Solomon Shows U.K. Court Ruling against Christopher Steele Adds New Fuel for Criminal Charges vs. FBI

July 14, 2020 (EIRNS)—Investigative reporter John Solomon has read through the ruling by Justice Mark Warby of the High Court of England and Wales against Christopher Steele last week. “And now from Britain, where the first and now-disproven allegations of Trump-Russia collusion surfaced in summer 2016, we have been given compelling evidence the FBI withheld information it knew was relevant,” he happily reports. The “new incontrovertible evidence ... goes to the issue of intent” in the FBI’s criminal deception of the FISA Court, and will bolster U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation, he notes.

Solomon details four areas of useful evidence revealed, in his July 10 article in Just the News website:

• That Steele told the FBI that the ultimate client for the dossier was Hillary Clinton, in his very first, July 5, 2016 meeting with the FBI on that dossier (Warby cited Steele’s own notes on the meeting in his ruling);

• More specifics on the FBI’s and Steele’s coordination with State Department officials Victoria Nuland, John Kerry and Tony Blinken;

• Steele’s admission that he was “heavily and enthusiastically” leaking to the news media, as Justice Warby wrote; and

• Steele’s admission to the Court that he did little to verify the raw allegations he passed onto the FBI in the memos which became the dossier—evidence that the FBI certified in their FISA warrant had been “verified.”

Solomon concludes:

“Such actions have already been deemed to be negligent by prior watchdog reviews. But now Durham has fresh evidence that goes to the issue of intent. The FBI had prior knowledge about these problems and didn’t come clean to the court as required by law and duty. If Durham is building a case that FBI officials conspired to defraud the FISA court and Congress, his team just got some new exhibits from across the Atlantic Ocean.”
