Christopher Steele, the British agent behind the anti-Trump dossier, reportedly wrote a second dossier which was never released. He also allegedly got help from some high ranking Democrats.
The Washington Examiner has the story:
Dossier author Steele wrote another anti-Trump memo; was fed info by Clinton-connected contact, Obama State Department
A newly released document from the Senate Judiciary Committee says Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the Trump dossier, wrote an additional memo on the subject of Donald Trump and Russia that was not among those published by BuzzFeed in January 2017.
The newly released document is an unclassified and heavily redacted version of the criminal referral targeting Steele filed on Jan. 4 by Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. It appears to confirm some level of coordination between the extended Clinton circle and the Obama administration in the effort to seek damaging information about then-candidate Trump.
According to the referral, Steele wrote the additional memo based on anti-Trump information that originated with a foreign source. In a convoluted scheme outlined in the referral, the foreign source gave the information to an unnamed associate of Hillary and Bill Clinton, who then gave the information to an unnamed official in the Obama State Department, who then gave the information to Steele.
It really looks as though there was a conspiracy to keep Trump out of office. And when they couldn’t do that, the second option was to damage him.
