During the culmination of the investigation into the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russia, a few particularly interesting pieces of information have arisen.
The first being that the dossier, which provided unsubstantiated information about Trump’s ties to Russia, was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton Campaign.
The DNC and Clinton Campaign contracted the Washington D.C. firm, Fusion GPS, who then subcontracted a British Intelligence officer to probe Trump’s dealings with Russia and any other compromising information that could be gathered.
The second is that the Washington Free Beacon was not involved with the dossier author, Christopher Steele, as many have once believed. The dossier involving Steele did not exist until after the Democrats hired Fusion GPS, although the Washington Free Beacon had funded Fusion GPS’s research previously.
The third is the most bizarre, which indicates that firm had collaborated with Russian resources to find morally compromising material on Trump, which was outlined in a report by Buzzfeed.
Fusion GPS contracted former MI-6 British intelligence officer, Christopher Steele, to spearhead the dossier which resulted in a series of unsupported claims regarding the sexual endeavors of Mr. Trump.
Steele then collaborated with high level Russian Officials to field a graphic and detailed report of Mr. Trump’s sexual activity and dealings in Russia.
The first source was ‘Source A— ‘a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure.’ Source B was ‘a former top level intelligence officer still active in the Kremlin.’
Essentially, the report depended heavily on the information provided by members of the Russian government, sources that are notoriously corrupt and unreliable.
Further information has surfaced that even the FBI had funded the dossier by paying for the expenses of Christopher Steele during his investigation.
The Trump-Russia report itself was ridden with inaccurate and often incorrect information, such as misspelt names and claims about geographic locations in Russian.
The dossier, at best, is a collaboration between the Clinton Campaign and the DNC, to fund an investigation yielding unreliable information regarding our current president. At worst, it is an act of collusion between Russia, the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton Campaign to produce compromising information on the President of the United States—the exact accusation that has been perpetuated against President Trump.
