Fox News is reporting Christopher Steele has appeared for a court-ordered deposition in London in civil lawsuit filed by Russian tech executive Aleksej Gubarev.
Steele's long-delayed, court-ordered deposition was for the ongoing multi-million dollar civil lawsuit on both sides of the Atlantic, filed by Russian tech guru Aleksej Gubarev against Buzzfeed and Steele.
Gubarev is suing because he claims his companies, Webzilla and XBT Holdings, were defamed by Steele after the unverified dossier was published by Buzzfeed on January 10th 2017. The dossier alleged that Gubarev's companies "used botnets and porn traffic to transmit viruses, plant bugs, steal data and conduct 'alerting operations' against the Democratic party leadership.”
Steele and his company, Orbis Business Intelligence, were hired by Glenn Simpson's U.S. based company, Fusion GPS, to work on the dossier and promote its contents to journalists. Fusion GPS received $1.8 million via the law firm Perkins Coie, which was paid by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Val Gurvits, the U.S. attorney representing Gubarev said they are "satisfied" with the testimony today:
Prior to the Monday morning deposition, Gurvits told Fox News in an email that "We expect Mr. Steele to confirm that he did not lift a finger to verify the false allegations against our clients and that he has absolutely no reason to believe any of these allegations to be true."
After the deposition was concluded, Gurvits told Fox News that " We are satisfied with the results of Mr. Steele's testimony."
Why is there no investigation into the Clinton\DNC\Russian collusion?
The Clinton campaign and the DNC funneled money though various companies to hire a foreign operative to get opposition research from Russia to effect change in the election and gave it to the FBI. The FBI took the unverified and false Steele dossier was given to a FISA after an FBI agent swore to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth to get a warrant to spy on Trump because they were concerned that Trump "funneled money though various companies to hire a foreign operative to get opposition research from Russia to effect change in the election".
Can you see the lunacy in this?
