What is this State official doing in the middle of the Steele dossier investigation

The Christopher Steele dossier investigation now turns toward this State official. What was State Department’s  Jonathan Winer, the special envoy to Libya doing involved with Hillary Clinton cronies and the Russian dossier?  House Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes has refocused his group to take a long look at the State Department about this.

As Written and Reported By Ed Morrissey for Hot Air:

Earlier this week, House Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes told people that he would shift his focus in the handling of the Russia-collusion probe from the FBI to the State Department. The issue at hand, Byron York reported last month, was a possible conduit between Christopher Steele and his work on the Donald Trump dossier and other Obama administration officials outside of normal counterintelligence channels:

But it appears some investigators are looking beyond the 35 pages of reports done by Steele for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm working for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, that were published in January 2017 by BuzzFeed. They’re looking into whether Steele did other reports about Trump, perhaps similar but not identical to what was in the dossier published by BuzzFeed. And they are looking into whether those reports made their way to the State Department. They’re also seeking to learn what individual State Department officials did in relation to Steele, and whether there were any contacts between the State Department and the FBI or Justice Department concerning the anti-Trump material.
