  • Christopher Steele ordered to pay damages over 'inaccurate' dossier claims

    Well, Well, Well, look who has been caught lying through his teeth!

    British ex-spy Christopher Steele must pay damages to two Alfa Bank partners for publishing "inaccurate or misleading" material in his infamous dossier, including claims the banks funneled "illicit cash" to Russian President Vladimir Putin, a British court ruled Wednesday.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Actual detailed story, and a pertinent points.

    However in four out of five of the specific points of contention, he said that Orbis had recorded the information from its source accurately and taken reasonable steps to check it.

    On the other point - related to an allegation about illicit payments to President Putin via a middle-man in the 1990s - the judge ruled that Mr Steele's company had "failed to take reasonable steps to verify the allegation".

    and

    The judge noted that Mr Steele, who appeared in person to give evidence during a hearing in March, had been unable to reveal the identity of his sources to help support his case.

    This is thought to be because of source-protection issues related to reporting on Russia.
    Leaked in 2017, the report made allegations of links between President Trump and Russian collusion in his election campaign.

      Don't worry for Mr. Steele. Other parties will cover his fines.
