By PJ Media. Reuters is reporting that one of the pivotal characters involved in the origins of the Russia investigation will refuse to speak to the prosecutor appointed by Attorney General William Barr to investigate the matter.
Christopher Steele, author of the infamous dossier accusing Trump of colluding with the Russians, will not talk to John Durham, named by Barr to examine the origins of the investigations into Trump and his campaign team, according to a business associate of Steele’s.
Steele’s dossier, used by the FBI to gain a FISA warrant against members of the Trump 2016 presidential campaign, has never been verified and has largely been discredited by other sources. . .
Steele would certainly have embarrassing questions to answer if he was interviewed by Durham. Other intel officials, ordered by Trump to cooperate in the probe, might be equally reluctant to share what they know.

British Ex-Spy Will Not Talk to U.S. Prosecutor Examining Trump Probe Origins: Source
By Reuters. The former British spy who produced a dossier describing alleged links between Donald Trump and Russia will not cooperate with a prosecutor assigned by U.S. Attorney General William Barr to review how the investigations of Trump and his 2016 election campaign began, a source with knowledge of the situation said.
Christopher Steele, a former Russia expert for the British spy agency MI6, will not answer questions from prosecutor John Durham, named by Barr to examine the origins of the investigations into Trump and his campaign team, said the source close to Steele’s London-based private investigation firm, Orbis Business Intelligence.
Trump has given Barr broad authority to declassify intelligence materials related to the investigations. Last week Trump ordered the heads of U.S. spy and law enforcement agencies to cooperate with Durham. . .
Democrats accuse Trump of trying to turn attention away from the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose report into Russian interference in the 2016 election described numerous links between the Trump campaign and Moscow, and said Trump had repeatedly tried to impede the investigation.
The source close to Steele’s company said Steele would not cooperate with Durham’s probe but might cooperate with a parallel inquiry by the Justice Department’s Inspector General into how U.S. law enforcement agencies handled pre-election investigations into both Trump and Clinton.
