Report: Author of dossier against Trump goes into hiding
Arutz Sheva ^ | 12/1/17

Posted on 01/11/2017 11:24:56 PM PST by Eleutheria5

A former British intelligence officer said to have prepared the recent dossier containing unverified allegations about President-elect Donald Trump’s activities and connections in Russia, has reportedly gone into hiding.

According to a report in The Telegraph, Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier who now heads a private security and investigation firm, is “terrified for his safety” and has fled his home in Surrey, England.

A source close to Steele said Wednesday that Steele fears a “prompt and potentially dangerous” reaction from Moscow.

Really? Are we sure this was entirely an independent hit on Trump, done for free, because it was just made up at no expense??

Makes no sense for this guy to go into hiding. All he needs to do is tweet the real source, and that he punked Republican hack who was so dumb he passed it on as real and the scumbag media ran with since all the arrows in their arsenal had failed.

This sets off my BS detector to full strength.

The report has supposedly been circulating for months. Does Steele think that Vlad’s buddies would not have heard of it long ago if it really was from them.

He could not have once been a professional and not known that.

I suspect he disappeared but only to save his own hide when Hillary finds out that she was snookered out of whatever she paid for the story. Hillary’s friends are just as lethal as Vlad’s.

It’s possible that this entire thing is being stirred by some powerful people who want 1. America and Russia to remain enemies, even if they don’t start slinging ICBMs at each other, and 2. Want to keep ISIS around. It could be that Chan4 and Steele are each playing a separate part in the scheme, but all choreographed and compartmentalized.

Kind of like the Democrats who — when they really screw up big-time — claim they're "receiving death threats."

Next stop is usually the memory hole, although the memory hole is usually lined with cash, in their case.

The original news story above is spy agency Disinformation.

First of all, the Russians have no reason to kill “Steele” and every reason to keep him alive to embarrass the CIA.

“Steele's” report wasn't created by the Russians...which is how you know that the news story above is more Fake News.

Instead, that report was used by someone who is trying to take Trump down. Someone like our own CIA.

Spy games.

“Steele” may not even exist...might just be a journalistic construct, but if he does exist, then it's our own CIA who would have the motive to kill him to attempt to limit the damage that his Fake News is causing them.

4Chan claims to have fabricated the anti-Trump report as a hoax by a a member of the chatboard as “fanfiction”, then sent it to Rick Wilson, who proceeded to send it to the CIA, which then put it in their official classified intelligence report on the election. This is how rumors work.

Rick Wilson has a history of such vile. That McCain got into the act should destroy his place in the Senate. He should fear the Russians, too. Wilson should also go into hiding. The Russians do not like their reputation smeared by rumor.

Wish he Steele would take Sen. Mc Cain with him. Demented McCain thought his role would stay hidden with CNN protecting his name as source of leak.

No, the 4Chan prankster is not Christopher Steele. However, some are saying Steele is a patsy to hide that the media, McCain, and the CIA were hoaxed by 4Chan or someone else. Or not.

From same link:

The Guardian reports that Steele collected his information from Russian sources he trusted, including those in Moscow and oligarchs living in the western part of the country.

“He delivered his reports, but the gravity of their contents weighed on him. If the allegations were real, their implications were overwhelming,” The Guardian reports, so he went to the FBI as well. He never heard back from them.

He later met with Senator John McCain after a former senior western diplomat who had seen the documents told the Arizona senator about them, according to The Guardian:

The emissary hastily arranged a transatlantic flight and met the source at the airport as arranged. (The Guardian has agreed not to specify the city or country where the meeting took place.) The meeting had a certain cold war tradecraft to it, as he was told to look for a man with a copy of the Financial Times. Having found each other, the retired counter-intelligence officer drove the emissary to his house, where they discussed the documents and their background.

The emissary flew back within 24 hours and showed McCain the documents, saying it was hard to impossible to verify them without a proper investigation. McCain said he was reluctant to get involved, lest it be perceived as payback for insulting remarks Trump had made about him during his rambunctious campaign.

McCain later gave the documents to the FBI, despite hesitation about getting involved because he had been targeted by Trump in the past.

“Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue,” the senator said in a statement to The Guardian.

McCain is such a slime ball. This should ruin him, but the Senate is too polite to one another. They are all in the club.

“My good friend..Senator XXX...”
“We sometimes disagree...””
“I respect his position...”

B.S.!!

McCain is a Traitor in the truest sense of the world.

That whole excerpt has a definite spy-novel sort of faux derring-do air about it.

I’m reminded of nothing so much as that ridiculous Valerie Plame thing.

Fiction. Worthy of Bulwer-Lytton. Dark and stormy night stuff.

4Chan trolls write more believably than the Guardian or whomever has them doing their bidding.

Sorry, I don’t believe it. From several reviews there were simply too many errors in the report to believe that it actually was prepared by a professional.

It’s just the Globalists trying to find some excuse to keep Trump out of office, or get him to surrender to their agenda.

I think Chris Steele is a bad pun or reference to those movies

This wasn’t to take down Trump it was to take down Rick Wilson and the media

I agree.

Problem is that it is now impossible to believe ANY news from ANY source.

McCain supposedly has admitted to giving the report to the FBI, if we can believe that report. I have not seen him on T.V. saying that. If I see him saying that, is it really him or a double. Has he been kidnapped by aliens and replaced???

He had to get the report from someone. Is it fiction that he sent someone to meet an agent with a newspaper? O.K., maybe the report was sent to him via U.P.S.

He is still a slime ball.

No, that's exactly why McCrisis did it. Trump triggered that old cuck hard. McCrisis never had to accept that paper, and further he never had to pass it on the Alphabets.

"CNN has reported that the report paid for first by anti-Trump Republicans during the presidential primary, and then was also funded by Democrats.

The BBC reports a super PAC supporting Jeb Bush’s campaign first commissioned the report from the D.C. firm FusionGPS. Steele continued working for FusionGPS after Trump’s win, and his research was passed on to Democratic Party figures, and eventually the media.

...[Steele] went to the FBI as well. He never heard back from them. He later met with Senator John McCain after a former senior western diplomat who had seen the documents told the Arizona senator about them, according to The Guardian." -Tom Cleary, Heavy.com

All he needs to do is tweet the real source,


That WOULD get him killed. I think he didn’t write it; that the story started from 4chan, was passed around from June 2016 to October 2016 with nobody biting. Then somebody started the whole Russia hacked election meme, based on this story, but by not defining the “evidence”, gave CIA/FBI/15 other agencies plausible deniability.

Once Buzzfeed published the full monte (as in 3-card), literate people were able to pick apart the “evidence” within hours. What I have been told is that story went from Anon at 4chan to Rick Wilson, to Evan McMillan, who conflated it with “MI-6 source” Christopher Steele, passing it on to Senator (S) “Songbird” John McCain, who was one of several to hand it to James Comey, who leaked it to the press, which made it marginally acceptable to print (in the eyes of people involved in reckless disregard for the truth, that is to say the state-run media.)
