of the NYT and WP.
It’s Russo-Democrat disinformation.
I didn’t hear Cohen this time but for the past 30 plus years he has been a Soviet disinformation purveyor. He was strongly criticized in a 1980/1983 Wash. Post article about the Soviets and missiles (Don’t have the front page of it), and in 1983, he wrote a piece about how strong the Soviet economy was in a rebuttal to Reagan’s strategy of building a strong defense program to cause the Soviet Union to collapse from defense spending they could not afford.
The article “The Soviet Union Is No Basket Case: It is strong and stable because the Kremlin keeps its promises”, Stephen F. Cohen, (is a professor of politics at Princeton Un. and writes a monthly column from which this article it taken). Wash. Post, Aug. 21, 1983, Columns section.
“The Nation” was taken over by the Communist Party USA when McCarey Williams became its’ editor in the earlier half of the 20th century. Then came Communist Party cover-upper Victor Navasky, who then worked with Cohen’s far left wife, Katrina Van Den Heuvel, who is still there today.
Also, far-left smear artists such as David Corn wrote for The Nation (he’s now at “Mother Jones”, a longtime Marxist magazine and one of those who is spreading disinformation about the Steele Dossier.
Welcome to the wonderful world of subversion and treason.
He structures his show into devoted segments always chock full of information and concludes with a musical signature sung titled “Midnight” which comes from the movie “The Shinning”
One of his guests discussed the sun, no sunspots, and its cooling off into a possible ice age while dismissing claims about the Polar bears dying off when they are expanding .
All you need to know is that he is married to Kristina Vanden Heuvel, editor of The Nation and vicious leftist.

Cohen points out that it was then CIA director John Brennan who said during a television interview that he got suspicious of Donald Trump's connections to Russia in 2015, long before the emergence of Carter Page and the Steele dossier and that this was reported at the time by both Wapo and the NYT.
Because the CIA isn't supposed to investigate American citizens he would have had to pass that off to then Dir. Comey at the FBI which also would have included the Dir. National Intelligence James Clapper.
If Cohen is contempuous of the NYT amd Wapo its because they knew the real origins of the Trump/Russia-gate scandal and chose to ignore it.
