Speaking of reckless and undignified...

Not really surprising.

Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier


By Adam Entous, Devlin Barrett and Rosalind S. HeldermanOctober 24 at 6:21 PM

The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about Donald Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.

Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research.

After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to the people.

Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the firm in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Prior to that agreement, Fusion GPS’s research into Trump was funded by a still unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.

The Clinton campaign and the DNC through the law firm continued to fund Fusion GPS’s research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.

Fusion GPS gave Steele’s reports and other research documents to Elias, the people familiar with the matter said. It is unclear how or how much of that information was shared with the campaign and DNC, and who in those organizations was aware of the roles of Fusion GPS and Steele. One person close to the matter said the campaign and the DNC weren’t informed of Fusion GPS’s role by the law firm.

Our fine nation deserves so much better than what these hacks have to offer.

Seems D.C. is not really a swamp...but more a failed sewage disposal field.

Christopher David Steele was born in Aden, Federation of South Arabia, on 24 June 1964.[1][4] He attended Girton College, Cambridge and wrote for the oldest of Cambridge University's main student newspapers, Varsity.[5] In the Easter term of 1986, Steele was President of The Cambridge Union.[6][7] He was known as a "confirmed Socialist",[4][8] and graduated with a degree in Social and Political Sciences in 1986.[9]

Talk about collusion....collusion a fancy word for conspiracy

Did Colin Kaepernick start this collusion word popularity with his lawsuit

Hence the reason I am an outspoken critic of contracting especially to a corrupt government and becoming an extension of their corrupt policy

Did we not learn from all of the communist infiltrators into British Intelligence agencies over the years? Their's were educated at and recruited from Oxbridge. Here we have Yalevard.

You ask that question as though a large percentage of the 60 million Americans that voted for hilLary clint0n are even interested in learning anything.

If my goal is to see you burn your hand on the stove, watching people burn hands on stoves is NOT going to have any impact on the way I manage 'stove-safety' in my home...
...lesson NOT learned - I WANT YOU to burn your hand.
I want you to burn your hand so I can sell you my personal brand of burn cream.

It isn't about learning a lesson - it is about discrediting the lesson so that "YOU" are never able to learn it in the first place.

Far out.

That's on par with finding that a singer had "friends" he alleges were current & former CIA that asked him to put the dossier conclusions "out there" 'cause he had a big social media following. I sense there should be another subpoena in order.

Jeez, these threads are starting to morph into the overall coup attempt of recent memory. Chipstacks are a bit higher than the Ukraine.

I was watching the news today, and it has come to my attention that the president doesn't eat enough chicken. He isn't crazy (his doc said so) but there may or may not be cause for him to be sedated during his next colonoscopy if he so desires.


Journalism as a profession has jumped the shark. I listed to some of these clowns ask some of the most dip-shit questions ever queried about a presidents health.


Prison camps are in order.

Lol, working in D.C. these days must be like standing behind a bull who just ingested a fist full of Dulcolax washed down with a gallon of magnesium citrate chaser...
