Democrat Collusion
with Russia

Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist has written a must-read article on the “Russia dossier” which, it turns out, was paid for in part by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). The dossier’s extreme and baseless claims on Donald Trump supplied the template for media treatment of the president for much of the last year and sparked multiple investigations.

Here are 10 things to keep in mind about the dossier:

  1. Russian officials were sources of key claims in the dossier.
  2. No, the Russian dossier was not initially funded by Republicans.
  3. The dossier is chock full of discredited information.
  4. The dossier was used as a basis for wiretaps on American citizens.
  5. The FBI also paid for the dossier.
  6. Dossier publisher Fusion GPS works with shady outfits.
  7. Fusion GPS’ ties to media are problematic.
  8. Jim Comey personally briefed Trump on the dossier, shortly before CNN reported it.
  9. The Mueller investigation was spurred by the dossier and by illegal leaks from intelligence operatives about President Trump.

  10. The Steele dossier was a Clinton/DNC-funded operation supported by the FBI and influenced heavily by Russian operatives in the Kremlin.
