What do we really know about the unsubstantiated dossier?

Ever since its “leaking” by Buzzfeed in January, the Steele dossier has caused a lot of controversies (and some cute memes). What do we really know about this dossier? If you ask conservatives, they will say that most of it had been discredited. If you ask liberals, they will say that its claims had been proven.

As a distraction from finding the truth about the dossier, the Republicans are investigating who funded it. If anybody is surprised that Clinton and the DNC were behind it, either they have an incredibly short memory or their head is firmly up their asses (to put it kindly).

Firm behind Trump dossier declines to respond to House panel’s subpoena

The U.S. political research firm that commissioned a dossier on Donald Trump while he was running for president said on Monday it would not comply with subpoenas issued by the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee.

The Republicans should be careful. This may be a case where they better be careful what they wish for. If they get what they want and force Fusion GPS to reveal their clients and it creates a legal precedent, it will come back to haunt them.

Clinton, the DNC and the making of the ‘Trump dossier’ — what we know

The long probe into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election took another turn this week when it was revealed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign helped fund the creation of the controversial Trump dossier.

John Podesta says he didn’t know the Clinton campaign was paying Fusion GPS. Why not?

CNN’s Manu Raju and Jeremy Herb just reported this important nugget from the ongoing investigation into who paid an opposition research firm to put together a dossier on Donald Trump:

Who was paying for Fusion GPS’ work during the GOP primary?

The big news of a very busy week in Washington is that Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee funded the collection of dirt on Donald Trump via a firm called Fusion GPS.
