A second look at the Steele dossier-knowing what we know now. (Barf Alert)

[Editor’s Note: In this special Just Security article, highly respected former member of the CIA’s 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 dossier’s information on campaign collusion is generally credible when measured against standard Russian intelligence practices, events subsequent to Steele’s reporting, and information that has become available in the nine months since Steele’s final report. The dossier, in Sipher’s 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.]

This is the old “keep repeating the lie enough and they’ll believe it” routine.

But that doesn’t work once everyone KNOWS it’s all a lie. Then you just look stupid repeating the lie and expecting people to buy it.

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.
