Ex-MI6 spy Christopher Steele pulls out of rare public appearance at neocon event (Video)

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss former British spy Christopher Steele’s last second pull out of from his first public appearance in years, where he was scheduled to address an event in Baltimore via video link, to talk about (wait for it)…the threat of disinformation.

Event moderator, neocon Trump and Putin hater Anne Appelbaum, told Politico that Steele got “cold feet” and pulled out after advice from his legal counsel.

Steele is the man behind the fully debunked dossier on Trump which contained shocking, unverified intelligence (i.e. made up stories) about President Donald Trump, including that Russia had compromising information it could use to blackmail him.

The former British intelligence officer who authored the explosive 2016 dossier alleging President Donald Trump’s ensnarement by Russian intelligence has canceled his first public appearance in years at the last minute, an event organizer confirmed on Tuesday.

Ex-MI6 agent Christopher Steele had been scheduled to speak, via video link, about “disinformation and democracy” at the Reawakening the Spirit of Democracy event at the George Peabody Library in Baltimore on March 14.

Jill Rosen, a media relations officer for event co-organizer Johns Hopkins University, confirmed to Business Insider that Steele had pulled out of the event.

Washington Post columnist Anne Applebaum, the event’s moderator, told Politico Monday that Steele got “cold feet” and pulled out following advice from his legal counsel.

Steele’s low profile

Steele has kept a low profile since the publication of his dossier alleging the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

In 2016 Steele, the former Moscow station chief for MI6, was commissioned by private intelligence firm Fusion GPS to compel intelligence on then-Republican presidential candidate Trump.

Fusion GPS was initially hired by a conservative website to compile the dossier, and subsequently received funding from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The resulting dossier of intelligence compiled by Steele — much of it unverified — alleged widespread collusion between Russia and Trump officials, and contained a series of salacious allegations about Trump, including the claim that Russian intelligence had filmed him cavorting with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel room.

The dossier has become the center of a fierce bipartisan dispute, and has been denounced by Trump as “fake news.”
