Clinton lawyer, DNC helped bankroll research that led to Trump-Russia dossier

The Democratic National Committee and a lawyer for Hillary Clinton helped bankroll research that led to the now-infamous dossier on alleged ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian government operatives, sources familiar with the matter said Tuesday.

Marc Elias, a lawyer who represented the DNC and the Clinton campaign, retained a Washington firm, Fusion GPS, to carry out the research, the sources said. Services from the firm were retained from April 2016 until before the election in early November, a source said.

Interesting that this is a Politico take on a Washington Post story. Lock. Her. Up.

    The funded PART of it. It’s equally important to know who ELSE has a hand and to get ahead of it because if they let the DNC throw that heretofore unknown other party under the bus the DNC and the Clintons will skate on this.

      there are strong indicators that a republican senator helped fund it and received a copy of the bogus file.

    And how many million paid for copies are in containers en route to Togo or other places in need of repulping feed stock.
