Hillary Clinton defends funding anti-Trump dossier in late-night interview

Hillary Clinton defends funding anti-Trump dossier in late-night interview”

Clinton called Russia's meddling in the election an ongoing threat to America: "This is cyber warfare", she said.

"If we don't get to the bottom of it, we're not going to know what to believe, and that plays right into the hands of authoritarians", she said, analyzing the current polarization of American discourse. But that dossier is a disgrace and should not have been allowed to be used, ' he said.

Ingraham said a total of $9 million had gone into the project - the combined total the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid to a law firm that brokered the deal with a firm called Fusion GPS. "It's not tanks and planes and ships, but it is a form of war, and we've never had an adversary who attacked us with so few consequences, and I think that's in large measure because the president is so ambivalent". "He's an experienced lawyer, he knows what the law is, he knows what opposition research is", she added.

'It's inconceivable, it's absolutely inconceivable, it's awful, ' the president said of the larger amount.

"From my perspective, it didn't come out before the election, as we all know, and what also didn't come out, which I think is an even bigger problem.is that the American people didn't even know that the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign because of connections with Russian Federation starting in the summer of 2016", she told Noah.

Hillary Clinton on Wednesday night defended her campaign's funding of the Steele dossier that alleged ties between Donald Trump and the Kremlin, and also said the American people should have known the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign before the presidential election.

But Americans, she insisted, should have been made aware that the FBI started investigating potential ties between Trump and Russian entities months before Election Day. That's something that may have influenced some people. He knows what opposition research is'.

Not surprisingly, Clinton misrepresented the original hiring of Fusion GPS by a Republican donor. When the Clinton campaign hired Fusion GPS after Trump won, Steele was hired and worked with Russian officials to come up the infamous and salacious dossier.

The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website, first paid political research firm Fusion GPS for opposition research into Trump in 2015 and ended its relationship after Trump secured the GOP nomination the following year, The Associated Press reported.
