Christopher Steele's reputation not as good as advertised

Daily WireThe former boss of the ex-British spy who produced the uncorroborated, salacious dossier on President Donald Trump’s alleged Russian collusion says the document is “overrated,” and wouldn’t comment on the character of the man who wrote it.

Sir John Scarlett, who was the chief of the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) from 2004 to 2009, said after a recent national security panel in Washington, D.C. that the dossier Christopher Steele, who ran MI6’s Russia desk from 2006 to 2009, allegedly wrote was “overrated” and could never be corroborated.

Bold was me. It's likely Steele didn't write all of the dossier.

But it seems that the quality -- or rather, the lack thereof -- of his work was well known within the intelligence community even before Mueller's report was delivered to AG Barr.
