FBI Wanted Dossier On Trump, They Even Made A Deal With An Ex-Spy For It

A former British intelligence operative was hired by Donald Trump's opponents during the election to compile a dossier on the candidate showing his ties to Russia. After turning in some of the paperwork, the spy pulled out of the deal and fled his home with his children.

Christopher Steele is believed to be the ex-spy hired to compile the Dossier on President Donald Trump that was released in January. Initially, it was a 'never Trumper' Republican who hired an agency to investigate Trump a year earlier, but that person pulled out when Mr. Trump was given the Republican nomination in May of 2016. Democrats took over and kept the investigation going, and eventually contacted Steele's private intelligence company, Orbis Business Intelligence.

Allegedly, Steele delivered the dossier, a 35-page document which contained alarming and outrageous claims about Mr. Trump's business dealings and private entertainment activities in Russia. According to the documents, Russian intelligence spent five years grooming Trump for the presidency and had collected a great deal of damaging information about him so that they could blackmail him when he took office.

Reports of the document released in January when Trump was the president-elect. Amid hacking and leaks going on in the White House, the FBI took interest in the pages.

While President Trump has gotten a lot of flak for the reports, there has been no evidence to confirm them. Donald Trump and Russian intelligence both called the contents of the dossier a complete fabrication.

Steele's colleagues argue that he had a reputation in the intelligence community as being honest. He wasn't the kind of man who would pass on false information or gossip. He did pull out, however, before he could complete the job.

Unfortunately, now, there's no way to contact Steele and get to the bottom of the issue. He's vanished. Steele and his children disappeared from his home and haven't been seen since. His whereabouts are currently unknown.
