That’s according to the "Washington Post," who is reporting that beginning in April 2016 until the election in early November, a lawyer for the Clinton campaign hired the firm Fusion GPS to conduct research on Trump. Before that, an unknown Republican had used the same firm to conduct research on Trump during the GOP primaries.
The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. It included details about Trump's links to Russia as well as claims that the Russian government had compromising information about him. The reaction? Depends what side of the aisle you travel on.
Taking to Twitter, White House press secretary Sarah Sanderssays the news of the Clinton campaign and DNC funding the dossier research was "the real Russia scandal.”Clinton campaign's national press secretary-turned CNN political contributor Brian Fallon tweeted that he wasn't aware of the campaign’s reported connection to the Steele dossier and adds, “If I had, I would have volunteered to go to Europe and try to help him.”At press time, there was no comment from Hillary Clinton
