Former Obama official confirms Steele dossier was given to State Department

Former Obama official confirms Steele dossier was given to State Department | 09 Feb 2018 | An official at former President Obama's State Department has confirmed a claim made by Republicans that former British spy Christopher Steele and allies of Hillary Clinton gave him intelligence reports claiming that President Trump was compromised by the Russians. In an op-ed for the Washington Post titled "Devin Nunes is investigating me: Here's the Truth," former U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Jonathan Winer says Steele and Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal approached him with separate dossiers claiming malfeasance between President Trump and Russia. Winer's op-ed confirms the chain of events Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) detailed in a criminal referral for Steele, in which he asks the Justice Department to investigate the former intelligence agent for allegedly lying to the FBI about his contacts with the media.
