1/ One of the interesting upshots from the Sussmann indictment is that we now have a very tangible example of the Steele m.o., i.e. where Steele takes orders from the Hillary campaign and just make up shit made from whole cloth, tailor made in accordance with the orders given.
2/ Specifically, Steele met Sussmann on July 29, 2016 and was told about Alfa. At some point, either through Sussmann or Simpson, Steele was then told to write up another one of his bullshit reports to coincide with Sussmann taking the fabricated Alfa "evidence" to the FBI.
3/ The result was the infamous report 112 issued on Sep 14, 2016, five days before Sussmann pulled the trigger with Baker from the FBI.

Report 112 is the subject of the ongoing Alfa v Simpson lawsuit.

This was all known but the indictment still provides helpful confirmation.
4/ Essentially, the indictment confirms that Steele (Danchenko) just wrote up whatever bullshit Hillary's campaign wanted at any given time.

@climateaudit @FOOL_NELSON, @walkafyre and I have long held the view that Danchenko was given tasks and would then go and google stuff.
5/ The Alfa case provides great evidence for that. Steele (Danchenko) claimed that Alfa employee Oleg Govorun was the conduit between Alfa and Putin when he was deputy mayor of St Petersburg.

Problem is that Govorun's role at Alfa and Putin's mayorship NEVER OVERLAPPED.
6/ Putin left St Petersburg in June 1996. Govorun took up his position at Alfa in March 1997.

But if you look at old Wikipedia entries for Govorun, it appears like there was an overlap. In other words, Steele (Danchenko) built their tale around false Wikipedia info.
7/ Btw, Wikipedia editing history suggests that the false information on Govorun was cleaned up in Jan of this year.

1/ "China Pressured WHO Investigators to Dismiss the Lab Leak Theory"

Our latest on Truth over News with @themarketswork and myself.

2/ In January 2021, the WHO sent a team to Wuhan to investigate the origins of Covid-19.

After much fanfare, the team’s leader, Peter Ben Embarek announced at a February 9, 2021 press conference that the virus had a natural origin and that a lab leak was “extremely unlikely”.
3/ Embarek’s claims received almost immediate push-back from an unexpected source, World Health Organization director Tedros who – on February 12th – stated that all hypotheses in relation to the virus’ origin remained “on the table”.

This is from the latest Fauci email drop. It's a pre-pandemic email from Ping Chen, Fauci's man in China (didn't know NIAID had someone over there).

Looks like they were keeping a close eye on projects.

Notice the b(5) "inter-agency or intra-agency" redaction being abused here.
Fauci's man in China went to the Wuhan Lab to discuss "common interests" (p. 26).

Fauci knew exactly what was going on over there.
NIH funded 2221 projects in China from 2010-18. Fauci's share is by far the biggest.

1/ Leaving aside the fact that six witnesses have now sworn under penalty of perjury that they didn't tell Danchenko anything in the dossier, in some cases it's not even possible that they did.
2/ Steele was tasked with writing the Alfa Bank story on September 11, 2016 (as he twice claimed under oath in London court proceedings) or in late July 2016 (which was his amended testimony when pressed on it in court).
3/ The trouble with the claim that Abyshev was the source for the Alfa Bank information is that Abyshev met Danchenko only once in 2016 and that was before Steele was tasked with anything to do with Alfa Bank.

The Putin interview is very good. This guy is on top of his game, knows every issue in detail, knows how to pivot, knows how to troll. He just runs rings around this NBC stenographer. Biden is going to have a tough day tomorrow.
Trump level trolling here.
The NBC stenographer had a bad day. Lol.

ICYMI, @amymaxmen is a "journalist" working for Nature magazine. She's been shilling for Daszak for a long time.

Today she claimed a photo of her and Daszak was doctored.

Turns out there's an entire 95 minute video of her with Daszak.
h/t @alamentarius
Strangely neither Daszak's name nor the name of his fellow natural origins hoaxer Ian Lipkin appear on the webpage of the event where Amy say next to Peter.

The page was not archived until today so no way of knowing whether Pulitzer scrubbed the names.
Peter Daszak, who's that? Never met the guy.
