Shock: Clinton Campaign, DNC Paid For Research That Became the PeePeeParty Dossier

Fusion's fighting a congressional subpoena to avoid disclosing who paid for this, and now Fusion releases this?

This is about the second client -- who is now revealed to be Clinton and the DNC, which they've long denied, but which we've long suspected.

Meanwhile, Fusion is in court trying to defeat a congressional subpeona to find out who both of the clients paying them for this were.

The second client we now know.

But the first remains hidden -- and if Fusion prevails in court, it will remain hidden.


The DNC's lawyer released Fusion from its confidentially agreement to reveal this -- but this doesn't answer who the original client was. Which is precisely what Fusion is fighting in court to continue to conceal.

What is it about the first client that's so important that Fusion and the DNC are willing to throw the DNC and Hillary Clinton under the bus to protect?

Maybe that's the entire point -- to get the judge to say "Well you know one of the clients, so I'm ruling that Fusion can continue defying the subpoena to reveal the first client."

Story appears in the DNC's house organ, the Washington Post.

Someone really doesn't want Fusion to be compelled to open up its books and client list.

he Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about Donald Trumpís 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 the people.

Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the firm in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Prior to that agreement, Fusion GPS's research into Trump was funded by a still unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.

Note that we only have anonymous leaks claiming that last bit -- that an unknown Republican originally paid for it.

But someone wishing to obscure the actual client would, of course, put out that kind of disinformation, anonymously.

Interesting that the National Laughingstock claims this as some kind of verified fact, when the whole point of the congressional subpeona is to find out if this anonymously sourced claim is actually true, or just a cover story.

Modified limited hang-out is what we called it during the Nixon and Clinton days.

Get Ready For Another Reality-Warping Mindshock:


BTW, she's a NYT reporter, coming there from Politico. And even she seems a bit astonished at the lying from Clinton and the DNC.

Again, I'm sorry to have to suggest this blasphemy against the solidity of your psychic reality, but Hillary Clinton might not always be entirely truthful with you.

Namaste. Cat/Cow. Child's pose. Fluffy pillows, fuzzy slippers and dozing kittens.

More: It begins to look like a Clinton-funded hatchet job formed the entire basis of the later DOJ/FBI probe accusing Trump of precisely what Clinton paid someone to accuse Trump of.

Yeah, I'm having a hell of a day. I posted this 37 minutes ago... in the sidebar.

I'm smart.
