#7. You’ve got the Chron line right and the cast of “usual suspects” re Hillary, the DNC and the Steele dossier.
It was the DNC that paid for CONTINUED research by Steele after the Republican group dropped their work agreement/contract with Steele. Steele was on his own with nothing to show for his work and nobody really interested in it EXCEPT THE DEMOCRATS WHO WEE GOING TO USE IT TO UNDERMINE CANDIDATE TRUMP AND HIS CAMPAIGN.
Remember, Steele had NO ORIGINAL documentation on Trump’s alleged activities in Russia and had to rely on three anonymous Russians who conveniently had “dirt” on Trump. How in the world did they get “it” (whatever crap they were selling to Steele”) because in a police state, you just don’t go out on your own and do investigative journalism and live.
Therefore Steele became the “collusionist” with Russia, the Clinton cabal/organizations and the DNC became the “financial collusionists” with Steele (and possibly the 3 Russian sources - any money given to them?). Nellie Ohr became a “launderer” of information and possibly money to DOJ, Steele, etc, including the NY Times, Yahoo News - Isikoff, possibly Sid Vicious Blumenthal and his criminal gang, her husband at DOJ, maybe even Comey, Clapper, Brennan, etc.
I know I’ve left out other “cut-outs” and launderers but you get my drift.
As the old religious saying goes, “Let the links (circle) be unbroken” and in this case, those links should become prisoner chains and handcuffs for all involved.
two things: there was no preceding rep group per Fusion and two, Hillary loaned the broke DNC money in exchange for complete control
an agreement that “specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised.
