Bombshell: Trump Dossier May Have Been Written by Russian Agent
Though the media assumed from day one that former MI6 spy Christopher Steele penned the now-infamous Trump dossier, which we know Fusion GPS hired Steele to produce on behalf of the Democrat National Committee and 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, this assumption may very well be false.
Writing for American Thinker this week, conservative filmmaker Joel Gilbert and documentary producer Jack Cashill pointed out that the contents of the actual dossier seem quite poorly written.
Especially given that the guy who allegedly wrote it, Steele, “attended Cambridge University,” “wrote for the student publication, Varsity,” and “also served as president of the Cambridge Union Society, a debating club.”
In fact, some of the sentences in the dossier were so poorly written that Gilbert and Cashill wonder whether Steele was really even its true author.
“Much of the Steele dossier reads like … a syntactical nightmare with a near random use of punctuation,” they noted.
Take this odd sentence, for instance: “So far TRUMP has declined various sweetener real estate business deals offered him in Russia in order to further the Kremlin’s cultivation of him.”
Someone who was actually proficiently versed in English would have included the words “that were” between “business deals” and “offered him,” and the word “to” between “offered” and “him.”
But that’s just one example. Gilbert and Cashill found many more:
“(T)he phrase ‘to encourage splits and divisions in western alliance’ is missing a ‘the’ before ‘western alliance.’ The phrase ‘anchored upon countries’ interest’ should read, in context, ‘anchored upon the country’s interest.’ More than once, the author misuses the possessive, as he does here.”
It’s like a zoo monkey wrote this dossier. But how could that be given Steele’s impressive education?
“It is possible that the document had more than one author, one perhaps Russian, one most likely Steele,” Gilbert and Cashill theorized.
“What is most disturbing is that no one in the media appears to have reviewed the language of the dossier,” they continued. “Whether the primary author is Steele or a Russian associate, the dossier is a mess, both in its content and in its style.”
But Gilbert and Cashill noticed something else about the dossier as well: The fact that it reads more “like Democrat talking points” than an intelligence dossier.
“One content point that reasserts itself repeatedly toward the end of the document is the notion of ‘Moscow’s interference in the US Presidential election campaign,'” they noted. “Another is Trump’s perceived ‘unfitness’ for office.”
Again, nothing about this mysterious dossier makes much sense, except for the fact that most of its claims have been either disproved or still remain unsubstantiated.
What’s also clear is that the investigation into alleged Russian collusion could very well hinge “on the authorship of this dossier,” as noted by Gilbert and Cashill.
“The media have an obligation to ask who else was involved in its creation,” they concluded in their piece for American Thinker. “If Christopher Steele wrote it himself, Cambridge should rescind his degree.”
If instead a Russian agent wrote this dossier that Clinton paid Fusion GPS to prepare, the implications could be grave.
