Rachel Maddow Reveals Senators Could Have Met with Russia Dossier Author Christopher Steele, But Didn't

Media

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow shared reporting that former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele met with special investigator Bob Mueller's team and offered to speak with members of Congress.


Steele is the author of the infamous Russia dossier about alleged ties between President Donald Trump and Russia.

The revelation is startling, because the Senate Intelligence Committee has previously suggested that a conversation with Steele was not possible.

When Maddow's staff contacted the committee about Steele's offer, it responded that the group would welcome a meeting with Steele and neglected to confirm whether such an offer had been presented previously.

"[T]here may be a continuing political interest in Washington in trying to make the Christopher Steele dossier seem like a scandal or seem like an unplumbable depth that we’ll never be able to understand and nobody will ever be able to investigate,” Maddow explained.
