The New York Times reports:
“Officials from the Clinton campaign and the D.N.C. have said they were unaware that Perkins Coie facilitated the research on their behalf, even though the law firm was using their money to pay for it. Even Mrs. Clinton only found about Mr. Steele’s research after Buzzfeed published the dossier, according to two associates who discussed the matter with her. They said that she was disappointed that the research — as well as the fact that the F.B.I. was looking into connections between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia — was not made public before Election Day.
But word of the memos and their contents had circulated in Washington political and media circles before the election. In British court filings, Mr. Steele’s lawyers said that he and Fusion GPS briefed journalists from a range of media outlets, including The New York Times, on his research starting in September of 2016.
Yet the research and even the existence of the dossier were not reported by the media, with the exception of Mother Jones magazine, which published a story in the days before the election that described the dossier, its origin and significance, while omitting the salacious claims.”
Hillary Clinton is claiming she was not aware of Trump dossier research until after BuzzFeed published it after the election, even though her campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) paid for it, according to the New York Times.
It is unclear what is more amusing…the fact that Hillary Clinton thinks that the media failed for not reporting the fake dossier or Mother Jones actually reporting on it. Let us know what you think. Drop a comment below!
