Free Beacon Oct 24th Article on the Steele dossier's DEM funding , B4 admitting they funded too. Hmm







Clinton Campaign, DNC Paid for Research Behind Russia Dossier

Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in the famous Steele dossier, which posited that connections exist between President Donald Trump and Russia.

Sources cited in the Washington Post story did not disclose dollar amounts paid to the firm that conducted the research, but they said Clinton's campaign and the DNC shared the cost.

That firm, Fusion GPS, hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

Marc E. Elias is a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign as well as the DNC, and made the decision to work with Fusion GPS in April 2016. At that point was funded by an unknown GOP client while the primary was still going on.

Steele gave reports and other documents to Elias, but one source claimed that he or she was not aware of the role of Steele's work.

The people aware of the matter claimed that the Clinton campaign didn't direct Steele's research.

3. Why a lawyer might be involved

Imagine knowing there is negative research on trump out there. So they hired an attorney to find it (he did) and decide the legal consequences of using it.
