Trump bashes Obama camp for alleged role in dossier

Trump bashes Obama camp for alleged role in dossier”

Did OFA know they were funding the anti-Trump operation?

Trump agreed with Bannon that it needed to be done, according to two sources familiar with the conversation.

Republicans have claimed the document, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, had been exposed as a partisan smear after evidence emerged that the Clinton campaign had funded its research by Washington, D.C., firm Fusion GPS.

The tweet references a report from The Federalist that alleges the Obama campaign fund "Obama For America" paid the money to the law firm Perkins Coie, which paid Fusion for the Trump dossier that fueled Russian collusion allegations. It also contains unsubstantiated sexual allegations.

Since its launch in February of 2012, the Washington Free Beacon has retained third party firms to conduct research on many individuals and institutions of interest to us and our readers.

But a Federal Election Commission report reveals that Obama For America, paid almost $800,000 to Perkins Coie in 2016 for "legal services", The Federalist reported. The first round of payments were classified as "Legal Services" and were made in April 2016, totaling $98,047.

The president said that Republicans were angry and united over the "lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier (now $12,000,000?), the Uranium to Russian Federation deal, the 33,000 plus deleted Emails, the Comey fix and so much more".

Representatives of the Free Beacon approached the House Intelligence Committee today and offered to answer what questions we can in their ongoing probe of Fusion GPS and the Steele dossier.

Also last week, Fox News confirmed reports that the Clinton campaign and the DNC paid more than $9 million to Perkins Coie, which, in turn, retained the political consultants who commissioned the opposition research.

However, Clinton and other high-level Democrats have denied having knowledge of the dossier during the election. Marc Elias, general counsel to Hillary for America and a partner at Perkins Coie, retained Fusion GPS in April of 2016 to dig up dirt on President Trump.

A spokesman for then-DNC chair Rep. Singer continued to subsidize the dossier until Trump seemingly clinched the Republican nomination in May 2016, and Democrats took over thereafter. "They lost it and they lost very badly".
