Clinton Funded Trump Dossier


Hillary Clinton‘s campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped bankroll research that led to the ‘golden showers’ dossier on Donald Trump.

Clinton’s campaign lawyer Marc Elias hired research firm Fusion GPS back in April 2016 to look into allegations of Trump’s ties to Russia, according to the Washington Post.

Fusion GPS, the Washington-based research firm, then hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to dig up the unconfirmed dirt on Trump.

Clinton’s lawyer and his law firm Perkins Coie continued to fund the research until October 2016 – just days before the presidential election.

The research was previously funded by an unknown anti-Trump Republican donor during the primary, but Clinton’s campaign then paid for it to be finished.

    So the elites, have been caught again.  Not much of a surprise that this morning is news that the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee claims he obtained a “smoking gun” email that proves the Obama Justice Department prevented settlement payouts from going to conservative-leaning organizations, even as liberal groups were awarded money and DOJ officials denied “picking and choosing” recipients.  Add to that the Uranium One scandal is not only, or even principally, a Clinton scandal. It is an Obama-administration scandal. Apparently $143,000,000 buys a lot of influence.

    So, as many have opined, the Obama administration is probably the most corrupt in the history of our democracy but I think it is more than just the leftist cabal.  Without the cooperation of the many bureaucrats pulling the levers of government, this would not have been possible.  The “swamp dwellers” are embedded in government no matter the political party in power enabling elites.

    One must acknowledge the impossibility of entirely draining the swamp but hopefully persons like Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, former-Associate Attorney General Tony West, or maybe even one of the elites will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Seeing your cohorts in prison stripes has never stopped the elites but that might give someone pause considering possible punishment for their actions.  It would be nice if Sen. Bob Menendez’s prosecution is just the tip of the iceberg.

    By the way, the FIRST person to pay for that “research” was a Republican, yet un-named.  That’s part of the story that hasn’t been mentioned.

    Out of the repubs running in the primary I would place a bet on Chris Christy being the financier.

    Mueller’s done.

    Too bad he and Francis Schmitz won’t share a cell together.

    I pray that a special prosecutor is appointed to look into the illegalities of these payments for opposition research.

    Score one for Pat.

    Do you pray the same thing for Hillary?

    Yup! Anything, and everything!

    As more information surfaces, the plot thickens.  Mueller, Comey, Holder, Lynch, Clinton, Schultz, Obama.  How high does this go?  Does anyone have the balls to actually say the ‘T’ word?  Treason.

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    Sure, bill.  What alleged information are you privy to the would trigger a conviction for treason?  Please share, use facts.

  11. Paul

    You’re not in a position to make demands.

    Some people just can’t read but it does make for a good laugh.

    Oddly, Republicans are silent about the neoconservatives that initially started the ball rolling with the dossier.
