Christopher Steele waded back into American politics on Friday as the British ex-spy’s private investigative firm rebuked criticism from President Trump and defended the Trump-Russia dossier.

During a lengthy impeachment acquittal victory-lap speech at the White House yesterday, Trump repeatedly criticized what he saw as politically motivated investigations against him. The president harshly criticized Steele, whose salacious and unverified dossier was used extensively by the FBI and the Department of Justice to obtain surveillance warrants against Trump campaign associate Carter Page.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid for, millions of dollars, the fake dossier,” Trump claimed. “And now, Christopher Steele admits that its a fake because he got sued by rich people. I should’ve sued him too, but when you’re president, people don’t like you suing.”

“So we had a campaign,” Trump said Thursday. “Little did we know we were running against some very, very bad and evil people with fake dossiers, with all of these horrible, dirty cops that took these dossiers and did bad things.”

Orbis Business Intelligence, Steele’s company, tweeted in response:

“Yesterday @realDonaldTrump made false claims about us. He wildly exaggerated our fees and, contrary to his claims, we have never stated any of our reporting is ‘fake’. We stand by the integrity of our research on Kremlin interference in the 2016 election and support for Trump.”

Orbis suggested followers read additional material to understand their position.

Peter Strzok, the former FBI agent who’s anti-Trump messages led to speculation about a plan to remove the president from office, also responded to what he called “attacks” by Trump.

“I will have a great deal more to say about the president’s attacks on those with responsibility for holding him accountable,” Strzok tweeted.
