It was that famous “Steele dossier,” an assembly of fictional narratives making wild claims about then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, that created so much trouble for America.

Democrats used it for years to try to undermine Trump’s presidency, and taxpayers paid tens of millions of dollars for an investigation that documented its claims were not true.

Even the author, an ex-British intel agent named Christopher Steele, couldn’t provide verification of his claims even when he was offered $1 million to do so.

Now it’s coming back on him.

President Trump has sued him for the vast damages it caused.

A report at the Post-Millennial explained Trump has sued Steele and the company Steele founded, Orbis Business Intelligence, charging that Steele violated the United Kingdom’s data protection law, when the now-discredited compilation was leaked to Buzzfeed around the 2016 election.

Among the claims included were that Russia had compromising material on Trump and that Vladimir Putin had “supported and directed” a campaign to “cultivate” Trump as a candidate for the Republican Party.

The Guardian reported a two-day hearing is set to begin Oct. 16 on the case, and Trump is not expected to attend in person.

Steele assembled the stories in the dossier for Fusion GPS, which was being funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and other Democrats.

The Durham Report, the result of a years-long investigation by special counsel John Durham, found that FBI agents failed to do any reasonable investigation into the allegations, and it concluded that there was no evidence of collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

He wrote, “Our investigators determined that the Crossfire Hurricane investigators did not and could not corroborate any of the substantive allegations contained in the Steele reporting. Not was Steele able to produce corroboration for any of the reported allegations, even after being offered $1 million or more by the FBI for such corroboration.”

The National Pulse reported on the dispute that the CIA originally viewed Steele’s unsubstantiated claims as “Internet rumor.”

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Believe it or not, today’s high priests of climate-change apocalypse are correct in predicting that in just a few short years, the earth will become miserable, wretched and almost uninhabitable by human beings. But the grim future they envision won’t come about because of “catastrophic climate change,” but rather, because of the implementation of their completely insane and truly catastrophic agenda.

As Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore recently admitted, “If they actually achieve Net Zero, at least 50% of the population would die of hunger and disease.” Likewise, writes energy expert and author Alex Epstein: “Today’s proposed policies to rapidly eliminate fossil fuel use would, if fully implemented, have truly apocalyptic consequences – making the world an impoverished, dangerous, and miserable place for most people.”

Question: When the scientific case for global warming apocalypse consists primarily of a 1-degree Celsius rise in temperature over more than 130 years, what explains the obsession with an imminent, climate-caused end of the world?

Although many groups have been drawn into the Climate Change Cult – from the news media (which has warned of climate catastrophe, either global warming or a “new ice age,” for over a century!), to innocent school kids indoctrinated by hysterical leftist teachers, to liberal Democrats who claim “climate change” will destroy the earth in a few years – the REAL villains are the national and global elites who KNOW the apocalyptic global warming religion is just a cruel hoax, but promote and exploit it as a means of accomplishing their ultimate goal: Transforming and ruling the world.

The heart and soul of today’s bizarre, pagan climate-change religion, and the global elites’ strategies for using it to rule all of mankind, is powerfully exposed and illuminated in the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, an issue titled “CULT OF THE CLIMATE APOCALYPSE: The elites’ breathtaking strategy for ruling the world.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
