Just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any worse for the Democrats, solid evidence has now emerged in the scandal involving the Trump “dossier,” and it appears to connect the dots between Hillary Clinton and the DNC to a Russian-sourced document that is believed to be mostly fabricated.
According to a report from The Daily Caller, a federal court unsealed financial records under a court order which reveal that payments of more than a million dollars were made by Democrats to Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that helped produce the dossier.
Per the report:
“The records were unsealed in response to a ruling made last week by Richard Leon, a federal judge in the district court in Washington, D.C.
The bank documents list 112 transactions involving Fusion GPS.
Most are redacted, save for transactions between two law firms that the oppo firm worked with last year on two Russia-related projects.
Perkins Coie, the law firm that represented the Clinton campaign and DNC, paid Fusion a total of $1,024,408 between May 24, 2016 and Dec. 28, 2016, the records show.”
While the financial records clearly show that Democrats were paying Fusion GPS a significant amount of money, one payment in particular, which was made in late-December, occurred much later than expected.
“The transaction list does not show payments that Fusion made to Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the dossier. The firm reportedly paid Steele a total of $168,000 for his work, which lasted from June 2016 until the election.”
For the most part, the founders of Fusion GPS have been mum in regards to answering questions as to where the documents came from and who paid to have them made, but it appears we now have those answers. If the financial ledger is accurate, payments into their pockets from the Democrats is most likely what they were trying to conceal.
Just let that sink in for a moment. Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid a research firm to essentially fabricate documents about Donald Trump, and then tried to use that made up information against him in order to justify spying on the opposition candidate during an American election.
