According to an email that Judicial Watch obtained the dossier that was published by Buzzfeed was identical to the one that John McCain gave the FBI.
The records include an email dated January 10, 2017, in which Strzok said that the version of the dossier published byÂ BuzzFeedÂ was â€œidenticalâ€ to the version given to the FBI by McCain and had â€œdifferencesâ€ from the dossier provided to the FBI by Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson andÂ Mother JonesÂ reporter David Corn. January 10, 2017, is the same dayÂ BuzzFeedÂ published the anti-Trump dossier by former British spy Christopher Steele, The emails also show Strzok and other FBI agents mocking President Trump a few weeks before he was inaugurated. In addition, the emails reveal that Strzok communicated with then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe about the â€œleak investigationâ€ tied to the Clinton Foundation (the very leak in which McCabe was later implicated).
More from Judicial Watch:
On January 10, 2017, Strzok, under the subject â€œRE: Buzzfeed published some of the reports,â€Â writes: â€œOur internet system is blocking the site. I have the pdf via iPhone, but itâ€™s 25.6MB. Comparing now. The set is only identical to what [Sen. John] McCain had (it has differences from what was given to us by Corn and Simpson).â€
Strzok sent the email to Page and several top-ranking FBI officials, including Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Assistant Director for the Counterintelligence Division Bill Priestap, Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Jon Moffa, Assistant Director for Public Affairs Michael Kortan, General Counsel James Baker, and Director James Comeyâ€™s Chief of Staff James Rybicki.
Earlier, on January 10, 2017,Â BuzzFeedÂ publishedÂ a version of the dossier that Strzok said was â€œidenticalâ€ to what McCainâ€™s office had turned over to the FBI. Strzok sent theBuzzFeed-related email at 7:48 PM. At 8:23 PM on the same day, Strzok forwards to Page and several FBI officials anÂ articleÂ by the UK outletÂ The GuardianÂ titled â€œFBI chief given dossier by John McCain alleging secret Trump-Russia contacts.â€
David Corn was one of Steeleâ€™sÂ media contacts. Fusion GPS paid Steele, via funds from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clintonâ€™s campaign, to write the dossier. InÂ testimonyÂ to the Senate Judiciary Committee in August 2017, Simpson said he was not aware of any version of the Steele dossier being given to the FBI.
