After eight months of lies from the left that a fake dossier contained evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump and the Russians, now we find out that the whole “report” was a false flag effort invented by an outfit bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee to destroy Trump’s campaign for president.
Not only that, but we’ve also found out that the real colluders were the Clintons and the Democrats.
On Tuesday, the Washington Post revealed that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid for the report that claimed that Trump was connected to Russia.
The paper reported that Marc E. Elias, an attorney working form Hillary Clinton and the DNC, hired Fusion GPS to produce the fake Russia/Trump report.
Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the firm in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Prior to that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by a still unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.
The Clinton campaign and the DNC through the law firm continued to fund Fusion GPS’s research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.
Fusion GPS gave Steele’s reports and other research documents to Elias, the people familiar with the matter said. It is unclear how or how much of that information was shared with the campaign and DNC, and who in those organizations was aware of the roles of Fusion GPS and Steele. One person close to the matter said the campaign and the DNC weren’t informed of Fusion GPS’s role by the law firm.
The Post also said, “People involved in the matter said they would not disclose the dollar-amounts paid to Fusion GPS, but said the campaign and the DNC shared the cost.”
You’ll recall the dossier was brought up by click bait site BuzzFeed not long after Trump won the White House.
At the time, the site noted that the “allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors,” but they put out the report anyway.
This same report had been floating around the media since it was invented by Hillary and the DNC, but not a single reputable news agency reported on the dossier because it was so obviously a pile of unsubstantiated lies.
Indeed, you have to realize how much garbage this thing was if even all the far left news agencies in the counry wouldn’t sully their organizations by using this false document.
Now you know how seriously you should take anything that comes from BuzzFeed.
But that isn’t the only scandal, here.
Fox News host Sean Hannity slammed the Clintons and the media for stringing us along with their lies about Trump for these many months.
“The evidence is now incontrovertible, it’s overwhelming that the Clintons sold out our national security to the Russians, and the Obama administration did nothing to stop them and then they covered it up,” Hannity said on Tuesday. “Democrats and the media, they have been lying to you for over a year about what is really going on.”
We have also discovered that the heart of the Russia/Clinton collusion was a deal to allow the Russian company Uranium One to buy a significant part of America’s uranium supply.
The investigation has revealed a whole slew of connections between the Clintons and Russia.
For instance, we have learned that Bill Clinton wanted to meet with Russian high-rollers during a 2010 trip to Moscow where he was paid a $500,000 speaking fee. And Russia sought to buy influence with the Clintons in 2009, as the deal with Uranium One was nearing its 2010 approval at the Department of State (where Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, as you’ll recall). But that all went up in smoke when a Russian spy ring was broken up in 2010.
And, worse for the Clintons, news broke this week that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is now looking into Clinton operative John Podesta for his connections to Russia, as well.
Hannity slammed the media for the whole story.
“When it comes to Russia, it is clear that Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media have been flat out lying to the American people about what is really happening,” Hannity said.
Hannity summarized, saying, “Putin wanted a piece of our uranium supply, our government knew he was illegally (trying) to get it, a former president met with him and pocketed a suspicious speaking fee and, what did our government do? The Obama administration, including Hillary Clinton and then-Attorney General Eric Holder let it happen. In 2010, the Uranium One deal was approved.”
It looks like the left’s veil of lies is starting to be lifted.
