Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund the research that resulted in the so-called…..
“Trump dossier” that contained scandalous material tying President Trump to Russia, according to a report Tuesday.
FUSION GPS: A Washington opposition research firm, was hired by the Clinton campaign and DNC lawyer Mark Elias to oversee the research on then candidate Trump.
Fusion GPS then hired former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who wrote the dossier.
The Clinton campaign and the DNC financed Fusion GPS’s research up until just days before the Nov. 8 election.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: The only the report came out was because he urged the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to “Immediately” release any information they might have on who paid for the dossier.
Officials behind the now discredited "Dossier" plead the Fifth. Justice Department and/or FBI should immediately release who paid for it.

The tweet followed a House Intelligence Committee hearing last week with Fusion GPS, where the company used their Fifth Amendment rights to not respond to questions, according to a lawyer representing them.
It was also revealed Saturday that chairman of the House intelligence panel, Rep. Devin Nunes issued a subpoena on Fusion GPS’s bank record to gain information regarding funding of the dossier. Fusion GPS asked a judge to stop the bank from obeying the subpoena.
