"Meanwhile, the combined investigative forces of the US media had spent months trying to prove a secret connection between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin and had come up with very little", writes Julian Borger of The Guardian, who met with Christopher Steele in November 2016.
It will turn out that The New York Times was not the only organisation with a dedicated team searching for these connections.

The Double Exposure Investigative Film Festival was hosted between October 6 - 8, 2016 in Washington, DC.

It was attended by a few interesting people.…
* Nadine Ajaka, The Atlantic, Video Curator

* Franklin Foer, New Republic (author of Slate's Alfa Bank article)
* Glenn Simpson, Fusion GPS, Partner

This REALLY doesn't make sense.

I'm reading through old tweets from the 2016 Presidential election and she was being called crazy throughout it all THEN.

The Russia bot story, published on October 20, 2016.

Heat Street was founded in April 2016, owned by News Corp under Dow Jones and Company, and was carefully watched over by Rupert Murdoch.

But as just established, she already supported Hillary Clinton in February 2016, who is literally The Establishment.…
Louise Mensch even got brought up as a #ResistanceHero, that's how much they held her up by because of the FISA story.

Never forget that she got her own opinion piece in The New York Times titled "What to Ask About Russian Hacking".…
