It's kind of amusing to think of the GOP leaders who commissioned the first dossier being so weak willed that they only speak ill of their new deity in whispers and book deals.
>The Telegraph, citing unnamed sources, reported that **Steele produced for the FBI a second dossier on Trump during his presidency, which lasted from January 2017 to January 2021.**
>The Telegraph wrote that the second document "contains raw intelligence that makes further claims of Russian meddling in the US election and also references claims regarding the existence of further sex tapes."
>The newspaper also said the second dossier relied on different sources from the first one.
>**It also said the existence of a second dossier suggested the FBI was confident in the material in his first dossier.**
This is the FBI that was under Trump, still investigating Trump. And the FBI under Trump was confident in Steele's research. Now I am curious what Steele's 2nd dossier said about Trump.
I still want to see the WHOLE transcript to the Ukraine "perfect" phone call - not the 4 page summary of the 30 minute conversation.
Why hasn't the Biden administration released the recording yet? I am sure they have gone through to see what actually happened.
Too bad it wont have an effect on his domestic terrorist supporters.
This basically. They're hell-bent on ruining the country.
>Insider was unable to reach the FBI for comment and has contacted Trump's office for comment.
If Trump publicly states no second dossier exists, he probably is lying because nearly everything that has come out of his mouth over the past 50 years, more or less, is a lie. He is a pathological liar who cannot control his impulse to lie. His deep and dark impulses (and Vladimir Putin) control him.
Oh, it’s better than that.
The more energy you see him spend on denouncing one of his “enemies” for doing something specific that is bad, you can 100% count on it coming out later, from a credible source, that he himself was doing the exact thing he was lying about the other person doing.
He has been putting the “P” in the GOP now (in more ways than one), for at least half a decade now!
Wonder if Melania has placed a call to Melinda Gates yet to inquire what law firm is handling her divorce?
can't afford them anyway. the trumps are negative billionaires on paper
We can go on and on about dossiers, sex tapes, unnamed sources etc., but for me the evidence of *my own eyes* was Putin and Trump emerging from that hour long private meeting (with no translator's notes revealed) at the summit in Helsinki. Trump looked absolutely beaten and Putin could barely suppress his glee. Putin absolutely has something on Trump. It's pretty damn obvious.
He looked like a beaten dog. It was pathetic.
Delicious!!! When will this one be leaked?
So I'm back to thinking that he not only had sex with Russian prostitutes, but that they peed on his face.
Do you know the difference between a garbanzo bean and a chick pea? Trump has never paid to have a garbanzo bean in his mouth.
The best way to embarrass Trump would be proving he's not nearly as rich as he claims .
NYT did that years ago.
My theory (considering Epstein's homes and private jet was wired for video and audio):
He had his famous fallout with Epstein after he was blackmailed by Russia with sex tapes featuring him raping that 13 year old girl who accused him of rape in court (and had a corroborating witness who was also a child).
That's just my inner conspiracy theorist talking. The dates soft checks out though.
Isn't the point of having blackmail stuff like that is for someone to send the materials to the NYT or WAPO [in the case of your death](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_man%27s_switch#Blackmail)?
Trump was such a horrible, prurient lecherous old man. It’s just weird all these Bible thumping “Christians“ think he’s their Lord and Savior. It says a lot about rabid Trump supporters who claim to be Christian who claim Trump is their guy. It shows they’re completely disingenuous not to mention brainwashed.
> It’s just weird all these Bible thumping “Christians“ think he’s their Lord and Savior.
he said mean things about brown and black people. thats all they ever really wanted
"Giuliani vehemently responded that the accusation of a '*sex* tape' remains unsubstantiated, as Trump's penis is insufficiently large to comprise a pixel on the camera's CCD."
A lot of the first dossier was accurate or left unverified as far as I am aware.
Would be very interested to see this 2nd dossier.
Unfortunately no one will care about this one seeing as Faux 'News' has spent years screaming about how the first was proven false (it wasn't)...
His conduct with Russia over his presidency and all his associates who have links to Russia and been arrested because of it leads me to believe there are tapes of some sort.
*Trump and Republicans have repeatedly denounced the first dossier as false and "fake news"*
So this basically confirms it to be true
>Steele's first dossier is also unverified and many of its claims have not been corroborated.
True, though we should also note that some of the claims _have_ been corroborated or shown to fit more closely with the facts than Trump's statements.
That quote is a little backwards. It should be more like many claims have been substantiated, while many others have been partially supported or corroborated - while a few have no other supporting information…yet.
Well, I expect the news to slowly come out that every piece of it is true and then for absolutely nothing to happen about it.
I can hear the howling
It’s time to leak the second dossier
This isn't exactly on point, but am I the only one who thinks "Christopher Steele" sounds like the name of a rather compelling TV spy? To be honest, it sounds more suave than James Bond to me.
I watched the Rise and Fall of Trump shuttle, the link is on this news article...and it’s true..... He’s like King Midas except everything he touches turns to SHIT... like the Republican Party...
whatever, release the full unredacted Mueller report so we don't have barrs interpretation of it in public.
remember major democratic leaders used the Russian collusion thing, so they either lied to citizens and were a part of dividing america or they were telling the Truth. release the fucking report.
If it's about the "Russian collusion thing". All the proof is neatly packaged in a 990 page bi-partisan report. The extent of ties and criminality from the Trump campaign is quite clear there. Always bring up the report when people say "but there's no proof".

This should be the lead story in the media for weeks
For me, the higher priority should be day in and day out coverage of each politician that enabled Jan 6th and where we are on arresting, charging and imprisoning these traitors.
Trump is a close second.
