Christopher Steele memo claims Russia stopped Trump from appointing Romney as secretary of state

Russia believed it effectively blocked former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney from being President Donald Trump’s choice for secretary of state, according to an unpublished memo penned by the same author of the Trump-Russia dossier.

Former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele reportedly wrote a separate memo in November 2016 that cited a “senior Russian official” who claimed the Kremlin believed it had managed to influence Trump to favor a more Russia-friendly choice who could help lift sanctions over the Ukraine crisis, according to a Monday report from The New Yorker.

The report goes on to suggest that Steele may have discussed the unreleased memo with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

Steele’s other memo, unlike the 35-page dossier published in January of last year and denounced by Trump and a number of Republicans, cited a single source. Yet its content was still startling. It claimed that Russia had somehow reached Trump and asked for a secretary of state who could possibly alleviate sanctions put in place for its annexation of Crimea and work with Russia on security concerns.

Romney said last year that Trump's defeated opponent Hillary Clinton had encouraged him to go for the position. After much speculation and even a dinner together at Trump Tower, Trump did not offer Romney the spot, instead opting for former ExxonMobil chief Rex Tillerson, who has a longstanding relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

I'm not going to bother reading it because the troll thread title says all anyone needs to know.
