At least four separate coincidences have emerged as the public learns more information about the unverified Steele dossier and how it was crafted.
The origin story of the 35-page document was pretty simple at the outset. Fusion GPS, which was investigating then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, hired former British spy Christopher Steele to write the dossier.
But as more details about the dossier trickle out into the public forum, connections have surfaced that raise questions about how information made its way into the salacious document.
Here are the four most significant “coincidences.”
The first coincidence to emerge from the dossier involved the June 9, 2016, meeting held at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and a group of Russians.
Two of the Russians in the meeting — Natalia Veselnitskaya and Rinat Akhmetshin — happened to be working at the time of that meeting with Glenn Simpson, the founder of the opposition research firm that commissioned the dossier.
