The rumors that many have long believed are true: Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC were behind the infamous dossier alleging Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. This is all according to a brand new Washington Post report.
Washington Post’s report indicates lawyer Marc E. Elias represented Clinton’s campaign and the DNC. Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie, acquired the firm Fusion GPS in April 2016 to investigate any connections between Trump and Russia.
Before Elias acquired Fusion GPS, an unknown Republican client gave money to help fund Fusion GPS’ research during the Republican primaries. British intelligence officer Christopher Steele was hired by Fusion GPS to conduct all related research to see if Donald Trump had deep Russian ties.
It was brought forth by the Washington Post’s article that both the DNC and Clinton campaign continued to fund research of Fusion GPS until right before the 2016 Election. For months, the DNC and Clinton’s team denied connection to Fusion GPS. That appears to be clearly proven wrong.
There is no clear number on how much money the DNC and Clinton Camp paid for research as it was indirectly paid to Fusion GPS through Elias’s law firm Perkins Coie, which also helped finance Fusion GPS.
According to campaign records obtained by Washington Post, Clinton’s Camp & DNC paid a combined $9.2 million in legal fees from June 2015 to December 2016 to Elias’s firm. But, of course, now the question is “How much of that $9.2 million went to funding Fusion GPS for the dossier that BuzzFeed published earlier this year.
It’s bitter-sweet that more truth has come to light. Bitter because for months we had to hear mainstream news sources continually push the Russia, Russia, Russia narrative that was all funded by the Hillary Camp and DNC. Many Trump supporters had the gut feeling Clinton was behind it, and it’s sweet because, once again, she has been found out and she was involved after all. This is yet another scandal that will plague the integrity of the Clinton Machine.
