Four years after he compiled the dossier that bears his name, former British intelligence official Christopher Steele’s reputation keeps on taking a battering.
It was just a few weeks ago that newly declassified footnotes revealed that one of the report’s key sources was a Hillary Clinton partisan and that the FBI knew the dossier very likely contained Russian disinformation.
That wasn’t a good look.
Another piece of information that’s not a good look — though not exactly new — has received renewed attention after the Department of Justice filed a motion to dismiss the charges against former Trump administration National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
As the Daily Caller News Foundation reminded everyone in a Wednesday piece, last year’s Justice Department inspector general’s report included an oft-overlooked item which involved the FBI offering to “significantly” remunerate to Steele if he were to investigate Flynn and his dealings with Russia.
