If the Steele Dossier is going to get used by media to drive suspicion, then let's talk about how HUMINT tradecraft works.

That said, it's 2017, and we're discussing how "HUMINT" gets verified.

HUMINT is spook jargon for Human Intelligence - the information derived from people. "We know a guy. He said X."

This is in contrast to IMINT, Image Intelligence, or SIGINT, Signals Intelligence.

1. There are tens of thousands of folks who dedicate their lives to protecting the US, who go periodically go through faintly rigorous background checks and state of the art training, who take lower pay, who can’t talk about their work even to defend themselves.
2. There are many different types of information these intelligence professionals following very strict legal guidelines collect and analyze l, cross check, verify, and report. They work countless hours sometimes in isolation to provide the best assessments for the president.
3. Sometimes they get it wrong, sometimes they get compromised, but there are safeguards and various other mechanisms to help ensure these factors are accounted for in the final products presented to the president.

Trump plays checkers, while those around him play 3-D chess🔥

Investigative leads ARE being pursued. Good things ARE happening.👀

1. "Former" MI-6 officer - HEAD OF ITS RUSSIA DESK.

2. Hey, did Trump and his Russian spy pals break laws? We are so curious! 😍😎

Something I've learned and can't explicitly report on, in Trump Russia, but which I'm totally certain of now;
America is so powerful in matters of cyber anything and SIGINT anything that if @PutinRF understood it, he'd never have tried this.
It's not just America's overwhelming military might, and national prosperity. It is also their total dominance in all forms of communication
