A former U.S. attorney and a Harvard Law student teamed up to revisit the Steele dossier by cross-referencing it with special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings — and unveiled which parts of it hold water.
Former federal prosecutor Chuck Rosenberg and Harvard Law student Sarah Grant wrote for Lawfare that many of the findings made public as part of Mueller’s probe confirm ‘both specifically and thematically’ aspects of the dossier.
‘The dossier holds up well over time’ the scholars wrote ‘and none of it to our knowledge has been disproven’.
In an interview Saturday morning with MSNBC’s David Gura – Rosenberg noted that during his sentencing Donald Trump’s former ‘fixer’ Michael Cohen essentially ‘acknowledged and admitted to’ the business ties between the Trump Organization and Russia that were first alleged in the dossier.
In this dossier former British spy Christopher Steele claimed that between March and September 2016 some Russian entities ‘had been using botnets and porn traffic to transmit viruses – plant bugs – steal data and conduct ‘altering operations’ against the Democratic Party leadership’.
