Report: Christopher Steele Will Not Cooperate With US Attorney’s Investigation https://t.co/UzErZhYx7R

Christopher Steele, the author of the anti-Trump dossier, will not cooperate with an investigation led by a prosecutor handpicked by Attorney General William Barr to review the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, Reuters reports.
Barr appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to oversee the inquiry. President Donald Trump last Thursday also granted Barr the authority to declassify documents related to the government’s investigation and surveillance of the Trump campaign.
The FBI relied heavily on Steele’s dossier to obtain surveillance warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Barr has said that he is concerned about the FBI’s use of Steele’s document, which had several of its core allegations debunked by the special counsel’s report.
Steele alleged in his dossier that the Trump campaign took part in a “well orchestrated conspiracy” with Kremlin operatives to influence the 2016 election. But special counsel Robert Mueller was unable to establish such a conspiracy, he said in a report last month. More
Steele has lied so many times he could not possibly avoid perjuring himself. Of course, he doesn’t want to testify to a US attorney who has prosecutorial power. He’ll talk to the IG who can’t prosecute.
Foreign agent interfering in US elections. Indicted yet?

He should be indicted as a foreign national trying to interfere with our elections. Isn’t that what the Russians were indicted for?
This man is the one in contempt. This man is the one who needs to be behind bars. Why are the media not at his door? This man is the dirty trickster working for Hillary and Obama that set this whole country on a trail of tears. #NoColusion…. https://t.co/DXIfUi2cQR

Lock him up! Oh, and while you’re at it lock up the ones he was working for; ie, Obama and Clinton.
