Anatomy of a Smear: Biggest Dirty Trick of All Time. How Hillary Paid for Russian Dossier Then Used FBI/CIA to Attack Trump.

This house of cards is about to come crashing down!

The Washington Post broke the story Tuesday night. The Clinton campaign paid for the infamous Russian dossier that supposedly linked Trump to Russian collusion.  The post reports: "Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research." This is the same Elias who lied repeatedly to reporters about the funding.  Needless to say, reporters at the New York Times who carried that water are now upset that they were used:

The fake dossier was used to initiate FBI and CIA investigations and may have provided the basis for obtaining wiretaps of Trump and associates. It also was a factor in appointing a Special Prosecutor to investigate Trump.

In summarizing the findings, NY Post columnist Michael Goodwin wrote:
The Post report provides possible answers to other questions, too. Because Clinton’s team paid for the dossier, it’s likely that she gave it to the FBI, where James Comey planned to hire the former British agent who had compiled it to keep digging dirt on Trump.

The finding also raises the possibility that the dossier is what led the Obama White House to snoop on members of Trump’s team, and leak the “unmasked” names to the anti-Trump media in a bid to help Clinton.

In short, we now have compelling evidence that the dossier was the largest and dirtiest dirty trick of the 2016 campaign. And Clinton, who has played the victim card ever since her loss, was behind it the whole time.

Anybody surprised? Me neither.
No, I'm not surprised. To prove that we're on to something here we have Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD). This is the same Member of Congress who can be counted on to dismiss every Democrat misdeed. Cummings called these revelations a "distraction" that takes away from his and fellow Dem's efforts to continue the smear campaign of lies. Bought and paid for!


P.S. As you might imagine there is the potential for other shoes to drop in this unfolding hyper-scandal. Perhaps one of the biggest is the role the FBI played in this episode.  As the Washington Post reported in February we know the FBI had considered paying to continue the smear process during a presidential campaign. What other actions did they take? Why are they stonewalling Congressional committees whose job it is to oversee the Bureau?
