Liberal Media Already Downplaying Trump Dossier Revelations


Mainstream liberal media outlets are downplaying or outright misinforming the public about the recent findings of the so-called Trump Dossier.

It was recently discovered that the DNC, as well as the Clinton campaign, were the ones funding the dossier which allegedly ties Trump to Russia.

Clinton campaign lawyer Marc E. Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie hired the company Fusion GPS in April of last year during the campaign trail to investigate the unfounded Trump connection. They involved former British spy, Christopher Steele, to help. The Steele dossier, as it’s also known, was reportedly used by the FBI to form its investigation.

With that… many journalists are attempting to misguide the public about it’s finding. Let’s take a look at some now.

As reported by Amber Athey for The Daily Caller:

Dan Gillmor, a journalism professor, tweeted that “GOP started” the funding for the dossier, which is inaccurate. An anonymous GOP donor paid Fusion GPS for standard opposition research, but bowed out before Fusion ever hired Steele to create the dossier alleging Trump ties to Russia.

Brian Fallon, a CNN contributor and former Clinton spokesman, also conflated the payment for opposition research with the funding of the dossier. In further tweets, Fallon insisted the contents of the dossier were the important part of the story despite the fact that most of it remains unconfirmed.

An executive producer for MSNBC’s Velshi & Ruhle was desperate to pedal as far from the DNC and Clinton funding as possible in a tweet she sent to the president. She also incorrectly claimed the dossier was first funded by Republicans, and pointed out that Donald Trump Jr. once met with a Russian lawyer in the hopes of getting “dirt on Clinton.”

…………………..

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. It’s happening all over! This should get fun!
