Look how this 'reporter' for the @nytimes frames this news:

They literally can't handle where the evidence went on the Steele dossier, that's still unverified, that HRC/DNC paid for it, or that it was used for FISA warrants to spy on Trump's team.
#ClintonFoundation has already been trending all day.

Now with this news, #ChristopherSteele and #SteeleDossier will join it.
If the investigators found enough evidence to charge Steele with criminal acts, you can bet Simspon, Fritsch, Marc Elias and Podesta are next.

For perjury, at the very least.
Remember, Podesta brought Elias to Congressional hearings where he was asked questions about the Steele Dossier, when Elias had helped hide the Hillary campaign/DNC's funding of the dossier by running the $ through his law firm, Perkins Coie.
Elias NEVER REVEALED HIS ROLE in setting up this scheme to hide the HRC campaign/DNC's funding of the dossier by running the $ through Perkins Coie.

Podesta *had* to have known about it as well.
If, as @LeeSmithDC has theorized in a recent column, NELLIE OHR actually wrote most or all of the Russian sections of the dossier, with Steele basically functioning as a front man, if Steele claimed authorship to investigators, that was perjury.
Remember when Congress referred Lois Lerner to then-Attorney General Eric Holder for criminal charges for all the crimes the IRS committed?

And nothing happened?


Well that won't happen this time.
That's not Barack Obama in the White House any more.

That's not Eric Holder running the Justice Dept. Or Loretta Lynch.

Gird your loins, folks.
When the DOJ IG and Senate & House committees send up criminal referrals for Steele, Simpson, Elias, Podesta and a whole bunch of others, it's not going to be quietly buried and ignored like it was when the Obama Mafia was running things up there.
Clarification via @ChuckRossDC: Steele is being referred for criminal charges for LYING TO FBI AGENTS:

Specifically, the report is Steele lied to FBI agents about his efforts to 'disseminate' the dossier info. That is, the efforts Steele - and others - put into traveling around to various news outlets & trying to get them to publish the dossiers allegations.
As we now know thanks to the Michael Flynn prosecution, lying to FBI agents is A Very Serious Thing.
Steele and others relentlessly shopped that dossier all over the news media trying to find somebody that would publish it's allegations, and this was BEFORE the election.

Only AFTER the election was over did Buzzfeed finally publish it, as a way to give an immediate boost to the Trump/Russia collusion narrative.

You know how a jet fighter launches chaff to throw the enemy off the target?

I'm halfway convinced it was the **TRUMP TEAM ITSELF** in the White House sending out people to be anonymous sources spreading these "OMG Kushner is an IDIOT!" stories in the Fake News Media.
Trump is a master of information warfare.

If anybody started putting 2 and 2 together and snooping around what Kushner was up to, I can totally see the White House sending people out to anonymously seed the media with stories like...this:

All the anonymous sources were in agreement: this Kushner guy is just benefiting from having married Trump's daughter, he's in way WAY over his head, has got no clue what he's doing.

Hi @seanmdav.

For a guy who calls out the Fake News Media an awful lot, you sure seem to trust what they tell you when it suits you.

Somebody who **actually** listened to Wray's testimony **instead of** getting their "Cliff Notes" from the Fake News Media:

My friend @Shem_Infinite:

There is no excuse for this. You're getting your "hot take" on what Wray actually testified from a Huffpost Reporter?

Do better.

We already saw this movie.

Didn't we already see this movie?

I think we all already saw this movie.

The only thing **different** about how Comey won't answer the questions put to him by these Congressional commitees [other than the standard "I don't recall"] is he won't be saying:

"I can't comment on that because it's currently part of an ongoing federal investigation."
Instead Comey will be saying THIS:

"On the advice of my legal counsel, I invoke my Fifth amendment rights."


"My counsel has advised me not to discuss this, and so I won't."

To people endlessly asking me if President Trump is aware of and taking steps to combat this whole "Color Revolution" playbook:

Yes, he is aware of it.

Yes, he is taking steps to deal with it.

No, he's not going to tell you what they are.
The biggest assumption people make is because Trump hasn't **publicly rolled out** his strategy for dealing with this threat that is all over the media & we're all talking about it is because....he's blind to it.

Utter nonsense.

Trump does not reveal things until HE'S READY TO DO THAT.

And he will only do that when there's nothing the enemy can do to sabotage his efforts.

Look at what just happened YESTERDAY.

Yeah. Durham's wrapped.

That's why they are issuing the subpoenas now.

I've had to endlessly explain this for going on 2 years now:

While the investigation is ongoing, you wouldn't learn anything from subpoenaing these goons because they'd do what COMEY & STRZOK & Mueller & everybody else did when they testified before Congress.

How many times did you want to hear over and over

"I'm sorry I cannot answer that question because the matter is currently under investigation by the Dept. of Justice" or the dozen of variations to that?

Because THAT'S what you would have heard before now.

You know I'm right.

A whole lot of people get SpyGate stuff wrong because they don't know the timeline of the actual events.

So here's a handy reference you can use:

Given to what's coming, I want to draw your attention to THESE two events that occurred in early March, 2016. Image
THIS got memory-holed. But pay attention. There will be a quiz later. Image
