Declassified FBI Spreadsheet Shows How Investigators Tried To Verify The Steele Dossier | The Daily Caller

A newly declassified FBI document shows what steps the bureau took to try to verify the infamous Steele dossier.
The document, a 94-page spreadsheet, shows that investigators relied heavily on open source information, including from news articles, as evidence to support some of the allegations in the dossier, which former British spy Christopher Steele compiled on behalf of the DNC and Clinton campaign.
The spreadsheet, which was first published by CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge, also cites information from other government agencies regarding some of Steele's claims.

The source, Igor Danchenko, told the FBI in January 2017 that he provided Steele with rumors and gossip that he picked up from six sub-sources, most of whom were Russian. Danchenko, a Russia analyst who lives in Washington, D.C., told the FBI that he did not verify the information he gave to Steele, who operates an intelligence firm in London.

The spreadsheet also cites unverified allegations from a memo compiled by Cody Shearer, a longtime associate of the Clintons. Shearer also claimed that Russian intelligence services had a Trump sex tape.

The spreadsheet repeatedly cites an article published on Sept. 23, 2016 regarding Carter Page's alleged meeting in July 2016 with two Kremlin insiders. Steele and the author of that article, Michael Isikoff, have since acknowledged that Steele was the primary source for that story. The FBI did not disclose that Steele was Isikoff's source in either the spreadsheet or the surveillance applications against Carter Page.
