BOMBSHELL: Group of Wealthy Donors Paid $50 Million to Fund Trump-Russia Investigation

A bombshell was revealed in the House Intel Panel’s much-anticipated Trump-Russia report which was released Friday morning.

A group of wealthy donors shelled out $50 million to fund the Trump-Russia investigation according to a footnote in the Russia report.

A group of about 7-10 wealthy donors from California (Silicon Valley) and New York spent $50 million to fund a Trump-Russia investigation conducted by none other than Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS and a former staffer for Dem Senator Dianne Feinstein named Daniel Jones.

Christopher Steele, a former British spy, was hired by Fusion GPS to conduct ‘oppo research’ on Donald Trump. Steele then compiled a 35-page dossier from a series of memos he penned alleging Trump commissioned help from Russia in order to win the presidential election.

Hillary Clinton’s camp and the DNC also funded the dossier.

The Russia dossier is complete garbage and has not been verified to this date yet Mueller is using it to conduct his investigation into Trump’s campaign.

The dossier failed to propel Hillary Clinton into the White House.

Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller exclusively reported:

The House report states that in March 2017, Jones told the FBI about a project he is working on with Steele and Fusion GPS that is being funded to the tune of $50 million by 7 to 10 wealthy donors from New York and California.

“In late March 2017, Jones met with FBI regarding PQG, which he described as ‘exposing foreign influence in Western election,’” reads the committee’s report.

“[Redacted] told FBI that PQG was being funded by 7 to 10 wealthy donors located primarily in New York and California, who provided approximately $50 million.”

“[Redacted] further stated that PQG had secured the services of Steele, his associate [redacted], and Fusion GPS to continue exposing Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election,” reads the report, which adds that Jones “planned to share the information he obtained with policymakers…and with the press.”

Jones “also offered to provide PQG’s entire holdings to the FBI,” the report says.

The report cites a transcript of an interview that Jones gave to the FBI. The transcript, known as an FD-302, is dated March 28, 2017.

The Federalist first reported in February a former staffer for Dem Senator Dianne Feinstein, Daniel Jones was working with Fusion GPS.

Who else was Daniel Jones talking to? Top Democrat Senator Mark Warner–yes the same Mark Warner who tried to create a backchannel with Christopher Steele via Adam Waldman, a lobbyist for Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

Fox News first obtained text messages between Senator Warner and Adam Waldman discussing setting a private meeting with Christopher Steele.

According to additional text messages obtained by The Daily Caller, Daniel Jones was also communicating with lobbyist Adam Waldman in March of 2017, and they ultimately met in person.

The Daily Caller reported:

Waldman met with Jones on March 16, 2017.

During that meeting, Waldman says that Jones revealed that he was working with Fusion GPS. Jones also said that a “group of Silicon Valley billionaires and George Soros” were funding the project with Fusion GPS, according to Waldman, who testified to the Senate Intelligence panel on Nov. 3.

The money and effort spent to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president is astounding.

Soros, Obama and Hillary are the root of this attempted coup with the help of the weaponized intel and law enforcement agencies.

The wheels have been turning to remove Trump from office before he was even sworn in on inauguration day.
