The author of the dossier on the alleged compromising information of Russia regarding US President-elect Donald Trump had gathered data about corruption in FIFA. This was reported by Washington Post.

According to the publication, MI6 ex-spy Christopher Steele, who is the alleged author of the dossier on Donald Trump, is the chief of Orbis Business Intelligence, which had been hired in 2009 by England’s Football Association to investigate allegations of corruption by FIFA.

"The man behind the dossier is a former British spy, Christopher Steele, who is now a corporate intelligence consultant. In 2010, Steele helped deliver information about FIFA to the FBI that eventually led to indictments of many current and former officials of the soccer governing body, as well as the ouster of longtime FIFA president Sepp Blatter," newspaper reported.

Therefore, according to Washington Post, U.S. intelligence community believed that the source of the report was credible.
