Dark Money Org Gave $2 Million To Group Working With Fusion GPS, Steele
The Daily Caller ^ | 03/10/2019 | Chuck Ross

A dark money group based in California contributed $2 million to The Democracy Integrity Project, the organization that has contracted with Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele to investigate President Donald Trump.

The Democracy Integrity Project’s founder, a former staffer for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, has acknowledged to the FBI that the group provides information to the press, lawmakers and investigators.

Fund for a Better Future is the second Democracy Integrity Project donor to have been identified. George Soros gave $1 million to the group.

A dark money group with links to several high-profile liberal activists contributed $2 million to The Democracy Integrity Project, an organization founded by a former Dianne Feinstein staffer that has contracted with Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele to investigate President Donald Trump.

Fund for a Better Future (FBF) donated $2,065,000 to The Democracy Integrity Project (TDIP) in 2017, according to IRS filings reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation. TDIP was founded on Jan. 31, 2017, by Daniel Jones, a consultant who worked for Feinstein, a California Democrat, when she controlled the Senate Intelligence Committee. Jones has disclosed to the FBI that he hired Fusion GPS and Steele, the author of the anti-Trump dossier, to continue an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

He also told an associate that TDIP operated as a “shadow media organization helping the government.” Jones suggested to the associate, Adam Waldman, that his TDIP team planted several anti-Trump articles.

According to a report released by the House Intelligence Committee in April 2018, Jones told the FBI in March 2017 that his group would receive $50 million in funding from seven to 10 wealthy donors from New York and California. TDIP’s tax filings in 2017 show that the group received far less: $9,036,836.

Jones also said that TDIP “planned to share the information he obtained with policymakers … and with the press” and that his group “had secured the services of Steele, his associate [redacted], and Fusion GPS to continue exposing Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.”

Now we begin to see that much of the Senate from both parties were involved in FISA.
If Feinstein was involved, most of the Politician Democrats in San Francisco were involved.

This means Willy Brown, Newsome, Brown.
Most likely it began with Holder.

“Now we begin to see that much of the Senate from both parties were involved in FISA.”

This can be no surprise to anyone. The Political Class Republicans hated Trump perhaps even more than the Democrats. He was engineering a hostile takeover of the highly unpopular, weak, punching bag party. It is also why Trump continues to have to walk a knife’s edge...conviction in the Senate would still not be out of the question.

There are more than enough deep staters on the Republican side of the senate. The endgame of this coup d'état will probably be an impeachment and conviction over the weekend after the Müller Report drops on a Friday afternoon. Voilà, fait accompli! (sorry for all the French lingo)

Don't be ridiculous. He plainly said to smear on trump, not himself.

I think conviction is quite possible.

China Mac only does the Judge Dance to put conservative feathers in his otherwise naked hat. He despises Trump.

Remember that 100% of Senators voted to stay in session to block Trump from recess appointments. 100%. It would only have taken “conservative stalwart” Lee or “libertarian maverick” Paul to single-handedly thwart McConnell and back Trump.

The President has no allies in the Senate. None.

Rush discussed this today: identified an anti group run by an ex FBI agent working for Fienstien. This is all I can find about it.
