It seems at every turn, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ends up digging her hole a little deeper. Even the people close to her are starting to lash out in the face of clear evidence of wrongdoing.
In this most recent case, Hillary Clinton’s lawyer was caught trying to kill a story published by The Washington Post. The story centered around the lie-riddled dossier put out by Buzzfeed about President Donald Trump. The Washington Post published a story showing that the DNC paid for the dossier, and despite being called out via Twitter, Clinton’s lawyer Marc Elias continues to push back against the media as well as the public.
The story behind what happened is quite complex, but The Daily Mail does a great outline of the events. Essentially, the evidence does, in fact, lead back to Hillary Clinton and the DNC paying for the creation of the dossier on President Trump.
First, Marc Elias, the lawyer trying to cover all of this up, hired research firm Fusion GPS back in April 2016. It seems as though they were getting their ducks in a row just in case President Trump were to pull off a victory in the election.
Fusion GPS went on to hire Christopher Steele, an ex-British spy who is the author of the dossier after “digging up the dirt,” except he has no evidence.
Elias and his law firm continued funneling money to the research group leading up to the election. Their goal was to cultivate something so juicy that the American people just “had” to believe it.
Once the dossier was created, handed off, and distributed, the reports started to roll in. First, CNN claimed they had the dossier while they did not mention any of the specifics contained in the document.
Buzzfeed, however, released the document in full without fact checking a single piece of the dossier that was put out to the public. The guise seemed to be “You decide,” despite some clear factual inaccuracies.
Now, Kenneth P. Vogel of The New York Times has come out to explain his side of the story. He said, via Twitter, “When I tried to report this story, Clinton campaign lawyer
@marceelias pushed back vigorously, saying “You (or your sources) are wrong.”
Furthermore, Maggie Haberman came out to explain what this story by The Washington Post entails. She stated, also, via Twitter, “Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year,” with a direct link to the story.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer helped facilitate the funding for the creation of the Trump/Russia dossier. Is there any truth to the dossier?
All of this seems to point back to Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer trying to cover-up the evidence contained in this story. One would think that if the DNC was involved, they would want to share the story and point out the factual inaccuracies.
Instead, this is another case of cover-up, and it’s occurring right before Americans’ eyes. Now, with a joint investigation into former-FBI Director James Comey, Hillary Clinton’s emails, and the details concerning the Uranium One deal, more damning answers are expected to surface and the ugly truth will finally be exposed.
