Former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said via her spox on Wednesday evening that she was unaware of the Russian dossier funding following WaPo’s bombshell report.
The DNC responded to WaPo’s bombshell report claiming the DNC was involved in the funding of the debunked dossier through a spokesperson. It appeared that the DNC was throwing Wasserman Schultz under the bus in their response.
“Tom Perez and the new leadership of the DNC were not involved in any decision-making regarding Fusion GPS, nor were they aware that Perkins Coie was working with the organization.”
DNC’s deputy chairman Keith Ellison also threw Wasserman Schultz under the bus by distancing himself from the old DNC leadership:
“Tom and me, we weren’t even there at the time,” Ellison told The Hill. “I know as much about it as you guys who have reported it.”
The Washington Post published a bombshell on the discredited Trump dossier on Tuesday.
Earlier on The Gateway Pundit the WaPo article claims the 2016 presidential campaign of Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee paid for the Fusion GPS dossier alleging Russian ties with the presidential campaign of Republican Donald Trump and sordid phony personal smears of Trump.The Post reported that Clinton campaign and DNC lawyer Marc Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS to continue researching Trump after a Republican donor who originally funded the research pulled out in April 2016.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz who is tangled up in the Imran Awan Pakistani IT staffer scandal denied having any knowledge of the DNC’s involvement in the funding of the Russian dossier.
A spokesperson for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (R-Fla.), who was forced out as DNC chairwoman at the party’s national convention in 2016, also denied knowing about the arrangement.
“She was not aware of anything related to this research arrangement,” spokesman David Damron said.
Democratic officials said that the national party was not empowered to make campaign decisions, particularly at a time when it was racked by controversy over leaked emails and while its chairwoman was being forced out.
“I doubt that any of the leadership at the DNC was even aware,” a Democratic official said.
So now the DNC is turning on Hillary Clinton as they deny deny deny. Why would they have her back anyway? She threw the DNC under the bus at a Recode conference earlier this year.
The rats are jumping off the sinking Clinton ship.
