Which careening out-of-control storyline will explode before making it across the finish line?
That’s the last thing Mueller or any of the 100 percent Democrat lawyers who came up empty on their Russians-stole-the-2016 election-by-colluding-with-Trump conspiracy, want you to know.
But the cat’s somehow been let out of the bag on exactly where Steele came up with the lies he was paid to pass on to the FBI.
The conspiracy they latched on to and kept alive for the last two-and-a-half years is about to come undone right before the eyes of the masses.
And as sure as day follows night, there’s a race to the finish line now taking place with the Mueller race car and the Dirty Dossier one about to careen out of control.
When Dirty Dossier author Christopher Steele was hired by the DNC to take down Donald Trump, he was given fail-proof leeway. Steele, who was to cut and run, as soon as it became known he was the Dirty Dossier author was told as a hireling, “the dirtier the better” before being pointed in the direction of the online CNN iReport.
So, in reality, Steele was sent off to a manure-laden field to dig for his anti-Trump dirt.
Anybody—including Hillary Clinton or any of her third party surrogates—could have posted the filth copied by Steele for his debunked Dirty Dossier.
Whose dirty mind came up with the “Golden Shower” accusation?
CNN’s iReport was functioning from 2007 to 2015 with the boast that it posted some 300,000 random posts monthly.
It stopped random posts in 2015.
‘Old CNN website was source of unvetted ‘random’ info used by author of anti-Trump dossier, docs reveal’ (Fox News, March 16, 2019
“Former British spy Christopher Steele confessed that he used an unverified report submitted to a CNN website, where “random individuals” can post information, for his salacious anti-Trump dossier.”
Were the surrogates of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama among the “random individuals” posting information to the CNN iReport website?
Did the FBI rely mostly on these “random” posts in applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court in seeking to surveil Trump aide Carter Page?
“Steele made the awkward revelation during a deposition last year in a case involving Russian entrepreneur Aleksej Gubarev, who claims his companies Webzilla and XBT Holdings were defamed by Steele after the dossier was published by BuzzFeed. (Fox News)
“Steele was asked during the deposition how he verified allegations about Gubarev’s companies and whether he found “anything of relevance concerning Webzilla,” according to the newly released transcripts of the deposition.
“We did. It was an article I have got here which was posted on July 28, 2009, on something called CNN iReport,” Steele said.”
The July 28, 2009 story in question on the iReport has been lost in Cyberspace.
This is how CNN describes its iReport:
“The CNN iReport, states that it’s a “user-generated site” and warns that “the stories submitted by users are not edited, fact-checked or screened before they post.” (Fox News)
Even the site’s banner included the slogan “Unedited. Unfiltered. News.”
So iReport was Fake News long before CNN became Fake News King.
What kind of MI6 spy is that?
Noteworthy that the story Steele says he lifted was dated July 28, 2009. Not only was 2009 former president Barack Obama’s first year in office—but Donald Trump was not even in the picture yet.
“When asked whether the former British spy understood how the website actually worked, he confessed that “I do not have any particular knowledge of that” and noted he didn’t understand at the time that the site has “no connection to any CNN reporters.” (Fox News)
“Do you understand that CNN iReports are or were nothing more than any random individuals’ assertions on the Internet?” an examiner asked Steele.
“He replied: “No, I obviously presume that if it is on a CNN site that it may has [sic] some kind of CNN status. Albeit that it may be an independent person posting on the site.”
What kind of MI6 spy is that?
According to the archive copy of the iReports site, the website specifically notes that none of the users who submit content can be described as working for CNN. (Fox News)
“Being an iReport.com user and creating and uploading content to iReport.com does not mean that you work for CNN, and you should never represent yourself as working for CNN,” the site’s FAQ section read.
“The dossier authored by Steele alleged that Gubarev’s companies “used botnets and porn traffic to transmit viruses, plant bugs, steal data and conduct ‘alerting operations’ against the Democratic Party leadership” and that Gubarev himself played a “significant” part in the operation while “under duress” from the Russian security agency FSB.
“Steele and his company, Orbis Business Intelligence, were hired by Glenn Simpson’s U.S. based company, Fusion GPS, to work on the dossier and promote its contents to journalists. Fusion GPS received $1.8 million via the law firm Perkins Coie, with the money paid by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.”
From the iReport’s web archive:
iReport invites you to take part in the news with CNN. Your voice, together with other iReporters, can help shape what CNN covers and how.
At CNN we believe that looking at the news from different angles gives us a deeper understanding of what’s going on. We also know that the world is an amazing place filled with interesting people doing fascinating things that don’t always make the news.
That’s why iReport is full of tools built to share stories that are happening where you are and discuss the issues that are important to you. Everything you see on iReport starts with someone in the CNN audience. The stories here are not edited fact-checked or screened before they post. CNN’s producers will check out some of the most compelling, important and urgent iReports and, once they’re cleared for CNN, make them a part of CNN’s news coverage. (Look for the red “CNN iReport” stamp to see which stories have been vetted for CNN.)
Together, CNN and iReport can paint a more complete picture of the news. We’d love for you to join us. Jump on in, tell your story and see how it connects with someone on the other side of the world. Here are some resources to get started:
