Christopher Steele stated that he cannot verify the documents released against Trump. According to a report by the Independent.co.uk website, they are not proven or disproven. In a court of law, a case like this gets thrown out. Yet, the allegations never fully disappear. Some say that the records released came out to do just that: to smear the Trump administration.

Christopher Steele, a former British intel agent, says the documents can’t be proven. Steele, 52, now heads a private intel firm called Orbis and comes out of London. According to Independent News, the documents created by Mr. Steele came from Trump opposition.
