A) Why are these hand written State Dept notes so important?

They were written by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec on Oct. 11, 2016. This date is significant as it's ten days before the FBI used the dossier to obtain a FISA warrant.
B) In their application to FISC, the FBI declared that Steele was a credible witness, saying the "FBI assesses Source H1 to be reliable" & "the FBI is unaware of any derogatory information pertaining to Source H1".

However, the FBI KNEW this statement to be unfactual
C) on pg 11 of the hand written notes, Kavalec types the words - Cohen / Prague.

These also appeared in a typed memo which she forwarded to the FBI, which have interestingly now been retroactively redacted from her document. We know from public record Cohen was never in Prague
D) 8 days later, Chris Steele told the FBI directly in his memo/dossier that his "Russian Source" was unsure of the people Cohen allegedly met with, where they met & what dates they were supposed to have met on.

Why is this important? It shows Steele lied to the FBI &/or St Dpt
E) An interesting twist is the retroactive redactions, which will not be released until 2041. These redactions from Kavalecs original typed memo 2 the FBI occurred at Wray's (FBI Director) request on April 25th this year. WHY? Because false testimony was presented to the FISC !!!
F) @dbongino is rightfully calling 4 @POTUS 2 unredact some of these docs, including the 1 below. Why? because it appears that Kavalec live checked facts on the run regarding peoples travel in & out of the US. It's possible the redacted portion is about Cohen NOT going to Prague.
G) it appears within these Kavalec notes the Former Russian Presidential Aid (to Putin), Vladislav Surkov has been listed as a Steele “source” for the dossier. This is VERY problematic as he is on the sanctions list. What are Steele & the FBI doing having contact with him?
Kavalec: PO, U.S. Embassy Moscow, Russia (1992-1994)
Steele: 1990 to 1993, diplomatic cover; MI6 agent Moscow-UK Embassy.

Info makes me ask the question, how was their contact initiated during the 2016 campaign? @POTUS
