New documents link Hillary Clinton to Steele and State Department

Washington ExaminerNewly released documents describe just how involved State Department employees were in British ex-spy Christopher Steele sharing unverified claims about President Trump's links to Russia with the FBI in 2016.

The records, among hundreds of pages declassified in August and released publicly on Wednesday, draw out the links between Steele and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, showing how the former MI6 officer worked with Clinton allies at the State Department to pass to FBI investigators unfounded Russia allegations during an election year that have cast a cloud over Trump throughout his presidency.

This comes as renewed scrutiny is being given to the role that Steele's anti-Trump dossier played in 2016, when Clinton faced off against Trump, and how some of President-elect Joe Biden's picks for top jobs in his incoming administration (such as Jake Sullivan for national security adviser and Neera Tanden for the White House's budget director) played roles in promoting now-discredited Trump-Russia claims.

Trump should declassify everything before he leaves, if in fact he does leave.
