FBI agents violated the law to share secrets with Steele

Allegedly, of course. But the source is the IG report. The FBI receive most of Steele's information, but then meets with him in October. There, according to the IG report, they (several FBI agents from Crossfire Hurricane) shared with Steele the information they had gathered on alleged Trump-Russia links.

This would allow Steele to investigate -- or make up -- details the FBI needed to support their own investigation and obtain further FISA approvals. It would also allow Steele to ferry the FBI's collected information back to the Clinton campaign, effectively turning the FBI into an opposition research team for the Clinton campaign.

It probably also puts the agents involved in legal jeopardy.
