Michael Isikoff, the reporter who first broke the existence the discredited Trump dossier compiled by ‘British spy’ Christopher Steele, is now walking back the credibility of the information he was given.
The investigative reporter who first broke the story based on allegations from Ex-British spy Christopher Steele offered a surprising new assessment of the infamous dossier, which alleges a vast conspiracy of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
“Would you agree that a lot of what’s in the Steele dossier has been somewhat vindicated?” Mediaite columnist John Ziegler asked Michael Isikoff.
“No,” Isikoff responded in an interview released Saturday.
“You would not?” asked Ziegler.
“you actually get into the details of the Steele dossier, the specific allegations, we have not seen the evidence to support them, and, in fact,
there’sgood grounds to think that some of the more sensational allegations will never be proven and are likely false,” Isikoff said.
“It’s a mixed record at best,” he added. “Things could change. Mueller may yet produce evidence that changes this calculation but based on the public record at this point, I’d have to say that most of the specific allegations have not been borne out.”
Now that Michael Isikoff is walking back and doubting the authenticity of the Steele dossier it tarnishes the fact that his original report and the dossier itself has been used for the initial FISA warrant application that kicked off this entire Russia investigation. An investigation started on false premises and if nothing else proves this is all one big witch hunt.
