ABC Hello america Co-host George Stephanopoulos is trying to breathe new life into the ‘pee dossier’ hoax as he launches his new production company ABC News with a Hulu documentary about former British spy Christopher Steele.
George Stephanopoulos, who served as White House spokesman for Bill Clinton, announced his production company during GMA ‘s airs on Thursdays. George Stephanopoulos Productions will create content for ABC, Disney +, National Geographic and FX, all of which are owned by Walt Disney Co.
by Hulu Out of the shadows, which begins airing on Monday, will feature Christopher Steele, who was behind the notorious case that helped spur the hoax of collusion with Russia against President Donald Trump. The file contained salacious allegations against Trump, including the claim that prostitutes were paid to urinate on the germaphobic businessman-turned-politician at the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow.
Buzzfeed News aired the dossier even though its claims were unverified, leading Trump to call the left-wing site a “failing garbage heap.” Other mainstream media, including CNN, followed suit, publishing the allegations in an apparent attempt to smear Trump.
The documentary features what would be Steele’s first interview since the dossier was released in 2016.

His GMA co-host Robin Roberts has a similar production deal – Rock’n Robin Productions, which produces shows for ABC, ESPN, Disney + and other outlets.
