The FBI is reportedly reviewing a second dossier alleging collusion between President Donald Trump and the Kremlin.
The Guardian reported Monday that the second dossier was created by former publisher and domestic activist Cody Shearer, and despite being noticed skeptically by media organizations he shared it with before to the election, the business is still questioning its veracity.
The memo was given to the FBI in 2016 by former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the controversial”golden showers” dossier. The ex-M16 agent gave it to the business when they asked him to “provide any papers or justification that could be useful in its investigation,” mixed sources reliable to The Guardian.
Steele reportedly told the business he couldn’t attest for the credit of Shearer’s memo, “but that he was providing a duplicate since it corresponded with what he had alone listened from his own eccentric sources.” Shearer cited an unnamed source within the FSB, Russia’s state confidence service.
The authors of both papers claimed Trump was “compromised” during a 2013 outing to Moscow “that concerned licentious acts in a five-star hotel.”
