Did Steele Know That He Was Being Paid From A Dem Or Hillary Account?.....

I thought he was hired by a third party company - was it Fusion GPS and they paid him.

4. The Repugs Are Criticizing Steele For Being Anti-Trump And Partisan.....

If he didn't know who the money was coming from that he was being paid - seems like his work is really non-biased.

Just one more talking point to refute the Repugs.

3. Oh FFS...

1. If the stupidest man in the world says the sun is shining, that doesn't mean it's raining outside. The source doesn't invalidate the data.

2. It doesn't matter. It just doesn't matter.


It's a smoke screen.

And, BTW, Steele is a fucking spy. I think he knew who was paying him and why.

5. Initially a GOP donor requested it thru Fusion and

apparently there was major work done with it. GOPers only mention Dems/Clinton, of course they lie. Campaigns do do opposition research on opponents. Mueller is investigating election meddling besides other un-Americans things.

The GOPers are full of shit. Steele tried to protect asswipe. Fuck them.

7. But At Anytime Did Steele Know That The Money Was Coming From....

a GOP donor or Dems/Clinton. If he was hired and paid from Fusion - he did his work totally unbiased. It didn't matter where the original money was actually coming from. I think that is an important point to highlight if that was the case.

6. Steele seems like a smart guy

he probably knew when Fusion GPS contacted him it was for Republican opposition research, and since it continued until after Trump won the nomination, it was likely for Democratic opposition research. He probably didn't care as long as he was getting paid, but became concerned about the treasonous level of interacton with the Russians...

8. Or that the GOP was paying him in the beginning of the investigation. Dems picked it up after...

GOP dropped it when it became apparent that Trump was going to be the nominee.

9. Know?

He was probably smart enough to figure it out, but there'd be no real reason for him to ask GPS or for them to share that info.
