A report by parliament’s intelligence and safety committee into alleged Russian interference in United kingdom politics was meant to be printed at the conclusion of previous year. But as Boris Johnson determined to contact a snap election, he withheld the report promising to publish it ‘in because of course’.
Now, 6 months later, the committee has been in hiatus and the report is continue to collecting dust. But the Guardian’s Luke Harding (author of a new e-book Shadow State) has been piecing with each other evidence seen by MPs in the planning of the report. He tells Rachel Humphreys that witness testimony from the previous MI6 agent Christopher Steele would make unpleasant examining for the governing administration.
