Secret Donors Helped Finance Trump Dossier Team Research After Election (Partners In Slime)
Fox News ^ | 5-1-2018 | Alex Pappas

Posted on 05/01/2018 8:54:40 AM PDT by blam

The team of opposition researchers behind the infamous anti-Trump dossier embraced by the FBI were paid big bucks to continue trying to dig up dirt on Russian meddling in American politics – even after the 2016 presidential election.

That revelation, buried inside a 243-page report released by House Intelligence Committee Republicans last week, has sparked new speculation about the identities of the secretive donors who were funding the post-election project.

According to the House Intelligence Committee report, Daniel J. Jones – the president of the Penn Quarter Group and a former staffer for Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein – “secured the services” of dossier author and former British spy Christopher Steele “to continue exposing Russian interference” after the election. It also hired an associate of Steele’s and the opposition research firm Fusion GPS.

That report doesn’t list the donors. But Jones told the FBI that the Penn Quarter Group was being funded by seven to 10 wealthy donors, primarily in New York and California, who provided approximately $50 million to the firm, it said.

Fusion and Steele originally teamed up during the 2016 campaign to compile a dossier of salacious and unverified allegations about Trump's connections to Russia, paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign through law firm Perkins Coie. The dossier allegedly was used by the DOJ and FBI to obtain surveillance warrants to spy on a member of the Trump team.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano reacts to if the evidence is there for a probe.

The post-election work presumably would have continued to look at any Trump team connections – with an eye toward publicizing their findings.

As soon as the Dems came into the Steele collusion picture, they discovered the phrase “Opposition Research” to replace the term “collusion”.

Trump must fire Mueller. With my review of the trick questions leaked by Mueller it is quite clear that he has gone off the rails and embarked of perjury trap setting that has nothing to do with the joke “Russian Collusion” or obstruction. Based only on this — Trump should clean house NOW. This has become a farce. We elected Trump to be president and it is time for him to asset those powers that we gave him and quit tip toeing around. Sessions is a complete failure . His failure to tell Trump he was recusing was tantamount to a lie. He needs to go along with corrupt Rosenstien . Mr. President, the time is NOW.

The Democrats' salacious dossier features a "prostitute" character. This is straight out of the low-life sex-saturated mind of Bill Clinton--- cavorting with prostitutes is a big deal Arkansas thing.

Unfortunately, Mueller hasnt figured it out yet, but the dossier's prostie character is the exculpatory clue----and evidence of the criminal Clintons colluding to take down Trump.

CASE IN POINT: Playboy's Hugh Hefner was shot down bigtime-----Hefner could NOT get a gaming license for a Playboy Club in Atlantic City. The inference, of course, is Hefner's connection with prostitutes made him unsuitable for an A/C gaming license.

The gaming commission is assiduous in vetting those who apply for gaming licenses.

Donald Trump passed the vetting with flying colors------if he had any connection to prostitutes, it would have been exposed.

End of story. The A/C gaming commission allowed Trump to operate four A/C casinos. Somebody better call Mueller.

Excellent point! Thank you Liz.

Shouldn't someone show this article to Comey as he hasn't a clue who is behind the dossier.

Is this as bad as it’s starting to seem? Was there really a coup d’etat - - an “illegal and overt seizure of a state” by corrupt liberal ‘elites’?

Mueller must be a clone of the simpleton Broward Sheriff Israel.

Every blessed things these guys say or do exposes their own shortcomings and the complicity of their cohorts.

Every road Mueller takes deeply implicates his Democrat handlers.

He doesnt have too many roads left to traverse....and that will lead to his undoing.

Thanks for the link.......the Mueller “questions” are so simplistic.

One doesnt have to be a rocket scientist to see the Democrat meme written all over the queries.

Before any sit-down takes place. Trump’s lawyers should ask Mueller:” Who wrote these questions for you?”

This is important b/c we need to know who is cueing in lamebrain Mueller.

When the dossie surfaced, the “prostitute” character was so obvious to me......

I frankly wondered why others could not see the incongruity there.

Then again, maybe they didnt have the information I had.

So there it is.

I really don’t mind them doing this as long as this time they tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

"Soros must be nearby"

Jones's operation was also funded by a small group of billionaires, including left-wing philanthropist George Soros. Jones told the FBI in March 2017 that between 7 and 10 billionaires had put up $50 million to continue an investigation into Russian meddling in elections. ---- ----REPORT: Former Feinstein Staffer Found Linked Trump/Russia Scheme Involving Soros and Fusion GPS KAGFEED [Keep America Great] ^ | October 9, 2018 Posted by UMCRevMom@aol.com

… Details of Jones's operation were first revealed by Adam Waldman, a U.S.-based lawyer for Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. A close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Deripaska had also previously hired Steele for work on a legal case. Steele had been in communication with Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr regarding Deripaska's visa to the U.S. The New York Times has reported that Steele and Ohr were part of a U.S. government operation aimed at flipping Deripaska. Waldman told both The Daily Caller News Foundation as well as the Senate Intelligence Committee that he met with Jones on March 17, 2017. During the meeting, Jones told Waldman that Soros was one of the financiers of the Democracy Integrity Project’s investigation. He also said that Fusion GPS was involved. A spokesman for Soros recently confirmed Soros's involvement, telling Washington Post columnist David Ignatius that Soros indirectly funded Fusion GPS through the Democracy Integrity Project. ------------------REPORT: Former Feinstein Staffer Found Linked Trump/Russia Scheme Involving Soros and Fusion GPS KAGFEED [Keep America Great] ^ | October 9, 2018 Posted by UMCRevMom@aol.com
