Hillary Clinton has repeatedly said she knew nothing about the anti-Trump “dossier” released during the 2016 presidential campaign. There’s no reason to believe her considering her team funded the whole thing. Now, campaign manager Robby Mook makes it crystal clear: her campaign was behind it all.

Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook Opens Up About The Trump Dossier [VIDEO]
Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Friday that he instructed the campaign’s legal team to conduct the opposition research that led to the infamous anti-Trump dossier.
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Mook also suggested that he and others on the campaign were briefed on some of the findings in the dossier, which was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.
Mook did say that he was not aware that Steele was involved in the opposition research.
Mook is the first member of the Clinton campaign to acknowledge having any awareness of the Trump investigation, which was commissioned by opposition research firm Fusion GPS. Hillary Clinton herself said earlier this week that she did not know her campaign was behind the funding for the dossier.
Last week, the law firm Perkins Coie, which represented the Clinton campaign and DNC, revealed that it hired Fusion GPS in April 2016. Marc Elias, a Perkins Coie partner and general counsel for the campaign and DNC, oversaw the operation.
In June 2016, the Washington, D.C.-based Fusion GPS hired Steele to investigate Trump’s activities in Russia. Fusion GPS disclosed earlier this week that it was paid $1.02 million for its work. Of that, the firm paid Steele $168,000.
One day we’ll know for certain Hillary’s actual role and it will ruin her. Take that to the bank.
