Hillary Clinton doubled-down on her campaign’s role behind the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ on Wednesday night, saying she paid big bucks to opposition research firm Fusion GPS because of their valuable “research.”
Hillary was speaking with the Daily Show’s Trevor Noah when he pressed the former presidential nominee over her financing of the debunked report.
“People say, ‘Hillary, is there a difference between your team paying for this opposition research and Donald Trump’s people working with the Russians to influence the election?’ Is there a difference?” asked Noah.
“Of course, there is. Most serious people understand that,” said Clinton. “This was research started by a Republican donor during the Republican primary and then when Trump got the nomination the people doing it came to my campaign lawyer.”
“He’s an experienced lawyer, he knows the law is, he knows what opposition research is. From my perspective, it didn’t come out before the election,” she added.
