NEW: In a court deposition, Christopher Steele says he didn't realize CNN iReport was a user-generated site with stories that aren't edited, fact-checked, or screened, despite using an article he found there to verify some allegations in the Trump Dossier.https://t.co/tTOJNrNlA7

And this is what they used to get warrants and spy.
We’ve known the Christopher Steele dossier was bogus from the beginning; the question is, how extensively was it used to open an investigation into the Trump campaign?
Jerry Dunleavy reported at The Washington Examiner Friday that according to deposition transcripts released this week, Steele allegedly backed up parts of his dossier not from CNN reports but from posts on CNN’s iReport website, to which anyone could post their views, with CNN noting the user-generated stories were “not edited, fact-checked, or screened.” In other words, Steele used user comments as evidence.
