The former British intelligence operative who created the dossier about allegations of Donald Trump’s ties to Russia was reimbursed by the FBI for some expenses.

The arrangement ended when Christopher Steele, the former M16 spy, said he didn’t believe the FBI was doing enough to examine the ties between Russia and Trump’s campaign, CNN reports. 

Although the FBI didn’t hire Steele as an informant, an arrangement was made to pay for some expenses.

When the FBI received Steele’s dossier last summer, the bureau managed to confirm some details.

FBI Takes Salacious Trump Dossier More Seriously As New Details Emerge

An FBI investigation into the 35-page dossier about Donald Trump may be gaining legitimacy with the FBI after new details came to light.

The dossier, which Trump has described as fiction, contains serious allegations about misconduct by Trump and his campaign.

Investigators have corroborated some details in the salacious dossier and are now taking the issue more seriously, the Christian Science Monitor reports. 

The Monitor wrote:

On Saturday, anonymous sources told CBS News that law enforcement officials had begun to take the dossier more seriously as the investigation continues, even among some of the more skeptical law enforcement officials involved with the investigation. The day before, CNN released a report that said “multiple current and former US law enforcement and intelligence officials” had corroborated some of the communications associated with the dossier.

According to CNN, the corroboration relates to certain conversations between Russian officials and other Russian individuals described in the dossier. Investigators found that at least some of these conversations actually took place “on the same days and from the same locations as detailed in the dossier.” The content of these conversations, however, may not have actually contained any reference to Trump.

The nation’s intelligence services revealed to President-elect Donald Trump that they and Russia had salacious allegations about him in a 35-page dossier that included comprising personal information.

U.S. officials provided Trump, President Obama and congressional leaders with a two-page summary of the dossier after it became exceedingly clear that many news organizations had the information, the The Washington Post  reports. The FBI, CIA, Director of National Intelligence and the NSA agreed it was a good idea to inform Trump of the allegations. 

Trump denied the claims in the dossier, calling the information fake news and accusing intelligence agencies of Nazi-like tactics.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper Jr. said he told Trump that a “private security company” made the allegations and that U.S. spy agencies had “not made any judgment that the information in this document is reliable.”

“However, part of our obligation is to ensure that policymakers are provided with the fullest possible picture of any matters that might affect national security,” Clapper said.
