Dibble calls the @FBI's Legal Attaché office to relay the information provided by Downer.
The @FBI Legal Attaché sends an electronic communication documenting the information provided by Downer to the assistant special agent in charge at the Philadelphia field office.
The electronic communication is email to Charles McGonigal, the section chief of the Cyber Counterintelligence Coordination Section at the @FBI headquarters.
Gaeta notes in an email to an @FBI supervisor that, according to Steele, the first 2 Steele reports "may already be circulating at a 'high level' in Washington, DC."

Lisa Page, who is working on the #CrossfireHurricane counterintelligence investigation, texts to Strzok, "And Trump should go f himself."
Strzok sends the now-infamous "insurance policy" text, referring to Andrew #McCabe and Trump, to Lisa Page: "I'm afraid we can't take that risk. It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event that you die before you're 40."
Gaeta contacts Steele and asks him for more reports. Steele would later tell the @JusticeOIG that he only supplied one report to Gaeta up to this point; however Gaeta had received report 94 from Steele on July 19, 2016.
Manafort resigns from the Trump campaign following media reports regarding his past lobbying work for pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarchs and a @NYTimes report that Manafort's name appeared in a handwritten Ukrainian ledger alledgedly detailing cash payments.

Gaeta asks the associate division counsel and counterintelligence supervisor at the New York field office to tell him who should receive the Steele reports at @FBI HQ.
Bruce Ohr and Gaeta exchange emails regarding Steele. Gaeta tells Ohr that an @FBI team was "looking into Steele's information." Ohr asks Gaeta to let him know whom to contact with additional information. Gaeta would later say he didn't respond.
Gaeta emails 6 Steele reports to Pientka at @FBI headquarters. The memo containing the Alfa Bank allegations is not among these.
The #CrossfireHurricane team obtains 6 of Steele's reports. According to the Inspector General, the "receipt of Steele's election reporting on September 19, 2016 played a role in the FBI's and Department's decision to seek the FISA order."
The #CrossfireHurricane team drafts an intelligence memorandum summarizing key points from 6 Steele reports that they had received the day before.

Pientka requests that Gaeta participate in a video conference call with the #CrossfireHurricane team to set up a meeting with Steele.

But in 2017, the primary sub-source would dispute some of Steele's claims.
Steele has a 2nd meeting with @PerkinsCoieLLP attorney Marc Elias. This would be at least the 3rd time Steele met with a senior Perkins Coie attorney.
Steele's primary sub-source is informed that a secret meeting between @CarterWPage and Rosneft chief Sechin had actually taken place.
Steele meets with @StateDept employees Winer and Kathleen Kavalec. Kavalec's boss, Nuland, is aware of the meeting but ultimately does not attend. Steele would tell the IG that he was delayed at the airport and that Nuland left before he arrived.
Winer provides Steele with a separate dossier that he had received from longtime Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal. This "2nd dossier" had been compiled by another longtime Clinton operative and echoed claims in the #SteeleDossier.
The OI attorney received a summary from the supervisory intel analyst of @FBI's early Oct. meeting with Steel "that attributed the information in Report 95 to Person 1 and stated that Steele had described Person 1 as a boaster and embellisher."
During a 3 day period, @FBI team advises Evans further on Steele, telling him "that Steele was hired by Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS, they did not know Simpson's motivations, and they did not know the name of the law firm that retained Fusion GPS…"
Kavalec emails an @FBI Counterintelligence Division section chief a document she received from Winer concerning allegations about a linkage between Alfa Bank and the Trump campaign. The section chief forwards the document to Pientka the same day.
Bruce Ohr again meets with Steele, to discuss Deripaska. After the call, Ohr meets with #McCabe to share the info. Lisa Page is also present.
@NSAGov head Rogers is briefed of findings from the 702-compliance audit. The audit uncovered a large number of issues, including numerous "about query" violations.
