Despite overwhelming evidence the Clinton campaign colluded with the Kremlin during the 2016 election, the political class and media elites continue to push the ‘RussiaGate’ hysteria.
Philip Giraldi, a former CIA agent, believes the Russian collusion narrative was manufactured by the Clinton campaign.

Philip Giraldi writes for the Daily Caller:
As a former intelligence officer who has seen numerous overseas investigations done for clients, I can say with some confidence that the Steele Dossier is a composite of some fact, a lot of speculation, and even occasional fiction. Some indisputable and confirmable information is inevitably used to provide credibility for a lot of speculation and false stories that were intended to sow doubt and confusion.
The dossier was designed to dig up “dirt” on Trump and his associates, but, more to the point, it was clearly intended from the start to do so by manufacturing and nurturing a Russian angle. It sought to discredit Donald Trump and to deceive the public, which suggests that Trump has been right all along regarding something like a conspiracy against him which included the active participation of the FBI and possibly other national security agencies.
The president also comes across as credible vis-à-vis his critics because of what has become evident since the dossier was surfaced. The clearly politically motivated multiple investigations carried out so far in which no rock has been unturned have come up with absolutely nothing, either in the form of criminal charges or in terms of actual collusion with a foreign government. And, one might add, there has been little in the way of evidence to sustain the charge that Russia sought to influence the election and might even have succeeded in doing so. But there is one thing new that we do know now: Russiagate began within the Clinton Campaign headquarters.
Clinton Inc. is on the defense after the Washington Post’s bombshell report revealing Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the DNC paid for the now discredited ‘Trump Dossier.’ This week, Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallow admitted to CNN that Hillary Clinton ‘may have known,’ about her campaign paying for the ‘Trump Dossier.’
A nervous Fallon claims he doesn’t know how much Clinton knew about the document’s funding.

CNN’S POPPY HARLOW: “Just to be clear, Brian, you have said previously in the last 24 hours you don’t believe Hillary Clinton knew about this? Is that right?”
HILLARY SPOX BRIAN FALLON: ““Oh, I don’t know, I haven’t asked, I haven’t spoken to her.”
CNN’S POPPY HARLOW: “You don’t know .. okay, thank you for clarifying. Shouldn’t she know, shouldn’t you, someone so high up in the campaign be informed of this?”
HILLARY SPOX BRIAN FALLON: “Well, I mean, she may have known, but the degree of exactly what she knew is, is, is beyond my knowledge….going out and finding Fusion GPS, finding Christopher Steele, I mean, she may or may not of been aware of that level of detail, I don’t know, ”
As Kristinn Taylor reported earlier on The Gateway Pundit the WaPo reported this week that 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.
On Tuesday evening, reports revealed the FBI under James Comey agreed to reimburse the Clinton campaign and DNC for money it spent on the opposition research. It is highly plausible FBI documents will reveal the degree to which Hillary Clinton may or may not have known about funding the ‘Trump Dossier.’ According to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), the FBI has now agreed to comply with a request to hand over all dossier-related documents. According to CBS News, Hillary Clinton only learned about the ‘Trump Dosser,’ following BuzzFeed’s report on the now discredited documents.
