Democrats Abandon Hillary: 'New' & 'Old' DNC Deny Knowledge Of Trump Dossier Funding

Tyler Durden's picture

Last night it was Tom Perez and the 'new' Democratic National Committee that disavowed all knowledge of how the infamous 'Trump Dossier' was funded by the Clinton Campaign. Tonight it is none other than Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the 'old' DNC that has abandoned Hillary.

As The Hill reports, current and past leaders of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) say they had no knowledge that the national party was helping to fund a dossier compiled by a British spy that contained scandalous accusations about President Trump.

Last night, current DNC communications director Xochitl Hinojosa said chairman Tom Perez, who only became the Democratic leader in April, had nothing to do with the arrangement.

"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."

And now tonight, the avalanche is beginning...

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the DNC’s deputy chairman, emphasized that both he and Perez came to the DNC long after the contract with Fusion GPS had ended.

“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.”

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.

The denials are likely to increase focus on the Clinton campaign.

None of it matters if there is no prosecution of anyone.

Minimize, project- these fuckers don't even bother to try a new playbook.....

What I'm NOT hearing is this:  "Yeah, we have a problem within the DNC, and we need to get to the bottom of it ourselves".

Mr President,

Where are we to submit our bids along with working prototypes for the cankle cuffs that will need to be constructed?

The cankles must be something.  A guy I know who worked in politics told me about them in 1993.

Love him or hate him Big Don is proving to be a masterful tactician.

Other day he tweets something like: who paid for the dossier, FBI, DNC Clinton?. All the fish couldnt wait pile onto his hook.

Lol...

Nobody knows anything but they were all fucking sure Trump was a Russian agent.

Comedy that can't be written.

This is the end of the DNC as a national party.

The party of White-haters and old burnouts gets its due.

"This is the end of the DNC as a national party."

No, it isn't.  I know why you feel that way but you're wrong.

You're probably right, but it will be fun to watch the witch addressing the vast left wing conspiracy for an ironic change.

But why now?  Why suddenly MSM starting to report on this?

I'm guessing that Hillary has dumped DWS and now it's payback time. There's no honor amongst criminals....

...but they certainly sense when to bail

There comes a time at which the foul stench of a rotting carcass is unbearable, even to the anosmatic who make use of sensory compensation to reach the same conclusion.

NoDebt's picture

Notice how this is all getting boiled down to a simple failure to disclose certain election spending?  When the narrative was that Trump colluded with the Ruskies, it was Impleachement time.  When it's Hillary paying for invented Russian dossier shit about Trump to sway the election it's just a failure to disclose some election fund spending.

What's the penalty for that?  Practically nothing.  Hell, she could file an amended FEC campaign spending report tomorrow and say "oops, sorry, forgot to disclose that" and it would be OVER.

NOBODY is going to jail over this, certainly not Hillary.

True. But it would still be priceless if Bill would also publicly distance himself from Hillary. "You're on your own from now on, dear".

NoDebt's picture

That's an awesome thought.  Never occurred to me that Bill might use this as an excuse to finally ditch Cankles.  I wish I could give you more than one up-vote for that.  You just made my night.

Democrats Abandon Hillary: 'New' & 'Old' DNC Deny Knowledge Of Trump Dossier Funding

My response: HRC's life as a CAREER CRIMINAL appears to be coming to an abrupt end. I wonder if her PROFESSORSHIP OFFER from Columbia University has been revoked?

Hillary and the DNC may want to listen to the sermon by Jonathan Edwards titled SINNERS IN THE HANDS OF AN ANGRY GOD to see just how much trouble they really are in. Hillary and DNC, I have provided the youtube link for your convenience below.

Read that one in a college lit class.

 

The God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider or some loathsome insect over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked. His wrath towards you burns like fire; he looks upon you as worthy of nothing else but to be cast into the fire. He is of purer eyes than to bear you in his sight; you are ten thousand times as abominable in his eyes as the most hateful, venomous serpent is in ours.

Spiders are NOT loathsome, and keep the insects down to a balanced level.  I'm sorry for those who think God is some vengeful teenager, meeting out his wrath.  I'm certain it is with great sorrow that he seperates himself from each soul. And BTW: The "serpents" keep the rodents down, and unless you are a fan of hemoragic fevers, they deserve your thanks and protection.

This is so true. Hillary knows the law. She knows that even if she is caught that it is only a minor FEC disclosure crime. When in actuality the 'reward' is much larger than the penalty, then expect for these things to happen regularly. Time to change the laws and make these things punishable by death (because this is people actually influence our government and elections which affect every American). Only then will you bring true Statesmen back to politics and the rats will jump ship.

It is past time for crooks to pay the real price for their crimes.

To b accurate:

I knew eveything because I orchestrated it all......I see no prosecution because I have bribes everywhere.......I may have been the neighbourhood doing a fund raiser for disadvantaged folks.

 

Slime.  Beyond me how this type of brain functions with any type of peace Cog.  However as much as it may prove productive to discuss this level of "preying" and lies?

Never produces any change.

Imagine if you lived in that lying ego?

My response: As I read the text below, the only thought that came to mind was how fast the DEMOCRATIC RATS ARE ABANDONING THE "CLINTON" SHIP! Simply amazing!!! Democrats in this text are of questionable CHARACTER to say the least.

We need to remember that SETH RICH died for this corrupt, evil DNC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are not going to hear this out of the DNC, what they've been doing is standard operating procedure. They just got caught this time...lol.

Ya nooowah!...what the DNC really needs is a better class of lying criminal overlord, a moar deliberate, statesman-like, believable, lip biting-feel-your-pain-snake-in-the-grass-kinda-guy.

He's tanned, rested and ready...Joe Biden baby ;-)

In other news Hillary issued a press release saying "What difference at this point does it make?  This is all a bunch of stale baloney."

All further inquiries into this matter have been dropped in the face of this indisputable logic.
