Matt, you're a liar.

1) Steele said this was raw intel requiring further vetting.
2) He has a stellar rep in the IC and has worked with our agencies.
3) He always said some of the intel was inaccurate.
4) Even so, major media reports reveal *well over half* of it is *accurate*.
1/ As you *well* know, Matt, *all* raw intel has cruft in it, *not* because it's part of a massive deep-state or Kremlin conspiracy but because even well-intended sources get things wrong. And Steele, as a the former Moscow desk chief for MI6, had *incredible* sources in-country.
2/ You're going to lose this fight because you and the president are *lying* to the American people. When PROOF OF CONSPIRACY lands, those lies are going to be revealed, and your unpatriotic war against the brave men and women of federal law enforcement—American heroes—will fail.
3/ Nothing in the dossier has been *disproven* except a misspelling ("Alpha Bank"). You call Cohen a vicious liar, but your "proof" the dossier is fake is... Cohen's claims on whether he ever traveled to Prague. It's a wild self-contradiction on your part. Is Cohen a liar or not?
4/ Moreover, as you well know, the dossier cites *many* sources without even a theoretical motive to lie—including individuals connected to the Trump campaign, individuals connected to the Trump Organization, Ritz Moscow employees and other civilians. Why would all of *them* lie?
5/ I'm not one of those who assumes those who disagree with me have a nefarious motive or are compromised by the behavior they're trying to cover up. No—my assumption is just that you're a coward who's disloyal to this country, fears not being re-elected, and believes in nothing.
6/ You and the White House fear PROOF OF CONSPIRACY not because you have any opinion one way or another on me. I'm just the curator of thousands of major media sources whose credibility you can't individually attack. What you fear is what the intelligence community already knows.
7/ You don't even have any evidence that Steele knew who he was working for besides Fusion, that he had any historical political leanings, or that he would ever betray his longtime partners in the FBI by becoming (and why would he?) a Kremlin agent. Your story is rank *nonsense*.
8/ Moreover, you know that Steele *began* his work when *Republicans* were paying Fusion for Steele's contract work—and it was while being paid (via Fusion) by *Republicans* that Steele discovered the information about the Ritz Moscow. You know who says so? THE DAILY CALLER does.
9/ Deep down you *know* you're not intelligent enough to keep this charade up—nor are chumps like Papadopoulos. You've declared *war* on the most efficient, effective, and systemically sophisticated law enforcement agencies in the world. Do you *really* think you're going to win?
10/ Your deep-state conspiracy theory is that *every U.S. law enforcement agency* was involved in an international scheme to hide the fact that they're bleeding-heart liberals and were in the tank for *Clinton*. Oh—and that *Putin* was in the tank for Clinton, too. It's *insane*.
11/ I worked with law enforcement in the criminal justice system for years and years, and you could hunt *all day* at a precinct for a single Democrat. *Anyone* who knows the system knows that—and *anyone* who follows politics knows the FBI was called "Trumplandia" pre-election.
12/ I don't know how stupid you think the folks you represent in Florida are, but they'd have to be egregiously so to buy your pap. You're going to need 100,000,000+ dim-witted Americans to fall for this quixotic assault on our heroes in federal service. Good luck with that. /end
PS/ And *no one* who in good faith read any of Bob Mueller's appointment letters and/or subsequent scope-expansion/adjustment letters from Rosenstein thinks Mueller was tasked with investigating...the FBI. That's what DOJ has an Inspector General for—which you *also* well know.
