THE WASHINGTON TIMES - A conservative nonprofit has filed a federal lawsuit accusing the Hillary Clinton campaign of violating election laws when it paid British citizen Christopher Steele to gather Kremlin-provided political dirt on candidate Donald Trump.
The presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid for research that was included in a dossier made public in January that contains salacious claims about connections between Donald Trump, his associates and Russia. The 35-page dossier, spiced up with tales of prostitutes and spies, sketched out a hair-raising story more than two years ago.
PATRIOT NEWS ALERTS - Quite frankly, it is pretty amazing it took this long for someone to go after Hillary on this issue. The lawsuit is centered around the Steele dossier. After the dossier was abandoned by a Never Trump conservative, an attorney representing both the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC ponied up the cash for the dossier. While Fusion GPS was the organization that brokered the deal, the dossier itself was put together by British national Christopher Steele. It is against election laws for any candidate to accept anything of value from a foreign national.
This is coming as a nasty shock to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee because at some point they thought they will be walking free.
