A lawsuit involving dossier author Christopher Steele has revealed a possible connection an Obama and Biden insider and the deep-link to the Obama State Department.
According to The Daily Caller:
Former British spy Christopher Steele told a British court that he shared his infamous dossier in 2016 with an associate expecting that it would be provided to State Department officials, including Antony Blinken, who is considered a top contender for secretary of state in a Joe Biden administration.
According to a judge’s decision handed down last week in a dossier-related lawsuit, Steele told the court that he provided a copy of the dossier in early November 2016 to Strobe Talbott, a former deputy secretary of state who then served as the president of the Brookings Institution.
Blinken served at the time as deputy secretary of state, the number two position at Foggy Bottom. Before that, he served as deputy national security adviser to President Obama and as national security adviser to then-Vice President Biden.
But Blinken’s possible link to the dossier highlights the State Department’s deep connections to Steele and his salacious report. Steele’s work has come under scrutiny as the special counsel’s investigation and the Justice Department’s inspector general have all but debunked the dossier’s core allegation of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.
It is unclear if Blinken met with Talbott and discussed the Dossier but the connections to the Obama State Department run deep.
