Former British spy says Trump dossier content needed to be verified

by Itunuoluwa Adebo

Former British spy behind the dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia insists his research was urgent enough to share with top American and British officials, but admits some of his work wasn’t verified, according to court documents filed last month in London.

According to CNN, the new legal filing obtained by lawyers for former British spy Christopher Steele argue that his investigation into a possible corroboration between the Trump campaign and Russia, funded by political opponents of Trump, served a vital national security interest, and that Steele felt obligated to get his work to senior national security officials.
Steele also agrees that some of the information he passed to o the US and UK governments still “needed to be analyzed and further investigated/verified.” This acknowledgement referred specifically to one memo he wrote, and not his entire dossier.
The defamation case against Steele is in the High Court in London, which is about the same thing as a trial court in the US. The court filing, seeks to defend Steele’s involvement in a case against him that claims he failed to do “even the most basic attempt at verification.”
