Another layer of the rotten onion that is Washington D.C. has been uncovered. Check out the following from a just-released report by The Federalist:
Since April of 2016, Obama’s campaign organization has paid nearly a million dollars to the law firm that funneled money to Fusion GPS to compile a dossier of unverified allegations against Donald Trump.
Former president Barack Obama’s official campaign organization has directed nearly a million dollars to the same law firm that funneled money to Fusion GPS, the firm behind the infamous Steele dossier. Since April of 2016, Obama For America (OFA) has paid over $972,000 to Perkins Coie, records filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show.
The Washington Post reported last week that Perkins Coie, an international law firm, was directed by both the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to retain Fusion GPS in April of 2016 to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump.
…OFA, Obama’s official campaign arm in 2016, paid nearly $800,000 to Perkins Coie in 2016 alone, according to FEC records. The first 2016 payments to Perkins Coie, classified only as “Legal Services,” were made April 25-26, 2016, and totaled $98,047. A second batch of payments, also classified as “Legal Services,” were disbursed to the law firm on September 29, 2016, and totaled exactly $700,000. Payments from OFA to Perkins Coie in 2017 totaled $174,725 through August 22, 2017.
FEC records as well as federal court records show that Marc Elias, the Perkins Coie lawyer whom the Washington Post reported was responsible for the payments to Fusion GPS on behalf of Clinton’s campaign and the DNC, also previously served as a counsel for OFA. In Shamblin v. Obama for America, a 2013 case in federal court in Florida, federal court records list Elias as simultaneously serving as lead attorney for both OFA and the DNC.
Let us summarize the above increasingly troubling picture:
***The law firm hired to initiate the false Trump dossier during a presidential campaign was receiving funding by the then sitting President of the United States. This same law firm has strong ties not only to Obama for America, but the DNC.
***The Obama White House used the fake dossier that it helped to finance to order the illegal surveillance of the Trump campaign. A sitting president was spying on an opposing candidate via the taxpayer-funded resources of the FBI, CIA, etc. This kind of act is stunningly illegal.
***Now a bit of explanation on why such activities so often utilize the services of law firms. The Clintons have been particularly adept at this practice over the years. Those in power use law firms in order to establish attorney-client privilege. It is a powerful wall of defense against investigations – a firewall if you will. Barack Obama appears to have been working hand-in-hand with Hillary Clinton and Perkins Cole to attack then-candidate and later President-Elect, Donald Trump and using taxpayer funds to do so.
The above story is the first verifiable link between Barack Obama and the growing stink of the fake Trump dossier. Whispers suggest more such links are soon to follow. It should be the #1 news story at this moment but the Establishment Media is doing all it can to push these revelations aside. Don’t let them succeed. Educate. Share. Enlighten.
