NYT Reporter: Clinton Campaign Lawyer Lied To Me About Dossier Funding

By  Paul Bois

On the heels of an explosive report alleging that the Hillary Clinton campaign helped pay for that infamous Trump-Russia dossier, known in some circles as the “golden showers dossier,” two New York Times reporters have publicly accused Clinton’s campaign lawyer, Marc Elias, of lying to them about funding the research.

The report published by the The Washington Post on Tuesday revealed that Elias’ law firm hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. The infamous “golden showers” dossier alleged that Trump had personal ties to Russia, had colluded with them to harm Hillary’s campaign, and engaged in unsavory sexual practices with Russian hookers when visiting the country. When BuzzFeed published the dossier without confirming the dossier’s veracity, the information within was largely regarded by intelligence experts as untrustworthy.

“When I tried to report this story, Clinton campaign lawyer @marceelias pushed back vigorously, saying ‘You (or your sources) are wrong,'” NYT reporter Kenneth Vogel tweeted.

Maggie Haberman of the NYT echoed Vogel’s assertions. “Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year,” she tweeted.

Perhaps most alarming, The Washington Post story confirmed that the FBI, then under the leadership of Director James Comey, had arranged to pay former MI6 agent Steele to continue gathering intelligence on Trump following the election. The deal imploded when news reports blew Steele’s cover.
