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.
A slight correction. There was a Republican individual (name forgotten), who originally hired Fusion GPS to find information on Trump et al. Then he ended the contract with Fusion because nothing was being produced.
Possibly a few weeks or months went by before DNC/Hillary got Fusion to work with Steele who apparently had been shopping his “Russian sourced collusion materials” all over the US including Sen.John McCain, who took the bait and the dossier.
I’m losing my ability to remember all the sleazeballs on the Left who were involved in the fake Steele dossier affair.
