Anyone who isn’t a victim of the fake news mainstream media and the propaganda that is constantly being shot out across the airwaves knows that the whole Trump-Russia scandal was a bunch of baloney from the start. It was and continues to be nothing more than a phony story manufactured by the progressive left that is rooted in denial, contempt, and bitterness over the 2016 presidential election. Now, new information has come out regarding the pathetic dossier that the left tried to push just days before the election, and once again, the liberals have found themselves in hot water.
As The Washington Times reports, Fusion GPS, which is the company that funded the research into the dossier via money from the Clinton campaign, is currently fighting a House committee chairman’s bid to determine whether or not the opposition research firm paid journalists to help advance the dossier’s narrative. Specifically, Devin Nunes, a Republican Representative for the state of California and chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, wants to know who paid for the dossier, and whether left-wing reporters within the mainstream media were financially bribed to cover a story that they knew was illegitimate. (Related: Congressional investigations are closing in on the massive Obama-Clinton corruption behind the phony Trump dossier.)
After Representative Nunes signed a subpoena forcing a bank to turn over all of Fusion’s financial records, Fusion GPS attempted to block the move in federal court, only to be interrupted by the law firm Perkins Coie LLP, whose partner Marc E. Elias is the Clinton campaign’s general counsel. The law firm filed a letter acknowledging that it had paid Fusion GPS for research into the dossier on behalf of the Democrat Party. As of right now, it seems as though the Democrats are guilty of doing what they do best – spreading false, unsubstantiated information. But were leftists within the mainstream media paid to report on the dossier? (Related: Yes, the Russian dossier story is a very big deal, and here is why.)
If they did, it certainly wouldn’t be surprising. With the exception of Fox News, virtually every single media outlet has decided to completely abandon journalism and instead focus on destroying President Trump and his administration at all costs, even if it means lying to the American people and manufacturing phony scandals. It’s sad, but things like integrity and trustworthiness no longer matter to the hosts and producers at CNN, ABC, MSNBC and others; in fact, those qualities are now seen as nothing more than obstacles that get in their way. It’s all about destroying the political opposition, not facts and accurate information.
But even when they are exposed as liars and propagandists, the liberals never stop. According to the Daily Mail, several sources now claim that Hillary Clinton is in secret negotiations with Christopher Steele, the original author of the dossier, to purchase yet another report that allegedly contains new claims about President Trump and his supposed ties to the Russian government.
Sources claim that the negotiations with Christopher Steele that are going on behind closed doors are being carried out by former Clinton aides who are still angry and bitter over the fact that Hillary lost to Donald Trump last November. “Hillary’s people have been secretly in touch with Steele and are close to making a deal with him on opposition research that he claims has newly surfaced from his Russian sources,” explained a longtime Clinton adviser, adding, “Steele didn’t release this information before now because it wasn’t available to him when he put together his first dossier.”
If this second dossier gains traction, then we can all expect to see that same old song and dance yet again – the mainstream media will report on it day and night, and then by the time its revealed that the entire report is a bunch of nonsense, the liberals will already be moving on to something new.
And so it goes.
