Steele views Mueller as part of the soft coup team?
The above is a big deal, but the documents only support it indirectly.
The obvious thing here is that Steele and Bruce are still talking. Steele thinks Mueller and the Bureau can "reengage" in something, presumably some aspect of investigating Trump. But Mueller can't engage with the Bureau and the Bureau can't engage with an investigation of Trump -- that's precisely the reason for a special counsel, he's supposed to be reasonably independent. So why does Steele think he can and should "reengage" with Mueller? Is he feeding Mueller information from Russian or other intel sources on Trump? It sure sounds like it -- and we know that the Trump investigation has been heavily funded by private sources.
But the biggest takeaway is that these transcripts go all the way to December of 2017. That's a year after the election. Why are Ohr and Steele still talking a year after the election? Remember, Steele was fired as a confidential source from the FBI before the election even happened. Bruce Ohr at DOJ picked up the information thread and fed information from Steele to the DOJ and FBI. Apparently, this continued past the election and almost a year into Trump's presidency, just from these excerpts. Possibly longer.
This is not how a normal government functions. This is a coup.
