Trump wonders why Dems ‘know nothing’ about millions spent for dossier


President Donald Trump’s latest tweets on Monday morning illustrate his increasing frustration with lawmakers from both sides of the aisle who claim no knowledge of who approved the millions of dollars in funding that was given to Fusion GPS, which later created a debunked dossier on Trump.

“Report out that Obama Campaign paid $972,000 to Fusion GPS. The firm also got $12,400,000 (really?) from DNC. Nobody knows who OK’d?” Trump tweeted Monday morning.

He also tweeted, “Great job,” to his former advisor Michael Caputo who appeared on “Fox and Friends” to talk about the scandal, which was initiated by The Washington Free Beacon.

“It’s sounds like collusion to me,” Caputo said on the show, pointing out that the Clinton campaign hired spies to acquire false information on Trump from Russian spies. Democrats and liberal media outlets are now calling the dossier “opposition research” in an effort to play down the former administration’s real attempts to collude with the Russians.

A report from last week confirmed that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid $12.4 million to Perkins Coie law firm, while Obama for America gave $972,000.

In another bombshell development, it was announced on Friday, by conservative media outlet The Washington Free Beacon, that it was the mystery organization that had retained Fusion GPS “to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary.”

The statement was written by editor in chief Matthew Continetti, who maintained that they had nothing to do with ex-spy Christopher Steele or the dossier, which was ultimately published by BuzzFeed and determined to be mostly “fake news.”

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign spokesman, Brian Fallon, said last week that “she may have known, but the degree of exactly what she knew is beyond my knowledge,” while anonymous sources are telling reporters that she only learned about the dossier when it was published in January by BuzzFeed. Clinton herself remains silent on the matter.

Current DNC chairman Tom Perez and the new leadership of the DNC have all claimed ignorance and say they were not involved in any decision-making regarding Fusion GPS.

A spokesman for then-DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, D-Fla., told Fox News last week that “she did not have any knowledge of this arrangement.”

President Trump called the project a “disgrace” last week and announced that the tables have now turned on the Democrats in the “Russia hoax.”

“This whole Russia thing…this was the Democrats coming up with an excuse for losing the election,” Trump told reporters. “They lost it and they lost very badly. And they didn’t know what to say, so they made up the whole Russia hoax.”

Trump’s tweet on Monday is an exasperated reiteration of his oft-repeated innocence: “There is NO COLLUSION!”
