Obama Aide Put Dossier Author in Touch With FBI

Yahoo News reporter Michael Isikoff and Mother Jones magazine’s David Corn are out with a new book on the Trump/Russia saga titled “Russian Roulette.”

Isikoff and Corn are two journalists who personally met with former MI6 spy Christopher Steele while he was trying to sell his debunked Trump dossier to interested parties. Steele leaked information to both of them, as was evident in articles the duo published prior to the public even knowing about Steele’s dossier. As we learned from the Nunes memo, one article that Isikoff published cited information from Steele, and was used by the FBI when they applied for a FISA warrant to spy on Trump associate Carter Page. The FBI used Isikoff’s article as additional corroboration of Steele’s dossier. The FBI likely didn’t realize that in relying on Isikoff to corroborate Steele’s work, they were citing Steele to prove what Steele said was true.

Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson said during Senate testimony that Steele disassociated from the FBI because he was angry that Comey re-opened the Bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton over her private email server close to Election Day. We later learned that wasn’t true -that the FBI had ceased working with Steele because he committed a cardinal sin – leaking to the media.
