The Washington Post published a bombshell on the discredited Trump dossier on Tuesday.
As Kristinn Taylor reported earlier on The Gateway Pundit the WaPo article claims the 2016 presidential campaign of Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid for the Fusion GPS dossier alleging Russian ties with the presidential campaign of Republican Donald Trump and sordid phony personal smears of Trump.The Post reported that Clinton campaign and DNC lawyer Marc Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS to continue researching Trump after a Republican donor who originally funded the research pulled out in April 2016.
According to reports, a GOP donor originally funded the oppo research during the primaries. Via WaPo:
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.
On Wednesday President Trump taunted Hillary Clinton and the Democrats by saying the Russia hoax has turned around.
This is the boomerang effect Sean Hannity has been talking about and it’s glorious to watch.
Trump also teased the press and hinted that he has one name in mind in who the Republican funder of the dossier was during the primaries. When pressed, Trump said “it will be revealed” and “you will be surprised."
