HAPPENING NOW: Feinstein Was Just Connected to Dirty Dossier

Well, well, well, look who else is connected to the debunked Russian dossier.

It’s none other than Senator Dianne Feinstein, whose top aide worked with Fusion GPS to try and bring down President Trump.

From Zero Hedge

A former top staffer for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) appears to be part of a post-election effort by opposition research firm Fusion GPS to verify claims contained in a series of memos alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, based on leaked texts and Congressional documents.

As The Federalist’s Sean Davis reports, Congressional documents and recently leaked texts between Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and a lobbyist representing a Russian aluminum oligarch suggest that Daniel J. Jones, an ex-FBI investigator and former Feinstein staffer who rose to professional fame after writing a controversial top-secret report on CIA torture, is “intimately involved with ongoing efforts to retroactively validate a series of salacious and unverified memos published by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, and Fusion GPS.”

Of note, Jones currently runs the Penn Quarter Group, a “research and invesigative advisory” firm whose website was registered in April of 2016, days before Steele delivered his first in a series of Trump-Russia memos. Jones began tweeting out articles suggesting illicit ties between the Trump campaign and Russia as early as 2017.

The dossier, used by the FBI to secure secret wiretaps on Trump campaign affiliates, has become central to efforts by Congressional investigators investigating Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. election.

And while the dossier has come under fire for “salacious and unverified” claims, a January 8 New York Times profile of Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, confirms that dossier-related work continues.
