CoA Institute Sues for Records on Potential FBI Payment to Democratic Opposition Researcher Who Compiled Infamous Trump Dossier

Via Billy

Cause of Action Institute (“CoA Institute”) has filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia seeking records relating to the relationship between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) and Christopher Steele, a former British spy who made headlines after he was identified as the lead author of the largely-discredited Trump dossier. 
According to a news report, Mr. Steele entered an agreement with the FBI a few weeks before the November 2016 election to investigate then-candidate Donald Trump while, at the same time, he was employed by an opposition research firm to collect information for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. 

CoA Institute President and CEO John Vecchione: “If a former spy who was being paid to do opposition research on a U.S. presidential nominee was also on the FBI’s payroll, there are serious concerns about the agency’s independence. We need to better understand this financial relationship to ensure the FBI was not misusing taxpayer money to interfere in a presidential election on behalf of one of the candidates.”


  1. So, let me see if I am following this. Probably, Obama, ordered the FBI to investigate Republican Presidential Candidates. The FBI as lapdog, found a foreign agent to write a "fictional" piece of research to discredit the target. But more important, to show potential influence by foreign governments (Now I am going one step further, I would bet there are identical hit pieces for all the major republican candidates, someplace. Possibly, written by the same author. My guess is there is/was similar dossiers for all the major republican candidates. Perhaps, at the FBI itself.)

    Serious questions need to be asked. Was this investigation was done for the specific purpose of getting a FISA warrant? Why was the investigation even began? Who ordered the investigation? And dozens more.

    If there is such a trail. The corruption is on an unimaginable scale. Scandals of this magnitude topple governments. If this happened, we have no government.

      That's a start. :)
