Judge orders the release of Christopher Steele’s sealed deposition on the anti-Trump Dossier.
The depositions that were given by former British spy Christopher Steele and a longtime associate of John McCain must be unsealed, U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro said Thursday.
Who thinks the depositions might mysteriously fall into the shredder?

A federal judge in Florida on Thursday ordered the release of depositions given by former British spy Christopher Steele and a longtime associate of late Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain in a lawsuit filed against BuzzFeed regarding Steele’s anti-Trump dossier.
U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro overruled requests by Steele and David Kramer, the former McCain associate, to keep depositions they gave in the BuzzFeed lawsuit under seal. Ungaro dismissed a lawsuit filed against BuzzFeed on Dec. 19, 2018, by Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian businessman accused in the dossier of using his companies to hack into DNC computers.
The depositions by Steele and Kramer, a former Department of State official, are likely to shed light on how the dossier was compiled and disseminated to U.S. government officials and the press. Ungaro ordered the documents’ release for March 14.
Kramer, a former State Department official, provided the dossier to a BuzzFeed reporter Dec. 28, 2016, several weeks after meeting with Steele in London. More

The time is long past for DOJ to appoint a second Special Prosecutor to investigate the FISA warrant targeting Carter Page. Drain the swamp and declassify everything. Who cares about the FBI and DOJ reputations if they violated our constitution and federal law.
Having the leaders of this two-year long COUP attempt arrested, tried, found guilty and then imprisoned will go a very long way in stopping the Democrats!
Interesting. This might shed light on a number of issues, including the degree to which Steele’s misleading of the FBI was (or was not) coordinated with other entities.https://t.co/nRnHJSq62D
