Report: British Govt Warned U.S. About Christopher Steele’s Credibility in 2017
The British government warned U.S. officials about anti-Trump dossier author Christopher Steele’s credibility before the 2017 presidential inauguration, according to John Solomon of The Hill.
Solomon reports that “multiple” witnesses told Congress that in January of 2017, Britain’s top national security official sent a private communique to the incoming Trump administration explaining his nation’s role in the Trump-Russia collusion probe.
In the memo–hand delivered to incoming national security adviser Michael Flynn’s team–Sir Mark Lyall Grant claimed the British government lacked confidence in the credibility of Steele’s evidence of Russian collusion.
Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Solomon, “A whistleblower recently revealed the existence of a communique from our allies in Great Britain during the early days of the Russia collusion investigation.”
“Based on my conversations with that individual, and the credible timelines that are supported by other events, I made a referral to Attorney General William Barr and Inspector General Michael Horowitz for further investigation,” he continued. “There now is overwhelming evidence to suggest that on multiple occasions the FBI was warned that Christopher Steele and the dossier had severe credibility issues.”
