The plot thickens. Reporter Sara Carter is reporting that Sen Chuck Grassley hinted that Cody Shearer who is a close associate of Sidney Blumenthal and former hatchet man for the Clintons specializing in dirty tricks used on Bill Clinton’s victims, was feeding Christopher Steele information. This is huge. The Shearer dossier has a lot of the same stories as the Hillary dossier has. It was presented to the FBI as corroborating evidence but I think it might be plagiarism instead.
Today the Senate put out a memo on Christopher Steele that was heavily redacted much to the chagrin of Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsay Graham. During the time that Grassley spoke about the memo, he hinted that someone from the Clinton camp was feeding information to Steele. That would make a lot of sense if the rumors are true Shearer’s dossier closely matched the Hillary dossier. Maybe that’s where Steele got his juiciest stories from. Shearer has no contacts in Russia but he does have Blumenthal, who is universally known for his political dirty tricks.
A new and highly redacted document released Monday by the Senate Judiciary Committee reveals that former British spy Christopher Steele, the man behind the unverified and controversial dossier, wrote an additional memo regarding alleged Russian collusion with President Donald Trump but that the information was largely based on information provided by allies of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
According to several U.S. Officials who spoke to this reporter, Cody Shearer, a former journalist and close ally of Hillary and Bill Clinton, was closely connected to Steele and shared information with the former spy. Shearer worked in the 90s for President Bill Clinton.
Steele, whose prior work with British intelligence gave him access to U.S. intelligence and State Department officials, also appeared to be in contact with Jonathan Winer, a current State Department official who also worked under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Winer is the “State Department’s Special Envoy for Libya and Senior Advisor for MEK resettlement,” according to the State Department website.
Another connection to the second dossier, according to several sources who spoke to this reporter, is close friend and advisor to Hillary Clinton, Sidney Blumenthal.

Carter previously reported on the current state of Blumenthal’s ties to the Clintons:
Blumenthal worked as a White House aide for Bill Clinton, and later worked with the Clinton Foundation after being denied a role by Obama Administration officials with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to reports. According to Politico he was being paid $10,000 a month by the Clinton Foundation.
It appears that could be part of the criminal referral Grassley and graham sent to the DOJ. That would blow the entire Trump collusion investigation right out the door and open up criminal proceedings against those who perpetrated or aided in that hoax.
I will be sorely disappointed if none of these crooks don’t see the inside of a jail cell.
