The Cody Shearer Memo and The Christopher Steele Dossier:
Winer, Steele, Blumenthal, Kerry, Shearer Connection to the Clinton Machine
Rising Serpent Feb 8, 2018 
Johnathan Winer-Christopher Steele-Sidney Blumenthal-Sen John Kerry-Cody Shearer connection.
“I returned to the State Department at the request of Secretary of State John F. Kerry, whom I had previously served as Senate counsel. Over the years, [Christopher] Steele and I had discussed many matters relating to Russia”
“Over the next two years, I shared more than 100 of Steele’s reports with the Russia experts at the State Department, who continued to find them useful”
“In summer of 2016, Steele told me he had learned of disturbing information regarding possible ties between Trump, his campaign and senior Russian officials. He did not provide details but made clear the information involved “active measures,” Soviet intelligence term for propaganda.”
“September 2016, Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the ‘dossier’.”
“In late September, I spoke with an old friend, Sidney Blumenthal, whom I met 30 years ago when I was investigating the Iran-Contra affair for then-Sen. John Kerry and Blumenthal was a reporter at The Post”
“While talking about that hacking, Blumenthal and I discussed Steele’s reports. He showed me notes gathered by a journalist I did not know, Cody Shearer“
Now this one gets even more interesting.
“What struck me was how some of the material echoed Steele’s but appeared to involve different sources. On my own, I shared a copy of these notes with Steele, to ask for his professional reaction. He told me it was potentially “collateral” information. I asked what that meant...”
“He said that it was similar but separate from the information he had gathered from his sources. I agreed to let him keep a copy of Shearers’ notes. I did not mention or share Shearers’ notes with anyone at State Department. I did not expect them to be shared with anyone in U.S. government”
“But I learned later that Steele did share them — with the FBI, after the FBI asked him to provide everything he had on allegations relating to Trump, his campaign and Russian interference in U.S. elections.”
So, the big question is….. Did Steele use Cody Shearer’s notes that Sidney Blumenthal had access to? Did Blumenthal make connection with Steele? Is John Kerry involved in this?

Devin Nunes Thread
Devin Nunes asking for all four FISA court appearance transcripts. That should really shed light on how these warrants were granted and what other information was used to convince FISC to authorize surveillance on US citizens.
Devin Nunes is preparing to release the second memo in his investigation into alleged corruption at the FBI and Department of Justice. The memo will focus on abuses at State Department and a second Trump-Russia dossier. Yes a second dossier.
Cody Shearer gave his dossier to Hillary Clinton acolyte Sidney Blumenthal. I wrote about it a few days ago. [See above]
from source 
Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch said “The only basis was a smear job created by Clinton operatives. … There was even another Clinton dossier given to the FBI by Cody Shearer – a Clinton operative.”
Are these dossiers Gremlins? You put some water on them and there’s two notes? I’m betting Schiff is going to come out with “It’s a lie/farce” statement soon.
I guess this new information answers some of these questions [See above]

The so-called “Shearer dossier” is a report about Trump currently being investigated by the FBI. The memo was reportedly compiled during the 2016 campaign by Cody Shearer, a friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Unlike Christopher Steele, Mr. Shearer has no background in espionage. The dossier was reportedly given to the FBI by Mr. Steele, after FBI demanded he hand over any evidence that could be useful in their investigation of possible Russian meddling in the US election.
Mr. Shearer maintained ties with the Clinton White House in the 1990’s, and helped provide information to Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State. He grew close to the Clintons’ through family connections.
Shrearer’s brother-in-law, Strobe Talbott, became friends with Bill Clinton while at Oxford, later served as special adviser to the Secretary of State during the Clinton administration. Shearer’s brother, Derek, served Clinton administration as ambassador to Finland.
Hacked emails showed Shearer and Sidney Blumenthal helped provide Hillary with intelligence about the situation in Libya, weeks before Islamic militants attacked a US diplomatic outpost in the country.
Mr. Shearer was investigated by the State Department Inspector General in 1998, after he led negotiations that “caused temporary diplomatic damage in Bosnia”
Derek’s sister Brooke worked on Hillary Rodham Clinton’s staff and is married to Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott, the president’s buddy from his Oxford days.
Shearer obtained information from an unidentified foreign source who then provided the information to his longtime friend and fellow Clinton crony, Sidney Blumenthal. Blumenthal then provided the information to Johnathan Winer, his friend.
I wrote about Winer a few days ago. [See above]

Shearer memo and Steele dossier contain the same unverified allegations. Shearer memo was that Russia’s spy agency, the FSB, had video footage of Trump engaging with prostitutes during 2013 trip to Moscow. First memo in Steele’s dossier, June 20, 2016, makes a similar allegation.
It remains unclear whether Shearer and Steele obtained their information from the same source. Shearer and Steele share common friends; however, their reputations as gatherers of information are quite different.
Steele began working in 2010 with Fusion GPS, the firm that was hired later by former Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee to investigate Trump
Shrearer first gained notoriety in 1991 after he peddled the false allegation that then-Vice President Dan Quayle bought drugs from political activist Brett Kimberlin.
Shearer was also reportedly investigated in the late-1990s by the State Department’s inspector general because he misrepresented himself as a government official during negotiations with associates of a Bosnian warlord.
At one point Shrearer said “I have had absolutely nothing to do with the release of materials contained in the Russian dossier, nor have I pushed these documents to reporters.” Of course this was prior to all this information coming to light.
The Circle of Filth is an ever burgeoning entity turgid with depravity and deceit. Moral turpitude is it’s entry criterion and sedition it’s modus operandi.

Tale of 2 dossiers
- 1. Hillary/DNC-Perkins Coie-Steele Dossier
- 2. Hillary-Sid Blumenthal-Johnathan Winer-Cody Shrearer Dossier
- 3. Hypothesis linking them: Shearer originated accusations, then laundered through Steele who produced Shearer’s memo as corroboration for his work.

Here is the back story on how Johnathan Winer came to be in possession of the Cody Shrearer document told in his own words. [See above]
from source 
“In September(2016), I spoke with an old friend, Sidney Blumenthal, whom I met 30 years ago. Blumenthal & I discussed Steele’s reports. He showed me notes gathered by a journalist, Cody Shearer, that alleged Russians had compromising information on Trump of a sexual nature.” quoted above by Winer.
The September 2016 timeline is the best I could find for Shrearer. Presumably this meant that Shrearer’s dossier was known to Blumenthal well before then.
We are now informed that Shrearer spent 6 months crisscrossing Europe looking for dirt on Trump. This was independent of spies and NSA.
So Steele was paid to find dirt on Trump. Presumably so was Shrearer. Shrearer’s work probably served as background for Steele dossier. NSA and other spies were also paying for dirt on Trump.
My conclusion: there was a Leviathan, concentrated, coordinated and extremely well funded, politically motivated effort to destroy Trump’s reputation. The means and the veracity of the information was completely irrelevant. It was to ensure he’d never become president.
Johnathan Winer was former secretary state John Kerry’s special envoy to Libya and his Senate adviser, John Kerry…. How incredibly interesting
As secretary of state prior to the 2016 election, John Kerry was briefed on allegations made in the infamous Steele dossier about Donald Trump. According to The Post, Kerry was briefed in late September or early October 2016 on information collected by Steele. WHAT!!!
Turns out Jonathan Winer, who at the time served as the State Department’s Special Envoy for Libya, put together a two-page memo on Steele’s allegations that was provided to Kerry. Yes….
Winer is the second government official outside of the FBI known to have discussed the dossier with Steele. Steele also met with Bruce Ohr, who then served as deputy assistant attorney general.
According to The Post, Kerry and the State Department took no action on the dossier after receiving a briefing of Winer’s memo. That’s because Kerry’s staff learned that the FBI had already been in touch with Steele and had information from the dossier.
So basically Jonathan Winer was the point of intersection between the Steele dossier and the Shrearer dossier. He personally knew Christopher Steele and had worked with him around 2009. He had also conveyed to his then boss John Kerry the existence of the Steele dossier.
The concentric circles of the Circle of Filth
Is John Kerry an important player in the tale of two dossiers? The preliminary evidence would seem to suggest that he knew off at least one if not both. However I think we are about to find out more than we bargained for.
I think in the interest of simplicity and elegance the easiest question to ask would be “Is there anybody in Obama administration who did not know about the Steele Dossier?” It would lend itself to a smaller and more easily countable number of people.

“Digging for Filth: A detour into the shadowy world of Clinton acolytes” Preferably read this in conjunction with my Tale of Two dossiers quoted below. [See above]
from source 
Few people have heard of Cody Shearer, a Clinton flunky who was funneling “intelligence reports” Sidney Blumenthal was channeling to Hillary Clinton during her time at the State Department.
His father is Lloyd Shearer, former editor of Parade magazine who wrote often gossipy and reputation-ruining articles. Lloyd was friends with the Clintons’. A sign was erected over Lloyd Shearer’s guest house: ”Bill Clinton slept here.’
Bill and Hillary Clinton were college friends of his elder son and Cody’s brother, Derek. Derek Shearer was eventually named ambassador to Finland; his sister, Brooke, became a senior adviser to the secretary of the interior.
A series of columns Cody Shearer wrote on the sexual proclivities of former Texas senator John Tower sank his nomination for defense secretary in 1989. Interestingly Senator Tower and his daughter died in a plane crash. There were no survivors.
Kathleen Willey, the woman who said Bill Clinton groped her in the Oval Office, claimed she was the target of an unusual house burglary that nabbed a manuscript for her upcoming book with revelations that could have damage Hillary’s presidential campaign.
Little else was taken from her rural Virginia home as she slept alone upstairs — electronics and jewelry were left behind. She blamed the Clinton’s for it. There was a man who threatened her just prior to her testimony against President Clinton the so called “jogger”.
In her book, Willey cites speculation that the so-called “jogger” was Cody Shearer….. Yes. That guy. Of course Media Matters bashed her for saying that.
In 2011, as a State Department-sanctioned revolution against the Qaddafi regime in Libya was picking up steam, longtime Clinton consigliere Sidney Blumenthal was sending “confidential” intelligence memos to Hillary Clinton.
He was touting leaders of the Libyan rebel movement with whom he had business dealings and pushing for the hire of private military contractors while working as an adviser to Osprey Global Solutions, a contracting company seeking to do business in Libya.
Shearer was aiding Blumenthal in these “intelligence” efforts. Gawker published an email from May 2011, Shearer appeared to be serving as the liaison between Blumenthal and “Grange,” the former Army general and CEO of Osprey.
They organized small team of contractors to conduct an unspecified mission to the Libyan border from Tunisia. Cody was in frequent contact with “K,” a Libyan named Khalifa al Sherif who seems to be feeding Shearer intelligence reports from inside Libyan revolutionary council.
Much of the intelligence contained in memos fed to the Clinton State Department by Blumenthal was not just self-serving — it was provided by someone with a history of misrepresenting himself as an agent of the U.S. government.
Turns out the word “opposition research” is not new and Cody Shearer is not new to conducting it. Slate in 1999 wrote “Shearer who, during the 1992 presidential campaign, introduced the world–through the unlikely medium of Doonesbury–to Brett Kimberlin.”
“Kimberlin was the convicted bomber, habitual liar, and all-around sociopath who claimed to have sold drugs to Dan Quayle. Was Shearer acting on behalf of the legendary Clinton “opposition research” outfit?”
Similar questions arose during Sen. Fred Thompson’s long, comprehensive, and inconclusive hearings into the Democratic Party’s 1996 campaign fund-raising shenanigans. There, Shearer’s name popped up in the course of Sen. Don Nickles’ angry questioning of Terry Lenzner.
Lenzner was a private investigator who would later, in the thick of the Jones/Lewinsky/Willey matter, be accused of coordinating efforts to smear and intimidate those women.
Shearer acted as a liaison between Lenzner’s firm, Investigative Group International, and the Cheyenne-Arapaho tribe. The tribe had donated more than $100,000 to the Dems, hoping that the administration would intervene on its behalf in a dispute over drilling rights on tribal land.
Using the amazing gift of hindsight, it is fairly clear even to a minimally discerning reader that the Clinton machine was perfecting it deceit/ intimidation/ bribery and pay to play machinery. They used Shadow men to damage reputations and heap threats on the non-compliant.
I wasn’t old enough to be politically savvy in 1999 when this story broke. Chris Matthews asked Kathleen Willey about the mysterious jogger who threatened her, her children and the cat. Chris Matthews asked “Is it a Shearer?”
The same Chris Matthews who got a thrill up his leg when Obama ran, the same MSM who has a boner lasting more than 4 hours when they saw Kim Jong Un’s sister at the Olympics. Will someone ask “Is it a Shearer?” when it involves treason against a sitting US president?
