Hillary Clinton defends funding the Russian dossier

November 2, 2017

  A couple of weeks ago we learned that the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign (which apparently according to  new book soon to be released by Donna Brazile were basically one and the same organization) were funding  Fusion GPS at the time the group’s research morphed from opposition research into colluding with a foreign agent with ties to Russia.

  Yesterday Hillary Clinton defended funding the Russian dossier, here is what she had to say:

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday defended paying for a controversial dossier that alleged ties between President Donald Trump and Russia during the 2016 election.

In a late-night interview on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” Clinton said there was a difference between her campaign paying for legal opposition research and Trump’s team possibly working with Russia to influence the election.

“I think most serious people understand that,” Clinton said. “This was research started by a Republican donor during the Republican primary, and when Trump got the nomination for the Republican Party, the people doing it came to my campaign lawyer.”

“He said ‘yes,’” Clinton added, referring to her campaign lawyer, Marc Elias. “He’s an experienced lawyer, he knows what the law is, he knows what opposition research is.”

  At least, after two weeks of silence on the issue, the failed Presidential candidate admitted she funded the document which is now the basis for the Russia collusion investigation. This is also an admission that the Clinton campaign was doing exactly what the Trump campaign is accused of doing.

  But she went on:

“I mean, he has to know — we’ll find out what he knew and how involved he was — but he had to know that people were making outreach to Russians, to the highest levels of the Kremlin, in order to help him, to hurt me, but more importantly to sow this divisiveness,” she added.

  This is twisted logic and makes no sense: she is basically saying that it was okay for her to use Fusion GPS after the group started colluding with foreign agents in order to hurt Donald Trump because Donald Trump is actually the candidate that was colluding with a foreign government to hurt her even though to date there is no proof.

  I honestly am at a total loss of words here over Hillary Clinton’s hypocrisy on this issue! Here we have Hillary Clinton bashing Donald Trump for alleged collusion with the Russians while admitting and defending her collusion with the Russians. She is either delusional or she thinks the American people are stupid.

    Did you expect a logical explanation from Hillary [sarc]

    She knows at least half of the voters are stupid because they voted for her.

    So they hired a firm that basically ripped them off.

    Delusional or stupid? A little of both really. In Hillary’s case, definitely delusional, she’s not stupid. Her followers and supporters are a mixed bag of looney and stupid. See what too much Kool Aide does?

    CNN buried the story, but they did report it – both a story on Brazile’s book on Hillary hijacking the DNC and a reaction story from Elizabeth Warren.

    Jabberwocky sells in this dumbed down nation of ours. More than half the people in all 57 states have trouble sleeping nights because she lost the White House. She will never go away and she will never go to jail.

      It is funny but I am enjoying the fact she refuses to go away. I find it entertaining to listen to her blame everyone else.

        I think her not going away and hogging the spotlight are why the Dems are in a panic mode. She won’t stay under the bus! It must be that special suit she wears.

        Why is it I fail to believe the dems are in a panic mode? I firmly believe that with the media doing its job the Senate and possibly the House will go to them next November. With the dems having an iron grip on the blue states such as NJ (where I reside) and several red states vacillating, what am I missing. Where is the RINO campaign showcasing the latest socialist failure, Venezuela, where there are food and medicine shortages, an economy cash poor despite some of the world’s largest oil reserves? Where is their campaign showcasing the nation being overwhelmed by the drugs being brought in through the southern border while the blue states protect both the cartels and the illegals, shielding them from law enforcement? Why aren’t the republicans in congress calling for the arrest of Chuckie Cheese Schumer, calling him responsible for the latest Islamist slaughter in New York? It’s because they’re too busy reaching across the aisle trying for a knockout punch against Trump. I fail to see the demorats in a panic mode.

        I think you are right CJ. I think the Dems can’t wait for this book tour to end but I think Hillary needs the spotlight and will have trouble letting it go.

        It is frustrating the Republicans are so bad with messaging, they just don’t have the tenacity of the Democrats.

    She sure can spin a tale can’t she… now with that angelic face she puts on, the voice an octave lower and half the decibels. No more “Why aren’t I ahead by fifty points” volume and screech.
