Don't miss this part: Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by a still unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.
(One guess) :lol:

 The fake "dossier" was used AS THE PRETEXT FOR OBTAINING FISA WARRANTS TO SPY ON TRUMP IN THE FIRST PLACE!

*snip*
Quote
The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about Donald 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.

Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community.

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 dossier has become a lightning rod amid the intensifying investigations into the Trump campaign’s possible connections to Russia. Some congressional Republican leaders have spent months trying to discredit Fusion GPS and Steele, and tried to determine the identity of the Democrat or organization that paid for it.



Elias and Fusion GPS declined to comment on the arrangement.

(Side bar your honor: When the Republican donor stopped paying for the research, Elias (of Perkins Coie, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC), acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC, agreed to pay for the work to continue.) :lol:

Listening to Mark Levin describe Marc E. Elias' work with the DNC ... he might be connected to EVERYTHING DNC related.

Time to hire a couple of body guards, this guy better watch out, people who have known a lot less, have died unexpectedly.

WOW!!!   This thing is falling apart so fast, I doubt the MSM can pick up all the pieces and put it together coherently.

Everyone of the people involved, must have BET on Hillary winning.  She was their insurance policy, it all would have been hushed up, swept under the rug, and never would have seen the light of day.

So the question I've been pondering for 9 months, "Why can't the Democrats let this Trump thing *go* and get on with more pressing matters...?   Why the slow-walking, delays, everywhere you look, it's coated with Molassas, and just dragging along, why?"

IF or WHEN this goes into a full-blown investigation, it'll be a HUGE net to bring in all the players.   
These guys aren't against Trump, they're desperate to kill any investigation to preserve their own asses!
All we need is just ONE insider to cop-a-plea and spill the beans.

The link between Russia and Uranium One is established, with "guess who" - the family in the thick of it?  And a whole bunch more people!
The Dossier is/has just been connected to ... some of the same people!   Surprise, surprise!

Meanwhile... the heat from Hillary is getting Obama warmer and warmer.   the Obama administration is probably up to their necks in this.

This has been out for some time now, NySlimes broke the story awhile back, but as you said, they just keep dragging on in hopes of?

But one thing is certain, both The Dim party as well as the Establishment RINO are on their way out.

In hopes time will expire, or Trump will be neutered, or Mueller and company will have enough time to sabotage efforts to uncover incriminating evidence - bury it, alter it, render it useless, reclassify it & move it somewhere else.

Really, folks, does *anyone* really think Robert Mueller is looking into evidence to nail Trump - or preparing for the day HE & Rosenstein gets investigated?  There's the other answer, why it's taking so long, their bleaching the past... self-preservation.

sounds like either the liberals are throwing the hillary under the bus to protect obama, or the liberals are totally without any power to stop anything.



or both



 I bet the lsm was crying big tears when they had to report this one.

We are seeing a party die and it ain't the Tea party.  Liberals are running and rinos are leaving,  looks like a good day. :thumbup:

We talking MAJOR lawsuit civil case & possibly civil rights violation on Trump et al under color of law.  The criminal aspect of this is staggering.

Do you have proof Sessions is not honoring his recusal?
