The unexpected revelation that Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee had helped in the funding of the vague documents against Donald Trump in the last year has thrilled lawmakers and the media to ask some of the tough questions about how the false documents were used by top levels of law enforcement of the United States and at the same time another question of why the Democrats lied about its origins. In the middle of a court case, that threatened to reveal the funding of the vague documents it was revealed overnight that the political consulting firm Fusion GPS was retained in the previous year by Marc E. Elias, who is an attorney representing the DNC and the Clinton campaign. This particular firm then hired the previous British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to write the now infamous dossier.
The Washington Post was the first one to report on the connections which were later confirmed by Fox News. Not only did the Clinton campaign and the DNC provide the firm with the required funding through the end of October 2016, but also the FBI reportedly arranged to pay the British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to proceed with intelligence gathering on Donald Trump and Russia after he won in the election. That deal was later canceled after the former intelligence officer was identified in news reports. The Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Trey Gowdy stated on Wednesday that his biggest questions are of the concern to what extent the FBI depended on that document to launch its Russia probe. Republican congressman weigh in on the questions that surrounded the controversial document and who provided the required funds.
Trey Gowdy has told Fox News that his main focus has always been on whether the Justice Department and the FBI had depended on the un-sourced CI document or not to start off with a counterintelligence investigation. He also said that he wanted to know whether the top law enforcement agency of the nation trusted the document that looks like the National Enquirer had prepared it. At the same time, he was under serious doubt that if they relied upon an un-sourced, un-vetted document for the launching of a really important investigation and if it was so then the country is big enough to handle that truth as well.
