New Evidence Suggests Coordinated Effort Between Clinton Camp, State Dept on Dossier

February 5, 2018 (EIRNS)-This morning Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) a subcommittee chairman, released an eight-page memorandum, which they had provided to authorities back on January 4, backing up their call for criminal action against "ex" MI6 spy Christopher Steele, for illegal anti-Trump activity during the 2016 Presidential election period, and implicating the State Department and the Clinton campaign.

President Donald Trump and Republicans whine when anyone in government, such as in the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice, show what they claim is favoritism towards people they don't like, particularly Hillary Clinton (even though the Federal Bureau of Investigation did much to inadvertently help defeat Clinton in the 2016 presidential election).

Intelligence Committee Republicans behind the memo insist that its findings have no bearing on the Mueller investigation, which they say should continue unimpeded.

It nonetheless provides new details about the FBI's application to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court order against former Trump official Carter.

However, the Grassley-Graham memo still remains heavily redacted. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), the two Senators say there is evidence that Steele was fed possibly partisan information by someone at the State Department during 2016.

It is widely reported that the key figures referred to in this chain of anti-Trump collusion with the British operative, are: Jonathan Winer at the State Department; and Cory Shearer, an associate of the Clintons.

According to the referral, Steele wrote the additional memo based on anti-Trump information that originated with a foreign source.

Because of the blacked out portions of the GOP memo, it wasn't clear what the information was that was given to Steele, or allegedly how it might have been used for political purposes against Mr. Trump.

With the redactions, it's hard to make out exactly what Grassley is accusing Steele of.

"Seeking transparency and cooperation should not be this challenging".

The memo explained that their referral was based on Steele's statements in British court about the distribution of his research conflicting with things he told the Justice Department.

He also posted a statement this morning, headlined, "FBI Required Redactions of Unclassified Material; Grassley Seeks Full Declassification Review". "The government shouldn't be blotting information out that it admits isn" secret, and it should not take dramatic steps by Congress and the White House to get answers that the American people are demanding.

"There are still many questions that can only be answered by complete transparency".

"Talk about rigging the game and putting together a document that will serve your purposes as an opposition research document", Jordan said.
