Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Writing to editor Radhika Jones in an email seen by ABC News, he said: "In these strange and troubling times, it is hard to speak unpalatable truths to power, but I believe we all still have a duty to do so. I salute those on your list, and otherwise, who have had the courage to speak out over the last year, often at great personal cost.

Included in the dossier are allegations that the president had cooperated with Russia for years, and that the Russians held compromising material on him that could subject him to blackmail.

The dossier contains unverified claims that the president, then a reality television star, engaged in a sexual encounter with prostitutes during a 2013 trip to Moscow.

I predict that Steele will be extradited to the US in 2019.

Steele still hates Donald Trump and the rest of us do too. More every day.

At least Donald can always Depends on the Marks in posts 1-3 that he has bamboozled into werking for rubles to obfuscate and deflect for him, no matter the subject.

It's almost like they are complete morons.

#1 Steele still hates traitors. Not surprising since he risked his life spying on Russians to prevent the very coup Putin achieved.

That's one way to look at it. The other is that if he had real dirt, he'd be dead already.

Now if you're the paranoid type, well, then Steele is a Russian tool being used as part of their disinformation campaign designed specifically to cause political division in the US.

#8 didn't a number of his Russian sources get killed after the dossier leaked? Seems like Putin thinks the dirt was real.
Neutralizing Steele will require discrediting him or killing him.
If I was Steele I would be hinting I was a DNC operative who faked the dossier to save my life.
Best to just accept that democracy is dead and the oligarchs run things for there benefit.

Speaking of complete morons, does anyone remember the last time that the Link Lizard had anything substantive to say?

Back on topic, since Steele was/is still held in high regard by MI and the CIA, I don't think that he is some type of double agent that deliberately planted misinformation in an effort to discredit Trump. That being said, his animosity towards Donnie Little Hands is pretty clear, and if that animosity was extant before he started paying his Russian sources for kompromat, then he could have easily been given "information" that fit nicely in his appointed task, which was getting as much dirt on Trump as he could.

We will never know, but it is statements like this that tend to lend credence to this kind of speculation.

- animosity towards Donnie Little Hands

A sure sign of clear thinking.

One Russian general had a heart attack sometime after the dossier became news. Other than that, it's one senator saying "people risked their lives to tell us this!".

There were 3 arrests of high level cyber types that haven't been seen since.

My guess is Putin killed them because they talked to Steele.
