John Kerry Under Investigation for Role in Steele Dossier

What did John Kerry know and when did he know it?

That’s the question on the minds of the members of the House Intelligence Committee, specifically regarding the infamous “Trump dossier” developed by ex-British spy Christopher Steele.

Independent investigator Sara Carter reports:

The House Select Committee on Intelligence is now investigating former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s possible role into the unverified dossier paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton Campaign, this reporter has learned. The dossier, assembled by a former British spy, laid the foundation for the FBI’s investigation into alleged collusion between President Trump and Russia and was the essential piece of evidence used by the FBI to get a warrant to spy on a former volunteer for the Trump campaign.

The investigation was launched in light of a strange op-ed published by The Washington Post last Friday. Penned by a long-time State Department bureaucrat, Jonathan Winer, the article revealed that Winer not only had a friendship with Steele, but was made aware of the dossier sometime in the autumn of 2016. Winer writes, “In September 2016, Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the ‘dossier.’ Steele’s sources suggested that the Kremlin not only had been behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign but also had compromised Trump and developed ties with his associates and campaign.”

Winer would later pass this information up the food chain in the State Department, eventually making it to Kerry.

Winer also revealed his friendship with Sidney Blumenthal, the well-known Clinton hatchetman, who also had knowledge of another dossier. John Kerry reportedly reviewed that second dossier.

Now Winer maintains that the Nunes memo, which outlined possible FBI abuse of evidence in regards to the FISA court, is much ado about nothing. But his personal friendship with Steele has led to many questions about his judgement.

No matter, as House Intelligence Committee members have extended their investigation to John Kerry, and the entire State Department. It looks like more people knew about the discredited dossier than previously known.

So why are we only hearing about all of it now?

What do you think about this investigation? Is John Kerry hiding something? Tell us your thoughts below!

  • John Kerry should have been sent to prison for the rest of his life for treason during the Vietnam war. Perhaps then, the dossier wouldn't have been a problem for him now.

  • Oh No! Lurch might be in trouble? Oh Lord! The horror! I am going to sell all of my Hillary '' I'm With Her'' campaign buttons to help pay for his defense. Perhaps he can get some funds from the Clinton Foundation?

  • The State Dept has been corrupt for decades. The corruption was heightened during the term of Communist Barack Obama and it was maintained by Hillary Clinton and then John Kerry. Communists don't debate, they attack and destroy political opposition. They're deceitful and very dangerous. But it appears that a lot of people are now caught up in this web of deceit.

  • Swift boat captain John Kerry used the 3 purple heart rule to return early stateside. His so-called wounds were self-inflicted. Once stateside he proceeded to lead anti-war rallies after testifying before a senate committee that his fellow soldiers were baby killers and rapists. His perfidy finally caught up with him as he received a less-than-honorable discharge for not attending navy reserve meetings as per his navy contract. Kerry caught a break when then president Jimmy Carter upgraded Kerry's discharge to honorable when he, Carter, pardoned the Vietnam deserters and those who fled to Canada.

  • John Kerry is another one of those Obama weasels that backed Obama to the very end and that is coming soon..I lost all respect for John Kerry when he tried lying about his role in the Vietnam war. Members of his unit had to call him out and tell it like it really was. John Kerry was no hero that's for sure!! I just do not trust John Kerry to do right by the United States or it's people. He is a very shady person. Then when he tried to get out of paying his taxes on his yacht by trying to store it elsewhere to try and beat paying his taxes on it..He cannot be trusted and I do honestly believe that he probably knows a lot more than has been revealed yet too. All of those front line Democrats are thick as thieves together probably in this conspiracy against President Trump. Hopefully this investigation will show the character that he is..The House Intelligence Committee have some real sharp heads on their committee and if there is anything that John Kerry is guilty off they will eventually turn it up into the open..John Kerry is another of of those elite wallering in that corruption cesspool of a swamp in DC and our government.. It appears that AG Jeff Sessions and President Trump are about to start draining that swamp of corruption as of now.. It will turn up many criminals both big and small potatoes once the conspiracy bubble starts to unravel. It is starting to do that now as more and more evidence rises to the top day after day with new findings and names. Appears some of the guilty don't want to be serving time by themselves. They will begin to start spilling the beans on each other and each others role in the conspiracy. It won't be long and AG Sessions should be sending out indictments and the White House Security police will be carrying out arrests on some.The people don't want any of these Obama cronies to escape their punishment for their active participation in this conspiracy plot. The biggest scandal in government history and it may even take down a President with it before all of the dust finally settles. Let's hope that AG Sessions will leave no stone unturned and that he will completely drain this DC swamp and indict all of those that have been found to have broken the law no matter how big or small the crime maybe. President Trump needs to clean all of this mess up so that he can get on with his agenda of making America great again..Time to clean out all of those old toads in that swamp so we can get on with our countries needs with a honorable Congress to get the job done. No more stagnation both parties will begin working together again for the betterment of America and for the will of the people..Go get um AG Sessions!! The people are counting on you to clean out that swamp of corruption and not to miss a one of those criminals..
