Trump responds to dossier revelation: I'm the victim here

Trump responds to dossier revelation: I'm the victim here

A source familiar with the matter told CNN on Tuesday that the law firm Perkins Coie, as part of its representation of the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained the intelligence firm Fusion GPS and entered "into an engagement for research services that began in April 2016 and concluded before the election in early November". The letter was filed with the court on Tuesday. Such arguments are now going to run wild, probably via much encouragement by the Tweeter-in-Chief, who speculated just the other day that "Russia, FBI or the Dems" may have paid for the "discredited and Fake Dossier".

But the biggest revelation from the Washington Post report is the direct link between the Clinton campaign and the lawyer who retained Fusion GPS, which later funded the dossier. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS's research into Trump was funded by an unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.

Candidates routinely conduct opposition research, Fallon pointed out, although the dossier stands out for its detailed exploration of Trump's possible business ties to Moscow - as well as unsubstantiated and salacious allegations about his alleged conduct in a Moscow hotel room. "But let's be clear, there is a serious federal investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, and the American public deserves to know what happened", said DNC communications director Xochitl Hinojosa.

According to a statement from the DNC's communications director, the new chairman and leadership were "not involved in any decision-making regarding Fusion GPS".

Gallup Finds Record Support for Legalizing Marijuana, Including Most Republicans
For the first time since that 1969 poll, a majority of Republican voters told Gallup they are in favor of legalizing marijuana. The number is the highest level of support in almost half a century of surveying adults on the issue, according to Gallup .

New York Times reporter Ken Vogel took to Twitter to accuse Elias of previously denying involvement in the Trump dossier shortly after the Washington Post report was released.

"I have no idea what Fusion or Steele were paid but if even a shred of that dossier ends up helping (Justice Department special counsel Robert) Mueller, it will prove money well spent", he tweeted. "But let's be clear, there is a serious federal investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, and the American public deserves to know what happened", the statement reads. Wait-didn't Republicans start this operation as an opposition research effort?

Still, the president and his supporters have seized on the new details about the DNC-Clinton role to push their view that the various Russian Federation investigations - from Capitol Hill to Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller - are based on a fraudulent, politically inspired hit job. "Who paid for it, Russia, the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Dems (or all)?".

It contains a series of lewd allegations about the president's personal life and detailed deep financial ties between Trump and high-ranking Russian officials.

Last week, an attorney for Fusion GPS sent a letter to the House Intelligence Committee that suggested it has no plans to cooperate with its investigation.

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee, which is probing Russia's election role, have done so as well. I think I would know but let's find out who it is.

The dossier created a political firestorm in January when it was revealed that then-FBI Director James Comey had alerted Trump to the existence of allegations about him and Russian Federation.
