So on this blog, I’ve tried to cover the origins of the fake Steele dossier that was used by the FBI to obtain a FISA warrant spy on the Trump campaign. I’ve talked about the role of the Democrat-supporting law firm Perkins Coie, and the Democrat-backed opposition research firm Fusion GPS. But now we have information about George Soros’ role in the scandal.
Here’s the latest from The Federalist:
A left-wing group backed by billionaire Democratic mega-donor George Soros that falsely claims to fight disinformation paid nearly seven figures to individuals behind the discredited Steele dossier, a Clinton campaign-funded disinformation document, new documents show.
Public IRS tax filings reveal the group paid a total of $926,000 to firms connected to former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier, and Fusion GPS, the Democrat-backed consulting firm that sponsored the opposition research.
[…]According to the newly released Democracy Integrity Project’s IRS 990 form for fiscal year 2020, the self-purported crusaders against disinformation paid $521,000 to Steele’s British firm, Walsingham Partners, and $405,000 to D.C.-based Fusion GPS as independent contractors.
In 2017, the group paid more than $3.8 million to the two firms behind the conspiracy at its height, according to The Daily Caller, which was “more than three times what the DNC and the Clinton campaign paid Fusion GPS and Steele during the 2016 presidential campaign.” That same year, the same Democracy Integrity Project meddled in the Alabama special election Senate race using Russian disinformation techniques.
This scandal is quite serious, and some of the Democrats responsible are facing legal consequences for using government as a weapon against Republicans:
Those culpable in the years-long Russia collusion hoax are just now beginning to suffer legal consequences after avoiding them for years.
In early November, Steele’s primary sub-source, Igor Danchenko, became the third arrested over the course of an independent probe in the Justice Department conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham. In October, Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann was indicted on false statements to the FBI made in September 2016.
At the beginning of the year, former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith was virtually let off the hook with one year probation and 400 hours of community service for falsifying documents to obtain spy warrants on the Trump campaign.
Let’s review the Clinton campaign and DNC role in the Steele dossier.
The far-left Washington Post explains:
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.
That’s from the far-left Washington Post.
I think it’s important that everyone is clear about what happened. The mainstream news media allied with Big Tech social media companies to keep this all quiet during the 2020 election campaign. They wanted everyone to trust the Democrats and the FBI. But we’re learning more and more every day about how corrupt the Democrats are. We’re learning who is behind all of their disinformation efforts. We’re learning how they interfere in our elections. We should never vote for these corrupt, power-hungry people to rule over us.
