Friendly fire, inbound.
The Washington Post was given the rights to publish this rather groundbreaking (to those paying attention) story about the genesis of a trail of Democratic corruption that was enacted upon the success of Donald Trump’s ascent to the Oval Office. I say “rights” because the WP is ground zero when it comes to being the receptacle of harmful (to the Left) news reporting which the Left enacts as a means of “getting in front of the ball” in offensive damage control. Under the guise of “neutral” news coverage.
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.
A shadowy group of RINO’s embarked on an anti-Trump crusade a couple of years ago. They built a franchise which the DNC and HIllary then purchased some time later. They assumed full operational control and hired a charlatan Brit spy who wrote a largely fictional “dossier” oozing with narratives of golden showers and the like. The dossier has been largely discredited, but it doesn’t end here.
The dossier was a convenient ploy which Obama’s justice department usurped for its malevolent deeds when no one was looking.
Both the House and the Senate are investigating whether the former President Barack Obama’s administration used intelligence in a salacious “Trump Dossier” as “evidence” before a secret federal surveillance court to obtain permission to spy on Donald Trump campaign aides and later his transition team.
Leaders in Congress are trying to find out if the Obama Justice Department and the FBI introduced the totally unsubstantiated material alleging unsavory connections between Trump and Russia before the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court, congressional aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The FBI used the dossier to secure permission to monitor the communications of Trump associate Carter Page, based on U.S. officials briefed on the Russia investigation, CNN reported in April.
The latest inquiries began Oct. 4, when the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence subpoenaed Fusion GPS, a political opposition research firm based in Washington, D.C., to appear before the committee and turn over bank documents. The committee is also seeking all Justice Department applications before the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Court, also called the FISA court, to determine if any of the applicants rely on information from the dossier.
The bones all lead to one place: removal of President Trump from office, or at the very least, to proliferate a continual stream of discrediting, distractive narratives which weaken his Presidency.
