WaPo: Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier

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

Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community.

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.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC through the law firm continued to fund Fusion GPS’s research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.

I wish that “people familiar with the matter” would just say who they are.

If true this helps explain why the DNC didn't accept any help from DHS when it came to their servers being compromised.

Trust it only as far as you deem appropriate. We know WaPo's been full of shit on more than one occasion, when it comes to matters Trump.

This has been known for a long time, no? It was then taken over by anti-Trump GOP folks. Or did I get that backwards?

False flag to distract you from the fact that Hillary has about 3 five year old's slow smoking on her Weber right now.

Look it up and stop acting like a lazy European expecting others to do your work for you.

I don’t doubt it, it just seems like every trump story has an anonymous source.

Ah, here we go:

In this case, the request for opposition research on Donald Trump came from one of his Republican opponents in the primary campaign. The research firm then hired one of its sub-contractors who it used regularly on all things Russian: a retired western European former counter-intelligence official, with a long history of dealing with the shadow world of Moscow’s spooks and siloviki (securocrats).

By the time the contractor had started his research, however, the Republican primary was over. The original client had dropped out, but the firm that had hired him had found a new, Democratic client. This was not necessarily the Hillary Clinton campaign or the Democratic National Committee. Opposition research is frequently financed by wealthy individuals who have donated all they can and are looking for other ways to help.

We'd expect this from either side, whether the story were true or not. Lawyer comment:

Not really, the Clinton campaign lied about funding it:

Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias “vigorously” denied his involvement in the anti-Trump dossier that has made up the substance of the Russian collusion allegations, New York Times reporter Ken Vogel said.

Elias’ denial appears to have been intentionally misleading in light of new reporting from The Washington Post that Elias hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Elias reportedly hired Fusion to dig up dirt on Trump as part of a project that became the Trump dossier. (RELATED: Clinton Campaign And DNC Funded Trump Dossier)

“When I tried to report this story,” Vogel said of the Post report, “Clinton campaign lawyer [Marc Elias] pushed back vigorously, saying ‘You (or your sources) are wrong.'”

Another NYT reporter, Maggie Haberman, similarly accused Democrats of sanctimoniously lying about their funding of the Trump dossier.

“Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year,” Haberman wrote on Twitter, linking to the Post’s report.
