The FBI possesses and is reviewing a second dossier on President Donald Trump, this one authored by a former political operative for the Clintons, The Guardian is reporting.
The second dossier, written by Cody Shearer, was given to the FBI in October by former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the first — and still unverified — Trump dossier, The Guardian reports.
Steele, who was given the second dossier by a contact of his, gave it to the FBI as a means of corroborating his dossier, The Guardian reports.
However, Steele did not vouch for the veracity of Shearer's work, The Guardian reports.
The "Shearer memo" does have reporting that mirrors Steele's document, The Guardian reports.
Shearer is the son of former gossip columnist Lloyd Shearer and brother of Derek Shearer, the former ambassador to Finland under Bill Clinton.
Derek Shearer reportedly lobbied for the role, telling the Clintons he was owed a "political debt," in part because of the work Cody Shearer did on behalf of Clinton while she was secretary of state.
