The truth behind the Trump-Russia dossier is even worse than you think

The Christopher Steele dossier has been at the heart of the allegations that Trump colluded with Russia during the campaign.

Trump claims the dossier – as well as the allegations of collusion – are fake news.

But the truth is even worse than you think.

A bombshell report revealed that the dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee.



The Washington Post reports:

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

After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the company in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by an 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.”

The dossier – which formed the basis for the investigation into Russian collusion – was nothing more than a work of fiction commissioned by Donald Trump’s political opponents.

It was used to launch congressional investigations, ruin lives through millions of dollars in legal fees, turn families upside down due to resignations and possible charges and the dossier was nothing more than a political hit document put together by the Democrats.

It was – as Trump always declared – fake news.

    • Why don’t you all want to see where this investigation is going to go and who’s going to get caught up in the wash?;!! I’m a Democrat leaning Independent but would not be surprised if a little bit of everybody isn’t shaking in their boots right now!!! You all didn’t care how much money, time or anything else went into Benghazi as long as it got Hillary, huh?!?! That’s exactly what’s wrong with this mess, you all want to have it one way(YOURS) and that’s not what our JUSTICE SYSTEM is supposed to be about is it!?!

  2. Here’s the whole thing in a nut shell, this was written by fraudulent means, information and everything else that that could cause innocent people harm in many aspects of their lives. Deformation of character is the one thing that stands out but that is only the tip of the iceberg. With this being ignited with pure and utter lies but produced as “the gospel truth”, the author of these lies and all others concerned should be held accountable for perpetrating immoral, contemptuous and blatant lies upon the American people and its victims named in that dossier. Now that this information is known to be false, it’s time for action against the perpetrators to show them the “error of their ways”. This is a case that should have criminal AND civil punishment.

    • By the way I’m already in that country THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!! LOVE YOU AND AIN’T NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!!!😘😘😘😘😘

  3. Every seating member of Congress needs to be reviewed and interviewed about their part in blackmailing President Trump. These people are dirty down to their socks and need to be exposed to their voters. Their tears, shaking fist and vulgar name calling,which show lack of culture and obscene actions should tell every voter members of congress should be kicked out. Term limits should work. These are the people that say Trump is not qualified!

    • Really Bonnie, name calling, shaking ✊!! Are you talking about our PRESIDENT, too?!?! The one who mocks the disabled, the overweight, the female sex and anyone else that disagrees or calls him on his lies?!?! You know what amazes rational thinking people, HOW IN THE HELL CAN YOU GUYS CALL ANYONE OBSTRUCTIONIST, WHEN NO MATTER WHO’S IDEAS HE ATTEMPTED USE MAINLY REPUBLICAN IDEAS THAT WERE GOOD FOR OUR GREAT COUNTRY!!!

Lack of Culture, being rich and whatever COLOR doesn’t mean you have CULTURE!! The President is THE BLACKMAILER IN CHIEF, THE BULLY IN CHIEF, THE VULGAR ONE IN CHARGE, THE RACIST IN CHARGE, THE SEXIST IN CHARGE, THE FREELOADER IN CHARGE!!! The man has caused numerous small businesses to go out of business refusing to pay them, ripped off investors hell I could go on for days but, have to get ready for NFL FOOTBALL GAMES!!!

      • Comrade Kelton – please simmer down and take another pill. We understand your pains ever since the American voter’s boot administered a gigantic hit into your communist ass.

        • No Mark I’m not a communist, I am as AMERICAN SD THEY COME!!!

I LOVE YOU AND AIN’T NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT OKAY!!!! Let’s MAKE AKL OF AMERICA GREATER, NOT JUST THE PARTS WE LIKE HOW ABOUT THAT

          • Mr. Kelton I admire your service and thank you for it but I was told that this is a Republic not a democracy!

          • Corky that’s what’s so SCARY to US PEOPLE OF COLOR you guys keep changing the rules and you have all of the POWER just as you’ve always had!! But when we ( PEOPLE OF COLOR) stand for our GOD GIVEN RIGHTS, we’re WRONG, WE’RE TROUBLE MAKERS!!! There are REAL PROBLEMS IN THIS COUNTRY WHEN IT COMES TO RACIAL ISSUES OKAY!!! STOP THIS MADNESS AND LET’S TALK ABOUT IT!!!7

  4. STRANGE HOW OBAMA SENT HIS ADVISERS AND UNKNOWN AMOUNTS OF TAX PAYER MONEY TO ISRAEL DURING THEIR ELECTION TO TRY AND OVERTHROW NETENYAHOU AND YET NIBIDY SAYS A WORD..OOPS HE IS BLACK,CANT SAY ANYTHING..NEVERMIND.

  5. This intrusion of government will never stop unless we, the people, stop it. “President” Trump needs help draining the cesspool in DC. Start 2018 voting the rinos and crooked dems out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Y;ou should contact your representative,senator and tell them that since the dossier has been proven to be false then the investigation needs to end, seeing as how it was started based on the dossier. There are no grounds to continue the investigation unless Mueller is covering his corruption.

      • Nothing has been proven false, people stop this madness please!! Let the investigation run it’s course okay! If there isn’t anything there so be it!!; But if there is something that’s found be big enough to take the kick and not say it was a witch-hunt,!! You have to believe that every intelligence network in the entire WORLD is in on it, please!!! WE HAVE TO STOP THIS MADNESS!!

  6. Mueller should be held accountable for his part in this too! Comey, Lynch, Rosentein, Brennan, Obama, and anybody else that contributed to this farce including the media! If the British were in on it then they should be held up to the same accountability as would the Russians. In fact, it looks like standard policy was to interfere with elections anywhere and by all parties! May as well investigate the UN while we are it.

  7. Time for Marc Elias to be disbarred for his role in this criminal travesty. As both Obamas and both Clintons had to surrender their licenses to practice law for unethical behavior, so should Marc Elias. Birds of a feather. . .

  8. Isn’t this the same party that put together a false birth certificate back in 2007 and 2008 for a certain black candidate who was running for president,who according to reports dating back for years,saying he was a citizen of Kenya,even his grand mother affirmed that he was born in Kenya,but they ignored these facts and claim he had been veted,strange.

    • You’re ridiculous man, how long are some of you going to continue this Birther Mess!! When did his Grandmother verify any such thing?? So what you all who says this are saying is somehow President Obama was able to be put in place by some unknown forces and elected President BUT( NOTE THE CAPS) it’s entirely fictional that Russia our sworn enemy from THE SOVIET UNION DAYS, who will do and has the capability to do it!! Had nothing to do with President Trump getting elected!!! YA’LL CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS PEOPLE, STOP THIS MADNESS THAT IS TEARING OUR COUNTRY APART!!! The only difference that was between President Obama and all other Presidents was the COLOR OF HIS SKIN AND HE WAS HALF WHITE!! JUST WISH THE UNDERCOVER RACIST WOULD COME OUT SO WE’D KNOW WHO WE’RE DEALING WITH!!! SMILING IN OUR FACES AND HATING US FOR THE COLOR OF OUR SKIN AND NOTHING ELSE!! DISPICABLE

      • Huh??? What the flip are you talking about Kelton Friklin? This is a race issue in Your Mind Only. Don’t work so hard, relax, this is about the Clinton’s and Trump.

        • Stop spreading HATE man, those are LIES and ya’ll know it!! Why do you all continue with the Muslim thing?? Please answer that question and what if he is?!!! Read the Constitution it doesn’t disqualify you no matter what religion you are!!! If and I said if it’s proven that President Trump’s Organisation was on the take with Putin what are you all going to say?!?! I said if now remember that because unlike you I believe in INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!!!

      • Y’all are truly sick people to keep this debunked, foolish mess going!!! What the HELL is wrong with you guys!! You’re scary people

Are you a Christian, Terry or are you like so many others who claim to be and harbour all sorts of animosity against those who don’t think like you!¡ LOVE YOU AND AIN’T NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!¡!

  9. Dear Mr. Deputy AG Rosenstein:
    You would be fully aware of all facets of the Trump-Russia 2016 Election collusion, if any. No collusion was discovered. And so, it would behoove the present Attorney General Mr. Jeffrey Sessions, Esq., to un-recuse himself now that there is no evidence of a Trump felony. You, however, Mr. Deputy AG, are complicit with Attorney Robert Mueller, Esq. in establishing a Special Council and appointed Mr. Mueller to that position.
    It is known in public circles that Mr. Mueller is a close friend of former Dir. FBI, James B. Comey. When POTUS Trump fired Comey, Attorney. Robert Mueller can be seen as an extremely biased prosecutor. Mueller’s assignment, at the suggestion of Comey and its actual enactment, is, in my opinion illegal.
    I am aware that a Special Council is triggered by ongoing or previous criminal activity and is based upon hard evidence that can be used to prosecute a felon. Yet Atty. Robert Mueller was made Special Council without any criminal activity performed by a felon and without any evidence. And then, to establish a Grand Jury for the prosecution, that is totally out of line with ethical justice and the Rule of Law. The complicit activity described in the body of this letter is the criminal activity, in my opinion. No, the Mueller investigation and Grand Jury is not a witch hunt. Rather it is a stronger term, a Vendetta.

    • Yeah, and they always get away with it. You know how many people died from the Clintons conveniently arranging things to make it look like an accident or suciside? Goes way back…this has to stop! I’m sick of her glaring face with guilt all over it & she knows she’ll get away with it! Let’s stop this discussting despicable person NOW!

    • You know how this will end especially if the prosecutor Muller, ex Fbi Comey. Rosenstein, Clintons, Debbie W, obama, Holder, Lynch and a bevy of high ranking democrats the end results would be NO EVIDENCE OF CORRUPTION REGARDING THE ONES NAMED, THE DNC, OR THE TECHS, EXCEPT WE ARE STILL LOOKING INTO.COLLUSION REGARDING PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE RUSSIANS, RUSSIANS RUSSIAN. THE INMATES HAVE THE KEYS TO THE CRIMINAL INSTITUTION.\, JUDGES AND JURIES.I believe SESSIONS WILL REMAIN MUTE AND NO NOTHING — I PRAY I’M WRONG

  10. Is it not amazing that shortly after the c’s and others were found to be involved in all that is illegal in Washington that Muehler’s GANG JURY came up with findings against others who lean to the right. I do not believe in coincidences. DO YOU?

    • No,it’s either to try to save his butt or it’s queen hillary going to jail tomorrow.It better be queen hillary going to jail tomorrow……..

  11. I agree with Joe…The clintons and the DNC have always been behind every backhanded, illegal and unconstitutional attempt at undermining President Trumps Presidency. GITMO has lots of empty cells!

    • Leavenworth is where they would send a government traitor. If they are a big enough traitor I would say hang them, just like our founding fathers would have done because hanging is way to disgrace the traitor. There are a lot of them that should be handled this way from Obama on down to McCain.

    • I was reared in a STRONG demo family. I even “worked” for the JFK election. I all but worshiped JFK but could not stand his brothers. Then LBJ opened my eyes and the peanut farmer was the last straw.

      Anyway, I now firmly believe that ANYONE who supports deceitful, arrogant, criminal demoncraps is just as evil, arrogant, and criminal as those being supported.

  12. Whats the news here. The clintons and the DNC have always been behind every backhanded, illegal and unconstitutional attempt at undermining President Trumps Presidency.

    • Yeah, and they always get away with it. You know how many people died from the Clintons conveniently arranging things to make it look like an accident or suciside? Goes way back…this has to stop! I’m sick of her glaring face with guilt all over it & she knows she’ll get away with it! Let’s stop this discussting despicable person NOW!

    • True But will they be held accountable. Or will this blow hot for a time and then die as before. And if they are held accountable will the left ramp up their devoted supporters and cause riots over the US

    • I agree. But now that the grounds for the investigation have been proven false, then the investigation stops. There is no grounds for an investigation.

      • You know what trips me out, is Bhegazi went on forever and you guys were fine with it!! Yet, this investigation strikes at THE VERY CORE OF OUR DEMOCRACY BRAND YOU’RE OKAU WITH IT!! HOW OLD ARE YOU PEOPLE TO NOT RECALL THE SOVIET UNION AND WHAT IT STOOD FOR AND AGAINST!!! WOOOOW GOW SOON WE FORGET!!!
