Soros-Backed Fortune Tied to Steele Dossier

The Democracy Integrity Project, a liberal nonprofit founded by a former confidant of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and partially funded by George Soros, paid firms tied to Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele over $3.8 million in 2017.

Now, IRS filings conclusively show that the group provided its findings to "government entities." (The Daily Caller)
 

The payments made by The Democracy Integrity Project are more than three times what the DNC and the Clinton campaign paid Fusion GPS and Steele during the 2016 presidential campaign to investigate Donald Trump’s possible ties to Russia.

Perkins Coie, the law firm that represented the DNC and Clinton campaign, paid $1 million to Fusion GPS in 2016 to investigate Trump. Fusion GPS in turn paid Steele, a former MI6 officer, nearly $170,000 for a project that resulted in the infamous Steele dossier.

Steele’s report, which alleged a “well-coordinated conspiracy” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, has come under intense scrutiny in the wake of the special counsel’s findings in the 22-month Russia probe.

Daniel J. Jones, a former staffer to California Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein, founded TDIP on Jan. 31, 2017, seemingly to resume Democrats’ investigation of Trump’s possible links to Russia.
