But it becomes evident that the initial interest in Trump/Russia connections was based on human and signals intelligence from European allies.


The Nunes/Grassley allegations came about as close as they could comfortably go on the matter- trying to discredit that info as entirely the work of Steele on behalf of Crooked Hillary.


'Tis true that those allies have a strong Atlanticist interest in the foreign policy status quo and against a pivot to Russia. All of that establishment is none too pleased about Russian aid and comfort to their far right groups and general fomentation of discord within their political systems.
