Christopher Steele was the producer of the Trump "dossier"
Christopher Steele, a former British MI6 agent, the dossier’s author was hired by Fusion GPS to "dig up dirt on Trump for an unnamed U.S. client." With Steele, the feds believed the unbelievable in part because of Steele’s pedigree as a former MI6 agent.
Steele was tasked with writing reports about Russian firm Alfa Bank. Fusion, in turn, paid Steele $168,000.
"The fact that FBI headquarters received on the same date both sets of information involving the same political campaign (Clinton campaign), the same law firm [Perkins Coie] and the same investigative firm [Fusion GPS] makes Steele’s involvement in these matters relevant," Durham wrote.
