After reading the whole thing through, this is what I get.
- Steele was paid $160K by Clinton as the DNC to create a reason to spy and wiretap a volunteer staffer with the Trump campaign. The fact that he was paid is not in the paperwork, but everyone kinda knew.
- Steele referenced a Yahoo article in the FISA application – in which he provided the source info – and then pretended it was info from someone else. He was fired as an FBI source because of this.
- The rest of the memo details Steele’s (and others’) deep interest in Trump losing the election.
Those are the main points to me. It was a politically motivated and financed witch hunt to smear Trump.
There’s probably more there when you start piecing together all of the periphery players involved.
