This week has been a disaster for many members of former Obama administration and in particular Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton. And a reliably Left-wing hack ‘news’ site may have inadvertently started it all months ago when it published a long-ago-discredited “dossier” on President Donald J. Trump.
Without a doubt, notes the New York Post, as political dirty tricks go, the dossier on Trump was one of the dirtiest ever:
— We know it was largely financed by the campaign of Hillary Clinton and her Democratic National Committee sponsors.
— We know it was commissioned by a Democrat-leaning political opposition research firm named Fusion GPS.
— We know that the dossier’s author, former British spy Christopher Steele, was fed information from Russian operatives to put in the document.
But what we didn’t know and couldn’t know at the time was that the dossier — which was published in full by Buzzfeed earlier this year despite the fact that nothing in its 35 pages had been corroborated — would eventually help bring down one of the most criminally investigated couples on the planet. (Related: Fusion GPS founders plead the Fifth at House Intelligence hearing regarding questions over BOGUS “Trump dossier.”)
And it might even snag a few more Obama administration officials too before all is said and done.
As the Post noted, just as congressional panels begin new investigations into all of the Obama administration shenanigans during last year’s presidential election cycle, the revelation that Team Clinton actually helped finance the dossier — paying, with the DNC, as much as $9 million — essentially flips the “Russian collusion” narrative on its ear.
It’s not Trump who colluded, it was Clinton, the DNC, and the Obama regime.
A Washington Post story contains many of these new revelations while traveling some distance to explain just how the dossier was spread among establishment media outlets and journalists last year, likely meaning that Team Clinton passed it around lavishly to its media pals in hopes that it would grow legs.
And it nearly did because, for months, news agencies actually did try to verify as much of the dossier’s allegations and salacious claims as possible — but to no avail. The document only became public after Buzzfeed decided to publish it in full, just 10 days before Trump’s inauguration, in a bid no doubt to taint his presidency from the get-go.
Follow-on reporting this week, however, helps Buzzfeed essentially prove only one thing: That the document, while containing phony information, is inextricably tied to the Clinton campaign and, of course, Hillary Clinton.
Had the document never been published, then the narrative that Team Trump was in cahoots with Moscow would have never been deemed credible, and the follow-on “outrage” by Clinton — who has claimed for months that Trump and Russia “stole the election” from her — and others would now not seem like the greatest example of hypocrisy and political chicanery in the history of the republic.
Make no mistake, someone is out to set up Clinton and those tied to her on this, otherwise the information would never have been leaked to the Post. And I can only guess the reason why. But the fact is, the Russian “collusion” narrative regarding Trump has now been completely debunked. It was Clinton and Democrats who were always behind it, meaning — by the way — that Trump was right all along in calling it a ‘Democratic hit job.’
“I think it’s a disgrace,” the president said in May. “The dossier has been totally discredited, No. 1. No. 2, [House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] is totally partisan, as partisan as you can get. And No. 3, the Russia story is a fake story. It was made up so that they can justify the fact that Hillary Clinton lost an election that a Democrat should not lose because it’s almost impossible for a Democrat to lose the Electoral College.”
Thanks, Buzzfeed, for finally helping Americans close in on Hillary Clinton and her enabler husband.
