Everyone remembers the infamous peeing prostitutes lie of a “dossier” on Trump.
Well, no real surprise (the surprise is that they’ve been caught out…); turns out it was paid for by the Clinton Campaign…
Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier

The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.
Marc E. 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, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the company in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by an 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.
Yet Another part of the whole “Russia Did It!!!” lie by the DNC / Clintons comes home to roost.
Seems like everywhere you look, the slime and dirt leads back to one of two sources. The DNC / Clinton Cabal, or Soros. Soros in a war with Russia no doubt pushed the “Russia Did It!!” agenda, but the Clintons funded it and ran with it (and lost).
FWIW, I first saw this story on RT, then did a web search that showed lots of other sources:
Well, at least now the likes of CNN have to admit their ilk are uck. Though they are still spinning it like crazy:
Brian Fallon, the Clinton campaign’s national press secretary and now a CNN political contributor, tweeted Tuesday that he wasn’t aware of the connection between the campaign and the dossier authored by Steele, but “if I had, I would have volunteered to go to Europe and try to help him.”
“I have no idea what Fusion or Steele were paid but if even a shred of that dossier ends up helping (Justice Department special counsel Robert) Mueller, it will prove money well spent,” he tweeted.
DNC communications director Xochitl Hinojosa said in a statement Tuesday: “Tom Perez and the new leadership of the DNC were not involved in any decision-making regarding Fusion GPS, nor were they aware that Perkins Coie was working with the organization. But let’s be clear, there is a serious federal investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, and the American public deserves to know what happened.”
Yeah, right, hoping a steaming pile of shit lies is “helping”…
Oh well, at least they acknowledged the story exists…
