Obama's Campaign Paid Nearly a Million Dollars to Law Firm that Was Secretly Funding FusionGPS

So the sitting president's campaign was funding the pass-through law firm paying for oppo dirt which would later serve as the basis for that president's administration getting a FISA wiretap warrant on the opposite party candidate, and then sparking a special counsel investigation.

As with the Hillary campaign's and the DNC's payments, these payments were claimed to be for "legal services" in official, mandatory FEC filings.

OFA, Obama’s official campaign arm in 2016, paid nearly $800,000 to Perkins Coie in 2016 alone, according to FEC records. The first 2016 payments to Perkins Coie, classified only as “Legal Services,” were made April 25-26, 2016, and totaled $98,047. A second batch of payments, also classified as "Legal Services," were disbursed to the law firm on September 29, 2016, and totaled exactly $700,000. Payments from OFA to Perkins Coie in 2017 totaled $174,725 through August 22, 2017.
