Most Americans have suspected for a while that Hillary, and her epic assortment of excuses for losing in 2016, were behind the Trump-Russia “investigation.”
Now, finally, we have absolute proof!
According to a bombshell report in Tuesday’s Washington Post, Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid Fusion GPS to research and write the “Russian dossier” on then-candidate Donald Trump.
The dossier’s so-called findings (mostly rumors and conjecture) have since triggered an FBI investigation into “collusion” between Trump’s campaign and the Russian government.

A lawyer representing Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, as well as the Democratic National Committee (DNC), helped fund research for the controversial dossier about President Trump’s alleged connections to Russia, according to a new report.
The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Marc Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS in April 2016 to continue investigating Trump’s background. Before that, a still unknown Republican donor funded the firm.
Fusion GPS is a private research firm co-founded by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson in 2011. In the past, the firm has conducted opposition research on Republicans including Mitt Romney during his 2012 presidential bid.
The Clinton campaign and the DNC funded the firm’s efforts through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day, according to The Washington Post.
Sources told the newspaper that Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI, after Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie retained Fusion GPS to conduct research on Trump.
The DNC issued a statement Tuesday evening distancing its current leadership from the private research firm.
“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,” DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa said. “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.”
The dossier created by Fusion GPS contains salacious and unverified allegations against Trump. The 35-page document reportedly circulated around Washington for months before it was published in its entirety by BuzzFeed in January.
Steele was reportedly interviewed about the dossier over the summer by special counsel Robert Mueller as part of the federal investigation into ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia during last year’s election.
