An investigative report by the Daily Caller has uncovered evidence that the FBI offered to pay Trump dossier author Christopher Steele to gather intelligence on Lt. General Michael Flynn in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election.

The report has gone virtually unnoticed by the mainstream media. It’s likely to receive renewed attention by some outlets now that government documents prove that Steele spread rumors during the winter of 2016-17 that Flynn had an affair with a Russian woman.

The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross reports:

It is not clear how and when Steele came across the rumor, or if it was the result of the FBI asking him to look into Flynn.

The inspector general’s report, released on Dec. 9, 2019, said that FBI agents offered to pay Steele “significantly” to collect intelligence from three separate “buckets” that the bureau was pursuing as part of Crossfire Hurricane, its counterintelligence probe of four Trump campaign associates.

One bucket was “Additional intelligence/reporting on specific, named individuals (such as [Carter Page] or [Flynn]) involved in facilitating the Trump campaign-Russian relationship,” the IG report stated.

FBI agents also sought contact with “any individuals or sub sources” who Steele could provide to “serve as cooperating witnesses to assist in identifying persons involved in the Trump campaign-Russian relationship.”

By that time, the opposition research firm Fusion GPS had contracted Steele to compile the infamous Russia dossier on Donald Trump and his associates, including Carter Page, Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen.

Proof that the FBI is corrupt?
Comey — Just about everything he did, include his letting the muslims flee the country immediately after 9/11.
McCabe — lies about FisA warrants.
Strozk — his insurance policy to keep Trump from being POTUS.
Rosenstein — He appointed Mueller who never found ANY crimes but tried to frame many of Trump’s associates.
Yates —- who refused to obey her boss’s instructions
And then the ULTIMATE. Most of the head of FBI offices around the country jumping up and down and screaming their heads off when Comey, the CRUD got fired.

The FBI has always been involved in shady and nefarious issues going back to its genesis. The FBI must be decomissioned. The CIA has to go also! The ‘Kingmakers’ behind the throne should be all gathered up at the front gates of Langley! Americans have been used up, spit out and internationally embarrased by the escapades of Spooks!
