DNC PANICS – Denies Involvement in Trump-Russia Dossier in Awkward Response

The Washington Post published a bombshell on the discredited Trump dossier on Tuesday.

As Kristinn Taylor reported earlier on The Gateway Pundit the WaPo article claims the 2016 presidential campaign of Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid for the Fusion GPS dossier alleging Russian ties with the presidential campaign of Republican Donald Trump and sordid phony personal smears of Trump.The Post reported that Clinton campaign and DNC lawyer Marc Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS to continue researching Trump after a Republican donor who originally funded the research pulled out in April 2016.

The DNC responded to WaPo’s bombshell report claiming the DNC was involved in the funding of the debunked dossier through a spokesperson.

In true Democrat fashion, the DNC split hairs by saying:

Tom Perez and the new leadership of the DNC were not involved in any decision-making regarding Fusion GPS, nor were they aware that Perkins Coie was working with the organization. But let’s be clear, there is a serious federal investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, and the American public deserves to know what happened.”

So the new leadership had nothing to do with the dossier? What about the old leadership? It sounds like the DNC is throwing the DNC under the bus.

It’s also fun to watch the DNC try to distract by bringing up the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory in order to distract from the media firestorm currently battering Obama and Clinton over the Uranium One scandal.

 

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story said the DNC made a statement in a press release. They actually made a statement through a spokesperson to the Washington Post.
