Global Geopolitical Series: Did UK government meddle in U.S. 2016 election against Trump?

After almost two years of investigation into collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, it is now looking like that it could be the United Kingdom, which might have meddled in the 2016 election to prevent Donald Trump from becoming the President.

  • After two years of investigation, special counsel Robert Mueller found no collusion between Trump campaign and Russia and it is coming out from other sets of investigations that it was actually the U.S. top officials at U.S. spy and intelligence agencies were colluding and conspiring to prevent Donald Trump from becoming the President. And, it is those officials who actually perpetrated and promoted the Russia collusion theory as an insurance policy against Donald Trump to get him out of office should he win the election. The intelligence agencies not only tried to infiltrate the campaign using under over agents, but several setup attempts were also made to lure people within the campaign with Russian originated dirt on Hillary Clinton.
     
  • Now, Attorney General William Barr is looking at the origin of that investigation and so far the roads lead to the United Kingdom. One of the key elements of the Collusion theory was the infamous and now debunked ‘Steele Dossier’, written by Christopher Steele, who is a former employee of the UK intelligence agency. Now, the questions that are being asked whether the UK government or intelligence agencies played part in it. Mr. Steele was hired by the company named Fusion GPS, which in turn was hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign to find dirt on candidate Donald Trump.
     
  • Devin Nunes, a ranking member of House Intelligence Committee has reportedly sent a letter to President Trump urging him to ask Prime Minister Theresa May whether British officials supported intelligence-gathering activities targeted at Trump campaign associates or coordinated in any way with the author of the unverified ‘Steel dossier’. President Trump is due for a state visit in the UK in June.
