“Who paid for it?
During the Republican primaries, a research firm called Fusion GPS was hired by The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website, to unearth potentially damaging information about Mr. Trump. The Free Beacon — which was funded by a major donor supporting Mr. Trump’s rival for the party’s nomination, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida — told Fusion GPS to stop doing research on Mr. Trump in May 2016, as Mr. Trump was clinching the Republican nomination.”

The free beacon is a private publication, their use of fusion gps predates the Steele docier. The dnc then separately funded the Steele docier after trump had secured the nomination. The separate contracts had nothing to do with each other and no information used in the free becon was used for the dnc.  The difference is a private party (becon) and a political party (dnc) wanting dirt on an individual. The dnc should be under investigation.

I don’t know but if any information was passed on to him by free becon it obviously was not enough, trump trounced Rubio and you sure didn’t hear Marco roll out the Russian hooker pee angle.

I was reminded that when it was Bush v Gore in the general, Gore was handed the RNC's debate prep questions and other highly sensitive campaign documents. To their credit, Gore and the Dems practically walked these documents back to the RNC within mere moments of receiving them, no questions asked.

Civility is possible, but unlikely in this new day and age.

Who is "they," how did "they" hope it would go, and how is it not going that way?

The recent meeting with Hope Hicks is questionable on air force one.

Manafort listed his penthouse as a second home on a mortgage application, but it was actually a rental that he claimed on his taxes.  Doh! 

Don't commit mortgage fraud kiddos... because if you happen to serve on a campaign that the establishment hates, they will prosecute you for it!

I noticed your typing is similar to Starman. By the sentence structure. After the first sentence of the paragraph, the following sentences started with a double space.

(Just an observation. However, I can be wrong.)

More than the cartoonish gifs , I love reading all the head scratching links the MAGA crowd pulls their copy and paste items from ... head stuff. Org  , (what was that ?)  biz pac man .com , etc

It’s like they religiously click through all the sponsored content ad websites links at the bottom of web pages that other people ignore  :)
