Dossier Author Steele Cut Off all Contact with FBI once they Appeared to be Protecting Trump
British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the Trump-Russia 'dossier', tried to warn the FBI of possible crimes in progress by the Trump campaign. But he cut off contact once it became obvious they were protecting Trump.

This story comes from the transcript of Fusion GPS CEO Glenn Simpson’s congressional testimony, made public today by Sen. Dianne Feinstein:

Most folks following the scandal knew already that much of the FBI New York office, what with their close ties to Rudy Giuliani, was in the tank for Trump.

But now we know that Steele and Simpson (CEO of Fusion GPS) alerted the FBI about likely Russian blackmail of Trump (and yes, their concern was the pee-pee tape) as far back as JULY of 2016. So for three months, until the dubious New York Times article came out about a week before the election, which said the FBI found no Trump connection to Russia, Steele and Simpson were trying to sound the alarm to U.S. Law Enforcement, and they got crickets.

The FBI has a lot of explaining to do.
