JUST IN: Fake Trump-Russia 'Dossier' Was Funded by Clinton Campaign and DNC
Remember when everyone was losing their crap over a report "proving" Trump's connections to Russia? Remember how it all turned out to be fake (see THUG LIFE: Donald Trump Body Slams BuzzFeed, CNN For Fake Russian 'Report')? Apparently the Clinton campaign and DNC played a huge part in that. Shocker. Here's the scoop:
The controversial dossier containing salacious allegations about President Donald Trump and his possible connections to Russia, including coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, resulted from funding by Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee to the firm Fusion GPS, a source familiar with the situation confirmed to Fox News.
Fusion GPS was retained by Marc E. Elias, an attorney representing the DNC and the Clinton campaign. Fusion GPS then reportedly hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to write the now-infamous dossier.
Prior to the firm being retained in April 2016 ... Fusion GPS's research had been subsidized by an unidentified Republican during the GOP primary.
But the Clinton campaign - and the DNC - saw the research through, funding the firm through the end of October 2016, just days before Trump defeated Clinton in the general election.
Following Trump's victory, the FBI arranged to pay Steele to proceed with intelligence gathering about both Trump and Russia. That deal was later nixed after the former intelligence officer was identified in news reports.
Perkins Coie was paid $5.6 million in legal fees by the Clinton campaign in a time period from June 2015 to December 2016. The DNC also paid the firm $3.6 million for "legal and compliance consulting" going back to November 2015.
Sourced told The Post that neither the Clinton campaign or the DNC specifically directed Steele's work, labeling the intelligence officer simply as a Fusion GPS subcontractor.
That was a lot of wordage. But the gist of it? Hillary's flying monkeys and the DNC both had a major role to play in the dossier. Notice the part where the source says the DNC and Clinton campaign didn't specifically direct Steele's work? Yeah. Sounds a lot like they made sure to maintain some deniability in case the fit hit the shan. Which it did.
This is a big deal for obvious reasons. Hillary's power hungry, wrinkled reach has known no bounds. Unchecked, she's managed to orchestrate truckloads of corruption right before our very eyes. #HistoryMade?
