The Steele Dossier Empty
PostSubject: The Steele Dossier   The Steele Dossier EmptyFri Dec 28, 2018 4:59 am

The Steele Dossier, long the ridicule of the far right and the symbol of some nefarious plot to bring down Trump at any cost, was actually funded by a website promoting Ted Cruz in 2015.  It was purchased and completed by the DNC and Clinton campaign after Cruz was out of the picture.

Although many of the allegations in it are salacious, they're difficult to prove.  The one claim everybody remembers -- that Trump paid Russian prostitutes to pee on the bed Obama slept in, in the Moscow Ritz-Carlton -- was witnessed only by Trump & the prostitutes and unless the Kremlin maintains a videotape of it (as claimed) it'll never be proven. Steele's source could be somebody who cannot come forward.

However, another bombshell allegation was that Cohen traveled to Prague in August of 2016 to meet with Russian government officials on behalf of Trump.  Cohen has vehemently denied ever being to the Czech Republic, even as recently as yesterday.

The reason he had to deny it yesterday is that evidence has emerged that his cellphone was in Prague in August 2016, and a separate eyewitness report says he met with Russian government officials.  If this turns out to be true -- and if Cohen 'fessed up to it behind closed doors with Mueller -- it puts the collusion charge on rock solid ground.  He could be denying it in public to avoid tipping off Trump & his allies as to how deeply they are in the shit right now.

Of course the rest of the dossier's many allegations have mostly been proven 100% true, by public reporting.  It wouldn't surprise me a bit if the whole thing turns out to be accurate.

The only caveat, as I've mentioned before, is that the Russian government would find it impossible to blackmail Trump with the tape.

The man is incapable of shame.

The Steele dossier, two years later
Quote :
many of the allegations that form the bulk of the intelligence memos have held up over time, or have proven to be at least partially true.
