It was only a matter of time before the truth came out regarding the dirty Trump dossier. And imagine that, it links straight back to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee. As it turns out, both Clinton’s campaign and the DNC, paid the questionable Fusion GPS research firm.

Marc Elias, a lawyer representing Hillary’s presidential campaign, hired Fusion to conduct the research for the dossier. Fusion subsequently retained ex-British Intelligence Officer, Christopher Steele, to author the report. Elias’ law firm, Perkins Cole, began working with Fusion in April of 2016 according to the Washington Post.

Before the agreement was reached between Fusion GPS and the Clinton campaign, a Republican primary candidate was paying for the research. However, Clinton and the DNC continued to fund the now infamous and unsubstantiated report until days before the 2016 election.

The salacious dossier is now the focal point of several controversies.  The newest of which involves the Obama administration. Congress is now investigating allegations that the DOJ and FBI utilized the unverified claims in the dossier to spy on then-candidate Trump and his associates.

House and Senate leaders are suggesting that the dossier was illegally presented to the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA), to obtain surveillance warrants. The administration uses the warrants to wiretap Trump campaign officials to look for evidence of Russian influence.

Special Prosecutor, Robert Mueller, is also reportedly using the dossier as part of his Russian collusion investigation. However, after months of innuendo, Democrats have yet to offer any proof that Trump or his associates did collude with Russia. But, there is evidence that the entire plan is a just a way for liberals to smear the president.

False Narratives

In August, a leaked phone call from award-winning journalist Seymour Hersh reveals new details about missing DNC emails. Hersh offers insider information he obtained from his contacts at the FBI and D.C. Police Department that confirms the emails were part of a hacking scheme.

Allegedly, it was Seth Rich who gave the emails to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Nevertheless, this new information proves that President Trump has been right all along. Recently, he sent out a tweet urging the FBI and Justice Department to release who paid for the dossier. Curiously, both Elias and Fusion GPS are refusing to comment on their involvement. Spokespersons for the DNC and Clinton campaign also declined to respond.
