REPORT: Top Clinton Aide Says Hillary Knew in 2016 About ‘Russia Dirt Digging on Trump’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.11.20

Recently released testimony from a top Clinton aide shows Hillary knew about ‘Russia Dirt Digging on Trump’ back in 2016; raising new questions on what the former Secretary of State knew about the Russian effort to interfere in the election and the veracity of the so-called ‘Steele Dossier.’

“In recently unsealed testimony to Congress, former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta acknowledged that both he and Hillary Clinton were aware that her campaign had purchase opposition research and was looking for dirt on Donald Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 election,” reports Just the News.

“Podesta’s comments are the most direct acknowledgement about what Donald Trump’s opponent knew in real-time about the effort that ultimately became known as the Steele dossier,” adds the website.

“In a second appearance before the House Intelligence Committee in December 2017, Podesta testified that Clinton likely didn’t know the names of the firm, Fusion GPS, and former British spy Christopher Steele who had conducted the research. But he said she and he were both cognizant of an opposition research effort to connect Trump to business dealings in Russia,” reports Just the News.

BOB’S VERY BAD DAY: Mueller Says He’s ‘Not Familiar’ With Fusion GPS, Firm Behind Steele Dossier

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.24.19

Former special counsel Robert Mueller stunned lawmakers on Capitol Hill during his Congressional testimony Wednesday; telling legislators he was “not familiar” with opposition-research firm Fusion GPS.

“When discussing the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, you reference ‘the firm that produced the Steele reporting.’ The name of that firm was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?” asked Rep. Steve Chabot.

“Page 103. That’s correct- Volume II. When you talk about the firm that produced the Steele reporting, the name of the firm that produced that was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?” pressed Chabot.

“I am not familiar with—with that, I—,” Mueller replied.

“It was. It’s not a trick question. It was Fusion GPS,” Chabot said.

“Steele authored and compiled information for the controversial and unverified anti-Trump dossier on behalf of Fusion GPS — the firm that was hired to conduct opposition research funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign through law firm Perkins Coie,” reports Fox News.

That document was then used to obtain FISA warrants against individuals close to the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Sen. Lindsey Graham weighed-in Wednesday afternoon on Robert Mueller’s “confusing and sad” testimony before Congress; calling his behavior “dangerous and ridiculous.”

“Wow. Robert Mueller changing the job of a prosecutor from proving someone ‘Guilty beyond a reasonable doubt’ to ‘Not being able to exonerate someone accused of a crime.’ Dangerous and ridiculous. Thus far Mueller completely contradicts what he told AG Barr about the reason not to proceed on the obstruction of justice. He told AG Barr that the decision not to proceed was not solely based on the OLC opinion but on complicated facts in the law. Mueller hearing becoming very confusing and sad,” posted Graham on social media.

The mainstream media is already downplaying Robert Mueller’s highly-anticipated testimony hours before its conclusion; labeling the event a ‘Day of Disappointments’ for Congressional Democrats.

Former Trump campaign associate Carter Page spoke with Sean Hannity Thursday night on the escalating scandal surrounding potential “spying” during the 2016 election; saying he “wants the truth out there” about the now-debunked Steele Dossier.

“They used you to backdoor their way into all things that were Donald Trump’s campaign. Your reaction?” asked Hannity.

“Absolutely right, as you’ve been saying for the last couple of years… They accused me of being responsible for WikiLeaks in conjunction with Paul Manafort who I’ve never met or spoken with in my entire life,” said Page.

“I want the truth out there, the quicker we can get to the bottom of this the better,” he added.
