THE CLINTON FUNDED STEELE DOSSIER WASN’T USED IN THE MEDIA BEFORE THE ELECTION says @gabeschoenfeld

Except:
—The Weekly Standard
—New Yorker
—Yahoo News
—Mother Jones
—Slate
—NBC
—MSNBC

And by the Clinton campaign:
—Press release “bombshells”
—Tweets read by millions

THREAD
Here’s @BulwarkOnline’s @gabeschoenfeld making the claim that “the sensational material in the (Steele) dossier only came to public attention” in Jan 2017 when it was published in full by BuzzFeed: thebulwark.com/sophistry-in-t…

It “defies logic and common sense” to think otherwise 🤔
OK, read and decide for yourself (1/2):

The Weekly Standard (July 24): newyorker.com/news/news-desk…

New Yorker (Aug 3): newyorker.com/news/news-desk…

(Both of these subtly use Steele/Fusion GPS reporting)

Yahoo (Sep 23): news.yahoo.com/u-s-intel-offi…

(The source of this is Steele himself)
Read and decide for yourself (2/2):

Mother Jones (Oct 31): motherjones.com/politics/2016/…

(DIRECTLY QUOTES THE DOSSIER VERBATIM)

Slate (Oct 31): slate.com/articles/news_…

NBC (Oct 31): nbcnews.com/news/us-news/f…

(Indirectly references Steele’s allegations about Page and Manafort)
Here’s are the Yahoo and Slate stories being hyped by MSNBC and Rachel Maddow, plus even more allegations (Nov 1): msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-…
Here is a Clinton campaign press release about the Yahoo News story, calling it a “bombshell” showing “chilling” ties between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin (Sep 23): presidency.ucsb.edu/documents/hill…

Apparently voters deserved “the facts BEFORE Election Day” @gabeschoenfeld?
Here’s a Clinton campaign tweet about the Slate story, alleging secret communications between Trump Tower and Alfa, a Russian Bank (Oct 31):

Clinton had this Tweet and custom graphic ready to go within an hour of the Slate article being published 🤔
And when the @nytimes tried to spin this same line about Steele’s info not being reported pre-election even they were forced to issue a correction*

*which itself failed to account for all the stories here. The correction needed a correction, that’s how bad the NYT is on Russia
And why wasn’t the *entire dossier* leaked in full BEFORE the election?

—The dossier allegations are so laughable with so many basic errors it would have undermined it. Specifics can be debunked, so innuendo/rumor was BETTER for Team Clinton

—Nobody expected Trump to win anyway
FACT: *Millions of voters* were told BEFORE the Nov 2016 election:

—Trump was “compromized” by Putin

—His senior advisors were secretly meeting sanctioned Kremlin officials

—Trump Tower was secretly communicating with a Russian Bank

—FBI/CIA/NSA was looking into Trump’s team
Just because those media leaks from the Clinton/Steele/Fusion operation didn’t work and @realDonaldTrump was elected POTUS anyway, doesn’t mean they didn’t happen
Dear @gabeschoenfeld

Please stop gaslighting.

You should issue a correction, because you’re wrong, and in your own words, defying logic and common sense.

Thanks

Q: Why didn’t the Steele dossier appear prominently in places like the NYT to hurt DJT?

A: They couldn’t verify it!

“We heard about the back-channel (between) the Russians and Trump...we found no evidence it was true”
@nytimes Exec Editor Dean Baquet

mobile.nytimes.com/2017/01/20/pub…
Steele (escorted by Glenn Simpson) personally met with the @nytimes & @washingtonpost in Aug/Sep 16 to shop the dossier for Clinton

Both outlets assigned reporters to look into it & the only reason they didn’t print it? THEY COULDNT PROVE IT

And still can’t, @gabeschoenfeld
