FILE - In this Feb. 17, 2016 file photo, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton laughs during a campaign stop in Chicago. Hillary Clinton’s work-related emails from her private account are now public, more than 52,000 pages detailing her tenure as America’s top diplomat but failing to resolve questions about how she and her closest aides handled classified information. Several investigations continue looking into her exclusive use of a non-government email account and homebrew server while in government, an issue that has dogged her campaign, even though she seems well-positioned to capture the Democratic presidential nomination.

Incestuous: The DNC, Hillary Clinton, and the FBI Were All Shaping the So-Called Trump Dossier

Well this is a pretty big story. It was not just the FBI collaborating with Christopher Steele on the so-called Trump Dossier alleging Trump’s dealings with Russia and all sorts of other sordid things. Hillary Clinton and the DNC were involved as well.

Fusion GPS, a Democrat group with ties to Russia, seems to have commissioned Steele to dig dirt on Trump with participation by the DNC and Clinton. Then the FBI agreed to pay Steele.

So both the DNC campaign apparatus and the Democratic leader, Barack Obama via his FBI, tried to dig up dirt on Trump.

And let us remember it was BuzzFeed, a left leaning organization, that released the dossier publicly. Pretty obvious where they got it now.

This should all be kept in mind as the Democrats continue to claim Russia stole the election and that Donald Trump has all sorts of nefarious ties to Russia. Many of those claims, now, appear to really have been generated in an incestuous relationship of sore losers.

The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.

Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research.

After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
