BuzzFeed Hires Former Top FBI Official to Track Down Authenticity of So-Called Steele Dossier

President Trump

BuzzFeed has hired a former top FBI and White House cybersecurity expert to lead a team trying to verify parts of the controversial, disputed Steele dossier that suggested Russia had compromising information on President Trump.

Anthony Ferrante, who now works at FTI Consulting, a Washington-based advisory firm, has worked on the investigation for about six months, traveling around the globe to obtain more information on the veracity of the dossier, Foreign Policy reports.

BuzzFeed was the first news organization to publish the dossier, which alleged there were ties between Trump and Russia.

The story prompted a lawsuit against BuzzFeed, which is scurrying to defend the report, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Trump dismissed the dossier as fiction, suggesting it’s another example of federal law enforcement’s campaign to bring down the president.
