Not to be confused with the Dodgy dossier created by MI6's Operation Mass Appeal.

The Dirty dossier[1], also known as the Trump–Russia 'golden showers' dossier, the Steele dossier[2] or Trump dossier.[3]


The dossier is a private intelligence report comprising 17 memos that were written from June to December 2016[4] 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.


The dossier was published in full by BuzzFeed on January 10, 2017.[5] Several corporate media outlets criticised BuzzFeed's decision to release it.[6][7]

Durham Review

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.

The Mueller Report ignores the following facts on the role the Steele dossier played in the Russiagate hoax:

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."[8]
