Well, well well of all places who would’ve thought the Washington Post would be the one to throw Clinton and the DNC under the bus!
In a nutshell, the Russians supplied fmr British intel officer Christopher Steele, who worked in Russia, with information. He fed the info to Fusion GPS, who was retained by Clinton and DNC attorney Marc Elias. This is the same Alias who denied dossier funding!
This just goes to show to how far Clinton and the DNC would go to take Trump out. They created this mess that the crap media has run with for well over a year hoping to remove Trump from office. One thing is clear, the Russia, Russia, Russia collusion conspiracy with regards to Trump-Russia is over. The real story/ case of collusion is just starting for Clinton, DNC, the SHIT PILE media and the rest of the rats on the Left.
The question we all need to be asking is whether Attorney General Jeff Sessions will come out of the corner, man up, tell everyone to shove it on his recusal and start investigating these SOB’s. If not Donald Trump needs to fire Sessions asap.
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 firm in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by a still 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.
Fusion GPS gave Steele’s reports and other research documents to Elias, the people familiar with the matter said. It is unclear how or how much of that information was shared with the campaign and DNC, and who in those organizations was aware of the roles of Fusion GPS and Steele. One person close to the matter said the campaign and the DNC were not informed of Fusion GPS’s role by the law firm.
The dossier has become a lightning rod amid the intensifying investigations into the Trump campaign’s possible connections to Russia. Some congressional Republican leaders have spent months trying to discredit Fusion GPS and Steele, and tried to determine the identity of the Democrat or organization that paid for it…more
