Former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele furnished a second 'dossier' with intel on Donald Trump to the U.S. government even after publication of his infamous dossier memos and after Trump assumed office, according to a new report.
He continued to produce what the Daily Telegraph referring to as a 'second dossier,' which included 'information concerning alleged sexual exploits.'
The memos that made up Steele's original dossier contained allegations about Trump Russia ties as well as unverified information about his alleged conduct in in a Moscow hotel room during the Miss Universe Pageant in 2013.
Trump has repeatedly railed against the dossier, as well as former special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, which he calls a 'hoax.'

Former UK intelligence officer Christopher Steele arrives at the High Court in London on July 24, 2020. Steele continued to provide information to the government after the leak of his infamous dossier in January 2017, according to a report
Steele compiled the 35-page dossier between June and December, 2016. Buzzfeed published it in January of 2017, before Trump took office, and former FBI director James Comey briefed Trump on its existence at Trump Tower during the transition.
According to the Telegraph, Steele filed 'a series' of intelligence reports to the FBI during the Trump presidency – evan after the explosive disclosure of the existence of his initial reports.
He provided the 'raw intelligence' to U.S. federal authorities through his company, Orbis business Intelligence.
The unverified raw intelligence includes additional claims of Russian election interference and reportedly references claims about sex tapes, and is based on 'separate sources.'
According to delclassified information released by former Attorney General Bill Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham in September 2020, Steele's primary sub-source for the dossier 'was the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his/her documented contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers.'
According to his own memo of the incident, Comey told Trump about the dossier's 'unverified allegation that the Russians had compromising tapes of the president involving conduct when he was a private citizen during a 2013 trip to Moscow for the Miss Universe Pageant.'
Comey wrote that Trump said he was considering having the FBI investigate Steele's allegations to prove they were false.
