During the 2016 election season, there were constant rumors about the Steele Dossier. Christopher Steele, a former British secret service agent, had produced a report on incriminating evidence against Donald Trump.
And according to people who knew of the report, Russian officials had kompromat on the former president. Trump was quite aware of the rumors. In fact, he brought up golden showers during a recent campaign appearance.
Steele was asked about the infamous ‘pee-pee tape’ during an interview with George Stephanopoulos. He told the host that the tape ‘probably exists.”
Stephanopoulos asked, “Do you think it hurts your credibility at all that you won’t accept the findings of the FBI in this particular case?”
“I’m prepared to accept that not everything in the dossier is 100 percent accurate,” said Steele. “I have yet to be convinced that that is one of them.”
When asked specifically about the tape, Steele replied, ” think it probably does, but I would not put 100 percent certainty on it.” The host countered, “How do you explain if that tape does, indeed, exist, it has not been released?”
The former MI-6 Agent answered, “It hasn’t needed to be released, because I think the Russians felt they’d got pretty good value out of Donald Trump when he was president of the U.S.”
