The Steele Dossier – What is it?
In January, BuzzFeed News published an intelligence dossier developed by a former British MI6 intelligence officer who was deemed credible by U.S. intelligence officials. The dossier raises profoundly disturbing questions about whether there was improper contact between the Trump campaign and the Russian government and about the existence of compromising personal and financial information about Donald Trump. At the time BuzzFeed published the dossier, it acknowledged that the allegations it contained were “unverified” and that the document contained “some clear errors.”
BuzzFeed’s decision to publish the dossier has itself attracted a lot of attention. The dossier is part of ongoing lawsuits filed by parties named in the dossier and may be part of congressional investigations.
Since publishing the dossier, reports indicate that the dossier is “gaining credibility among law enforcement,” with U.S. investigators having “corroborated some of the communications” detailed in the document. The potential danger of the allegations the dossier contains, if true, demands a thorough and independent investigation—an investigation that Republicans in Congress have so far refused to carry out.
