Big If True: WaPo Says Hillary and DNC Funded #Pissgate Dossier!
From DAILY STORMER
The Washington Post is revealing from “sources” that Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, producers of the #Pissgate anti-Trump file, were hired first by someone in the GOP, then by Hillary and the DNC and then finally by the FBI itself.
I’m not moved by any “sources say” articles produced by any of the major fake news outlets at this point. We know for a fact that WaPo, NYT, CNN and all of these mainline Jew media publications will simply fake confidential sources or print statements from sources they know are lying.
We also know that they will withhold information that they think will hurt their agenda. As Marco Rubio of all people pointed out at the Comey hearing, the only thing that did not get leaked by the press was that Trump was not under investigation.
Most likely, this is getting printed now because the Jews knew this was going to be revealed by the government – something which President Trump has been calling for – and viewed getting out in front of this as an opportunity to give the public the impression that they are something other than Jewish terrorists pushing a subversive anti-American agenda, as well as to sell a narrative before a narrative is formed by President Trump. Any real sources they have would have told them this information when the document was released. I suspect that “Hillary paid for #Pissgate” is an open secret in the intelligence community.
For those who don’t recall, this is a document which claimed that Russia had video of Trump doing “golden shower” piss sex in a hotel room with hookers in Moscow – that he did it on the bed where Obama slept as a way to humiliate him somehow.
The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President 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.
After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the company in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by an unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.
If I had to guess, I’d say it was Ted Cruz’ people.
He was the real weasel of that contest.
Did you guys know his dad killed Kennedy and that he is the Zodiac killer?
John Kasich would have done it too, but he’s the only other guy I can see doing it.
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.
Fusion GPS gave Steele’s reports and other research documents to Elias, the people familiar with the matter said. It is unclear how or how much of that information was shared with the campaign and the DNC and who in those organizations was aware of the roles of Fusion GPS and Steele. One person close to the matter said the campaign and the DNC were not informed by the law firm of Fusion GPS’s role.
The dossier has become a lightning rod amid the intensifying investigations into the Trump campaign’s possible connections to Russia. Some congressional Republican leaders have spent months trying to discredit Fusion GPS and Steele and tried to determine the identity of the Democrat or organization that paid for the dossier.
Trump tweeted as recently as Saturday that the Justice Department and FBI should “immediately release who paid for it.”
Elias and Fusion GPS declined to comment on the arrangement. Spokesmen for the Clinton campaign and the DNC had no immediate comment.
Some of the details are included in a Tuesday letter sent by Perkins Coie to a lawyer representing Fusion GPS, telling the research firm that it was released from a client-confidentiality obligation. The letter was prompted by a legal fight over a subpoena for Fusion GPS’s bank records.
People involved in the matter said that they would not disclose the dollar amounts paid to Fusion GPS but that the campaign and the DNC shared the cost.
Steele previously worked in Russia for British intelligence. The dossier is a compilation of reports he prepared for Fusion GPS. The dossier alleged that the Russian government collected compromising information about Trump and that the Kremlin was engaged in an effort to assist his campaign for president.
U.S. intelligence agencies later released a public assessment asserting that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to aid Trump. The FBI has been investigating whether Trump associates helped the Russians in that effort.
Trump has adamantly denied the allegations in the dossier and has dismissed the FBI probe as a witch hunt.
Officials have said that the FBI has confirmed some of the information in the dossier. Other details, including the most sensational accusations, have not been verified and may never be.
They don’t mention that those “most sensational accusations” are “getting pissed on by hookers,” because it sounds too goofy. They haven’t been mentioning it since this was released – by Buzzfeed, of all people – a year ago.

They also don’t mention basic spelling mistakes in the document, like spelling “Alfa Bank” as “Alpha Bank.”
Fusion GPS’s work researching Trump began during the Republican presidential primaries, when the GOP donor paid for the firm to investigate the real estate magnate’s background.
Fusion GPS did not start off looking at Trump’s Russia ties but quickly realized that those relationships were extensive, according to the people familiar with the matter.
When the Republican donor stopped paying for the research, Elias, acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC, agreed to pay for the work to continue. The Democrats paid for research, including by Fusion GPS, because of concerns that little was known about Trump and his business interests, according to the people familiar with the matter.
Those people said that it is standard practice for political campaigns to use law firms to hire outside researchers to ensure their work is protected by attorney-client and work-product privileges.
The Clinton campaign paid Perkins Coie $5.6 million in legal fees from June 2015 to December 2016, according to campaign finance records, and the DNC paid the firm $3.6 million in “legal and compliance consulting’’ since November 2015 — though it’s impossible to tell from the filings how much of that work was for other legal matters and how much of it related to Fusion GPS.
At no point, the people said, did the Clinton campaign or the DNC direct Steele’s activities. They described him as a Fusion GPS subcontractor.
They’re trying to solidify the narrative that the DNC didn’t know he was going to do golden showers. They didn’t know this was going to be used to try and disrupt US intelligence operations.
Some of Steele’s allegations began circulating in Washington in the summer of 2016 as the FBI launched its counterintelligence investigation into possible connections between Trump associates and the Kremlin. Around that time, Steele shared some of his findings with the FBI.
After the election, the FBI agreed to pay Steele to continue gathering intelligence about Trump and Russia, but the bureau pulled out of the arrangement after Steele was publicly identified in news reports.
Right there – that’s almost a bigger bombshell than the fact that Clinton funded him. The WaPo had previously reported, back in February, that the FBI had considered paying Steele, but I think this is the first time it’s been admitted that they admitted went through with that.
What this shows is the GOP, then the DNC, then the FBI all funding blatantly fake, perverted opposition research against President Trump. The FBI knew that the DNC had funded this guy and the DNC knew that the GOP had funded him. That means that all three of these groups are working together against Trump.
This is what the President is up against: a unified “two party” system, operating in concert with intelligence and law enforcement, all of it intent on destroying him.
Which is why I tell you people: when he does something you don’t like, try to cut him some slack and understand where he is coming from.
As far as I’m concerned, the FBI hiring a guy that they knew to be compiling fake intelligence to continue to compile fake intelligence in order to attempt to take down an elected President with weird pervert sex allegations was a criminal act. And this happened under James Comey’s watch.
The traitor James Comey is caught up in so much, what with being an admitted leaker, lying under oath at least twice, and all of the stuff he did during the campaign, that he is an easy guy to pinch. Arresting and prosecuting him would lead to an unraveling of this entire conspiracy which exists to undermine and destroy the President.
