EXCLUSIVE: Christopher Steele may have handed at least one of his dossier memos to the UK's highest ranking security official, who works for the Prime Minister, @theresa_may - THREAD
Some background first. Take a look at this little noticed quote from #resistance member Luke Harding's book "Collusion". Steele apparently handed at least one of his dossier memos (potentially more) to "the" top UK security official, a "former colleague from his days at SIS[MI6]"
Steele is a confirmed source for Harding - they met in person at his Orbis office in London. Steele no doubt provided much of the material for Harding, as he recycles all the dossier allegations. So this handover likely happened, we just don't know WHO the anonymous official was
So, who is it?

CHARLES FARR, the Chair of UK Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC)

This is based on an analysis of public records, leaked MI6 undercover officer information and comparing career timelines of Steele and his ex colleagues
The JIC coordinates the UK intelligence agencies (eg MI6, MI5 & GCHQ). The chair has *direct access to the Prime Minister*. The JIC also maintains “liaison” with foreign intelligence agencies, e.g FBI, NSA, CIA

Source: UK National Intelligence Machinery: assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/upl…
Who is CHARLES FARR? The Times newspaper quoted a former colleague in 2012 describing him as 'messianic', 'very emotional', and 'on a mission'. As well as extremely secretive: thetimes.co.uk/article/charle…
Prior to JIC Chair, Farr's previous role was head of the Office of Security & Counter Terrorism (OSCT), which regulates surveillance interception as part of the Home Office. In 2014 he fronted a government PR campaign for mass surveillance of social media: theguardian.com/world/2014/jun…
The Prime Minister Theresa May ran the Home Office at the time Farr ran the OSCT, so they are close colleagues both in their current roles as PM and JIC Chair AND their prior roles
What is the evidence it is CHARLES FARR? Well, the person that Harding describes *could* also fit one other role: the UK National Security Advisor. This was Sir Mark Lyall Grant in '16. BUT, they ALSO need to be a "former colleague" of Steele's at MI6, which Grant wasn't
The only person who fits both is FARR. A leaked list of from MI6 confirms he *was an undercover MI6 officer*, based in London between 1995-2006. Chris Steele was also posted undercover to London at this time, 1993-1998. Their MI6 positions AND locations overlap for at least 2 yrs
So, Steele gave his Trump dossier allegations (*at least* one memo) to a close colleague of the UK Prime Minister - Charles Farr, Chair of the JIC - who coordinates the output of the UK's Intelligence Agencies and handles foreign liaison with the most senior UK security officials
It's not credible that FARR did NOTHING with these memos. Or that Steele didn't pass on his whole dossier even prior to that. From public reporting we *already know as early as July/Aug 2016 that the dossier was given to MI6 & GCHQ & thereafter to the CIA*
What analysis was done by the JIC? Was that memo and/or whole dossier taken seriously? Who vetted it? Gave the dossier to MI6/GCHQ and onto the Americans? What was FARR's role? Did he brief the Prime Minister or Foreign Secretary? And, for @dbongino, were OFFICIAL channels used?
What did the UK Prime Minister know and when did she know it?

Bonus: Charles Farr may have more important connections to the Russia story than just Christopher Steele. Take a look at some of the attendees of the Global Strategy Forum security conference where he was a participant:

Alexander Downer
Sir Richard Dearlove
Dr. Stefan Halper
You probably know most of these characters already, but they have even more pervasive connections between each other than publicly reported to date & are involved in initiating what appear to be fishing expedition meetings with Trump team officials over many months in 2016
I will lay this out in a future thread #Business
Here is the follow up on Hakluyt:
ADDENDUM: On Sat May 12 I emailed the Media Response Team at the UK Cabinet Office, asking for clarification or comment on whether Steele handed his memo(s) to Charles Farr

No response....

"I don't think editors and bosses were trying to tank [BK's] nomination" —@brianstelter

Okay, who at the WaPo green lit putting a blatantly anti-Kavanaugh activist reporter on a "throwing ice" story?

The WaPo editorial page itself opposed his nomination too. Who writes that? 🤔
Who at @CNN allowed Josh Campbell (ex FBI close to Comey) to "interview" Monica McLean (also ex FBI) to get a narrative out there without any disclosure of that fact?

At least when @JamesAGagliano voucher for McLean he fully disclosed his past working with her
Who at @NBCNews allowed a piece to attack "white women" for the BK confirmation?

"Economist @paulkrugman Says GDP Won't Grow by 3%"

Krugman said this in Mar 2017. Let's revisit it with the Sep 2018 job numbers
“We’re pretty close to full employment” @paulkrugman

—THEN: 4.5% in March 2017 when this statement was made
—NOW: 3.7% in Sep 2018

That 0.8% difference is equivalent to 2,898,000 million more people employed

If Monica McLean is the "lifelong best friend" of Dr. Ford, and McLean hasn't submitted a sworn statement to the Senate supporting Ford's story...

...That means Dr. Ford knew a 24yr veteran of the FBI/DOJ and didn't ever confide in *her* about Kavanaugh?

But she did discuss it with unspecified "beach friends" and mentioned her alleged assault by a federal judge to several other friends out of the clear blue. Got it

"Keyser's attorney...confirmed that his client has spoken with the FBI and that when she did so she could not corroborate Ford's account...she [doubled down], denied all knowledge of the supposed party, the alleged assault OR OF KAVANAUGH"
"Injury forced [Keyser] to step down from her role as a golf coach at Georgetown University [and] have plagued her for years.

'Leland is not a well woman. She has had years of injuries that have seen her have 14 operations on her neck and back. She just wants to get better.'"
'It really felt a lot like Christine was the one called to the principal's office to give an account of something and just threw her under the bus. You know, just reached for a name.'

Number of times Dr. Ford has changed her story:

—when it happened: 5X
—who was there: 5X
—where it was: 2X (at least)

And after all those changes?

STILL VAGUE on when/who/where


—"Late teens" (could be up to '86)
—"Mid 1980s" (*not even HS)
—"Summer of 1982"
—"Early 1980s"

—Near to Country Club
—Between Country Club & home
