Clinton Campaign, Dems Helped Fund Research for Trump Dossier – CIA breaks with MI6

October 24, 2017

A lawyer representing Hillary Clinton‘s 2016 presidential campaign, as well as the Democratic National Committee (DNC), helped fund research for the controversial dossier about President Trump’s alleged connections to Russia, according to a new report.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Marc Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS in April 2016 to continue investigating Trump’s background. Before that, a still unknown Republican donor funded the firm.

Fusion GPS is a private research firm co-founded by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson in 2011. In the past, the firm has conducted opposition research on Republicans including Mitt Romney during his 2012 presidential bid.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC funded the firm’s efforts through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day, according to The Washington Post.
