The dossier is a private intelligence report comprising 17 memos that were written from June to December 2016 by Christopher Steele, a former head of the Russia Desk for British intelligence (MI6).
The dossier contains allegations of misconduct and conspiracy between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and the Government of Russia during the 2016 United States presidential election. Campaign members and Russian operatives allegedly colluded to interfere in the election and benefit Trump.
On 14 May 2019, Ludwig De Braeckeleer reported:
US Attorney General William Barr has assigned John Henry Durham, the US attorney in Connecticut, to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine whether the collection of intelligence on the Trump campaign was lawful. Durham is best known for leading an inquiry into allegations that FBI agents and Boston police had ties with the mob and his appointment as special prosecutor regarding the 2005 CIA interrogation tapes destruction and, in November 2011, Durham was included on The New Republic’s list of Washington’s most powerful, least famous people.
- During the summer of 2016, Robert Hannigan, then head of GCHQ, flew to Washington to brief John Brennan personally.
- CIA Director John Brennan briefed Senate Minority leader Harry Reid in August 2016 on the Steele dossier.
- This briefing led Reid to send FBI Director James Comey a letter demanding an investigation of the collusion between Donald Trump and the Russians.
- The Steele dossier was also a key foundation for the FISA warrant issued to spy on American citizen, Carter Page.
De Braeckeleer concludes:
- "I only wish that John Durham could investigate the links between the Steele dossier and the Skripal Affair… But this will not happen."
