Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund the research that resulted in the so-called “Trump dossier” that contained scandalous material tying President Trump to Russia, according to a report Tuesday.

Fusion GPS, a Washington opposition research firm, was hired by the Clinton campaign and DNC lawyer Mark Elias to oversee the research, the Washington Post reported citing unnamed sources. Fusion GPS then hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who wrote the dossier.

Elias and Perkins Coie, his law firm, hired Fusion GPS in April 2016 to do research for the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Fusion GPS had already been conducting research on Trump during the Republican primaries, funded by an unknown Republican client.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC financed Fusion GPS’s research up until just days before the Nov. 8 election.

    Why was all the clinton contacts with the Russians and what was “given” to Russia on the pay for play account never mentioned or made the news. Could be the clintons have too much power over the news media who are afraid of becoming a casualty.

      If it was pay to play then the Russians got ripped off.

    Opposition research resulting in the Trump dossier is not collusion with the Russians to get Trump elected. Don’t get that impression from continued and irrelevant renewal of Clinton investigation in congress, actions designed to distract public attention from the Mueller study of Trump wrongdoing and treasonous behavior to get elected and run his office. Like Benghazi before this, zealots in congress are picking up the cudgel again to beat on Hillary when the object should be to beat on Trump. Due to intelligence secrecy, the full story may not be given to the entire American voting public, but that shouldn’t diminish the investigators’ works to find Russian links and intrusion into our 2016 elections and Trump affiliates’ ties to Russian mafia.
    The outlines of treason leading to Trump impeachment and removal from office are apparent to me, if not the general apathetic and detached public. But I keep a clear eye on the differences and recognize politics separate from cybersecurity and constitutional violations.

    Fusion GPS was hired to do research by a political candidate and sub contracted the job. They were paid. Now I must be missing something here. Just why is there a news story here. It’s not like the went to the Russian government for dirt.

      No, they went to a company with a history of doing hit research on people. They did a hit research on a journalists for a South American government that showed him to be a child molester and sex offender, neither of which were true. Funny how you are all over the Trump Campaign for meeting with a foreign source (“the Russians”) to garner opposition research which, if they actually got anything, was NEVER USED but not over the Clinton Campaign and the DNC going to a foreign source to get opposition research THEY USED. Hypocritical much?

        Fusion GPS is a US based company. Unlike Trump & Company there was no meeting with Russians looking for dirt.
