The shady organization of opposition researches behind the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ were reportedly financed well beyond the 2016 presidential election, according to Fox News.
The bombshell revelation was contained in the recently released House Intelligence Committee’s report on Russian election interference; saying US officials determined that a former staffer for Sen. Dianne Feinstein “secured the services” of the dossier author after Trump’s electoral victory.
“According to the House Intelligence Committee report, Daniel J. Jones – the president of the Penn Quarter Group and a former staffer for Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein – ‘secured the services’ of dossier author and former British spy Christopher Steele ‘to continue exposing Russian interference’ after the election,” writes Fox News.
The report doesn’t name who helped finance Fusion GPS or Christopher Steele, but says approximately 10 “wealthy donors” provided roughly $50 million to the organization.

ADAM’S ADMISSION: Schiff Memo ACTUALLY CONFIRMS FBI’s Misuse of ‘Trump Dossier’
Ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff released his highly-anticipated “rebuttal” to Rep. Devin Nunes’ bombshell FISA report over the weekend; inadvertently confirming the FBI’s use of the ‘Trump Dossier’ to obtain surveillance warrants.
According to former assistant US attorney Andrew McCarthy, Schiff’s report details the bureau’s use of Christopher Steele’s shady dossier to obtain FISA warrants against the Trump campaign, saying the Democrat “rebuttal” shows the “FBI and Justice Department heavily relied on the Steel Dossier’s uncorroborated allegations.”
“You know this is true because, notwithstanding the claim that ‘only narrow use’ was made ‘of information from Steele’s sources,’ the Democrats end up acknowledging that ‘only narrow use’ actually means significant use,” writes McCarthy in the National Review.
Schiff’s memo comes weeks after Nunes released his four-page bombshell report that raised serious questions over how the DOJ used the Clinton-financed Trump dossier to obtain FISA warrants against at least one Trump associate.
Congressional leaders -such as Sen. Chuck Grassley- have vowed to get to the bottom of whether former Obama officials used the shady document to illegally spy on the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.

CLINTON COLLUSION: FBI Given SECOND DOSSIER by Longtime Clinton Aide
The FBI’s never-ending investigation into allegations the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials has received a second anti-Trump dossier from a longtime Clinton insider; raising further questions over the DNC’s secretive role in the ongoing probe.
According to the Guardian, the Department of Justice was given the unconfirmed material by Cody Shearer, a former journalist with close connections to President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State -and President Trump’s opponent in the 2016 election- Hillary Clinton.
“The second memo was written by Cody Shearer, a controversial political activist and former journalist who was close to the Clinton White House in the 1990s,” writes the Guardian. “Unlike Steele, Shearer does not have a background in espionage, and his memo was initially viewed with skepticism, not least because he had shared it with select media organizations before the election.
The revelation comes as Congressional investigators and lawmakers struggle to find answers regarding the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
This week, the House Intelligence Committee voted to release a bombshell FISA memo, reportedly showing widespread abuse of FISA courts to surveil on American citizens -even those with close ties to the Trump campaign.
It’s unclear if the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ served as the basis for these FISA warrants.
