I don't know who Mike Steel is but Fusion GPS hired ex British intelligence officer Christopher Steele after Hillary's campaign laundered payment through a law firm for so-called opposition research. Of course our watchdog media defenders of democracy will never ask why Hillary's campaign elected to hide payments in this way.

It is bad enough that Hillary's campaign hired a foreign intelligence agent to meddle in the US election but the fact that he used to run the Russia desk makes it much worse. There is no blaming Steele for doing what he was hired to do, gather disinformation from his Russian intelligence contacts into a dossier. The Clinton's have a long history of political assassination by subterfuge, see birthed controversy.

Now we find the Obama DOJ as well as the FBI and Mueller's team of partisan jihadists had
Connections with Fusion GPS. Like Hillary's campaign aided by an incurious media they are trying to hide their relationship. What are they hiding except that the dossier was used to get warrants to spy on the Trump transition team.
You just made thatup. . That is what conspiracy nuts do, take a few fact and just make up ways to weave them together.

If Trump started a state run media, Pirro would be the first to volunteer[/QUOTE]


If it were not for Fox, and AM radio, we WOULD have a state run media.

Remember when Obama told his peeps DO NOT watch Fox or listen to the radio?

opposition research is done by all major campaigns and some minor ones

you have it wrong so far. foreign and domestic intelligence has proved russia meddled in our elections.

From 1990 to 1992, Steele worked under diplomatic cover as an MI6 agent in Moscow.

he sent in field reports which are now called a dossier. Russia is who compiled a dossier on Trump. I got the two mixed up myself at first, so don't feel bad about that one.

no doubt but they didn't drop any bombs about the election. Secret intelligence around the globe did.

if you look probably quite a few republican politicians hire them during campaigns.

I doubt they are trying to hide anything but maybe a confidential relationship. and if its pertinent that wont stand.

Donald J Trump set the ball in motion with that. Flynn was already on the intelligence peoples radar. obama even warned trump about him. trump didn't heed that advice and when he had to fire him after asking comey to go light he fired comey then admitted it was for "the Russia thing"
Trump did this to himself.

Wife of demoted DOJ official worked for firm behind anti-Trump dossier

My question is "Did Mueller know this?"...
We pretty much know when Mueller knew this and why it doesn't really matter. Although Bruce G. Ohr was an associate deputy attorney general and therefore oversaw much of the FBI investigation into the Trump-Russia connections, he was not a part of Mueller's team of investigators and was not vetted by Mueller nor did his position at DOJ have any direct influence on the Mueller investigation.

Arguably Mueller learned about Ohr's contacts and connection (through his wife) with Fusion GPS the same time that the rest of us learned about it. There would have been no reason for the DOJ to notify Mueller prior to it's decision to remove Ohr from his associate deputy attorney general responsibilities.

I've not read the actual reason from the DOJ on why Ohr was removed from his associate deputy attorney general role but assume it was for failure to reveal a potential conflict of interest. A potential conflict of interest does not indicate that the potential conflict of interest had any bearing on his actual actions in this DOJ role. It does violate the ethics rules for the DOJ but does not indicate any actual wrongdoing or influence in an investigation.

The problem here is the "rights" attempt to slander Robert Mueller and his team of investigators over Ohr's connections through his wife with Fusion GPS and his undisclosed meetings with members of Fusion GPS. Robert Mueller's integrity in law enforcement is beyond dispute and he's gone to special lengths to ensure that no stain of "partisanship" in his investigation exists. When it was found that Peter Strzok had sent anti-Trump texts to a colleague while playing a decisive role in last year’s investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s private server Robert Mueller removed Strzok from his investigation team. There was no reason to believe that Strzok's anti-Trump position has any influence on his role in investigating Clinton's emails but Mueller wanted to ensure that an "anti-Trump" bias could not be falsely alleged against his investigative team.

The Right's attempt, lead by Senator Nune's that's been established as an active shill for the Trump White House, to discredit Mueller is farcical at best. Robert Mueller's integrity is so well established that it can't be tarnished by false allegations coming from Republicans that only months ago were stating that Mueller's integrity in law enforcement is beyond any dispute.

Not even the false claims against Christopher Steele's dossier on Donald Trump have merit. The importance of Steele's dossier to the FBI was predicated upon the fact that Steele is a recognized expert on the Russians and has submitted over 100 reports to the US State Department all of which have been considered to be very accurate and worth taking seriously. Steele did not produce an "anti-Trump" dossier on Donald Trump and the Russians. Steele produced an investigative report on Trump's connections with the Russians that had damning evidence against Trump in it because of Trump's connections with the Russians. There was never any political bias by Christopher Steele because Christopher Steele, as the former British MI6 head of the Russia Desk, couldn't care less about US politics.

The "Right" is trying everything possible to change the subject from the facts to false allegations and conspiracy theories because of the facts.

The FACTS are scaring Republicans and Trump supporters and they're trying to do anything possible to distract from the FACTS.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Is this one of those Jedi mind tricks? I think I will be the judge of what Mueller is.
