An ex-British spy who is allegedly responsible for the controversial and discredited dossier involving President-elect Trump also once helped the FBI on a case involving FIFA.
The Washington Post reports: “Back in 2009, the ex-British spy in question, Christopher David Steele, 52, of southwest London, and his London-based consulting firm, Orbis Business Intelligence, was hired by England’s Football Association to investigate FIFA over corruption allegations. It was his work on corruption in international soccer that lent credence to his reporting on Trump’s entanglements in Russia.”
Steele, who worked as an undercover spy for MI-6 for years in Russia, London, and France was also hired to investigate former European Commission Vice President Kristalina Georgieva, according to EurActiv.com.
Georgieva was a candidate for U.N. secretary-general when Steele began investigating her alleged links to a Bulgarian organized crime group known as Multigroup, run by Iliya Pavlov who was eventually assassinated in Sofia in 2003.
The New York Times reported that “Christopher David Steele, 52, was last seen leaving his home in the southwest of London on Wednesday.”
According to The Telegraph, a person close to Steele said, “He left his home because he now fears a prompt and potentially dangerous backlash from Moscow against him and his family.”
Trump attacked the media at a press conference on Wednesday for publishing the unsubstantiated material and also chastised U.S. intelligence officials, accusing them of leaking the allegations as if “this is Nazi Germany.”
