Hillary Campaign Created Russia Conspiracy Theory to Challenge 2016 Election Results

Every revelation about the Steele dossier, the Clinton campaign’s Russia conspiracy theory that was funneled into the DOJ and then used as the basis for everything from eavesdropping on the political opposition to the Mueller investigation, just makes it worse.

And this latest revelation is particularly bad.

British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who wrote the Democrat-financed anti-Trump dossier, said in a court case that he was hired by a Democratic law firm in preparation for Hillary Clinton challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election.

In an answer to interrogatories, Mr. Steele wrote: “Fusion’s immediate client was law firm Perkins Coie. It engaged Fusion to obtain information necessary for Perkins Coie LLP to provide legal advice on the potential impact of Russian involvement on the legal validity of the outcome of the 2016 US Presidential election.

“Based on that advice, parties such as the Democratic National Committee and HFACC Inc. (also known as ‘Hillary for America’) could consider steps they would be legally entitled to take to challenge the validity of the outcome of that election.”

Why is this particularly bad?

Opposition research is slimy, but fair game, even if you get it from the Russians. But this wasn’t just opposition research. It was a lever to overturn the results of a free and fair election using a conspiracy theory derived from a former British intel agent with some Russian help.

This is, and has always been, the real threat to the 2016 election. Collusion between the Clinton campaign, the Russian and the Obama DOJ.
