(NewsReady.com) – The Steele Dossier is one of the most controversial reports of our time. It was written by ex-British spy Christopher Steele and much of it has been debunked in the last three years. Unfortunately, it did lead to a long, far-reaching investigation into President Donald Trump.
The commander-in-chief has always maintained the dossier was full of fake news and he’s not alone. Now, the author of the material is being forced to pay.
A British court ordered Steele to pay 18,000 English pounds (about $23,000) each to 2 Alfa Bank partners. The court found the ex-spy published “inaccurate or misleading” material in the dossier. His actions caused the “loss of autonomy, distress and reputational damage” to Mikhail Fridman and Petr Aven.

The Steele Dossier made wild allegations and it’s great to see a court pushing back. The damages may seem small, but the implications are not. Will this ruling lead to further cases regarding the report? Only time will tell.
