But why did the Clinton campaign ever set out to create such a document?
The Steele dossier has been described as opposition research and it was certainly circulated among reporters in order to spread the Russia conspiracy theory in the media, but “its contents were circulated more in the Obama era FBI and the DOJ, and its media rounds seemed more geared to creating stories that would justify a FISA warrant than to any serious effort to sway the electorate with its attacks.”
The dossier was never convincing opposition research because its central claim, that Trump was a Russian agent, was too farfetched and detached from election issues to ever connect with voters. It required the complicity of the FBI and the DOJ, and Mueller’s sanction, to give it any credibility.
The dossier’s real role was legal, not political. It wasn’t meant for the tabloids, but to create a pretext for an investigation of Trump and his associates. And so it’s easy to see its usefulness to the Dems today.
But why create a pretext for a secret investigation of Trump before the election was even done?
The FISA warrants had always raised the possibility that the investigation was used to collect information on a rival campaign. And, because of the slow pace of declassification and the lack of a thorough release of information about exactly what was done and who was responsible, that remains a real possibility. But a recent statement by Christopher Steele raises an even more disturbing possibility. In response to a lawsuit, Steele admitted
”Questions: Why, in the name of the Constitution, didn’t Rosenstein charge Mueller with investigating the “Steele Dossier?” Why isn’t “someone or anyone” in jail by now?!!!!!
Answer: Because Obama completely corrupted the (In)Justice Department
