Second “Trump Dossier” Emerges One Day After FISA Memo Vote

A controversial Democratic operative considered a Clinton “hatchet man” wrote a second anti-Trump memo, which was presented to the FBI in October 2016 by former UK spy Christopher Steele, according to reporting by  theGuardian, one day after the House Intel Committee voted to release the confidential and “shocking” FISA memo to the public.

This “second dossier” was authored by Cody Shearer, a former journalist and political activist for the Clinton White House in the 1990s. According to the Guardian, it confirms Steele’s claim that Trump was “compromised” by the Russian intelligence in 2013, during a trip to Moscow that involved “lewd acts” at a five-star hotel.

Cody Shearer cites an unnamed source within Russia’s Security Service (FSB) for his claims, meaning that both anti-Trump dossiers tied to Hillary Clinton used Russian disinformation to discredit and undermine a candidate for U.S. President.

Citing a “source with knowledge of the inquiry,” the Guardian reported that the FBI was “still working on” the Shearer dossier, suggesting the bureau was taking at least some of it seriously. “It raises the possibility that parts of the Steele dossier, which has been derided by Trump’s supporters, may have been corroborated by Shearer’s research, or could still be,” wrote the Guardian’s Stephanie Kirchgaessner and Nick Hopkins.

Shearer’s name recently appeared in a January 25 letter from the Senate Judiciary Committee to six individuals or entities thought to be involved in the funding, creation or distribution of the original salacious and unverified “Trump-Russia Dossier.” Recipients of the letter – including John Podesta, Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman Schultz – are asked to submit all communications between a list of 40 individuals or entities, one of whom is Cody Shearer. 

And now we know why Grassley/Graham asked the DNC to turn over all communications they had with Cody Shearer and Sidney Blumenthal.

While Clinton fans were delighted by the emergence of the new memo…

BREAKING: The Guardian reports that the FBI has been given a 2nd dossier/memo by Cody Shearer, a journalist/activist, that independently set out many of the same allegations made in a Steele’s dossier, including allegations that Trump was compromised during a 2013 Moscow Trip.

… Conservatives were more skeptical of the latest unconfirmed “dossier” given Shearer’s past. His brother served as an ambassador during the Clinton administration, and his late sister was married to Strobe Talbott, the chief authority on Russia in President Bill Clinton’s State Department, according to ProPublica.

Furthermore, during the Benghazi investigation of Hillary Clinton in 2015, the National Review called Shearer “someone with a history of misleading foreign sources, misrepresenting himself as an agent of the US government, and creating trouble for both himself and the United States abroad.” NR cited the story about Shearer’s secret trip to Bosnia in the 1990s, where he extorted money from the Bosnian Serbs, claiming he was a secret envoy of the Clinton administration and could negotiate a reduction of war crimes charges.

Like the original dossier, the Guardian adds that Shearer shared his dossier “with select media organisations before the election,” without naming the outlets. The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross cites a passage from a recent book by the Guardian’s former correspondent in Moscow, Luke Harding, about how he received an email from the “Clinton camp” that contained the same accusations as in the Steele dossier, but was not Steele’s work.

There’s evidence that the Shearer memo was provided to the Clinton campaign. 

That at least suggests that Shearer’s document didn’t just appear out of thin air to conveniently back up Steele’s claims just as the original dossier is about to be challenged by a congressional memo. However, it also suggests that both dossiers claiming Trump’s ties to Russian intelligence came from sources either close to, or paid for by, Hillary Clinton.

Meanwhile, the FBI is still analyzing the “Shearer memo” and pursuing “intriguing leads,” according to The Guardian, which  could mean that the agency may be using Shearer’s research to corroborate parts of the original “Trump-Russia” Steele dossier. In other words, Christopher Steele provided the FBI with two dossiers, the second of which may have been designed to support the first. 

FBI was given a 2nd phony Trump dossier in Oct 2016 by Steele, this one written by Clinton hatchet man Cody Shearer. 2nd dossier was meant to “corroborate allegations” made in the first phony dossier created by Steele, funded by Clinton & DNC. Both dossiers cite FSB (Russian Inteligence) as source.. 

As we previously reported, Congressional investigators have been researching what appears to be a massive and coordinated conspiracy between the Clinton campaign, DNC, FBI, DOJ, Obama Administration and opposition research firm Fusion GPS to discredit Donald Trump with Russian disinformation. The scheme involved high level officials within the DOJ and FBI, including recently demoted Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe – whose “7th floor” Deep State cabal both exonerated Hillary Clinton while simultaneously “investigating” Trump. 

A brief refresher of facts and allegations: 

And now we can add Clinton crony Cody Shearer and his second Trump-Russia dossier to the list. 

Fact that both of these “dossiers” cite unnamed FSB sources for their allegations of “Trump collusion” & it doesn’t happen to raise any red flags is astonishing. Why weren’t both of these dossiers treated as text book examples of Kremlin disinformation? 

  • The DNC and Hillary Clinton’s PAC was revealed by The Washington Post  to have paid opposition research firm Fusion GPS for the creation of a dossier that would be harmful to then-candidate Donald Trump. 
  • Fusion commissioned former UK spy Christopher Steele to assemble the dossier – which is comprised of a series of memos relying largely on Russian government sources to make allegations against Donald Trump and his associates.
  • According to court filings, Fusion also worked with disgraced DOJ official Bruce Ohr, and hired his CIA-linked wife, Nellie Ohr, to assist in the smear campaign against Trump. Bruce Ohr was demoted from his senior DOJ position after it was revealed that he met with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson as well as Christopher Steele – then tried to cover it up. 
  • Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, denied under oath to the Senate Intelligence Committee that he knew about the dossier’s funding, while Clinton’s former spokesman, Brian Fallon, told CNN that Hillary likely had no idea who paid for it either. 
  • Current and past leaders of the DNC, including Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) also denied knowledge of the document’s funding.
  • Podesta met with Fusion co-founder Glenn Simpson the day after the Trump-Russia dossier was published by Buzzfeed News.

  1. Just like children caught in a LIE…The DEMOCOMMUNISTS have come out with “one better than you did”
    NA-NA-NA -NA -NA-NAAAAAAA. What a sick bunch of CRYBABIES that got caught with their fingers in the cookie jar. I guess they will NEVER get over their “queen” got her BUTT kicked.

  2. Not a fan of Hillary but not naive enough to believe that all politicians do opposition research. Hillary isn’t president. I am more concerned with Trumps ties with Russia and these ties exist apart of the Steel dossier or this new one. He has been laundering money from the Russian mob, he did turn to them to get financing after being turned down by US banks, he and his transition team did lie about ties, he did change the republican platform after contact with Russians, all of these things are true and have nothing to do with Hillary or Steele or Simpson or this new guy. He is now responsible for getting rid of two people looking into this Comey and McCabe. Let the Republican Mueller do his job.

    1. What is your source for this alleged information?
      There is an old lawyer saying, apparently followed by liberals, “If you can’t dazzle them with facts, bury them in bullshit.”
      It seems to me that you swallowed some while being buried.

    2. Where did you get your info so I can research it. I find this hard to believe with 17 of the top lawyers trying to find anything, even a crumb that might tie Trump to Russia. Why would this be the first time we are hearing about this?

  3. Hillary thought she had the election in the bag. She got lazy and only campaigned to look like she was involved, but she really had it in the bag because of her political machinations and senior FBI and DOJ officials’ assistance. In addition, Clinton’s skewing the Democratic Primary to get Bernie out of the race, taking over the DNC altogether, and paying $12M for the dossier to smear Trump almost insured her winning. However, she lost and she and her minions came up with the supposedly Trump-Russian collution to upset a duly-elected president. She is finally getting her “due.”

  4. It would seem that this is a really desperate attempt to try the same thing twice.
    Because 2 liars make the same lies, is it then the truth? LOL
    Please release the memo, so we can see how all of this collusion ties together.
    The American people deserve answers. We believe the REAL colluders should be
    brought to justice. They are the traitors who deserve to get punished to the fullest
    extent of the law. These are not just dirty tricks, but high treason against our POTUS!

  5. Ha! Ha! Ha! We need to form a dossier writing group and start creating multitudes of equally specious dossiers! They would all be equally probation of reality! Ha! Ha! Ha!

    1. We don’t even need to make things up. Just do a dossier of slick willy’s victims. How about a dossier on the butcher of Benghazi leaving Americans, one she called a friend, to die and the war on slick willy’s victims. And let’s not forget she thinks black males should be brought to heel. Our dossiers wouldn’t have to be lies to be solicitous they just have to be written about THEIR history. Her number one is married to a CONVICTED pedophile, she DIDN’T fire one of her icons for sexual harassment and she packed the deck against Bernie. One of her mentors started planned parenthood to eradicate blacks and another was the grand poobah for the kkk. Also writing about the kkk would inform people it WASN’T the Republicans that created the kkk it was the dumpsofcrap. Just write about the dumpofcraps history and you could be writing for YEARS.

  6. How are these dossiers different than the thousands of outright lies the Democrats & their toadies in the media & academia have been spewing for the past 50 years?
