Government watchdog organization Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation released documents Wednesday which reveal that a senior State Department official and former Senate Majority Leader Steny Hoyer worked together on the Russia documents provided by the notorious “Steele dossier.” As Townhall reports:
“Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation today released 18 pages of documents revealing former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer coordinating with then-House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer’s (D-MD) national security advisor, Daniel Silverberg to work on Russia dossier materials provided by Christopher Steele,” Judicial Watch released.
The documents were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit after requests for communications about the dossier were ignored by State Department officials. They show direct conversations between Fusion GPS’ Glenn Simpson, Winer and Nuland about getting together for a meeting about a “Russia related issue.”
From Hoyer’s office, Daniel Silverberg praised Nuland’s work on the issue and called her a “warrior.”
“It was a delight to speak today, notwithstanding the context. You’ve been a warrior on these issues, and I look forward to speaking further to preserve and wherever possible strengthen the important work you have done. I’ll follow up regarding a possible working group meeting,” Silverberg wrote to Nuland on November 28, 2016.
This new information seems to show that the Obama-era State Department was weaponized against the Trump campaign.
The revelations come well after the salacious allegations in the Steel Dossier have been largely debunked. But they do show the level of coordinated treachery that was directed at the president by Democrat party members and their allies in the high government offices.
