What Role Did Kerry Play in the Steele Dossier?

Here's one data point from Kerry's violations of the Logan Act while engaged in contacts with an Islamic terrorist group.

During the conversation, according to the report, Kerry asked Agha to convey a message to Abbas and ask him to “hold on and be strong.” Tell him, he told Agha, “that he should stay strong in his spirit and play for time, that he will not break and will not yield to President [Donald] Trump’s demands.”

According to Kerry, Trump will not remain in office for a long time. It was reported that Kerry said that within a year there was a good chance that Trump would not be in the White House.

Back then, I asked, "Does Kerry believe that, in the way that so many CNN and Washington Post listeners and readers do, or, as the guy close to the center of Obama Inc's eavesdropping efforts, does he actually know?"

Here's Sara Carter reporting that the heat is about to be turned on the terrorist's favorite guy in D.C.

The House Select Committee on Intelligence is now investigating former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s possible role into the unverified dossier paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton Campaign, this reporter has learned. 

Jonathan Winer, a long-time colleague of Kerry and who served as the former envoy for Libya during his tenure at the Department, wrote an opinion piece in the Washington Post on Feb. 8, defending his relationship with Steele and his role in the infamous dossier.

Winer attempted to pre-empt questions that the committee would ask regarding his role by admitting in his article that he was a long-time friend of Steele. He also established his close working relationship with Kerry saying, “in 2013, I returned to the State Department at the request of Secretary of State John F. Kerry, whom I had previously served as Senate counsel.”

Also in September, 2016 Steele briefed Winer on the dossier at a Washington Hotel, according to an expose recently published in The New Yorker. Winer prepared his summary and shared it with former Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland and Jon Finer, who was then chief of staff Kerry. Kerry was then briefed by Finer several days later, according to the report. 

That's the official story, much of it comes from Obama Inc. The New Yorker piece wants readers to believe that Kerry didn't want to have anything to do with the dossier. But his message to Abbas suggests that he was far more involved in Team Coup than Jane Mayer would like us to believe.
