The investigation into collusion with Russia is centered on the fake news Fusion GPS dossier.

How this document was put together is the key question in determining how it was used to smear Donald Trump.

And now one new bombshell may indicate that the truth is far worse than anyone thought.

The document was prepared by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele after the Clinton campaign and the Democrats contracted Fusion GPS to investigate Trump.

One of Steele’s investigators was the wife of a high ranking Justice Department official and the FBI used the dossier as the basis for investigating Trump.

But now another government agency could be dragged into the scandal.

A new book details how Steele was deeply connected to the Obama State Department.

His work on Russia and the Ukraine was passed high enough up the food chain to land on Secretary of State John Kerry’s desk.

That was because in 2010 he assisted in an investigation into corruption at FIFA – the soccer governing body that administers the World Cup.

Byron York writes in the Washington Examiner:

“In addition to having contacts in the Obama Justice Department and FBI, that former spy, Christopher Steele, was also well-connected with the Obama State Department.

book published in November by a correspondent at the Guardian, “Collusion: Secret meetings, dirty money, and how Russia helped Donald Trump win,” noted that Steele’s 2010 work on the World Cup soccer corruption investigation won him the trust not only of the FBI, but the State Department as well. From author Luke Harding:

The [soccer] episode burnished Steele’s reputation inside the U.S. intelligence community and the FBI. Here was a pro, a well-connected Brit, who understood Russian espionage and its subterranean tricks. Steele was regarded as credible. Between 2014 and 2016, Steele authored more than a hundred reports on Russia and Ukraine. These were written for a private client but shared widely within the State Department and sent up to Secretary of State John Kerry and to Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, who was in charge of the U.S. response to the Ukraine crisis. Many of Steele’s secret sources were the same sources who would supply information on Trump. One former State Department envoy during the Obama administration said he read dozens of Steele’s reports on Russia. The envoy said that on Russia, Steele was “as good as the CIA or anyone.” Steele’s professional reputation inside U.S. agencies would prove important the next time he discovered alarming material, and lit the fuse again.

That fuse, of course, was the Trump dossier.

It is hard for an outsider to discern clearly what is going on inside the dossier investigations on Capitol Hill. But it appears some investigators are looking beyond the 35 pages of reports done by Steele for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm working for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, that were published in January 2017 by Buzzfeed. They’re looking into whether Steele did other reports about Trump, perhaps similar but not identical to what was in the dossier published by Buzzfeed. And they are looking into whether those reports made their way to the State Department. They’re also seeking to learn what individual State Department officials did in relation to Steele, and whether there were any contacts between the State Department and the FBI or Justice Department concerning the anti-Trump material.

It’s not clear whether State Department activity related to Steele’s Russia project took place in the months leading up to the 2016 election, during the transition, or both.

Hillary Clinton was, of course, Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.”

Did Steele use contacts he developed while Clinton was Secretary of State to build the dossier and spread it around the government?

It’s clear the real collusion was between the Obama administration, high levels of the FBI and the Clinton campaign to smear Trump and destroy his Presidency.
