Many of the same news outlets that provided comprehensive coverage of Christopher Steele’s opposition research dossier during special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation have yet to cover newly declassified information that indicates the much-publicized Steele Dossier contained Russian disinformation.

In response to requests from Senators Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) and Ron Johnson (R., Wisc.), the Department of Justice on April 10 declassified four footnotes included in Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation. As of Thursday — six days after the footnotes became public — The New York Times and CBS News are the only mainstream outlets to cover the development. A host of other news outlets that closely followed the “Russiagate” story — and reported constantly on information related to Steele’s findings — have thus far ignored the new information.

One of the newly declassified footnotes, footnote 350, states that the FBI received reports in 2017 “indicating the potential for Russian disinformation influencing Steele’s election reporting.”

“It’s ironic that the Russian collusion narrative was fatally flawed because of Russian disinformation,” Grassley and Johnson said in a statement following the release. “These footnotes confirm that there was a direct Russian disinformation campaign in 2016, and there were ties between Russian intelligence and a presidential campaign – the Clinton campaign, not Trump’s.”

A further release on Wednesday detailed how Russian Intelligence knew of Steele’s efforts as early as July 2016, and that a “sub-subsource” for Steele’s primary contact was associated with “an individual in the Russian Presidential Administration in June/July 2016” and voiced “strong support for Candidate Clinton in the 2016 U.S. elections.”

Buzzfeed — which published the entire dossier composed by former British spy Christopher Steele in January 2017 — CNN, The Washington PostPolitico, and other outlets still have yet to cover the developments, despite widely circulating Steele’s claims following the release of his dossier, which played a “central and essential” role in obtaining FISA warrants against the 2016 Trump campaign.

In February 2017, CNN cited anonymous officials who had corroborated some of Steele’s claims for the first time, giving them “greater confidence” about the dossier’s credibility, and whose television anchors have insisted multiple times that “much of the dossier has been corroborated.”

In 2018, The Washington Post published an intricate timeline of Steele’s 17 reports to the FBI, which were compiled into the dossier and reinforced the U.S. intelligence claim that “the Russians engaged in an elaborate operation to swing the election to Trump.” The report, like others published in major newspapers and digital news outlets, made no mention of any potential Russian disinformation.

Politico reported on a 2017 London trip made by two Republican House Intelligence Committee staffers, who were reportedly trying to “track down” Steele, and suggested that the trip “underscores the importance of the 35-page dossier Christopher Steele wrote last year to congressional probes into possible collusion between Moscow and the 2016 Trump campaign.” Politico also reported on Horowitz’s 2019 interview with Steele as part of the Crossfire Hurricane probe, and cited sources who said the IG found Steele’s testimony “credible and even surprising.”

Author's note at the end o each post: -"Your biggest problems are so small for such a big God"-Ella Cruz" The Bible is the blueprint of Faith and the New Testament has given us God’s kind of faith and the authority to perform miracles through faith and through the name of Jesus. No matter what level of cancer we are; we can be healed by our faith and the word of God because Jesus did not care in what stage of death were the three people whom he raised from the dead. "The first time he invaded the realm of death was the daughter of Jairus, an official in Jerusalem. She was “just” dead. The second time the son of a widow in Nain was “one day” dead, and the third time Lazarus, brother of Mary and Martha in Bethany was “very” dead after three days, and he raised them “all.” It doesn’t matter how big is our problem, how long we have buried our problem and how hopeless we are because Jesus is the resurrection and the light."-Ella Cruz World's events are happening so fast. Putting Global Governance 2015, Agenda 2030, Agenda 2050, Antartica, Mars, CERN, G5, The United Nations, The European Union, the Club of Rome and the false prophets of the Vatican all together, we see that the satanic global government of these elites is imminent and it shall come to pass. The mark of the beast will be obligatory. You are either a Christian and believe this because this is what was predicted 2000 years ago through the Bible, or you are not a Christian but you read all these articles and connect the dots and notice that the satanic world government is their agenda and with President Trump we had 7-8 years that two of it have already passed and this was God's mercy on us. Their Global Governance 2025 matches the end of POTUS's second term. Their Green New Deal's 12 years matches the agenda 2030. The immigration and devouring America and Europe all go according to the blueprint of one world satanic government. We have a short time to prepare ourselves. But why we, born again Christians are happy and calm? Why we; who know that our day of prosecution, chasing Christians and forcing the mark of the beast will come, but we joyfully dedicate ourselves to the nation? What is the difference between us; evangelist Christians and normal Christians? 1- We believe Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God. 2- We believe the Bible is the word of God. 3-We believe God had so much loved us that he gave his only begotten son to die on the cross and through his blood, all our sins are washed away and forgiven. 4- We believe the price of our salvation, health, prosperity, happiness, and eternal life is paid by the blood of Jesus and we have all these gifts in us when we are born again. By his stripes, we are healed 2000 years ago. 5-We believe by accepting Jesus Christ as our savior, we open our hearts to the Holy Spirit and are baptized by him who will dwell in us and will reveal himself through dreams, visions, or may use speeches, videos, books to communicate with us. 6- We believe Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and we have the same DNA as Jesus Christ with the same miraculous abilities through faith. Just as the Apostles did the same signs and wonders as our Lord Jesus, through "faith," he; the Lord will accomplish the same miracles through us after we accept him as our savior. 7-We condemn the religion and all the fake prophets of the Vatican who deceived Christians for centuries and hid the true message of the Bible and the Good News from people to keep themselves in power. We welcome all denominations. 8- We believe that a born again Christian doesn't die and the moment his life on earth is ended, he is promoted to heaven immediately. There is no death for us, we just change the dimension and the other dimension is filled with immerse, joy, love, peace and glory of God. All people who had a personal visit, vision, dream or prophecy with Jesus or people who died for a short time, left their body and came back, know how does this experience feel. It is a divine relief and joy. Therefore, to answer the above question, we can happily die right now. In fact we would love to die yesterday but each one of us has a mission and purpose of life which the Holy Spirit has revealed to us after our born again experience and because of that mission, although we know our day of prosecution will come, but we are joyful and relaxed in the spirit because by preaching the Gospel and bringing people to Jesus we save them. To be born again, you just need to say: Lord Jesus, I accept you as my personal savior, Come to my heart, Forgive my sins, Wash me away, Make me a new person, And live inside of me. In the Name of Jesus from Nazareth, Amen. And that's it. You are saved. He will reveal himself to you and your life will dramatically change. Your marriage, your health (especially addiction), your finances and all areas of your life will experience this extraordinary change. And never look back. In Jesus name. Amen.
