First, I don't know how you can say its not true...It's actually old news...

The Clinton Campaign paid a law firm to use as a middleman, who paid Fusion GPS, who contracted Steele for the dossier...

Clinton Campaign, DNC Helped Fund Research That Became Notorious Trump 'Dossier'

Quote:
A law firm representing the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund opposition research that eventually became a controversial dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump, a source confirmed to NBC News Tuesday.

The Washington Post, which first reported the funding of the research earlier Tuesday, said it shows the Clinton campaign and the DNC helped pay for what would become the dossier that contained unverified and salacious allegations about Trump.

"To aid in its representation of the Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee, [the law firm] Perkins Coie retained [intelligence firm] Fusion GPS, entering into an engagement for research services that began in April 2016 and concluded before the election in early November," a source familiar with the situation told NBC News.
But as to the second part if your question, ("what crime was committed in compiling that information?")...

The problem here is the lack of consistency within the Mueller investigation...

If people within the Trump campaign are guilty of colluding with foreign agents to get dirt on his political opponent (Hillary), then people within the Hillary Campaign (and the Democrat National Party) are EQUALLY guilty of colluding with foreign agents to get dirt on HER political opponent (Trump)...

OR...

If people within the Hillary campaign (and the Democrat National Party) are NOT guilty, even though they colluded with foreign agents to get dirt on her political opponent (Trump), then people within the Trump Campaign are EQUALLY NOT guilty, even though they colluded with foreign agents to get dirt on his political opponent (Hillary)...

It is simply UNEQUAL application of the law to say both sides did the same thing, yet only one of them is accountable while the other gets a free pass...
