Liberals and the Democrats have a lot to answer for. 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 Steeles and the opposition research firm Fusion GPS. That report doesnt 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.
