For over a year, Democrats pushed for an investigation into the affairs of President Trump’s campaign in connection to any Russian ties.
The special counsel investigation was triggered by one key event- the leak of a “dossier”; its origin was previously unknown.
But now, a new story is coming to light with the authors known—and the truth may not surprise you.
Information just leaked featuring Hillary Clinton and the DNC as the real conspirators behind the infamous Russian dossier.
The Washington Post first reported this new information.
In their report, they revealed that a treacherous Republican first contacted Fusion GPS, the firm behind the compilation of the dossier.
Clinton and the DNC later continued the work of that Republican.
Breitbart News reported:
A Republican had contracted first with Fusion GPS, and Clinton and the DNC continued to fund Fusion GPS’s work, the report says.
According to the Post:
Mark Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research.
After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community …
Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by a still unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.
The Clinton campaign and the DNC, through the law firm, continued to fund Fusion GPS’s research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.
The “Russian dossier,” whose contents Trump has denied and which has been widely discredited, is believed to have led the FBI to investigate the Trump campaign and several Trump associates.
Until now, Fusion GPS has continued to refuse to cooperate with congressional panels investigating Russian attempts to intervene in the election, and how the Obama administration probed those efforts. Democrats have also protected the company.
It is unsurprising that Hillary Clinton and the DNC we’re behind the dossier, as the investigation into President Trump’s campaign affairs dominated the media for months and gained his team bad publicity.
Hillary Clinton’s involvement is of special concern after news broke of another major scandal this week she is buried in.
The revelation that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee were involved in procuring the salacious accusations against Trump that fed their own later accusations of Russian interference in the election lends credence to those who, like Trump himself, have regarded the Russia accusations as conspiracy theories.
Last week, Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Street Journal observed:
The Washington narrative is focused on special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. But the ferocious pushback and unseemly tactics from Democrats suggest they are growing worried. Maybe the real story is that Democrats worked with an opposition-research firm that has some alarming ties to Russia and potentially facilitated a disinformation campaign during a presidential election.
On the heels of revelations that the FBI was investigating Russian attempts to influence Hillary Clinton to approve a controversial uranium deal, Democrats will have more questions to answer about possible collusion with Russia. The FBI, too, will face additional scrutiny from Congress — especially as it agreed to pay Steele after the election for additional research into Trump’s potential Russia ties.
