[Editors Note: In this special Just Security article, highly respected former member of the CIAs Senior Intelligence Service, John Sipher examines the Steele dossier using methods that an intelligence officer would to try to validate such information. Sipher concludes that the dossiers information on campaign collusion is generally credible when measured against standard Russian intelligence practices, events subsequent to Steeles reporting, and information that has become available in the nine months since Steeles final report. The dossier, in Siphers view, is not without fault, including factual inaccuracies. Those errors, however, do not detract from an overarching framework that has proven to be ever more reliable as new revelations about potential Trump campaign collusion with the Kremlin and its affiliates has come to light in the nine months since Steele submitted his final report.]

They were pretty excited on FOX about the breaking news of the dossier funding, and justifiably so. I clicked on CNN to see what they had to say. The pitch was, “Perhaps the Dems paid for it, but the content was mostly true and backed up by our intelligence agencies.” Plan B.

I see what you did there...
That was WAY over my head!
