Default Hermitage Capital CEO: Russia Paid Company That Made Trump Dossier

My, my, turns out the fake news dossier so eagerly embraced by CNN was funded by the Russian boogeyman the Trump is supposed to have colluded with.

Quote:
The firm that produced a dossier on then candidate Donald Trump was working for the Russian government and was being paid by a Kremlin official, a financier who lobbied for the controversial Magnitsky Act said Thursday.

Hermitage Capital Management CEO Bill Browder told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that Fusion GPS was acting as a foreign agent and should have registered as such in the United States.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked Browder, "You believe that Fusion GPS should have registered under FARA because they were acting on behalf of the Russians?"

Browder replied yes, to which Graham said, "I just want to absorb that for a moment. The group that did the dossier on President Trump hired this British spy, wound up getting it to the FBI. You believe they were working for the Russians?"

Browder then said, "in the spring and summer of 2016, they were receiving money indirectly from a senior Russian government official."
Keep in mind CNN wasn't the only consumer of the fake dossier, it was passed to the FBI and from there became part of the supplemental material presented to President Obama. Yep, the so-called unimpeachable conclusion that Russia interfered with the election to help Trump was based in part on a Russian funded fake dossier.

But don't expect the self appointed guardians of fact in the media to even acknowledge the possibility of a Russian disinformation campaign.

Quote:
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hit back at the media Thursday for not covering Browder's testimony or asking questions about it during the daily White House press briefing.

You guys love to talk about Russia, and there's been nonstop coverage," Sanders said. "Then the one day that there might have been a question on Russia, there wasn't.
