This is truly staggering news.
From Chuck Ross’s article for dailycaller.com, we have this sick, dictatorship-quality information:
- Former British spy Christopher Steele peddled an unfounded rumor in December 2016 that Michael Flynn had an extramarital affair with a Russian woman, according to documents released earlier in May.
- Months before Steele discussed Flynn, the FBI offered to pay the ex-spy to collect intelligence on Flynn and other Trump associates who were the targets of a counterintelligence investigation.
An FBI offer to pay former British spy Christopher Steele to collect intelligence on Michael Flynn in the weeks before the 2016 election has been one of the more overlooked revelations in a Justice Department inspector general’s report released in December.
The reference to the FBI proposal, which was made in an Oct. 3, 2016, meeting in an unidentified European city, has received virtually no press attention. But it might have new significance following the recent release of government documents that show that Steele peddled an unfounded rumor that Flynn had an extramarital affair with a Russian woman in the United Kingdom.
Is this the United States of America you know? Is the USA a place where internal investigative entities use foreign nationals to perform “counterintelligence operations” against its own citizens for political reasons?
How dirty does this have to get before our mainstream media finally stop looking the other way and start writing about this (to my knowledge) unprecedented sickness that infested the previous administration?
Or are they too afraid of daring to criticize Barack Obama and his people – the ones so many media people have made fools of themselves by protecting at all costs until now?
When do they retrieve their integrity and go after the perpetrators of these actions – actions far more worthy of Putin’s Russia than anyone’s USA?
To say that it is way overdue is to understate.
