Dossier on Trump-Russia Connections Funded by Clinton Campaign, DNC

A now-famous dossier that has become a lightening rod in the midst of the investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign was funded in part by the Democratic National Convention and the Hillary Clinton campaign.

The Washington Post reports that Marc Elias, a lawyer for the Clinton campaign and the DNC, hired Washington-based firm Fusion GPS to conduct the research. 

Fusion then hired Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with a history of working for the U.S. intelligence community, to investigate the Trump-Russia connection and write the dossier.

Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, worked with Fusion GPS from April until days before the presidential election.

British Spy Who Wrote Trump Dossier Interviewed by Mueller’s Team

The former British spy who wrote the salacious dossier on Russia’s role in the presidential election met with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators over the summer, CNN reports

The dossier by Christopher Steele, a former MI-6 officer, helped spawn the investigation into Russia’s involvement in the presidential election.

While investigators have said in the past that they cannot confirm the validity of the dossier’s contents, they took it more seriously than they let on publicly.

CNN reported:

The intelligence agencies, particularly the CIA, and the FBI took Steele’s research seriously enough that they kept it out of a publicly-released January report on Russian meddling in the election in order to not divulge which parts of the dossier they had corroborated and how.

This contrasts with attempts by President Donald Trump and some lawmakers to discredit Steele and the memos he produced.

Ever since the dossier came to light in January, Trump and his allies have repeatedly insisted that it is a complete work of fiction. He told The New York Times this summer that the dossier “was totally made-up stuff.” In a series of tweets earlier this year, Trump said the memos were written by a “failed spy” who had relied on “totally made-up facts by sleazebag political operatives.”

Lawmakers also want to interview Steele, and they could compel him to talk.

It wasn’t immediately clear what other information Steele provided the FBI.

President Trump’s former foreign policy adviser, Carter Page, has acknowledged he has was extensively questioned by the FBI in March in connection with the ongoing investigation into alleged collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

In an unverified collection of memos popularly known as the Trump-Russia dossier, Page is accused of being the middleman between the campaign and Russia.

The dossier, written by Christopher Steele, a former British spy who spent years working in Moscow, alleges Page was part of a “well-developed conspiracy of cooperation between (Trump associates) and the Russian leadership.”

Page said he denied the allegations during five FBI interviews that lasted more than a combined 10 hours.

Steele is no stranger to the FBI. During his time on British intelligence agency’s M16 Moscow desk, the FBI repeatedly worked with him on Russia-related investigations.

In a message to CNBC, Page said:

During my extensive discussions with the FBI agents just weeks before Comey’s departure, they acknowledged that I’m a loyal American veteran but indicated that their ‘management’ was concerned that I did not believe the conclusions of the fake January 6 intelligence report. I told them that I learned the lessons from the intelligence failures of the original Dodgy Dossier from 2003 which cost this country thousands of service members lives and over a trillion dollars. Our frank and open conversations gave me confidence that there are still logical, honest individuals at the Bureau who respect civil rights and the Constitution, despite the recent devastating impact on our democracy by self-centered politicians at the top of the Clinton-Obama-Comey regime.

Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group, wants information about the relationship between the FBI and former British spy Christopher Steele, who helped compiled a dossier alleging that Trump advisers colluded with the Russian government and that Trump met up with Russian prostitutes, according to the Daily Caller.

A lawsuit seeks all records of communications between FBI officials and Steele, who runs the London-based consulting firm, Orbis Business Intelligence.

The organization also wants records of any discussions of payments from the FBI to Steele for his work compiling the dossier, which consists of 17 memos.
