FBI Reportedly Investigating Second Trump-Russia Dossier

 

Here we go again. According to a report by The Guardian, the FBI allegedly has possession of a second dossier detailing possible connections between President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

This newly revealed dossier was written by former journalist and political activist Cody Shearer, and the information contained therein has been greeted with skepticism by the media institutions he has shared it with. Despite this, however, the FBI is still taking it seriously enough to warrant a thorough investigation.

Shearer’s information can be traced back to “an unnamed source within the FSB, Russia’s state security service,” and allegedly accuses Trump was “compromised” during a 2013 trip to Moscow. The Shearer memo was provided to the FBI in October 2016.

Shearer does not have a background in intelligence, bringing the veracity of his dossier into question, though, at the very least, it could be used to help corroborate the FBI’s current timeline of events regarding Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 election.

This new batch of potentially damning information would be in addition to the infamous, and controversial, Christopher Steele dossier, which is what entered the words “pee tape” into the global lexicon. Thanks for that, we guess.
