Christopher Steele Made Damning Pre-FISA Confession; FBI Retroactively Classified

Former British spy Christopher Steele made a stunning admission during an October 11, 2016 meeting with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec, just 10 days before the FBI used his now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page and the campaign's ties to Russia, according to The Hill's John Solomon.

According a typed summary of the meeting - which sat buried for over 2 1/2 years until an open-records litigation by Citizens United - Steele said that his client "is keen to see this information come to light prior to November 8," the date of the 2016 US election. Also attending the meeting was an employee of Steele's Orbis Security firm, Tatyana Duran.

And according to The Hill, Kavalec's notes of the meeting - including this stunning admission - do not appear to have been provided to the House Intelligence Committee for its Russia probe, according to former Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA).

Dems want the totally unredacted Mueller report only to see what's in the redactions (Grand Jury information comprising less than 1% of the report) to see whose head is on the way to the chopping block and how to protect or sacrifice them, whichever is best for the Party.

Remember, they were invited by Barr to view the entire report except the Grand Jury redactions (mandated by law - seeing them would be illegal) before his appearance before Congress, but nobody in the Dem Party took him up on it. This piece of strategy led directly to their manufactured claim that the Mueller report contained evidence of an unspecified something and therefore should be seen by the entire Congress and was worthy of lawsuits and investigations and trying to skewer a few more high level Conservatives.

If self-generated chaos is how the Dems expect to conquer, let's see how it plays out.
