FBI's Steele story falls apart: False intel and media contacts were flagged before FISA

"The FBI’s sworn story to a federal court about its asset, Christopher Steele, is fraying faster than a $5 souvenir T-shirt bought at a tourist trap.
Newly unearthed memos show a high-ranking government official who met with Steele in October 2016 determined some of the Donald Trump dirt that Steele was simultaneously digging up for the FBI and for Hillary Clinton’s campaign was inaccurate, and likely leaked to the media."
"The concerns were flagged in a typed memo and in handwritten notes taken by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec on Oct. 11, 2016.
Her observations were recorded exactly 10 days before the FBI used Steele and his infamous dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s contacts with Russia in search of a now debunked collusion theory.
It is important to note that the FBI swore on Oct. 21, 2016, to the FISA judges that Steele’s “reporting has been corroborated and used in criminal proceedings” and the FBI has determined him to be “reliable” and was “unaware of any derogatory information pertaining” to their informant, who simultaneously worked for Fusion GPS, the firm paid by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Clinton campaign to find Russian dirt on Trump."

    Have you guys looked (I know it's a difficult thing to do) at Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Watters, and Hillary Clinton lately? Their faces are melting! I am 82 years old, as of April 7, and a young 69 year old tried to 'pick me up' at the Grocery Store today! Fun! I didn't tell him my age, he didn't ask! I laughed a lot though!

    CIA, NSA, DIA, State Department Intel, Air Force Intel, Army Intel, Navy Intel DHS, FBI Counter Intel , 2 or 3 "Black" intel agencie
    That's all I can come up with at this point in time. I's sure there are more done in the weeds hiding from view.

    Sweet song!

    As long as we are at it, I see the initial "finding" by the Dems that there was collusion and confirmed by 17 intelligence agencies. is cropping up again.

    I have never heard who these 17 agencies are? If I am to identify agencies that focus on intelligence I can come up only with 3.

    What are these dorks talking about? None of the anchors in any of the networks asked when they were interviewing the scum who claimed it asked for clarification.

    Anyone has an inclination who these 17 are?
