Hillary paid for infamous dossier on Trump: Her campaign lawyer funded dirty tricks firm's research into his Russian links which came up with discredited claims --Campaign lawyer Marc Elias hired research firm Fusion GPS back in April 2016 --Research firm then hired ex-British spy Christopher Steele, who wrote the dossier, to dig up the dirt on Trump | 25 Oct 2017 | Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped bankroll research that led to the [sexual] dossier on Donald Trump. Clinton's campaign lawyer Marc Elias hired research firm Fusion GPS back in April 2016 to look into allegations of Trump's ties to Russia, according to the Washington Post. Fusion GPS, the Washington-based research firm, then hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to dig up the unconfirmed dirt on Trump. Clinton's lawyer and his law firm Perkins Coie continued to fund the research until October 2016 - just days before the presidential election. The research was previously funded by an unknown anti-Trump Republican donor during the primary, but Clinton's campaign then paid for it to be finished. Sources would not confirm how much was paid to Fusion GPS, but said the campaign and DNC shared the cost.
