U.S. Attorney General William Barr confirmed a probe into the infamous Christopher Steele dossier.
Barr revealed that attorney John Durham is currently investigating the possible source of the infamous “anti-Trump” dossier.
The question is this: did Russian operatives feed Steele false information?
And this is only one part of a much larger investigation, also spearheaded by Durham:
He is also reportedly looking at the intelligence-gathering activities of other U.S. agencies in relation to Russia and the campaign.
Why It’s Important:
The Attorney General has expressed concern that the Steele dossier contained “Russian disinformation.”
Now, special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation essentially debunked the Russia collusion theory, as no evidence was found of a link between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
However, that isn’t enough for Barr.
During an interview on May 8, he said he thinks Mueller “ignored” evidence that Russian operatives might’ve misled Steele.
Steele, a former MI6 officer who looked into the Trump campaign back in 2016, could’ve been a willing (or unwilling) cog in the wheel.
But either way, Barr and Durham want to get to the bottom of the situation.
Lastly, it’s important to note that AG Barr firmly believes Russia “definitely” meddled in the 2016 election.
- Attorney General William Barr has announced another Russian probe angle
