Former President Obama's secretary of state John Kerry may be in trouble after 16 pages of documents released by The Daily Caller News Foundation and Judicial Watch revealed senior State Obama officials – Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer – coordinated with incoming House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer’s (D-MD) national security advisor, Daniel Silverberg, to work on Russia dossier information provided by Christopher Steele.

Steele was paid by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to create the now-infamous anti-Trump dossier used to justify a series of FISA spy warrants targeting Carter Page. Winer is a former Obama State Department deputy assistant secretary who was implicated in working with Steele and Clinton associate Sidney Blumenthal to circulate the anti-Trump dossier.

Judicial Watch obtained these documents via a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed in April 2018 on behalf of Breitbart and The Daily Caller News Foundation against the State Department after it failed to accomodate three separate FOIA requests.
