Washington and Lafayette


Boy, in your face England...

Trump is pissed at the UK for MI6's role in the phony dossier which was used by his political enemies formerly in the US intelligence community.

Don't look for the UK to get any state dinners or any other favors until they start to jail the UK intelligence people who were involved in the phony dossier.

You tell 'em Ivanka:

Yeah, that's the UK meddling in the results of the US election. According to Hilary, that's an act of war. The UK has a lot of answering to do.

They start to jail the perps and its even with Trump... no worries then imo...

till now I've seen nothing on this from the UK the one guy Steele seems to be walking around with impunity...

Trump is doing more deals with France instead...

Also, F Germany they have a big trade surplus and dont do jack for Defense spending ... Macron went out of his way to point out that trade is balanced between the US and France which goes over well with Trump...

I would say at this time the point man for Europe relations with the US is France's Macron...

The Steele dossier is excellent intelligence. There is zero evidence that it is a fabrication.

The Steele Dossier: An Assessment of Allegations

Matt Franko said...

Yeah but they didn’t know Page was already working as a UCI for a different compartment in the Bureau... he might have been sent to Russia as part of that work ?

They f-ed up big time...

Matt Franko said...

Also, Nunes out this week saying there was no intelligence to support the original “intelligence” investigation...

John Sipher’s Garbage Post Arguing the Steele Dossier Isn’t Garbage

September 6, 2017/18 Comments/in 2016 Presidential Election, emptywheel, Mueller Probe, Russian hacks /by emptywheel


I generally find former CIA officer John Sipher’s work rigorous and interesting, if not always persuasive. Which is why I find the shoddiness of this post — arguing, just as Republicans in Congress and litigious Russians start to uncover information about the Christopher Steele dossier, that the dossier is not garbage — so telling.

I don’t think the Steele dossier is garbage.

But neither do I think it supports the claim that it predicted a lot of information we’ve found since, something Sipher goes to great pains to argue. And there are far more problems with the dossier and its production than Sipher, who claims to be offering his wisdom about how to interpret raw intelligence, lets on. So the dossier isn’t garbage (though the story behind its production may well be). But Sipher’s post is. And given that it appears to be such a desperate — and frankly, unnecessary — attempt to reclaim the credibility of the dossier, it raises questions about why he feels the need.
