3 Shadiest Facts And Details About Hillary Clinton And DNC Connection To Russia And Trump Steele Dossier

Bad news for Hillary Clinton supporters.

By now, you’ve probably heard all about the Steele Dossier — you know, that now-infamous report detailing Donald’s Trump’s shady dealings with Russia.

The Steele Dossier (especially the pee pee tapes) has given the left a ton of ammunition for smearing the right’s dirty campaign and administration, but I have some bad news: new evidence reveals the left is just as guilty.

The Washington Post reported that both the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund the research that went into compiling the Steele Dossier. To break that down, that means that, in order to get intel on Trump’s connection to Russia, they did the same exact thing they’re dragging Trump for.

When the dossier first leaked, Trump’s team called the allegations “absolutely silly.” Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, told Mic, “clearly the person who created this did so from their imagination or did so hoping the liberal media would run with this fake story for whatever rationale they might have.”

Unsurprisingly, that’s exactly what happened (though I wouldn’t go as far as calling the dossier fake news). However, news of Clinton’s connection to Russia and the dossier have gone largely ignored by those on the left. Even worse, some have dismissed the claims as being a normal part of politics even though they’re not backing down on calling out the right for the same practices.

So how, exactly, are Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party connected to Russia? Let me count the ways…

1. The Clinton campaign helped fund the Russia-Trump dossier

The New York Times reported that a law firm representing the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee hired a Washington-based research firm known as Fusion GPS to put together information on Trump during the 2016 Presidential Election. According to a court document, Fusion GPS had already been conducting research (presumably for other Republican candidates during the primary election) which Clinton and the DNC continued funding once Trump became the Republican nominee. Fusion GPS then hired Christopher Steele, and the rest is history.

2. Is the Clinton campaign guilty of collusion?

In July of 2017, Donald Trump Jr. published emails between him and a former reporter who apparently attempted to set Trump Jr. up with a Russian-based lawyer who wanted to provide “incriminating” information on Clinton. The left was immediately up in arms, accusing Trump’s team of collusion with Russia.

According to federal law, it’s illegal for a foreigner to “directly or indirectly” make “a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value” (like, let’s say, incriminating information on an opponent) “in connection with a Federal, State, or local election.” That said, it’s valid for Democrats to be upset about Trump Jr.’s emails.

However, that law makes Clinton’s deal with Fusion GPS and Steele just as shady. While the firm the Clinton campaign hired to compile information on Trump is American-based, Steele is not. The former MI6 agent is a British citizen — A.K.A., a foreigner.

3. The Clinton Foundation may have received Russian money during a 2010 U.S.-Russia uranium deal

Way back in 2015, an article in the New York Times alleged that Russia donated to the Clinton Foundation as they worked to make a deal regarding Russia’s stake in America’s uranium supply while Clinton was Secretary of State. According to the article, the chairman of the Russian uranium company made a total (undisclosed) contribution of over $2 million between 2009 and 2013. CNN reported that House Republicans have started looking into the deal, which Clinton called a distraction tactic.

Trump’s team has also accused Bill Clinton of receiving speaking fees from Russia during the uranium deal. According to a Washington Post article, “Bill Clinton received $500,000 in 2010 for a speech in Moscow from a Russian investment bank that had ties to the Kremlin,” though that has not been proven.
