Trump ‘fake news’ dossier’s creator, British spook Chris Steele, fears for his life

Christopher Steele, 52, the former British MI6 spy who authored the 35-page dirty dossier on Donald Trump, has gone underground and is attempting to hide behind UK privacy rules.

Despite it being “classified” and its information totally unverified, CNN reported the dossier as a legitimate U.S. intelligence document, and Buzzfeed saw fit to publish it online.

See “CNN Fake News: U.S. intelligence memo says Russia has ‘compromising’ information on Trump

One of the most ridiculous claims in the dossier is a lurid account that on a trip to Russia, Trump had hired hookers to urinate (“golden showers”) on a bed in the Moscow Ritz Carlton on which Obama supposedly had slept, and that Russia has a tape of the “golden showers”. The story has all the marks of something a pimply-faced teenager living in his mommy’s basement would conjure, as if Trump would be so juvenile and stupid as to do that, well knowing that Russian intelligence has the hotel and its rooms wired.

Actually, we have good reason to think a pimply-faced teenager did concoct the “golden showers” incident.

According to ZeroHedge, a poster on the scuzzy 4chan chat forum had invented the “golden showers” incident as a hoax. Jim Stone says he saw the 4chan “golden showers” post last November 1. (There’s no record of the post because 4chan scrubs its chatter after a day.)

The 4chan hoaxer then sent the “golden showers” story to Rick Wilson — the GOP consultant who, during the GOP primaries, had called for assassinating Trump. Wilson then sent the story to the CIA, who included the completely unverified account in their official classified (therefore, secret) intelligence report on Russia’s hacking and interference the 2016 election.

On January 11, 2017, the day after the CNN article on the dossier, in his first press conference as President-elect, Trump denounced the CNN report as “fake news” and Buzzfeed a “failing pile of garbage”. The Kremlin, too, calls the dossier a “complete fabrication” and denies having “compromising” information on Trump.

In a phone call to Trump and in an official statement, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said the intelligence community “has not made any judgment that the information in this document is reliable, and we did not rely upon it in any way for our conclusions.” Clapper calls the 35-page dossier “a private security company document” that “is not a U.S. Intelligence Community product”.

The “private security company” is Orbis Business Intelligence Ltd. in London, which is owned by Chris Steels and Christopher Burrows, also a former MI6 agent, who claims not to have been involved in the dossier.

Reportedly, Steele, who is described as a “confirmed socialist” as a student at Cambridge, was paid by two groups to put together the dirty dossier on Trump — first, Trump’s GOP primary opponents; then after Trump became the GOP nominee, Hillary Clinton’s campaign and supporters.

Carl Bernstein, who co-wrote the CNN report, said Chris Steele gave the dossier to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who is bitterly anti-Trump. McCain then handed it to the FBI. (New York Post) Another account said McCain got the dossier from “a former British ambassador”. (Daily Mail)

That’s how the 35-page dossier ended up in U.S. intelligence files on Trump, even though, according to James Clapper, the intelligence agencies could not determine the reliability or truth of the dossier’s information, nor did the agencies “rely upon it in any way” for their conclusions. All of which should lead us to ask why the dossier is included in U.S. intelligence reports on Trump in the first place.

Ex-MI6 spook Chris Steele is reported to be in fear for his life after his name became public. Steele, who had spied for the UK in Moscow in the 1990s, fled his home in Surrey so quickly that lights were left and neighbors were hurriedly asked to look after his three cats. There are claims he is hiding out in an MI6 safe house amid fears of backlash from Moscow. Downing Street is refusing to be drawn on whether the government had offered assistance to Steele.

A representative for Steele and his family, as well as his business partner, ask that journalists stop trying to contact them, their employees and family members citing privacy and harassment regulations, which is most ironic because Steele had no such qualms in compiling his dossier of unverified trash on Trump.

Steele’s involvement in the Trump dossier now threatens to be a diplomatic problem for the UK government, caught in the crossfire between the U.S and Russia.

In a tweet, Russia’s London embassy suggests that Steele is still working for MI6 and “briefing both ways” against Trump and Moscow.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May — who is due to visit Washington in the coming weeks with Trump in the White House — is under pressure to reassure Trump the UK had nothing to do with the dossier. At the same time, according to the Telegraph, sources claim Steele had spoken to government officials in London before handing the report to the FBI.

There are also reports that when Steele was active as an MI6 agent, he had worked with Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko — the former KGB man who was murdered with the lethal poison polonium in London in 2006, on the orders of Moscow.

  6. Thank you for this excellent post! We need to tie this “millstone” to all the ‘bad actors’ and throw them over the side.
    John McCain should be pressured to resign. He shows extremely bad judgement coupled with his petulant desire for revenge against Trump for stating the obvious. Inexcusable at this point. Since he/they didn’t use it earlier, it indicates that they knew it was false and only brought it out to embarrass Trump, and the Republican Party at the Inauguration.
    “Yellow Journalism” at its worst (pun intended). This only indicates the viciousness and total dishonesty of the “Media”. 4chan being involved in this just adds another layer of ludicrous sleaze.
    And today’s “news”, says Obama and Biden are still “studying the document”. (What? It has proven false. Are they “researching” cartoon porn, and “Favorite Tranny pics” on 4 chan?

    This administration and the “Mainstream Media” are demonstrating their total contempt for Truth and the American people, right to the last.
    That is Obama’s real Legacy!
    And John McCain is the “Poster Boy” for why we need “Term Limits”, he is 80 years old and losing his mind.

      • Not only is he a loose cannon, but his treatment of women makes we wonder if he isn’t another closet gay who doesn’t like them, but they’re ‘useful’ for public life. Nothing about that creep surprises me, ever since his treasonous father agreed to go along w/LBJ’s cover-up for the attempted sinking of the USS Liberty to further his career. Like father, like son: two rotten apples from the same wormy tree!

    • His heroism is based on his surviving North Vietnam’s prison camps. He did refuse special treatment there. So he deserves credit for that.
      He was a lousy pilot and without his father’s and grandfather’s positions as famous Admirals, would have been pushed out. He has been arguably accused of being a “North Vietnam Ace” for his record of destroying Navy aircraft through “cowboying”, carelessness, and incompetence. Even his being shot down may have been a result of his ignoring accepted tactics. His peers say he was a ‘jackass’ from his days at the Naval Academy.
      I don’t know much about flying jet fighter-bombers other than using them for support in helicopter operations. I am only repeating comments I’ve read about him. Look it up if you are interested. It is mind-blowing.

        VN vets say something quite different — that he ratted out U.S. and fellow inmates to the North Vietnamese.

        • Some do, others strongly defend him. I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt, even if he doesn’t deserve much.
          Though getting shot down does not impress most Army helicopter pilots. If you spend a lot of time “banging around in the weeds”, shit happens. I got it twice. Didn’t bend it either time. Second time we got away from the fight before we had to land, the Crew Chief and I figured out the problem. Had a gun team for cover and sent another “slick” up high enough to radio back to base for parts and oil, and less than an hour were flying it back to base. No big deal. But that is hard to do with a jet fighter-bomber.

  8. What’s the purpose of ‘peeing’ on a bed AFTER somebody has slept in it. The libatrad, left leaning. progressive, NWO, OWG, commie, fascist, fake news, lamestream types are well on their way to having their heads explode because the worst presidential candidate in the history of America didn’t win. Too F****** bad. Get over it or move to another country and ” STOP RUINING MY DAY”. You can tell this if is a great country by looking at how many people want to sneak in and how many want to sneak out. And I’m with Mr. Trump on McCain. I like people that “Don’t get captured”.

    • This pic is even creepier — of John McCain wearing a kippah (or yarmulke), a cap worn by orthodox Jews, at the Western or “wailing wall” in Jerusalem. Why so many U.S. politicians do this escapes me, unless it’s a sign of their obeisance to Jews. Imagine non-Christian politicians wearing a crucifix when they visit the Vatican, which of course they would never do.

        Because it’s a photo opportunity to prove their obeisance to ‘the Jews,’ but not to ‘Jews’, as Israel Adam Shamir so brillianty wrote thirty years ago.

  12. More info on the P-file: http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/14/former-trump-adviser-tells-a-story-about-the-president-elect-and-prostitutes/
    The file was “created” by Fusion GPS as “Opposition Research” for a “wealthy GOP donor”. Trumps security was informed that prostitutes were going to be sent to Trump’s room and they stationed guards in the hall to prevent it.
    Not only is this a vicious political lie, but from the GOP, and a total reversal of the facts. Doesn’t say who added the “bed peeing” part, much less the “Golden Shower” on Trump. That may have been added later. Just Libs being Libs, I guess. Hear a lie, just gotta add to it, worse than “mean girls”.
    But then again, Libs are mostly “mean girls”.

    • It’s not funny to hurt any animal, but you do not mean this literally, rather as a way to point out that this fool knew what he was about, willingly did what he did, and is now whining that there are thorns in his bed of roses. Let me just say that he is what the old-time Mafia condemns as ‘unreliable’: he knows the penalty for failure, and is spinelessly worming his way out in any way possible.

  17. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this significant post. I say the actions of Steele and his cohorts are demonic in nature, because the documents are full of lies, not in keeping with any kind of common sense, and clearly stated in bad faith with the intentions of harming, hurting and destroying President-Elect Trump. Really, the contents are infantile, stupid and of no consequence. Idiotic!
