Fox News’ contributor Sara A. Carter has now reported that Secretary of State John Kerry’s role in the Steele dossier is now being investigated. This is a huge deal.
According to Sarah Carter, “The House Select Committee on Intelligence is now investigating former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s possible role into the unverified dossier paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton Campaign.”
Jonathan Winer who worked with Kerry for a long time as the former envoy for Libya did an opinion piece in the Washington Post on Feb. 8th. He defended his connection to Steele and Steele’s role in the Trump-Russia Dossier.
Then take a look at this. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) revealed to Laura Ingraham on Fox News that John Kerry has been briefed on a “second dossier.” Take a look.

Obama’s State Department has been previously reported to be under investigation, says Byron York of the Washington Examiner.
York says that Obama’s State Department saw Christopher Steele as a valuable source of intelligence and would pass his information around the Department.
For more than a month, the committee has been in its second phase of investigations focused on former Obama State Department officials and their role in either transmitting information or using information provided by a former British spy and investigator Christopher Steele.
Steele was hired by embattled research firm Fusion GPS, also under several congressional and Senate investigations.
But it was in February when questions surfaced regarding Kerry’s possible involvement or knowledge of the dossier.
Also in September, 2016 Steele briefed Winer on the dossier at a Washington Hotel, according to an expose recently published in The New Yorker.
Winer prepared his summary and shared it with former Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland and Jon Finer, who was then chief of staff Kerry. Kerry was then briefed by Finer several days later, according to the report.
If this is true, it needs to get out immediately. Do you think that John Kerry should be called up in front of a special counsel?
