Turns Out Ivanka Trump Has Been Friends With Christopher Steele For 10 Years

Remember the infamous Steele Dossier and its author former British spy Christopher Steele? Turns out he’s been friends with Ivanka Trump for years. Seriously, like 10 years. A decade.

In the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report that was released on Monday, the friendship is alluded to and shows that Steele was favorably disposed to Pres. Donald Trump and his family because of the relationship.

Let’s just pop this up here before we continue, eh?

ABC News has confirmed that Ivanka Trump and Steele met in 2007 at a dinner and they’ve corresponded ever since. Supposedly the “friendship” was continued as they discussed a possible working relationship.

It’s been a bad news day for Trump and his conspiracy theorists since the IG report revealed that Steele was indeed NOT biased against Trump when he started the process of compiling opposition researched.

TwitterBut it gets better. Apparently Ivanka invited Steele to Trump Tower in 2010 after Steel went into private practice. Why, you ask? To offer him a job with the Trump Organization doing due diligence abroad as a part of the work he was doing for Orbis.

Trump has famously seethed about the Steele Dossier because it revealed that Trump has extensive Russian contacts and suggested that Trump might be compromised and blackmailed by the Kremlin.
