Devin Nunes: Trump Needs to Ask Theresa May About the UK’s Handling of Steele Dossier
Guest post by Joe Hoft
Sunday’s piece in the British Telegraph newspaper revealing the Brits only knew of Christopher Steele’s junk Trump-Russia dossier after the 2016 election is a lie.
The Gateway Pundit has put together evidence that the Brits knew earlier than they are letting on.
The article released in the Daily Telegraph states that the Brits only found out about their former spy Christopher Steele’s bogus dossier after the 2016 election. Their efforts were to ward off embarrassing news that might be released with the Carter Page FISA application. The problem is they lie in their report.
The heads of MI5, MI6 + one of Theresa May’s most trusted security advisers all knew of the Russian-Trump conspiracy bogus claims before Trump.
The Daily Telegraph piece states that the Brits only found out about Steele’s sham dossier after the 2016 election and this is when they raised this with the British spy network:
The man Steele approached was Sir Charles Farr.
He was head of the Joint Intelligence Committee – the body that assess intelligence. He had also been a top counter-terrorism adviser in May’s Home Office.
Plus Steele had known Farr for 20 years. He would know what to do. pic.twitter.com/EsfvxVjgq9

However this is a lie!
Riley-Smith claims Steele and MI6 met a week after the election, November 2016, and that the reason why they met was because Trump won….
According to the notes uncovered and released a week or so ago produced by former US State Department Deputy Assistance Secretary Kathleen Kavalec, the Brits were in on it all along – certainly before the 2016 election.
But look who Steele met with (pay particular attention to the area in red)…..
Kavalec’s notes indicate that the Brits were in on it the entire time. Per her notes with Steele taken a few weeks before the 2016 election, Steele indicates that the Brits were in on it before the election –
The Brits (London) were in on it before the 2016 election. Their attempted effort to cover this up is a lie.
Trump knew the UK was in on it!
In April President Donald Trump tweeted out a stunning report by former CIA analyst Larry Johnson on OANN. Johnson accused the United Kingdom of helping the Obama administration spy on the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.
Trump tweeted this out:
“Former CIA analyst Larry Johnson accuses United Kingdom Intelligence of helping Obama Administration Spy on the 2016 Trump Presidential Campaign.” @OANN WOW! It is now just a question of time before the truth comes out, and when it does, it will be a beauty!

We knew this and reported on it The Gateway Pundit reported on it a year ago. There was solid evidence that proves a foreign government meddled in the 2016 US Election. But that government was the UK, not Russia!
Hat tip D. Manny
Rep. Devin Nunes on Wednesday asked President Trump to press Prime Minister Theresa May about the UK government’s handling of the Steele dossier.
The Daily Caller reported:
The trigger for Nunes’s letter was a report published in the British press Sunday that Christopher Steele, a former MI6 officer, briefed high-level British government officials about his investigation into possible ties between Trump and the Russian government.
The U.K. Telegraph reported that a week after Trump’s election win, Steele briefed Sir Charles Farr, who then chaired Britain’s Joint Intelligence Committee, about his investigation of Trump’s possible ties to Russia.
Farr passed the information to other high-level British intelligence officials, including MI5 director Andrew Parker and MI6 director Alex Younger. According to the Telegraph, the prime minister was not briefed on the information.
