Hillary Clinton Claims She Didn’t Know She Was Paying For Dossier…

In the 48 hours since the Washington Post outlined the financial backing for the Christopher Steele “Russian Dossier” as the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC, the Democrat apparatus writ large has been trying to obfuscate and distance themselves from it. Yesterday Clinton campaign Spokesman Brian Fallon denied his knowledge of the campaign financing Fusion GPS for the commissioned dossier contract.

Today, in the latest laughable attempt at dodge-ball Hillary Clinton is now stating she didn’t know her campaign was paying for it:

(NYT) […] Officials from the Clinton campaign and the D.N.C. have said they were unaware that Perkins Coie facilitated the research on their behalf, even though the law firm was using their money to pay for it.

Even Mrs. Clinton only found about Mr. Steele’s research after Buzzfeed published the dossier, according to two associates who discussed the matter with her. They said that she was disappointed that the research — as well as the fact that the F.B.I. was looking into connections between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia — was not made public before Election Day.

The reason the financing of the dossier is ultimately so relevant is because it shreds the entire narrative that the Russians were trying to help candidate Donald Trump.

A strong, heck, even a moderate application of common sense would accept that the dossier was created to undermine candidate Trump, to the benefit of Hillary Clinton, and the publication of the generally refuted and debunked material post-election was only intended to undermine the presidency of Donald Trump.

To make the claim that the dossier was created to benefit Donald Trump is silly on its face.   Yet, somehow, laughably, that’s the position of the Clinton crew, and with a willing assist from a complicit media, the Clinton camp are ridiculously trying to stick to it.

However, as we initially discussed when the financial backers were revealed, the motive behind the Washington Post outline is becoming increasingly clear.  Assigning financial origination to the Clinton and DNC legal team is a way for Fusion GPS and likely the Obama administration intelligence community, to scurry away from their participation therein.

By presenting the Clinton/DNC lawyers “Perkins Coie” as the underwriting for the contracted authorship via Fusion GPS research, the Washington Post is attempting to put distance between Christopher Steele, dossier author, and the FBI and Obama intelligence community.  Unfortunately for the Washington Post, their history of publication specifically intended to protect the intelligence community only highlights the motive.

In an effort to further obfuscate the Clinton/DNC arrangement we note the current narrative is to cloud and merge the initial payments to Fusion GPS by a republican entity within the GOP primary.  However, the reality of the opposition research ending in April 2016 refutes that attempt at opaque obfuscation.   What began as ordinary commissioned opposition research into candidate Donald Trump back in 2015, stopped in April 2016. The contract to Christopher Steele to create the dossier came months later in June 2016.

Christopher Steele didn’t even enter the picture until June 2016, he had nothing to do with the research from the GOP primary; and the only similarity is the sub-contracting company Fusion GPS hired by the Clinton/DNC legal team at Perkins Coie.  This is the distinction the current Clinton Crew is attempting to avoid.

What is increasingly obvious from the entire timeline is that the FBI and Clinton’s contracted Christoper Steele were in cahoots in turning the information within the dossier into evidence used to gain FISA warrants to monitor the Trump Campaign.

It should be noted that in June 2016, simultaneous to Steele beginning, the FBI (according to Comey) began it’s counter intelligence gathering operation, the FBI attempted to gain a search warrant with the FISA court and was rebuked.  That is very uncommon.  However, after Steele provided the initial information to the FBI in October 2016, coincidentally, they were able to get the FISA warrant.  These timeline coincidences, inside admitted intelligence gathering operations, are too transparent not to be connected.

Andrew McCarthy […]  To summarize, it appears there were no grounds for a criminal investigation of banking violations against Trump. Presumably based on the fact that the bank or banks at issue were Russian, the Justice Department and the FBI decided to continue investigating on national-security grounds. A FISA application in which Trump was “named” was rejected by the FISA court as overbroad, notwithstanding that the FISA court usually looks kindly on government surveillance requests.

A second, more narrow application, apparently not naming Trump, may have been granted five months later; the best the media can say about it, however, is that the server on which the application centers is “possibly” related to the Trump campaign’s “alleged” links to two Russian banks — under circumstances in which the FBI has previously found no “nefarious purpose” in some (undescribed) connection between Trump Tower and at least one Russian bank (whose connection to Putin’s regime is not described).  (link with more links)

The entire outline of the Washington Post article -attributing financial origin for the “Russian Conspiracy Dossier” to the DNC and Clinton Campaign- should be cast against this backdrop of timeline transparency.  It certainly appears the motive for the WaPo article was to generate distance between Obama and Clinton’s unified efforts, by protecting the Obama half of the collaboration.

When you contemplate this ideological, and election-minded collaboration, you discover the leverage created therein by Hillary Clinton over FBI Director James Comey.

Hillary Clinton knew the FBI intelligence community was gathering information on her political opponent, and the reality of that knowledge provided leverage needed for Director Comey to jaw-droppingly clear Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing in the email scandal.

Funny how that works…

      WSB: “No, I didn’t sleep with that woman” – 1998 when Bill Clinton is impeached.
      “At this point, what difference does it make.? ” “Benghazi – Ambassador Steven was killed because of the video about Mohammad.”
      Hillary has been engaged in so many lies, that she is, has become a mentally ill, sociopathetic liar, and wouldn’t know the truth if it walked up and punched her in the face.

  6. Did the FBI collude to get Hillary elected? Did they rely upon an unsourced document to launch an investigation?

    Why did U.S. intelligence agencies release a public assessment asserting that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to aid President Trump? The FBI has been investigating whether President Trump’s associates helped the Russians in that effort and after the election, the FBI agreed to pay Steele to continue gathering intelligence about President Trump and Russia. We need an investigation into these agencies. Did they just decide to believe what was in the dossier before investigation was completed? The Democrats repeatedly cited these US intelligence agencies to bolster their claim to Russian collusion to wrongly hurt President Trump.

    Last week, Fusion GPS refused to answer questions from the House Intelligence Committee. Devin Nunes subpoenaed Fusion GPS’s bank records to try to identify the mystery GOP client that played for the dossier before Hillary and FBI played for it. Fusion GPS has until Friday to respond to the subpoena for their bank records. But these US intelligence agencies and FBI personify Deep State gone rogue no longer answering to the American people.

    I think I can answer my own question. The intelligence agencies and FBI have career Obama holdovers. Obama Administration even used the dossier to spy on candidate Trump and his associates. They failed at taking down this President but we need to have them held accountable.

    The tide is turning on the Trump/Russian collusion story….180 degree turn. Did we see it coming? Not only is there no evidence for it but it looks like the accusers themselves were colluding way before President Trump announced his candidacy. It will be interesting to watch the Dems try to spin this. But something troubles me…the wiretapping and surveillance of Manafort started sometime in 2014 and then was discontinued after nothing of criminal value or significance was gained but then the wiretapping began again in 2016. The 2016 time frame coincides with the surfacing of the nonsense Steele dossier where Hillary paid Fusion GPS to hire spy Christopher Steele. So when William Browder, CEO of Hermitage Capital, testified about the “Foreign Agents Registration Act” (FARA) that the Russian government actually paid Fusion GPS to create the Steele propaganda dossier on candidate Donald Trump, it was a complete lie? What a tangled web. And as mentioned before the FBI discontinued monitoring Manafort because no Russian ties were found or were there? Maybe they found ties to Podesta and how that group was being used to lobby Russian interests directly to Hillary.

    Remember from Assange’s Wikileaks where emails from Podesta show he decided to push the Russia/Trump collusion story? How ironic! Always accuse your opponent of what you in fact are doing. So why would Comey use that Steele dossier propaganda commissioned by who knows who (Jeb? Romney? McCain?) and funded in part by Hillary to attack Trump to launch his FBI investigation into candidate Donald Trump and Russian collusion? Also Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein may be part of the dossier/Uranium One collusion so now we are investigating the investigators? Makes your head spin.

    Please remember that the fired and discredited former FBI Director James Comey tried to leverage the debunked dossier assembled by a former British spy and paid for by Hillary and the DNC in order to keep his job. He told the President about it two weeks ahead of his inauguration and was going to use the false information in it as something he could hold over President Trump’s head. The predators have now been caught in their own web.

    Also remember that the disgraced FBI Director James Comey used the debunked, paid for by Hillary and the DNC dossier to win approval to secretly monitor Carter Page from the secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)
    Now we have come full circle. It is beyond troubling.

    She would have preferred to win the election on a lie and by fraud. Says alot about her. But at least she is truthful about it.
